Animation Frozen becomes best-selling film since 2001 in Japan

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The Disney animation Frozen has become the first film to earn more than 20 billion yen (about $196 million) in box office revenue in Japan since Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was released in 2001, Walt Disney Studios Japan said Tuesday.

Frozen, which premiered in Japan on March 14, is now the fourth best-selling film of all time in the country following the Japanese animation Spirited Away, which brought in 30.4 billion yen, Hollywood film Titanic (26.2 billion yen) and the Philosopher's Stone (20.3 billion yen).

On a worldwide basis, Frozen, a musical animation based on a Hans Christian Andersen story, is now the fifth best-selling film in history, earning $1,219.27 million.

Disney's animated film Frozen has become the fifth highest-grossing film in box office history.

The Oscar-winning movie, which was released in the US in November, has taken $1.219bn (£723m) worldwide, overtaking Iron Man 3's total haul.

It now stands behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, with $1.34bn (£795m) in global ticket sales.

The feat comes two months after it was confirmed Frozen had become the highest-grossing animation in history.

The film's bumper haul has in part been due to its success in Japan, where Frozen has been number one at the box office for 11 consecutive weekends.

Some 15.6m tickets for the film - released as Anna to Yuki no Joou (Anna and the Snow Queen) - have been sold in the country, with many people reportedly watching both the original and Japanese dubbed version.

It is the third most successful Western movie in Japan, behind James Cameron's Titanic and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - known in the UK as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - although it is predicted to overtake the latter film this week.

Family film Frozen tells the tale of a Scandinavian princess who sets out to find her sister, a queen who has the power to freeze anything that she touches.

Frozen won two Oscars in March - best animated feature and best original song for Let It Go, sung by Idina Menzel.
