'Finding Dory' may be the first Disney-Pixar film to feature a gay couple

It was spotted in the trailer, but we all missed it.

Last week the trailer for Finding Dory was released, but there was a very special detail that everybody missed.

Some eagle-eyed viewers spotted a lesbian couple in the background, walking around the aquarium.

As the trailer goes on and Dory and pals make their way through the aquarium, we see one moment where two women turn around and hand a toy to a baby in a pram.

It's presumed the two women are a couple, strolling along with their baby and considering the lack of LGBTQ representation in Disney films, it's hopeful news for present and future gay Disney fans.

While many people have been quick to dispel any suggestions of a gay couple in a kid's film, many Disney fans have been quick to praise Disney and encourage the idea.

Considering the voice of Dory herself is Ellen DeGeneres, it doesn't really make sense that some people are pissing on the parade.

This latest development comes soon after popular fan campaigns to add some LGBT elements to other existing Disney-Pixar franchises.

One of the biggest has been #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend, which was trending on Twitter for several days last week.

Both in the comics and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America's relationship with Bucky has been one of the most compelling features of theCaptain America stories, especially since Bucky's return from the dead in the original Winter Soldier arc in 2005. While they've never been portrayed as anything but best friends and allies, there is a deep fraternal love between the pair.

There has already been a campaign to encourage Disney to make Elsa from Frozen the first LGBTQ princess, and a number of Star Wars fans have asked for Poe Dameron and Finn to become an item in the new trilogy.
