Finding Dory's disability culture

This illuminating article highlights many facets of disability culture present in Finding Dory.


“People with disabilities do not see themselves very often reflected in popular culture with authenticity steeped in the lived experience. Not only are many disabled characters played by non-disabled people; the storytellers are usually non-disabled who craft narratives about disability by using stereotypes and cliched tropes, robbing disabled characters and stories of agency and diversity.”

The article covers three main themes:

#1: Parental anxiety and support

#2: Social Exclusion and Ableism

#3: Collective Access
