While Elsas sexuality is unaddressed in Frozen 2 one theory suggests that Honeymaren is Elsa’ love interest in the unconfirmed sequel Frozen 3.Elsas sexuality has not been determined yet within the Frozen franchise but one theory suggests that Elsas love interest may have already been introduced within Frozen 2 confirming the long-held hypothesis that Elsa Idina Menzel is gay. Honeymaren Rachel Matthews a member of the Northuldra tribe who was trapped in the Enchanted Forest by the curse could possibly return within the unconfirmed sequel Frozen 3 as Elsas girlfriend based on the two characters shared chemistry in Frozen 2.
Ever since Frozen debuted in 2013 the LGBTQIA+ community has identified with Elsa’s story arc since her character has personal goals as a Disney princess that extend beyond finding a prince does not conform to societal norms and goes on a journey of self acceptance. While fans have been advocating for Disney to disclose Elsas sexuality since 2016 when the hashtag Give Elsa A Girlfriend began trending the studio had not yet confirmed or denied that Elsa is gay and in fact still has not.At the end of Frozen 2 Elsa learns that she has the reincarnation of the fifth spirit the mediator between the natural world and civilization and decides to pass her role as Queen of Arendelle over to her sister Anna Kristen Bell. If Frozen 3 explores her new role as the fifth spirit, it could then naturally introduce Honeymaren as Elsa’s love interest since the two characters have a similar connection to nature. If Disney were to go this route it could also be a small step in the right direction for the studio’s LGBTQIA+ representation.
Unlike any other minor character in the Frozen franchise Honeymaren is the first who appears to have an instant and natural connection with Elsa.

Pointing out that the four separate crystal branches on the snowflake represent the four elements of Air Water Earth and Fire Honeymaren tells Elsa the legends of a fifth elemental spirit which is represented by the crystal at the center of the snowflake. Since Honeymaren references Ahtohallan and sings lullaby All Is Found its clear during the brief encounter that the two characters bond over their shared Northuldra heritage and love of nature. Since Elsa has always had trouble letting other people into her life due to her fear of hurting someone with her elemental magic her instant connection with Honeymaren could the beginnings of a future romantic relationship.
