Frozen 2 may welcome new members in its cast as Idina Menzel will reportedly have her exit to be replaced by the pop sensation, Taylor Swift.

New rumors surfaced recently that Frozen fans may not be hearing Menzel's voice anymore in Elsa's character. What could have caused this change? Was she evicted or did she simply decide to quit from the movie franchise?

There have been lots of theories explaining why the 45-year old singer-actress may leave the cast. Menzel was "axed from the sequel" and the management has already been considering possible people including Taylor Swift or Rihanna to replace her in Frozen 2.

This has been backed up by another rumor which also talked about Menzel's exit. However, the source suggested that her exit may be due to her busy schedule in preparations for her wedding.

The source also dropped another name. This time, it is Demi Lovato, who has the same voice range with Idina. Lovato's previous experience working with Disney and her rendition of Let It Go may influence the company to choose her from other candidates like Arianna Grande, Taylor and Rihanna.

As of writing, Idina and Disney have not released official statements yet regarding the issue. Menzel's clueless answers in an interview, however, grabbed sources' attention that, indeed, she is leaving the Disney franchise.

As mentioned by Inquisitr, during that interview, Menzel simply says that she does not know of any developments for the next installment saying she is only "a servant of Disney."

Previously, it was rumored that the plot for Frozen 2 may revolve on Elsa's success in finding the kiss of love. This development was marred by Twitter debates saying that the iconic queen should take a lesbian lover.

Disney has not officially released yet as to whether Elsa will be a lesbian queen in the sequel. Chris Buck, however, wants to keep Disney's tradition of sending a 'decent message' to its younger audience.

There have been rumors that the adorable Olaf may also have a lover in the sequel.

Frozen 2 is expected to hit theaters in 2018.
