Lena Waithe is voicing Disney's first openly-LGBTQ animated character in "Onward"



In Onward, Lena Waithe voices the cyclops Officer Specter, who appears in a scene where she talks to another character about how “My girlfriend’s daughter got me pulling my hair out.”

When asked about the scene, Onward producer Kori Rae said “It just kind of happened. The scene, when we wrote it, was kind of fitting and it opens up the world a little bit, and that’s what we wanted.” Director Dan Scanlon added that “It’s a modern fantasy world and we want to represent the modern world.”
