Co-star Kristen Bell loves that Elsa's love life hasn't been a focus and thinks that fact sends a very important message of its own.

It was such a groundbreaking diversion from the usual Disney Princess story that fans find themselves still talking about "Frozen's" Elsa and her love life ... or lack thereof.

Breaking from tradition, "Frozen" wasn't about Elsa's search for a man, nor did she find one in the end to achieve her "happily ever after." Instead, her happy ending came from reconnecting with her kingdom and her sister Anna, voiced by Kristen Bell.

During an appearance on SiriusXM, Idina Menzel, who brought Elsa to life, was asked whether or not her character might find love in the upcoming sequel to the juggernaut animated film, and if that love might be in the arms of a woman. Speculation that Elsa might be gay ran rampant from the moment she didn't fawn over any of the men in the original film.

But according to the actress, Elsa just isn't "focused on romantic love in her life." Hollywood Life reports that Menzel hinted at a continued focus on family and self for her heroine in the sequel.

"She's just always on this search for who she is as a person and her finding this love for herself," she said. "The whole movie, in fact, we concentrate on this unconditional love between sisters and family and that's what we're so proud of; that it's not based on [romance]."

She did tease that fans might see some "undercurrent of something," or that this might be a story explored in future chapters of Elsa's saga, but insisted "she's just really not in that place right now."

Bell joined Menzel for the interview, and agreed with the internet's sentiment that Elsa might be gay after seeing the first film. But she said she came away with an even stronger revelation: "It's none of my business."

While she applauds representation, Bell also sees value in the fact that Elsa's love life is just nobody's business but her own, and it's okay to not think about it or worry about it so long as she isn't. "If she's not there yet, you literally don't need to think about it. It doesn't affect you," Bell insisted.

"The better, broader message is that's not our concern, that Elsa's choice and she'll make it when she's ready," Bell continued.

And if it doesn't happen in this movie, we're pretty sure fans won't mind a "Frozen 3" or 4 or more!

Menzel and Bell are joined by returning and new castmembers including Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, Santino Fontana, Evan Rachel Wood, Sterling K. Brown, Jason Ritter, Jeremy Sisto, Alfred Molina, Martha Plimpton and Alan Tudyk in "Frozen II," storming into theaters on November 22.
