Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee. Jennifer Lee was also the screenwriter for the blockbuster musical sensation. The movie is set three years after the events of the first film. The story follows Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf. They embark on a journey far from their kingdom in an attempt to seek the origin of Elsa’s magical powers and save their country after a mysterious voice calls out to Elsa.
Setting New Records!
The second part grossed over 1.3 billion dollars at the global box office. Hence, it managed to break the record of Frozen, which was 1.281 billion dollars. Although Jon Favreau’s remake of The Lion King earned 1.65 billion dollars in 2019, Disney considers it a live-action reboot rather than an animated movie since it was computer-generated.
