Ellen DeGeneres: Finding Dory will feature Disney’s first trans character

The trailer for Finding Dory is here

Finding Dory will feature Disney’s first transgender character, Ellen DeGeneres has confirmed.

The movie will include a stingray that’s ‘becoming sting-Rhonda’, the lesbian star said.

DeGeneres was asked in an interview with USA Today about whether there was a lesbian couple in the film.

The trailer’s fleeting depiction of two women sparked reports the movie would feature Disney/Pixar’s first LGBTI couple.

Will Finding Dory be Disney's first representation of a same-sex couple?

She replied: ‘I don’t mind the question and I don’t know if it’s true or not, or if she has a bad short haircut. Who knows if she is a lesbian?

‘But actually I’ll tell you a little secret. There’s a stingray that’s becoming sting-Rhonda, so there’s a trans sting in the movie.’

Finding Dory, which sees DeGeneres reprising her much-loved role as Dory from the Finding Nemo movie, opens in cinemas in the US this Friday (17 June) and in the UK on 26 July.
