Will Elsa Fall In Love With A Woman In ‘Frozen 2’?

Published

on

Frozen continues to be a huge hit for Disney with the highly anticipated sequel on the way. Though there aren’t a lot of details about what’s next to come for the characters, there’s one big rumor surrounding Queen Elsa (played by Idina Menzel). Particularly when it comes to her love interest!

Love Is Love

When Anna (Kristen Bell) ultimately fell in love with Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), it seemed only fair that her big sister Elsa would find someone too. There are reports that Disney may be straying from its traditional ways, possibly giving Elsa a girlfriend in the Frozen sequel. The rumors stem from an old theory about Elsa in the first film.

Fans first began speculating that Elsa could be a lesbian with the Oscar-winning song, “Let It Go.” It was seen as a coming out anthem, with the queen finally accepting herself exactly as she is. Some even launched a campaign online, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, to encourage Disney to move forward with the story plot for the sequel. If that were to actually happen, though, it surely wouldn’t come without its share of controversy.

Backlash Ahead?

Slowly but surely, Disney is taking steps forward to become more diverse. However, since the studio is still seen as traditional and family-friendly, it’s quite possible that this decision would cause some issues. That’s especially likely with Frozen being such a successful animated film.

Even recently, Disney caught heat with its 2017 remake of Beauty and the Beast. Director Bill Condon spilled that LeFou (Josh Gad) was gay in the film, and a few scenes alluded to that. It sparked boycotts and backlash from more conservative viewers, but the movie was still very successful. Even with any controversy, Frozen 2 would, most likely, still do well in theatres even if Disney decides to make Elsa’s character a lesbian. The film’s director actually wouldn’t be opposed to that happening!

Moving In The Right Direction

Jennifer Lee, who directed the first Frozen, is interested to see Elsa be a gay character. She can’t confirm whether the sequel will go in that direction just yet, though. “For me…Elsa’s every day telling me where she needs to go, and she’ll continue to tell us,” she said in an interview. “I always write from character-out, and where Elsa is and what Elsa’s doing in her life, she’s telling me every day. We’ll see where we go.”

Lee is also excited to see the character sparking necessary conversations about inclusion and acceptance of the LGTBQ community.  “I love everything people are saying [and] people are thinking about with our film― that it’s creating dialogue, that Elsa is this wonderful character that speaks to so many people,” she revealed. “It means the world to us that we’re part of these conversations. Where we’re going with it, we have tons of conversations about it, and we’re really conscientious about these things.”
