Cars 4, the fourth instalment of the highly popular Disney/Pixar Studios films about a bunch of racing cars, will feature the first gay scene between two cars in film history.
In a move that will please liberals and shock republicans in equal measure, two new characters, Aaron and Romano, will embark on a steamy relationship after meeting at a service station. In a subplot to the main story about a car winning a race against the odds, the two gay cars will face discrimination and alienation from their peers. Eventually they go their own way across America, before facing a tragic end at the hands of a gang of redneck trucks in the deep south.
Disney/Pixar have been working to increase LGBT representation in their films lately and hope the emotional story of Aaron and Romano will appeal to people of all backgrounds. Plans are already afoot for a transgender car to appear in Cars 5.
