Frozen 3 will reportedly introduce a girlfriend for Elsa
While it was already confirmed that Frozen 2 will not give Queen Elsa a love interest, rumours suggest that the LGBT+ icon may finally get a girlfriend in the third instalment of the franchise.
Elsa’s LGBT+ fanbase were disappointed when rumours of the ice queen having a girlfriend in Frozen 2 were quashed by a Disney songwriter last month.
Kristen Anderson-Lopez told IGN: “Like the first movie, Elsa is not just defined by a romantic interest.
“There’s so many movies that define a woman by her romantic interest. That’s not a story that we wanted to tell at this point in time.”
But now, entertainment site We Got This Covered has reported that according to mystery sources: “The intention is for Elsa to have a girlfriend in the threequel, confirming her sexuality in the process.”
The gap between the first and second films was six years long, so fans might have to wait a while for Frozen 3.
According to the source that spoke to We Got This Covered, Disney wanted to introduce a love interest for Elsa in the sequel but were worried that the film would be banned in some countries.
Fans have been campaigning for Disney to give Elsa a girlfriend since the release of Frozen in 2013, and many in the LGBT+ community saw ‘Let It Go’ as a coming out anthem.
I can't believe I ran across an article claiming there'll be a Frozen 3 & Elsa will finally be a lesbian.
I mean, as cool as that *would be* – the 2nd one hasn't even hit theaters yet!
That's not fair!!

While there was a lot of excitement surrounding rumours of a lesbian Elsa in the Frozen 2, fans are not getting their hopes up yet for Frozen 3.

“Really!? I mean, as cool as that *would be* – the 2nd one hasn’t even hit theatres yet!”
The same thing was said for Frozen II and yet….no gay Elsa.
You don’t need to lie to your followers. And Disney hasn’t even begun thinking of a third Frozen film— Movieexpert 19 (@19Movieexpert) September 29, 2019
