New figures have confirmed that 'Frozen 2' has already surpassed the original's box office earnings

'Frozen 2' has already surpassed the original's US box-office earnings.

The computer-animated movie was released earlier this year, following on from the money-spinning original, and new figures have confirmed that the new film has surpassed the 2013 movie at the box office.

The original 'Frozen' made $400.7 million at the box office in the US, whilst 'Frozen 2' has already gone past the $400 million mark at the box office.

The film has, in fact, become the seventh highest-grossing animated film of all time, with Disney predicting that it will soon enter the top five on the all-time list.

And, on a global scale, 'Frozen 2' has also proven to be a significant success, making as much as $1.16 billion in total.

Meanwhile, Idina Menzel recently admitted she would be "happy" to make multiple 'Frozen' films.

The Hollywood star voices Queen Elsa in the much-loved Disney franchise and Idina revealed that she wants to be involved in further films.

She said: "I can see a 'Frozen 3'. I can see a' Frozen 3', '4', and '5' – it's whether they want to make them. I'm happy to be involved."

Idina also revealed that she would be prepared to star in a third film at the European premiere of 'Frozen 2'.

When asked if she would star in a third film, Idina exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Of course."

Elsa (Menzel) and Anna (Bell) head off on a dangerous journey after Elsa hears voices calling her to a distant land. The plot is less involving than the character interaction, but Olaf (Gad) is the comedic highlight and while it may be less compelling than the original, it's got all the ingredients for a hit.
