The actress and singer, who turned 45-years-old yesterday, May 30, wants Elsa to have a female love interest in the upcoming film Frozen 2. Idina Menzel was the voice behind Elsa, and it appears that she wouldn’t mind her character having a girlfriend in the upcoming installment of Frozen.
Idina Menzel shared her opinion about the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend social media campaign, which has picked up heat recently, saying that it would be “great” to give Elsa a same-sex partner in Frozen 2, the release date of which hasn’t been announced yet.

Speaking to ET at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Idina Menzel said she would fully support such a decision, but it was up to Disney to decide it. She added that, no matter what the decision will be, Elsa has already changed her life.
Idina Menzel is not the only Frozen star who has talked about the upcoming Disney sequel recently. Kristen Bell, who is the voice of Princess Anna, said in her March interview with Collider that the team of writers was still working on the script and doing tweaks. But Bell added that they would start recording in March.
“The story is great, and they exude quality. What I know about that whole team is that they wouldn’t just put something out to put it out.”
Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth recently reunited to sing a hit ballad from Wicked – “For Good” – according to E! Online. The Wicked co-stars haven’t appeared anywhere together in over 12 years.
And over two weeks after Idina Menzel shared a video of the two performing the “For Good” ballad from the Broadway musical, it’s been viewed over 11 million times. In fact, Chenoweth even hinted that the two could be planning to do more ballads together.
Speaking E! Online‘s Marc Malkin at the Rebels With a Cause cancer research benefit, Chenoweth admitted she was very proud to finally reunite with her Wicked co-star Idina Menzel. In fact, when asked by Malkin if the two were planning to do more ballads, Chenoweth said it was a secret.
Idina Menzel and Chenoweth’s reunion performance first publicly appeared at the Second Stage Theatre honoring Wicked producer David Stone in New York City in May. And then Menzel took it upon herself to share the video with her Facebook followers.
The video of Idina Menzel and Chenoweth’s reunion performance is now featured on Wicked‘s “Out of Oz: Wicked Studio Sessions” YouTube series. Menzel played Elphaba in 2003’s Wicked, while Chenoweth played the role of Galinda. Menzel even won one Tony Award for her performance.
In other news, Idina Menzel has a thing or two to brag when talking about her non-profit campaign, called A BroaderWay, which provides means and finances for girls from urban areas to be sent to a summer camp in the Berkshires, according to Forward.
During a Q&A session with film producer Marc Platt at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, Idina Menzel admitted that there were times when she felt insecure and timid during her school years. But it was camp that made her feel like a leader.
So that’s why Idina Menzel established A BroaderWay – to empower girls and let them become leaders. The camping experience also includes rock-climbing and swimming lessons, as well as various workshops, including a theatrical one.
“There’s a production at the end of each session, and the girls have a lot of ownership and pride in that.”
