The soundtrack was the second chart-topping soundtrack of 2014 and was No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for 2 weeks.

Disney's "Into the Woods," with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, has earned over $91 million since its domestic debut on Christmas Day. The star-studded film, directed by Rob Marshall, posted the fourth-biggest Christmas Day opening ever and the biggest opening weekend ever for a Broadway musical adaptation.

The Academy Award®-winning "Frozen" is the fifth highest grossing film of all time and the highest grossing animated film with more than $1.27 billion globally. Released wide domestically on Nov. 27, 2013, "Frozen" posted the #1 industry all-time Thanksgiving debut and Walt Disney Animation Studios' biggest opening ever. The Frozen soundtrack is the top-selling album of 2014 to date and spent 33 weeks in the top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart, including 13 weeks at No. 1. It is certified triple Platinum, selling more than 3.8 million units. The "Let It Go" film clip from "Frozen" has been viewed nearly 400 million times on YouTube.
