Disney Announces Success of "Tangled"

Disney’s Tangled Passes $100 Million in Domestic Box Office Receipts

BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Disney’s 50th animated feature film, Tangled, passed the $100 million mark at the domestic box office today. Tangled, which began its theatrical run over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, becomes the 68th title in the history of The Walt Disney Studios to reach this milestone. In addition, Tangled is the only film this year to earn an A+ CinemaScore, the highest rating to be given by moviegoing audiences.

“With its creative storytelling and lovable characters, Tangled is the sort of cinematic adventure that makes Disney films so appealing to audiences of all ages,” said Rich Ross, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. “We’re so thrilled that audiences love it as much as we do, and we’re looking forward to a great run through the holiday season.”

Tangled got off to a tremendous start during its opening weekend (Nov. 24-28), grossing $69 million to become the highest opening ever for Walt Disney Animation Studios and the second biggest Thanksgiving weekend opener in history behind Disney•Pixar’s own Toy Story 2.

The film has already opened in approximately 35% of the international marketplace and has taken in more than $56M. In Russia, Tangled had the biggest animated opening in Disney’s history and has become Disney’s biggest animated film of all time in the region.
