Idina Menzel: Elsa could date Tinkerbell in Frozen 2
Frozen stars Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell are on-board with a campaign to give Elsa a girlfriend.
A sequel has been widely-rumoured for the 2013 animated hit, with speculation of a love interest for ice queen Elsa.
After a push among fans online, Menzel recently teased her excitement that “the conversation is happening” about including a same-sex romance in the second film.
Speaking to YouTube star Tyler Oakley, Bell and Menzel weighed in again.
Bell said: “Whatever Elsa wants to do is up to her, and it’s up to us to support her.”
Menzel added: “I cannot confirm or deny… if I tell you I would have to kill you!
“I think in Frozen 1 she was young, so she’s still figuring stuff out.”
Asked which Disney character should be Elsa’s girlfriend, she replied: “Tinkerbell!”
She said previously: “I can’t promise anybody that that’s what’s gonna happen.
“But deep down am I really happy that it’s causing people to talk about it and have these kinds of conversations? Yeah I am.”
However, the former Wicked star added she wasn’t sure if the world was quite ready for a lesbian princess.
She said: “We keep making all these strides. We’ve made a lot of strides in the last couple of years, and then all of a sudden the hate and the vitriol within our country is exposed and you’re like, “What happened? We’re in the ancient times again.”
The GiveElsaAGirlfriend campaign is reminiscent of the movement to give Captain America a boyfriend as Marvel fans longed for a more diverse sexuality in their heroes.
