Fact Check:

Some messages spread wide on social media platforms claim Disney has announced Elsa will be a Lesbian in Frozen 2 movie. They mention Disney will feature the protagonist character as an open lesbian. Despite the popularity, the claims are not true and explained here.

Is Elsa a Lesbian in Frozen 2 Movie?

In 2016, there was a campaign on Twitter #GetElsaAGirlfriend for the sequel to the 2013 hit movie of Disney, Frozen. Since then, there’s speculation over Elsa’s sexuality in anticipation of its sequel “Frozen II.” The speculations became more after the first Teaser Trailer for “Frozen II” came out in February 2019. Some thought the character of Iduna, voiced by Evan Rachel Wood, was the new love interest of Elsa, the ice queen.

Satire

In between speculations mentioned above, NPC Daily website npcdaily.com published an article on 21st March 2019 saying Disney announces Elsa will be a lesbian in Frozen 2. The article carried an image of the alleged Tweet put out by Disney. Further, the article said – Disney takes another wild stride in the right direction for equality in the LGBTQ community! They also mentioned it as a great news for the community!

As a matter of fact, NPC Daily is a satirical website publishing fictional, sarcastic content. The About information of the website clearly mentions – NPC Daily is a satire site, providing political and cultural commentary with wanton sarcasm. The website published similar stories on gender like “Simba will be gay in Disney’s live action remake of Lion King” and “Woody will be ‘openly bisexual’ in Toy Story 4“. On the other hand, the image of the alleged official tweet of Disney is not real – the official handle of Disney is @Disney, not @Disnep like shown in the image.

On record, Disney has never addressed Elsa’s or any of the other character’s sexuality in the movie. The premise of the sequel story of Frozen movie is three years after the events of the first film. Elsa begins to hear strange sound from the North calling her. Together with her sister Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, they embark on a new journey to discover the origin of Elsa’s magical powers and save their kingdom. Frozen II hits theaters on 22nd November 2019.
