The film by directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck has continued to accumulate numbers in its second year, where it set a box-office record of the Thanksgiving weekend.

That huge figure is a new industry record, eclipsing $ 3 09 disk from 2018 which was also set up by The slate of Disney Juggernaut movies. Having long been on the field, Disney is practically just trying to beat his time at this point.
What is particularly remarkable is that $ 3.2 billion of Mouse House in 2019 does not take into account the box office receipts of the films that Disney has inherited 20 Century Fox when he bought that studio earlier this year. So the sales of movie tickets like Ad Astra and Ford v Ferrari are just the icing on the record cake.
