Frozen Elsa

Disney’s heavy-hitting franchises are slowly getting more diverse. The Force Awakens has more female and non-white characters in speaking roles than the first three Star Wars movies combined. Captain America: Civil War introduces a new black superhero this weekend (and he’s getting his own movie in 2018). This fall’s Moana introduces Disney’s first Polynesian princess. And so on. But even as these universes gradually open up to women and people of color, they’ve continued to leave LGBT people out in the cold. And fans and filmmakers alike would like to see that change.

Recently, GLAAD called upon the studio to include LGBT characters in the Star Wars universe. Now the Frozen faithful are campaigning on social media to “#GiveElsaAGirlfriend” in the sequel, while Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo field questions about when the Marvel Cinematic Universe will get its first major gay character.  Read More »

Frozen 2

The animated musical Frozen was a massive runaway hit for Walt Disney Animation back in 2013, making a sequel to the movie a forgone conclusion. However, Disney dragged their feet a bit when it came to confirming plans for Frozen 2, and it wasn’t until just over a year ago that the project was officially announced. We still don’t have a release date for Frozen 2, but the good news is star Kristen Bell has revealed that production is slated to begin next month. Read More »


Pretty much the moment Frozen opened in 2013, fans began wondering about a sequel. And earlier this year, Disney finally announced development on Frozen 2. Now the question is what we’ll see in the follow-up, and while it’ll be some time before we get all the answers, directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee have started dropping a few hints.

Among other things, they suggest we’ll see a different side of Elsa, who underwent quite an intense emotional arc in the first Frozen. Get the Frozen 2 details after the jump.  Read More »
