Dear Disney, you up for it? 'Cause we are!

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that Frozen 2, the sequel to - lol, you guessed it - Frozen was announced sometime last year and fans have recently been campaigning for Disney to include a pretty huge LGBT storyline. 


Twitter user Alexis Isabel created the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend at the beginning of May. After a few days, the conversation had been blown wide open, with supporters from all over the world piling even more pressure on Disney to deliver the goods.

Alexis wrote a really great essay for MTV about why she started the hashtag, where she explains that "many in the LGBT community view this movie as a metaphor for the experience of coming out and accepting who you are." The thought of having strong and independent Elsa ultimately ending up in a classic Disney boy-girl love story didn't sit well with her or her followers.

And when it went viral, Twitter was soooo down for it. 

Frozen director Chris Buck already dropped a few hints on what might happen in Frozen 2. “We will tackle other issues that, I think, are out there today that boys and girls, men and women, are dealing with. I think we’re very aware of what is happening in society.” he told MTV News.


So... should Disney #GiveElsaAGirlfriend? Whaddya think?
