Lionsgate's WWII epic Midway fell three places to #5 with $4.7 million for a domestic total of $43.1 million and an global total of $81.7 million.
Frozen II's ending is fitting for the overall franchise as a whole and Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck mentioned to USA Today they feel the narrative in the first two movies tells a complete story, so there are now no plans for Frozen 3.
The original Frozen made box office history, becoming the top-grossing animated film. Propelled partially by the hit music "Let it Go", "Frozen" begat a flurry of merchandizing, untold numbers of Elsa clothes and a Broadway musical. "Six years is a pretty big gap, but the length of time doesn't matter when people feel invested in the characters".

It is the hotly anticipated sequel to the iconic 2013 Disney film, which has already broken box office records worldwide. So, how much has Frozen 2 made? They were all between $ 390 and $ 858 million this year. "Frozen 2" also broke a record in China for the biggest opening for an animated film with $55 million.
Matching that total gross won't be easy sledding, but "Frozen 2" has a head start. Frozen 2's worldwide opening weekend was helped by the fact that it opened in more territories upfront, unlike The Lion King and Toy Story 4, which had a staggered rollout. It was the highest opening weekend ever for an animated movie in France and the UK. And it's the largest opening for any Walt Disney Animation Studios release.
In the United States, the film made $130m - making it the biggest animated film opening for November, beating The Incredibles, The Grinch and the first Frozen. Before now, no animated film launching outside of summer has crossed the $100 million mark in its launch.
Set in fantastical land of Arendelle, Frozen is a story of two sisters Elsa and Anna who are on a path of finding acceptance and love, while trying to save their kingdom infused with heart-touching music and emotions.
