'Frozen' Director Says She's Open to a Female Love Interest For Elsa in Sequel

It has been four years since Disney’s Frozen took over the universe, and yet to this day, many fans are still pleading for Disney to add some much-needed LGBTQ representation to their films with Frozen 2.

Speculation has been swirling around the Internet since the film’s initial release that Elsa, the film’s protagonist, is a queer character. This theory left many fans calling for Disney to give Elsa a female love interest in the film’s sequel, which is expected to hit theaters in November 2019. Idina Menzel previously said that she was “excited” by the online discussion, but offered no other details. 

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Jennifer Lee, the film’s co-director and writer, said that she hears the fans and she is actively thinking about the proposition of a queer Elsa. “Where we’re going with it, we have tons of conversations about it, and we’re really conscientious about these things,” she said.

But she added that there is no guarantee that Elsa will get a girlfriend in the next movie. “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,” she said.
