Idina Menzel Speaks On The #GiveElsaAGirlfriend Campaign

Will the next Disney princess be gay? 

Idina Menzel melted everyone's hearts with her beautiful portrayal as Elsa in Frozen, and she did it all over again in a recent interview.

ET asked the singing actress from Broadway about the 'GiveElsaAGirlfriend' hashtag petition that went viral earlier this month. 

"I think it's great," she said on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet Sunday night. "Disney's just gotta contend with that. I'll let them figure that out."

The idea came about when Twitter user Alexis Isabel Moncada randomly tweeted how progressive it would be if Disney made a lesbian princess. Her following tweet, however, is the one that really grabbed everyone's attention. "Dear @Disney, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend," she tweeted, which has since been retweeted over 2,200 times.

And it looks like the petition is still going strong, with hundreds still clinging to a hope. Although Disney has yet to comment, there has been some backlash, with a counter-petition underway. 

It definitely would be an iconic move for its slated 2018 follow-up, Frozen 2.
