'Frozen 2' release date, rumors: Elsa and Rapunzel are sisters?


With “Frozen” being such a huge box office success and global phenomenon, it’s no wonder that Disney fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the film’s sequel.

Nearly three years since “Frozen” first hit theaters, anticipation for “Frozen 2” is reaching a fever pitch, with numerous theories about the sequel’s plot and rumors about the production’s progress regularly making the rounds on the Internet. Though Disney has officially confirmed the sequel for the animated blockbuster hit, the studio has yet to deny or confirm any of the reports that have sprung up about “Frozen 2.”

One of the latest of these reports is the plausible but highly unlikely twist regarding Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa’s (Idina Menzel)’s true relationship and the revelation that another famous Disney character is related to Elsa.

According to a report from Radio Times, Disney princess Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) of the 2010 animated feature “Tangled” could make an appearance in “Frozen 2” as Elsa’s real biological sibling. As the website and various other media outlets have reported, Elsa is supposedly not Anna’s biological sister, having been allegedly adopted by Anna’s parents, the late King Agnarr and Queen Iduna. As rumors have it, Rapunzel is the ice queen’s true sister.

As avid Disney fans know, Rapunzel made a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in “Frozen.” Rapunzel and her husband Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi) appear in the film as Elsa and Anna are singing “For The First Time In Forever” and the gates to the castle are thrown open, allowing the public inside for the first time in many years.

According to theorists, Rapunzel’s brief appearance isn’t a mere Easter egg, but a major hint about what’s to come.

YouTube channel The Film Theorists holds that several critical clues prove that Elsa and Anna are not biologically related. One is that Elsa does not look anything like the rest of her family but bears a close resemblance to Rapunzel.

Inquisitr also notes that the “Tangled” and “Frozen” timelines substantiate this rumor. Rapunzel is 18 when she marries Flynn. Three years after the wedding, the couple visit Arendelle for Elsa’s coronation. Elsa, who is then 21 and eligible for the crown, would have also been 18 at the time of Rapunzel’s wedding. According to the Elsa-Rapunzel sisterhood theorists, this may mean that Elsa and Rapunzel are twins.

Should this fan theory prove to be true, it will undoubtedly send shockwaves across the “Frozen” fanbase. But until “Frozen 2” comes out, it remains nothing more than a theory and should thus be taken with a grain of salt.

There has been no official announcement regarding the release date of “Frozen 2.”
