(NBC) - Sorry, Woody. With $1.072 billion already earned worldwide, "Frozen" has dethroned "Toy Story 3" to become the official top-grossing animated film of all time.

"Frozen" has thawed out a new spot in box office history. This weekend, the Oscar-winning Disney film became the top-grossing animated film of all time with $1.072 billion in domestic and international sales.

The film has surpassed original record holder "Toy Story 3," which had earned $1.063 billion. It takes up a berth as the No. 10 biggest global blockbuster, and is also the first billion-dollar film from Disney Animation Studios.

In another box office milestone, the Oscar-winning Disney film now occupies the number 10 spot on the list of biggest global blockbusters and could soon surpass "The Dark Knight Rises."

"Frozen" now also ranks as No. 7 among all of Disney's films, according to The Hollywood Reporter, having surpassed the live-action "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," which earned $1.06 billion.

The movie, about a young princess named Elsa with the power to create ice and snow, stars the voices of Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell.

"Frozen," inspired by "The Snow Queen" fairy tale, took home two Academy Awards and two Golden Globes this season for best animated feature and best original song. It looks like it's time to let it go, Buzz.
