Pop Culture Fix: Is Aubrey Plaza Really Kathryn Hahn’s Lesbian Ex in “Agatha: Coven of Chaos?”

Feature image via The Late Show With Stephen Colbert / Disney+.

+ Last week I started seeing all these comic book sites reporting that Aubrey Plaza will be playing Kathryn Hahn’s lesbian ex in Agatha: Coven of Chaos. I couldn’t find any actual source so I just ignored it (but not in my heart; I kept hoping in my heart). Now, it’s on all kinds of movie sites and the Twitter scoop acocunt Can We Get Some Toast seems to be confirming it, and they are right about A LOT. According to them, Aubrey will be playing “Rio Vidal! The FIRST Green Witch and Agatha’s ex.” LET IT BE!

  1. I know I’m not the only one hoping to see Agatha and Rio reconcile…

    Oh, wait, no, it’s on Disney, so no kissing scenes! Bad! BAD LESBIAN! (unless there’s a profit to be made, right Disney?)
