It has been rumored for some time now that "Frozen 2" could show that title heroine Elsa is a lesbian. If that really is the case, it is not shown in the form of a relationship.
In "The Frozen" it was only Anna (voice in the original: Kristen Bell), who has a love story (or actually even two) missed, while her sister Elsa (Idina Menzel) flees into exile because of their difficulty to control forces. For the upcoming sequel "Frozen 2" so many fans have now also wished a love interest for the Frozen herself. For many, this was not necessarily about incorporating a romance for its own sake, but rather about showing that Elsa is a lesbian in this way, to send a message.
After the hit song "Let It Go" was interpreted along with its appeal to the acceptance of one's own identity and feelings, sometimes as a metaphor for a coming out and has become a hymn of the LGBTQ community, has a hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend accompanied Petition received much encouragement and the creators of Disney allegedly also brought to think about this possibility. In the end, however, they have decided to continue to give Elsa no love relationship - neither with a woman nor with a man. That's what the two songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez revealed to their colleagues at IGN as part of the D23 Disney fair.
NOT DEFINED BY A ROMANCE
It was not consciously behind the scenes against a lesbian love, but simply generally against a romance decided - for the simple reason that Elsa as a strong figure as in the first part works independently and should not be determined solely by a love interest: "There are so many films that define a woman about her romantic interest," says Kristen Anderson-Lopez about IGN. "This is not the story we want to tell at the moment. We want to tell how someone who has such powers grows, changes, finds his place in the world and gets answers that were previously hidden. "
In this way, in "Frozen 2", in a certain way, one also remains true to the approach of the first part of breaking up typical Disney love clichés a bit. So Elsa's sister Anna - like many Disney princesses - had fallen in love with Prince Hans (Santino Fontana) at first glance, without really knowing him, but later she and her kingdom fell on their feet.
ELSA ROMANCE IN "Frozen 3"?
Anderson-Lopez's restriction that they want to give Elsa "for the time being" no relationship, but also leaves open the possibility that one day - for example, with a potential "Frozen 3" - could change. Besides, the sexual orientation of Frozen 2 could indeed be hinted at without relationship in her new screen adventure.
Whether this is the case, we will hear no later than November 21, 2019, when "Frozen 2" starts in the cinemas and Elsa and Anna together with Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) and Reindeer Sven in a distant enchanted Traveling to save their kingdom of Arendelle and, if possible, to unravel the mystery of their lost parents.
