It seems anyone has seen Frozen and listened to its powerful song “Let It Go” that once became your annoying LSS. Well, who hasn’t?
Frozen was released in 2013 and went on to become the highest grossing animated film of all time with over $1.287 billion in worldwide ticket sales. Not only that — it has launched a plethora of merchandise from DVD’s to clothes to plush toys… even waffle makers. Frozen-themed costumes and parties are also wildly popular.
Frozen is also considered as a groundbreaking animated film mainly because of the underlying themes of feminism and “girl power,” as well as the “act of true love” that is entirely different from the “true love” that you’ve seen in other animated Disney films.
Check out these Frozen facts that will surely melt your (not-so-frozen) heart…
