“Frozen”, Disney’s latest animated blockbuster, is now the biggest animated film in history. It’s crossed the one-billion dollar mark at $1.07 billion!
When it was released a couple of weeks ago to the home market, it sold more than 3.2 million blue-rays and DVDs and in February, it became the biggest digital release ever!
I finally got around to seeing it. Gretel, our 12-year-old daughter, has seen it several times already and loves it. She says it’s one of her favorite Disney movies.
I guess my expectations were too just high with its box office success and the Oscar win for Best Animated Feature. While I enjoyed the movie, it was no “Beauty and The Beast” and Belle will always be my favorite.
The “Frozen” soundtrack is just as popular as the movie. It’s the only album that has sold more than a million copies in 2014. Since its November release, the soundtrack has sold 1.8 million copies and has spent eight weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 album chart.
“Let It Go”, the first release from the album, picked up an Oscar for Best Original Song. That song by Adele Dazeem has been downloaded around 1.8 million times!
What? Damn you, John Travolta! You’re right, it’s not Adele Dazeem, it’s “Wicked” star Idina Menzel!
“Frozen” is now ready to melt dance clubs across the country. The song’s remix just debuted on the Billboard Dance Chart. While Dave Aude’s remix is great, this is my favorite version by Papercha$er.
This will be Menzel’s fourth dance chart hit. Her biggest hits on that chart were the #5 smash, “Defying Gravity”, from “Wicked” in 2007 and “Gorgeous” from her 2008 album, “I Stand”, peaked at #3.
