A new trailer for Finding Dory has fans with a keen eye reporting that a couple that appears briefly in the trailer appears to be lesbians.

At the 1:07 mark in the trailer, Hank the Octopus, voiced by Ed O’Neill, finds himself in a baby carriage next to two women who pick up a dropped sippy cup.

“Poor baby, let me get that for you,” one says, as both panic when they then see the octopus chilling in the stroller. Check it out below.

Disney has not commented on whether or not the two women featured momentarily in the trailer are lesbians.

Still, some fans were quick to express their excitement over the scene.
