AceShowbiz - Ellen DeGeneres teases a possible appearance of Disney's first transgender character in "Finding Dory". According to the comedian, who voices blue tang fish Dory in the movie, there will be a transgender fish.
"There's a stingray that's becoming Sting-Rhonda, so there's a trans-sting in the movie," the host of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" told USA Today. A stingray named Mr. Ray appeared in "Finding Nemo", but it remains to be seen whether he is the fish DeGeneres mentioned.
During the interview, DeGeneres also addressed speculation about a possible gay couple featured in the recent trailer. "I don't know if it's true or not or if she just has a bad short haircut, you know?" she said, "Who knows if she's a lesbian."
The comedian revealed that "Finding Dory" would be "more complex and layered" than its predecessor. "I think adults will be equally - if not more - drawn to this film," she added.
In a recent press conference, DeGeneres claimed she hadn't been told whether the couple in question were lesbians, but said the inclusion of the characters would be a "great thing." She shared, "I think everything that we see in the media - whether it's television or film or anything you see - should represent everything that's happening in the world. I think everybody that is in the world should be seen and represented."
The comedian joked that she's "offended" by the possible lesbian character's dodgy short haircut. "If that's the definition of a gay woman, then how dare you? Just because someone has a short, bad haircut doesn't mean she's gay," she explained, "She just has a bad hairdresser!"
She added, "I think if you see the movie several times - which I recommend you see it four or five times - there are some gay fish in the background that you'll notice. A lot of them look very gay to me, and it's not obvious until you see it a few times."
