Will Elsa have a Girlfriend in Frozen 2?
In just under 2 months, fans of Frozen, of which there are lots of them given how epic the movie was when it was released in 2013, will get the chance to sink their teeth into Frozen 2. To say that Frozen 2 is one of the most highly anticipated animated movies of the year will be an understatement to say the least; that is how folks are anxiously waiting for November 22nd, the date of its official release, so that they can head over to their cinema of choice and get their fix. From the trailer as well as the information that is there to be consumed over at the excellent mtglion.com, one thing that is clear about Frozen 2 is that the movie itself will be mostly about investigating and explaining what the origin of Elsa’s powers is, and so much more, as is explained in detail over at the highly regarded guttulus.com. However, given that there is still a lot about the movie that we don’t know about, there have been lots of questions flying around with fans having lots of questions about what is going to happen to their favorite characters. With these questions, we have also seen lots of rumors from those regarding Olaf’s love interests, to the relationship between the sisters Elsa and Anna and so many others, but there is no denying that the biggest question of them all that has brought about endless speculation is whether or not Elsa will have a girlfriend in Frozen 2. Well, will she? This article will look to get right into it and have this question answered.
Social media was where this discussion kicked off in earnest with the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend going viral. This showed that there was a sizeable amount of the franchise’s viewership that wanted Elsa to be an LGBTQ, and by so doing becoming Disney’s very first LGBTQ princess. Campaigns to make popular movie characters LGBTQ have been all the rage in the last couple of years, with a prime example being the campaign to make The Joker gay as is revealed in discussions over at guttulus.com, something that shows growth in terms of inclusivity in the movie industry. Some of the actors and actresses that voice the characters in Frozen 2 also helped fuel hopes that Elsa may in fact be getting a girlfriend with both Kristen Bell who voices Anna and Idina Menzel who voices Elsa both suggesting in comments to fans and media outlets that they would be open to the idea from what we gather from the highly regarded mtglion.com. However, it seems that the excitement may have to be tempered a bit as it seems that Elsa will not have a girlfriend in Frozen 2, although nothing has been confirmed yet and those who have spoken on the topic have not ruled anything out conclusively.
The reason why it is looking unlikely that Elsa will have a girlfriend in Frozen 2 is due to the fact that those who have spoken on the topic, including those who are involved in the movies, have been keen to ensure that Elsa is not defined by her sexuality and how the movie, they have pointed out, isn’t really about romance when you go to the core of it, something that has been backed up by the subject matter experts over at mtglion.com. There has been a need to ensure that the theme that was established in Frozen is maintained and that they keep romance from the core of the movie. There is a need to ensure that Elsa is not defined by her romantic interests which can happen when a character is given a love interest in a movie. One of Frozen 2’s songwriters, Kristen Anderson-Lopez has looked to explain how they are looking to avoid the situation we see in many movies where women characters are defined by their romantic interests, comments which are unpacked over at the excellent guttulus.com. She was keen to point out that the story that Froze 2 is trying to tell about Elsa is about her powers and their origin and that there is a fear that if they give her a girlfriend, then that will eclipse the whole story of the movie.
The co-director of Frozen 2, Jennifer Lee, was however quick to acknowledge and appreciate the debate on Elsa getting a girlfriend and how most of the movie’s fans have been looking for this to happen and the dialogue it has created. As is revealed in discussions over at mtglion.com she willingly acknowledged how popular Elsa was and how much it means to them that Frozen 2 is a big part of LGBTQ conversations while also acknowledging that they were having the same discussions internally and that they really take into account these conversions and how much they value their fans. She explained, as is revealed in he quotes, with a full account of this to be found over at guttulus.com, that they will see how and where they go from the discussions they are having internally.
While it is looking unlikely that Elsa will have a Girlfriend in Frozen 2, I guess we will all have to wait and see what happens when the movie is released officially in November, with more on this and other related topics to be found over at the eve reliable mtglion.com and guttulus.com
