After a groundbreaking announcement from Disney Pixar on its first non-binary character in its latest film ‘Elemental’, the voice actor for the character was met with bigoted hate.
‘Elemental’ tells the story of Element City, where fire, water, land, and air residents live together. It revolves around Ember, a tough, quick-witted, and fiery young woman, whose friendship with a fun, sappy, go-with-the-flow guy named Wade challenges her beliefs about the world they live in.
Although a minor character, Disney Pixar introduced its first ever non-binary character, Lake Ripple, the younger sibling of one of the film’s main characters, Wade. Lake Ripple is voiced by also non-binary voice actor Kai Hauser who took to Twitter to announce and express their excitement.
