Pixar Announces Casting Search for Their First Transgender Role. Per a casting director for the studio, Disney-Pixar is looking to cast their first official transgender role for an upcoming and yet to be named project. The news was first shared via Trans March on Twitter which read: “We have confirmed this is legit, so share away!”
Trans March followed it up with a second tweet that shared, “Sorry folks, we should have been more specific with how we know this is real. We talked to the casting director and they sent us this flyer. They’re reaching out to other orgs as well, but we got the sense we’re the first to post about it.”
Here is a closer look at the flyer for those who may be interested:
This will be the first openly trans character for the animation studio, but it is currently unknown if the upcoming project will be a short film, feature film, or animated Disney+ series. As they have always done, it seems Pixar is looking to branch out and showcase yet another project that explores the depths of the human experience and as promised, is looking to feature more stories about LGBTQ+ characters.
This is a developing story, so be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney-Pixar!
