Finding Dory trailer sparks rumours of Pixar’s first lesbian couple

Finding Dory, which will premiere at next month’s Edinburgh International Film Festival, could be the first Disney Pixar film to include a lesbian couple.

A moment in the latest trailer for the eagerly-awaited sequel to Finding Nemo, which you can watch below, appears to show a lesbian couple.

The moment in the trailer which sparked rumours that the film will include a lesbian couple arrives when an octopus appears to knock a baby from a pram. When the girl’s presumed parents turn around, they both appear to be women.

Pixar’s latest movie centres around the eponymous, Ellen DeGeneres-voiced Paracanthurus embarking on a search for her family.

As well as Finding Dory, this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival – which runs between June 15 and 26 – will showcase 161 features from 46 different countries, including 22 world premieres, five international premiers, 17 European premiers and 85 UK premieres.

Highlights include In Person events with both Sex and the City star Kim Cattrell (click HERE for full news of that one) and cult filmmaker Kevin Smith, and Jason Connery’s anticipated directorial debut, Tommy’s Honour.

Speaking about this year’s festival, Artistic Director Mark Adams said: “It’s a real thrill to unveil this year’s programme and I am looking forward to showcasing so many great films and welcoming so many talented filmmakers to our 70th edition.

“As always we like to offer an incredibly broad range of work to ensure there is always something for everyone – from mesmeric retrospectives through to absorbing new short films, to 130 new features from 46 countries, rest assured this year’s EIFF will challenge, provoke and entertain audiences in equal measure.”
