Disney’s newest film, Encanto, topped the US box office this week, which coincides with Thanksgiving. This Colombian cultural film earned US$40.3 million or equivalent to Rp577 billion.
This number was obtained by Encanto from broadcasting for five consecutive days from Wednesday (24/11) to Sunday (28/11) at 3,980 screening points in North America, as reported by Variety on Sunday (28/11) US time.
Variety noted that this number was lower than Disney’s animated films that were also released the previous Thanksgiving, such as Frozen II in 2019 (US$123.7 million), Ralph Breaks the Internet in 2018 (US$84.6 million), and Coco in 2017 (US$). $71 million).

This is an important note considering the audience from family groups still haven’t been to the cinema even though it’s Thanksgiving. In fact, when the holiday season arrives, especially the Thanksgiving holiday, animated films are classified as the highest-earning films.
