Idina Menzel, the voice behind Disney character Queen Elsa, has finally given her opinion about the call for the possible adoption of a lesbian “Frozen 2” plot.
In an interview with ET Canada during the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, the 44-year-old singer and actress admitted that she liked the idea of introducing a controversial plot for the sequel of the 3D computer-animated musical fantasy comedy film by Disney.
“I think it’s great,” she said about the campaign on Twitter. “Disney’s just gotta contend with that.”
She even continued by saying, “I’ll let them figure that out.”
Amid the call for “Frozen 2” plot to carry the LGBT theme, Idina Menzel pointed out that “No matter what,” having given the opportunity to voice for Elsa has changed her life.
At the start of May, 17-year-old girl Alexis Isabel Moncada started the online campaign through Twitter via the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.
“I hope Disney makes Elsa a lesbian princess imagine how iconic that would be,” her first tweet read, which was then followed by, “Dear @Disney, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.”
In a post on MTV Founders blog, Moncada explained why she came up with such an idea for “Frozen 2” plot.
“Growing up, I never saw a princess fall in love with another princess — and neither have girls growing up right now,” she opened her lengthy post. “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.”
While many may have considered the 2013 film as an expression of real love that is capable of winning over any trails, she claimed that the LGBT community sees it as a “metaphor for the experience of coming out and accepting who you are.”
Whether Disney will adopt or not the LGBT theme for the “Frozen 2” plot, that is yet to be known.
