In Frozen 2, Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Olaf (Josh Gad) will seek out answers to their past. When the film drops November 22n, there will be magic, new characters and mystery … but what about love?
Speculation about the choices Disney will make about Elsa's love life has reached a feverish pitch, especially after the first Frozen was seen as throwing off many of the tired Disney "Princess" tropes that always saw a damsel being rescued by a handsome prince. It seems the filmmakers are trying to live up the the high standards they set the first time around.
Filmmaker Jennifer Lee told ET point blank: "Elsa's not going to have a romantic relationship in this."
Lee added that the sequel will delve into each character's backstory, and not their romantic status: "For this film, we spent a lot of time journaling and we said we took these pretty intense personality tests for each character. We found this is a woman who wasn't ready for a relationship at all. She's carrying a lot of pressure and the weight of her kingdom on her shoulders and struggling with this call for her powers. That's where she was, so for us, it really hadn't come up in terms of what fit with where the story was growing. And we knew the end we wanted for her. So it just didn't fit with where she was in her life. I don't know if it'll fit in the future. We haven't asked that question, and I'm not stretching past Frozen 2 about what happens to these characters in their lives! Laughs But it's just not where she was now."
Many in the LGBTQ community saw Elsa's megahit, "Let it Go" as her coming out story.
And sources tell We Got This Covered that the big reveal will happen in the threequel. "The intention is for Elsa to have a girlfriend in the threequel, confirming her sexuality in the process."
