Frozen 2 is going to be the sequel to Disney’s animated musical fantasy comedy film Frozen which was released in 2013. Idina Menzel, the voice behind Elsa, the lead character of Frozen recently revealed that the script writing process for the movie has already begun. However, she did not mention as to when the process has kicked off.
Some rumors are doing rounds which suggest that the movie might feature the death of ice queen Elsa. While speaking about the matter Idina joked- “Unless maybe Elsa falls off an ice cliff and she dies in the first five minutes.”
It has been seen in the past that Disney has killed of titular characters in their movies. Fans are speculating whether Frozen 2 is going to join that list. That being said, experts are of the opinion that Disney will not kill of Elsa in Frozen 2.
Another rumor that is currently floating around states that Elsa might be seen having a female as her love interest in the upcoming movie.
Idina seemed quite happy with the idea and stated that she thinks that it will be great for Elsa to have a female love interest. She also added that she will let the filmmakers figure out whether to give Elsa a female love interest or not.
The LGBT has been pleading with Disney to give Elsa a girlfriend in Frozen 2. Numerous fans too have also requested the filmmakers to give a female love interest to Elsa. They have been creating hashtags such as #GiveEslaAGirlfriend and trying to make their collective voice heard.
They are of the opinion that- “Making a kid’s movie with a queer character won’t make your kids gay it will teach them that love comes in many forms.”
Chris Buck, the director of the movie recently stated that Elsa will go through an emotional journey in the upcoming movie. She will once again feel that she too can have fun. He also hinted towards then fact that fans might be seeing a different personality of hers in the movie. This has led fans into assuming that she might be a lesbian in Frozen 2.
However, the possibility of giving Elsa a girlfriend in Frozen 2 seems to be a bleak prospect at the moment because religious activists have created a petition which asks Disney not to make Elsa a lesbian.
The petition asks Disney to give her a boyfriend instead of a girlfriend. It has managed to acquire 65,000 signatures and it is being promoted through the hashtag- #CharmingPrinceForElsa.
Ash Greyson, the founder of Ribbow Media which is a digital marketing company shared his views on the matter. According to him, it will not be a wise decision on Disney’s part to make Elsa lesbian in Frozen 2. He stated that audiences will find it offensive and it will cost Disney at the box office.
It will be interesting to see whether Disney decides to play it safe and go with a boyfriend for Elsa or do they take the daring route and find a nice and beautiful girlfriend for her.
In other news, it was reported that the upcoming movie might reveal if Anna has any superpowers. In the first movie it was seen that Anna was not in possession of any superpowers. That being said, speculations are rife that Anna too has some hidden powers.
If that is indeed that case, it might be revealed in Frozen 2. It was also revealed that the character of Olaf, which is a snowman might also find his love interest in the upcoming movie. The character of Olaf is voiced by Josh Gad.
Frozen became immensely popular after it was released and Disney raked in a considerable amount of revenue not only through tickets sales but also by selling merchandise related to the movie.
