A Frozen sequel is in the works.

This much we know for certain.

But while few details have been revealed regarding the follow-up to Disney's smash hit blockbuster, a movement has gathered on Twitter to center Frozen 2 on at least one storyline:

Elsa's sexuality.

Simply put, many folks out there want Disney to #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.

Love is an open door, right?

This viral trend began with a teenage girl named Alexis Isabel Moncada.

She tweeted the following April 30... and then it simply caught on:

"I hope Disney makes Elsa a lesbian princess imagine how iconic that would be. Dear @Disney, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend."

After sparking the Internet movement, Moncada spoke to on Tuesday, May 3, via a piece titled "Why I Created the Trending #GiveElsaAGirlfriend Hashtag."

The founder of website Feminist Culture, she explained her reasoning thusly:

"Growing up, I never saw a princess fall in love with another princess - and neither have girls growing up right now.

"The entertainment industry has given us girls who have fallen in love with beasts, ogres who fall for humans, and even grown women who love bees.

"But we’ve never been able to see the purity in a queer relationship."

Moncada says the support she has received online has been "surreal."

Disney announced in March 2015 that it was developing the sequel after Frozen destroyed box office records in 2013.

The animated adventure has grossed over a billion dollars across the globe, making it the most profitable cartoon of all-time.

Here's a look at some of the Tweets that also would like Disney to #GiveElsaAGirlfriend:
