Ellen DeGeneres: Transgender Stingray in Disney’s ‘Finding Dory’

Daniel Nussbaum


Disney/Pixar’s upcoming film Finding Dory features a transgender stingray who transitions to become “Sting-Rhonda,” the film’s star Ellen DeGeneres revealed in an interview.

The sequel to the 2003 smash hit Finding Nemo has already fueled speculation that it will be the first Disney film to feature a lesbian couple, but Degeneres, who voices the titular blue fang fish, told USA Today in an interview that the film will feature a “trans sting.” . . .

Two social media campaigns launched on Twitter last month included a petition to introduce a female love interest for Frozen princess Elsa and a petition to introduce a male love interest for Captain America, with fans using the hashtags #GiveElsaAGirlfriend and #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend, respectively.

There is some recent precedent for gay Disney characters; earlier this year, an episode of ABC’s fairy-tale drama Once Upon a Time featured a lesbian true love’s kiss between Ruby and the Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy.
