'Frozen' Director Open to Elsa Having a Girlfriend: 'We Have Tons of Conversations'

The #GiveElsaAGirlfriend campaign just got a boost of hope.

"Frozen 2" is showing up in theaters in 2019, and many fans still hope the movie gives Queen Elsa a girlfriend. Of course, not all fans want that for her, and some don't want to see her paired up with anyone. But "Frozen" inspired a lot of people to see her "Let It Go" lyrics as a coming out anthem, and it sparked a conversation in the Disney fandom.

Idina Menzel voices Elsa, and she has already said she thinks "it's a wonderful idea" and "a wonderful conversation that we should all have about whether a Disney princess or queen could be gay."

Jennifer Lee is the co-director and writer of the "Frozen" films, and she recently talked to HuffPost about the fan campaign to give Elsa a girlfriend. Here's what she said:

"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," Lee said. "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."

So she's open to the idea, but no promises that fans will see anything like that in "Frozen 2" or anywhere else.

Disney just had their first openly gay character in "Beauty and the Beast," and even though that one LeFou scene barely counted it still launched a heated debate.

"Frozen 2" is currently scheduled for release in theaters on November 27th, 2019.
