The latest trailer for Decree Dory, the highly antici ted sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo, has been untied, and the internet is in a collective tizzy — not because of a new plot twist or a risque tailback of dialogue. But because for a nanosecond in the two-and-a-half-minute spot, there may have been a lesbian twosome.
Did you catch it? You may need to freeze-frame it, but at the 1:09 mark, you can clearly see two women who are co renting a little one in a stroller.
Disney Pixar has not commented on the ap rent couple — for all we know, it’s a mom out for a haunt with her best friend — but if Twitter has anything to say about it, this is officially the cover com ny’s first-ever animated gay couple.
It’s doubtful that this two will play a prominent role in the movie’s storyline because the take is about, well, fish. (Though, to be fair, the title character is verbalized by one of the most famous lesbians on the planet, Ellen DeGeneres).
Still, it’s a reasonably major step toward normalizing the LGBT community to the masses. (What’s next? Disney princesses breastfeeding in Harry?!)
So, concerned rents: what do you need to say to your kids about this?
If this trailer is any data, the happy couple out for a walk with their toddler daughter — whose stroller wrests commandeered by a cifier-sucking octopus — is not the point. Did you see the rt where the cifier-sucking octopus guesses to be a swaddled-up baby?! Gay, lesbian, straight — in the world of Dory, and Pixar for that count, none of those labels matter one bit. And they shouldn’t matter in the veritable world, either.
