The voice behind Elsa in "Frozen" has weighed in on a recent social media campaign that seeks a girlfriend for the ice princess' second movie installment.
“I think it’s great,” Broadway actress Idina Menzel told Entertainment Tonight from the 2016 Billboard Music Awards red carpet. “Disney’s just gotta contend with that. I’ll let them figure that out.”
Alexis Isabel Moncada, 17, created #GiveElsaAGirlfriend to send a strong message. The Floridian used Twitter to encourage Disney to give Elsa a same-sex partner in the forthcoming 'Frozen' sequel.

"We see princes and princesses, beasts and women, women and frogs ... yet no women who love other women? If we're going to displace a group of people because it's inappropriate — then so is seeing every other relationship," Moncada told NBC News.
The debate is on whether Elsa should have a girlfriend or a boyfriend.
In response to the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend campaign, a Citizen Go petition, #CharmingPrinceForElsa, was started to promote a perfect man for Elsa. The charming prince campaign has garnered 206,000 electronic signatures in just over a week.
Menzel says playing the character was life changing and that she supports whatever Disney decides, according to ET.
"Frozen" is the highest-grossing animated movie of all time. A release date has not been set for its sequel.
