Whether you think Frozen was the best Disney movie that the studio ever put out or you feel that the film had a lot of hype behind it, you can’t deny how successful the 2013 movie was. Chances are, ‘Let It Go’ has been stuck in your head a few times and you’ve probably saved plenty of memes to your Pinterest account. Part of Frozen’s success wasn’t just its music, but the storyline between the two sisters, and the main character Elsa. Parents of young girls everywhere have bought Halloween costumes of Elsa for their daughters and believe me, I’ve seen plenty of cosplays at Comic Cons.
Another way that Frozen could break the glass ceiling, is by making Elsa Disney’s first gay princess. Yes, you heard that right. Let’s give those who would oppose this sometime to process. Done? Okay. Disney is a family studio and the LGBT is full of family. So, having such a popular character like Elsa established as a lesbian would be huge! They could do this in a sequel to Frozen, which has brought in Allison Schroeder as a writer and bisexual icon Evan Rachel Wood. Best known as Dolores on Westworld, she’s been brought in for an undisclosed role and there’s speculation that a love interest for Elsa could be introduced. Coincidence?
As far as what writer and co-director Jennifer Lee had to say about the speculations, Lee seems in support of it:
“I love everything people are saying [and] people are 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.”
If Disney were to actually pull the trigger and even hint at Elsa’s sexuality, it would be huge for representation. For those who watch the movie to see themselves in a Disney princess. Frozen already did well with not focusing on needing a man to be rescued, it could take a step further and show that actual representation for the LGBT.
