Last one out of the Kinjaverse, turn out the lights.

The Highest Grossing Animated Movie award goes to... Frozen!

Yup, Highest Grossing Animated Movie...................... OF ALL TIME. You may be thinking, I'm a day early for April Fools (a day I am actually looking forward to), but Nope. It just took Toy Story 3 For the top spot (which grossed roughly 1 billion).

Now considering how long the film has been out a total of 5 months, thats really saying something.

There are the obvious:

  • Animated films are coming back
  • Musical Number type films (which were a huge part of my 90s) might be on its way back.
  • Disney is back to its animate films greatness.

But then there are several points that need to made, that makes this movie really stand out.

  • Beyond all the controversy 'Let it go'-gay-rights conspiracy, this movie has been accepted by ALL walks of life: Gay, straight, young, old, male, female. Grossing 1 Billion dollars world wide
  • Its a Disney princess movie, without the formulaic need of a prince. The real savoir of this movie was love. The argument has already been made that its more of 'lesbian-gay' love, but thats another argument for another day, this movie was about the bond between two people, regardless who they are.
  • It can be argued that this is proof to Hollywood that a new age of 'Women as both the protagonist and heroes' is upon us. Only time will tell.

To be honest, I wasnt a big fan of the film myself, but I did get a kick out of the Weasle-Town prince.

The success of this film is definitely worth noting both award wise and in the box office, when you consider the 'backlash' it has received.

I figure I should give the audience what it wants. Here you go!
