Disney's new Pixar film "Lightyear" was released in theaters on June 17. It is a spinoff of the "Toy Story" franchise, and tells the story of Buzz Lightyear who "gets stranded on a dangerous faraway planet with his commanding officer and crew. Their only hope of getting off the planet is to test a special fuel. To do that, Buzz has to fly into space and repeatedly try to jump to hyper-speed."
So why has the so-called children's film been banned in Malaysia and other Muslim countries? Because Disney went woke and not only put a same-sex kissing scene in the cartoon, but then also refused to cut the scene.
Fox News reports:
Malaysia's Film Censorship Board said it approved the movie with parental guidance for those under 13 on the condition of modifications. Scenes and dialogues that it "found to contain elements promoting the LGBT lifestyle, which violate key aspects of the Guidelines on the Film Censorship," were ordered to "be cut and muted."
"However, the film distributors did not agree to comply with the instructions" and decided instead to cancel the screening, the board said, adding that it would not compromise on any LGBTQ scenes.
The statement did not specify which scenes violated censorship guidelines.
Authorities across much of the Muslim world have barred "Lightyear" from being played at cinemas because it includes a brief kiss between a lesbian couple.
Most Muslims consider homosexual behavior to be a sin, and even criminalize same-sex relationships in many Muslim nations.
The same-sex kiss, which happens in the first 30 minutes of the cartoon, happens between the character Alisha Hawthorne and her partner.
The scene has received criticism in the United States as well.
"Lightyear" star Chris Evans called people in the U.S. criticizing the scene "idiots" in a recent interview.
"The real truth is those people are idiots," Evans said during an interview with Reuters Television.
"There's always going to be people who are afraid and unaware and trying to hold on to what was before. But those people die off like dinosaurs. I think the goal is to pay them no mind, march forward and embrace the growth that makes us human."
I don't think the issue is that people are mad about the kiss in general. It is that this film is a cartoon meant for young children. That sort of indoctrination for small children is disgusting!
