A relatively small drop in weekend takings means the animated feature takes $18.8 million which brings its total to $145 million.
The film wont go down as an absolute Disney classic but it will be one of their good grossing films in the same vein as say Tangled.
Office Christmas Party comes in at 2 this week, maybe bette than expected for a brain out comedy. It takes $17.5 million for the weekend.
Highest total grossing movie on the US box office this week is Doctor Strange which is still in the top 5, at 5, and has taken $222.3 million.
Longest total running film of the week is split 3 way between Doctor Strange, Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge all having spent 6 weeks.
With a debut weekend of $55 million over the Friday to Sunday they can't complain, and the long weekend from Wednesday night saw the film gain over $80 million.
With many families out shopping on the big retail weekend that includes black Friday this isn't such a bad debut, and with good reviews this could well go on and on for Disney.
Next weekend will be the big test, no new child friendly film are set for a release in the coming weeks which is good for Moana but then they get the Galaxy Far Far away to deal with, but who from, yes Disney, the Mouse House should have a good holiday.
Last weeks top film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, fell to number 2 this weekend and gained $45 million, this brings the films US total to $156 million, not the heights of Harry Potter.
Also new this week is America is Allied starring Brad Pitt at number 4 with $13 million and Bad Santa 2 at number 7 with $6 million and very bad reviews.
Longest stay on the US box office is split between 3 films, Doctor Strange, Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge all on 4 weeks, although the highest total grossing by a long margin is Doctor Strange with $205 million.

Highest new film of the week is the Mel Gibson directed Hacksaw Ridge which lands at number 5 this week with $16.4 million from 4 countries.
This is quite impressive considering the troubles career the actor/director has had in recent years and show that the name can still pull in the crowds.
Wides release of the week is Trolls which is at number 2 with $75.6 million from 68 countries while Doctor Strange is the film with the highest total gross.
Its a new IP for the superhero studio but these days that doesn't matter as Doctor Strange takes $84.9 million on its opening weekend of release.
Not as high as the more established series in the MCU but still a good opening and one which should see the film go up their with some of the best in the long running series.
Second on the chart this week is Troll which debuts with $45.6 million and coming in third is Hacksaw Ridge which takes $14.7 million.
Falling from the top after 2 weeks is Boo! A Madea Halloween, the film lands at 4 this week with $7.8 million, still good considering Halloween is a distant memory now.
Longest run on the UB box office this week is Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children which has now been around for 6 weeks, but the highest total grosser, on its debut, is Doctor Strange.
