Disney will introduce their first Pixar LGBT animated character, Officer Specter, in their upcoming film Onward.

When Specter and her police sidekick Officer Gore pull over a vehicle, the male passenger complains that his girlfriend's children distracted him. Specter then laments: "My girlfriend's daughter made me tear my hair", according to Slate.

The actor has spoken about how voicing a Pixar character was one of his professional dreams.

Specter is voiced by Lena Waithe, who also is lesbian. While the "exclusively gay moment" in the Beauty and the Beast live-action remake made some splashy headlines, once the film was released, it was clear that the moment was more implied than explicitly queer.


Kore Rae, one of the producers of the film, recently said, "It just happened".

In addition, The Eternals movie, which is due to come out in November 2020, will feature an gay couple played by Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) and Haaz Sleiman (Jack Ryan). "The scene, when we wrote it, fit and opened a little to the world, which is what we wanted ".

The 2016 Disney/Pixar film Finding Dory included a brief scene with two women walking with a stroller, but the characters never spoke, and filmmakers neither confirmed nor denied their identification.

Next week, MCU stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt will reunite in Onward, the latest animated film from Pixar. Papenfuss detailed, "A few problems: With just a single LGBTQ character, the modern world of "Onward" isn't so modern".


Director Dan Scanlon mentioned of the character: "It's a fashionable fantasy globe and we want to characterize the modern day environment".

Given how small the part is, people are disappointed to say the least.

Disney-Pixar's Onward hits theaters March 8.

"You gotta have Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who's in this movie, but I think it would be really great in the room because she's so amusing", said Pratt.
