NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
"Frozen" is turning out to be one of Disney's biggest money-making juggernauts.
It is already the highest grossing animated movie of all time, raking in $1.19 billion in global box office sales since its Thanksgiving release.
It's on track to be the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, and is already Disney's(DIS) biggest selling digital and Blu-ray release.
"This is definitely up there in terms of our top, probably, five franchises," said Disney CEO Bob Iger in a conference call last week after Disney reported a 27% surge in profits. "So you can expect us to take full advantage of that over the next at least five years."
