It is hard to believe that Frozen is the 53rd Walt Disney Animation Studios release. What looks like a simple premise based on Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale The Snow Queen has gone on to become the highest grossing animated film in history. Probably more impressive is the fact that Frozen also stands (in January 2015) as the 5th highest grossing film of all time and the 3rd biggest moneymaker ever released in Japan. LEGO entered a partnership with Disney to release Frozen play sets, with Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle certainly deserving a closer inspection.
