Olaf from "Frozen" is the subject of a short film fans didn't love. "Olaf's Frozen Adventure" was running before showings of "Coco" and there was speculation the run was ended because of audience complaints. "Frozen" was more of a phenomenon. Here's a look at some of the interesting numbers the project racked up as of 2014. Disney/imdb
The soundtrack for "Frozen," driven by such songs as "Let It Go" and "For the First Time in Forever," had sold 3 million copies by the summer of 2014, making it one of the top-performing albums of the year. courtesy disney
"Frozen" has also accumulated a box office tally of more than $1.27 billion, including $873 million internationally. That's a heck of a return on the film's budget, which was $150 million. The story was based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale "The Snow Queen." courtesy disney
"Frozen" spent two weekends as the US box office's No. 1 movie and 16 weeks in the top 10. courtesy disney
DVD and Blu-ray sales have been just as outstanding. The film has sold 7.6 million DVDs and another 6.5 million on Blu-ray. courtesy disney

Disney quickly added the Anna and Elsa characters to its theme parks. The wait to meet the two got to be as long as six hours at Epcot and almost as long at Disneyland. disney/ap
