'Frozen' new highest-grossing animated film: What's your favorite?

Disney's hit musical "Frozen" became the highest-grossing animated movie of all time over the weekend, pushing its estimated worldwide box-office haul to $1.072 billion and unseating "Toy Story 3" for the top spot. Now we're curious to hear what your favorite animated movie is among the top grossers.

Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, "Frozen," a loose retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "The Snow Queen," boasts two Academy Awards — for animated feature and original song — in addition to its seat on the box-office throne.

"Toy Story 3," which was released in 2010 and took in $1.06 billion, won the same two Oscars and also became the first animated movie in history to cross the $1-billion mark.
