Idina Menzel, acclaimed Broadway star (Wicked, Rent) and the voice of Frozen's Elsa, is open to Disney giving Elsa a girlfriend in the sequel. The fan-made petition #GiveElsaAGirlfriend started a month ago. 

Menzel told ET at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night: 

“I think it’s great," in response to the campaign. “Disney’s just gotta contend with that. I’ll let them figure that out.” When asked if she’d support the decision if it were to happen, Menzel responded: “No matter what,” as the character “changed my life.” 

Should Disney give Elsa a girlfriend in Frozen 2?

Twitter user Alexis Isabel Moncada started the campaign on Twitter — stating that a lesbian romance would be iconic and progressive step in the right direction for Disney. The campaign took off with many fans in support of a female love interest for Elsa. Now with Menzel's support, there's no plans to let it go.

Conservatives and critics, of course, don't agree — creating the counter hashtag and Act Right petition #DontGiveElsaAGirlfriend. However, part of the larger counter-argument include fans who are against giving Elsa a girlfriend OR a boyfriend – claiming Frozen is about sisterhood rather than princesses having romances and falling in love. They would prefer for Elsa to remain single and empowered.

Since Menzel announced she's pro-Elsa girlfriend, fans are happy. They are also still petitioning for Disney to make history and give Elsa a girlfriend.
The initial Twitter campaign started a month ago.
Moncada, the campaign's founder, thinks a lesbian romance would be iconic.
Moncada wrote on MTV.com that, "Growing up, I never saw a princess fall in love with another princess — and neither have girls growing up right now. 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. I recently thought about this in relation to Disney’s Frozen, a movie I have seen multiple times (I own practically all of the Olaf merch available). Many in the LGBT community view this movie as a metaphor for the experience of coming out and accepting who you are. Yet Elsa, the film’s protagonist, will probably end up with a male prince or king in the upcoming Frozen sequel."
Some 'Frozen' fans are arguing that Elsa doesn't NEED a boyfriend or girlfriend. That's the purpose of the movie series and the female characters. It's about the bond of sisterhood--not romance!
Others think Disney should stay away from pissing off parents!
And of course, conservatives would agree with NOT giving Elsa a girlfriend. In response to the original petition, a counter petition was released. It has more than 3,200 signatures.
