Pixar Is Looking for a Voice Actor for Its First-Ever Transgender Character

To be featured in an upcoming untitled project.

Slowly building a lineup inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community, Pixar is now looking for a voice actor for its first-ever transgender character. The news was revealed via Twitter with an image of a casting call flyer.

“Pixar is casting a youth voice-over role for an upcoming animated project. The character, Jess, is a 14-year-old transgender girl. She’s compassionate, funny, and always has your back. We’re looking for actresses 12 to 17 years old,” the document reads. Additional requirements for the role include those who “are enthusiastic, outgoing, funny and energetic,” as well as “feel comfortable acting in front of a microphone.”

As of now, neither Disney nor Pixar have confirmed which movie the new trans role would be featured in, although some are speculating it to be Turning Red, which is slated to debut in 2022. Stay tuned as we learn more.
