Ever since the Frozen first opened, many have theorized that Elsa (Idina Menzel) is lesbian. And, while not officially established in either the original or the sequel, there is still hope for the future.
Speaking to Buzzfeed's AM to DM, Frozen star Josh Gad -- who voices the lovable snowman Olaf in both films -- weighed in on why Frozen 2 did not address Elsa's sexuality and the possibility of a third movie exploring that part of her identity.
“The directors wanted to tell a story that didn’t necessarily feel like it was about Elsa necessarily searching for or looking for love," he said. "It was more about Elsa embracing Elsa."
Gad explained that the film is more about "self-love" than love with another, but left the door open for future relationships. “It’s not to say that journey can’t still happen in the future.”
That future is looking more and more likely, as Frozen 2 is on track to become Walt Disney Animation's highest-grossing theatrical sequel ever. Producer Peter Del Vecho and writers/directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck stated that Frozen 2 was the end of the story of Arendelle but still left the door open for a third entry.
In theaters now, Disney's Frozen 2 reunites directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck and producer Del Vecho with voice actors Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad. Returning musical talents include Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
