Disney is on track to cross the $10 billion barrier at the global box office today (December 9) with its combined releases of 2019.

According to Screen Daily, the estimated results for Frozen 2 this weekend take the global box office for The Walt Disney Studios for the year to $9.997 billion worldwide.
