Earlier this month, fans of Frozen launched a twitter campaign using the hashtag “#GiveElsaAGirlfriend”, urging Disney bosses to give the film’s snow queen a female love interest.
The campaign has now received the endorsement from Elsa herself, as Idina Menzel told Entertainment Tonight at the Billboard Music Awards that she would be open to her animated alter ego finding love with a woman onscreen.
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.”
The actress helped Frozen win one of two Academy Awards in 2014, when her hit track Let It Go won the Best Original Song trophy.
The movie also won for Best Animated Feature.
Idina will be back to voice Queen Elsa in Frozen 2, which will also feature the return of Kristen Bell as Princess Anna, and Josh Gad as snowman Olaf.
Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, who penned the script for the 2013 hit, are also back on board to helm the follow-up.
