Get ready to head back to Arendelle, Disney fans. The brand new first look trailer for Frozen 2 has finally been released.And with that trailer comes a new slew of questions about the sequel…
Does Elsa have a girlfriend in Frozen 2?
Though nothing has been confirmed, here’s hoping.
Support for Elsa being the first out Disney princess comes from none other than Idina Menzel herself.
Menzel, who voices the character, has joined a chorus of voices hoping that Disney will take the brave step of making Elsa a lesbian.
Back in 2016, the Broadway star was asked her opinion on a potential lesbian love interest.
She said: “I think it’s great. Disney’s just gotta contend with that. I’ll let them figure that out.”
Frozen’s own co-director Jennifer Lee said: “I love everything people are saying and thinking about with our film―that it’s creating dialogue, that Elsa is this wonderful character that speaks to so many people.”
“It means the world to us that we’re part of these conversations.
“Where we’re going with it, we have tons of conversations about it, and we’re really conscientious about these things.
“For me … Elsa’s every day telling me where she needs to go, and she’ll continue to tell us.
“I always write from character-out, and where Elsa is and what Elsa’s doing in her life, she’s telling me every day. We’ll see where we go.”
While this is not an out-and-out confirmation of Elsa’s own coming out, it is a nod in the right direction.
Let It Go, the theme song from the first Frozen movie, has become a powerful LGBTQ anthem.
This, along with the distinct lack of a male love interest for Elsa, led to theorising over Elsa’s sexuality.
Making her a lesbian would be a huge step in the right direction for Disney, whose films are already littered with socially-conservative tropes.
The trailer has reignited the conversation surrounding Elsa’s future.
Back in July, The Wrap revealed that Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K Brown were to play two new characters – perhaps they were the ones shown?
Though not explicitly shown, the trailer does show a glimpse of a new character.
She is a girl with long brown hair who watches as a blonde man is suddenly flung up from a pile of autumn leaves.
The final moment shows the five main characters overlooking what appears to be a new land.
Frozen 2 will be released in UK cinemas on November 22, 2019.
