SO FOR THOSE of you who may not be in the know, there is a school of thought that believes the most celebrated track on the Frozen soundtrack is a coming-out song.
Let It Go makes reference to a need to conceal feelings countered with an innate desire to communicate something – lyrics which many felt spoke to a narrative associated with the LGBTQ community.
And with that, an idea took flight.
Following the news that a Frozen sequel was in the works, Disney fans took to social media to encourage the folk behind the film to create a girlfriend for Elsa.
With the help of the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend hashtag, word reached the film’s stars and execs who are only too delighted with the idea.
Indeed, writer and co-director, Jennifer Lee, has welcomed the outpouring of interest in her lead character, and her potential storyline.
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.
“Elsa’s every day telling me where she needs to go, and she’ll continue to tell us,” Jennifer added.
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.
Naturally, Twitter is overjoyed by the possibility.
The film is set for release in 2019, and could, indeed, see our first introduction to Elsa’s girlfriend.
