Bond DVD Frozen out by Disney hit

Frozen has overtaken Bond film Skyfall to become the second biggest-selling movie DVD of the decade.

It is one of only three releases to shift more than three million copies from 2010 onwards, with only Avatar standing in its way as the biggest seller, according to figures from the Official Charts Company.

Frozen fans also learned today that a forthcoming short spin-off film - Frozen Fever - will open in cinemas on March 27 as the opener for new Disney live action film Cinderella.

The short, which reunites stars Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell and Jonathan Groff with the Oscar-winning directing team Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, will tell the story of Elsa and Kristoff's attempt to plan a birthday party for Anna.

DVD and Blu-ray sales of Frozen last week amounted to 160,000 copies, pushing it through the three million barrier.

It has also become one of the biggest DVD releases of all time, standing at number 15 in the list.

Frozen has amassed enormous sales since its release in the spring, shifting 899,000 copies in its first week, and it is the biggest animated movie of all time.

The soundtrack is the second biggest selling album of the year with more than 800,000 copies sold. The song Let It Go has achieved 779,000 sales.

Official Charts Company chief executive Martin Talbot said: "The British fans have taken Olaf and his pals to their hearts this year."
