'Moana' Sets Sail To Surpass 'Frozen' In Thanksgiving Box Office Record

'Moana' Sets Sail To Surpass 'Frozen' In Thanksgiving Box Office Record

Disney looks like it is beating itself going into this Thanksgiving weekend. The studio’s latest animated offering, “Moana,” about a defiant Polynesian princess on a heroine’s quest to save her people and restore the planet’s ecological balance, took in $15.6 million at the box office Wednesday, its first full day of release, running ahead of the studio’s smash hit “Frozen,” which drew $15.16 million on Thanksgiving Eve in 2013.

While “Moana” is projected to earn more than $80 million over the five-day holiday weekend, that wouldn’t melt “Frozen,” which still holds the Thanksgiving five-day opening record, of $93.6 million. With runaway hits like “Finding Dory” and “Zootopia” under its belt, and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” looming, Disney is having a banner year. “Moana” is also holding a 97 percent fresh rating on the review-aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes, a hair behind “Zootopia,” at 98 percent.
