Disney has been known for many things throughout its long existence. its animated masterpieces, its expensive amusement parks, and their princesses.While many of their iconic feminine characters have been the subject to much scrutiny, one princess (or should I say queen) has been praised for her strength and her beliefs: Elsa.
Since her debut in the 2013 megahit Frozen, Elsa’s fanbase has only grown larger. And parents and everyone else with ears be warned, Elsa and all her friends will be returning to the silver screen soon enough. Get ready for the renditions of whatever hit song comes out of this coming sequel.
But on to some less worrying news (depending on what your worldview is), a very interesting fan campaignnis rising in popularity. The #GiveElsaAGirlfriend campaign is rooting for our favorite ice queen to comes out of the closet in Frozen 2 and find a GF, and it sees to be picking up steam. The voice of Elsa, Idina Menzel is in fact in support of this idea and is open to seeing Elsa go in this direction.
Menzel stated “I think it’s great. Disney’s just gotta contend with that. I’ll let them figure that out. No matter what, [Elsa] changed my life.” So in reality this is a pretty standard statement. Just expansive enough to sound like agreement but still very reserved. Not to say that she isn’t actually into this idea, but we should just make that assumption.
But this’d probably be a good move for Disney. The Lgbt community has been on their back for a bit mow about their lack of lgbt characters in their movies. This would also take a character who is already extremely popular and make her an lgbt symbol in children’s media. So who knows? Maybe Disney just might go for it.
But what do you think? Should Elsa have a GF? Should she have fire powers? Do you think Disney should just leave sexuality out of kids movies? Talk about it in the comments and don’t forget to like, share, and follow Sprom for more news of on Frozen 2 and other things in the world of movie news.
Frozen 2 doesn’t have a release date just yet, but I’ll make sure to tell you when it finally gets one.
