‘Frozen 2’: Does Elsa Fall in Love with a Female Character?
It’s almost time for Frozen 2! All of our favorite characters who stole our hearts in the original 2013 film are back.
The first Frozen broke a few Disney tropes that had been around since the very beginning of the production company. Rarely do we ever see a film where the female main character doesn’t need to be rescued by a man or fall in love with said man. But in Frozen, Elsa never fell in love. In fact, she didn’t seem the slightest bit interested in it. And there was no man who came to her rescue. Instead, it was her little sister, Anna, who saved the day.
With the wild success of the first movie, is Disney planning on breaking more barriers with the second?
Rumors that Elsa is gay
Because Elsa never fell in love or seemed attracted to any of the guys in the film, fans started to wonder if the character might be gay. MTV contributor Alexis Isabel Moncada wrote an open letter in the hopes that Elsa would come out in the second movie.
“I want young girls to understand that a princess can love another princess,” Moncada wrote. “The entertainment industry has given us girls who have fallen in love with beasts, ogres who fall for humans, and even grown women who love bees. But we’ve never been able to see the purity in a queer relationship.”
