Another! Lightyear banned from Saudi Arabia for gay kiss scene

Another! Lightyear banned from Saudi Arabia for gay kiss scene

It’s not today that we hear about the banning of movies, series, games and the like in conservative countries because of references or presentation of LGBTQIA+ content.

The new “victim” of this censorship is the animation Lightyear, a new Pixar film that tells the origin story of the iconic Toy Story character.

According to Variety, Lightyear will not be shown in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other West Asian countries, as it includes a kiss between people of the same gender.

The scene, involving a new character who is a lesbian space ranger named Alisha, showed her and her partner starting a family and greeting each other with a kiss on the lips. Originally, Disney had cut this scene, but animators at Pixar published an open letter against the studio’s attitude.

After much controversy, Disney reversed its decision and the scene was reinstated into production, but not everyone was happy about it.

Initially, many believed the film would be approved in the United Arab Emirates, but production was eventually stopped after some users on social media began accusing Disney and the film of being disrespectful to Muslims and Islamists.

Italia Film, which distributes Disney films in the region, or Disney in London did not comment on the matter.

Apparently, Disney is getting more and more used to this type of restriction in these regions, as movies like Eternals and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness were also barred for including scenes with displays of affection between LGBTQIA+ characters.

In the end, who suffers are the fans, who are prevented from enjoying the productions because of something so simple.

And you, do you think Disney should stop including this kind of scene in their movies?
