Frozen 2 raked in $127 million (£98.9 million) in its opening weekend in the United States, beating forecasts and the box office debut of the original Frozen. The film, which cost around $50 million to produce, is a certified box office bomb with just $13.9 million to its name in North America.

The sequel kicked off above expectations ahead of Thanksgiving, which should parlay into an especially lucrative holiday frame.

The opening sets a record for an animated movie released outside of the summer season. It was the highest opening weekend ever for an animated movie in France and the UK.

As per a report in BoxOfficeIndia.com, the film has doubled its collections on the second day as it collected Rs. 6.75 crore nett on Saturday.

Frozen 2 was directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck and stars Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad. With more original songs written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the family-friendly flick features new additions to the voice cast, mainly Evan Rachel Wood, Sterling K.
