Disney fans typically love how independent the Disney princess Elsa is in the Frozen movies — particularly since, in the first movie from 2013, it was sisterly love that broke a spell rather than romantic love. However, it seems like that independence might be coming into question with Frozen 3!
We already knew that newly-inaugurated Disney Legend Idina Menzel (the Broadway star and renowned singer who voices Elsa and sings “Let It Go”) and fresh Disney Legend Kristen Bell (the comedic and dramatic actress who plays Anna) were on board to return in their roles for a third movie tentatively called Frozen 3. Just take a look at the video below (featuring Kristen Bell with Jimmy Fallon) and this article if you don’t believe us!
Now, it sounds like Idina Menzel has some interesting ideas about where Elsa’s plot points could go in the third movie, especially since she now lives in Northoldra and Anna has become the Queen of Arendelle — but this new plot could derail the old focus that made Frozen movies so popular!
Idina Menzel recently told People that she thinks there might be a place for a romance in Elsa’s story during Frozen 3, and seemed to have mixed feelings on the subject.
“I love that she was unconventional in that she didn’t need a prince to save the day and that it was a story about sisters,” the actress and singer explained. “But I would love her now — finally — in Frozen 3, to have a partner in life.”
However, the singer and Disney+ documentary star also admitted that she feels “confused” about the idea. “It’s hard for me to say,” she admitted. “Because then I do love the fact that she’s just powerful on her own…I’m on the fence.”
Elsa the ice princess certainly does typically have a “lone wolf” style — in fact, she specifically leaves behind her family and friends for a solo question to Ahtahollan in Frozen 2, which came out in theaters in 2019 — and the Northoldra heroine also focuses on power ballads that involve independence more than the songs about romance, home, and camaraderie that her sister Queen Anna or the snowman Olaf uses.
