WOW! This is a first! On March 17, 2017, Disney will release a new ‘Beauty and The Beast’ and it’s a real beauty alright! It’s no doubt going to have a few parents up in arms, especially if they haven’t seen the previews or read the reviews about the new gay scene in it! It will be interesting to see if the new ‘Beauty and The Beast’ draws a higher or lower attendance than it’s orginal Disney movie. Will people be drawn to witnessing Disney’s first “exclusively gay scene” or be turned off by it?
So much for Disney’s past movies of little princesses who dream about kissing little princes. This turns over a whole new leaf for Disney movies. Is this the new trend now? Are they going to remake all of their movies with relationships and include gay scenes? What’s next? Revamping Mickey Mouse?
H/T Daily Mail:
In Disney movies, princesses have always met their prince charming.
But, in a change of convention, one character in the new ‘Beauty and the Beast’ film is set to have the studio’s first ‘exclusively gay scene’.
In the film, starring Emma Watson, manservant LeFou will explore his sexuality after developing feelings for macho leading man Gaston.
In an interview with Attitude magazine, director Bill Condon said: ‘LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston.
‘He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. It is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.’
Mr Condon said the character, played by Josh Gad, is part of a ‘watershed moment’ for Disney. He said: ‘The studio is sending out a message that this is normal and natural – and this is a message that will be heard in every country of the world, even countries where it’s still socially unacceptable or even illegal to be gay.’
Miss Watson is also making the leading role of Belle more feminist. Once a dreamy bookworm, Belle has been transformed into an inventor.
In the original 1991 animated film, LeFou sings a pub ditty to cheer up his friend Gaston, a ladies’ man intent on winning Belle’s affection.
The lyrics are: ‘No one’s quick as Gaston, no one’s neck’s as incredibly thick as Gaston’s.’
For there’s no man in town half as manly. Perfect, a pure paragon.’
In the live-action remake, the beast is played by Dan Stevens and brought to life with state-of-the-art CGI technology.
Wait a minute, Disney! Since when is a scene of two men involved or ‘exploring feelings’ for each other and/or kissing each other a ‘normal and natural’ occurance?
This is nothing more than the Hollywood liberals trying to get Americans to buy into a false narrative that two men exploring feelings for each other in a relationship is ‘normal and natural’. The next thing you know, Disney will be telling Americans in movies that a heterosexual relationship is ABnormal. Don’t buy into the Hollywood liberal nonsense!
But it’s not only the Disney movies that have gone down hill. The Disney Channel is nothing to write home about either. It seems, Disney is also lowering itself when it comes to the Disney channel as well.
In an episode of ‘Star vs the Forces of Evil’ which aired on channel Disney XD a gay couple can be seen sharing a kiss for this first time in the history of the company.
In the second series of the cartoon, protagonist Star and her friend Marco attend a concert and find themselves surrounded by kissing couples.
Among the crowd two men can be seen sharing a smooch and later in the episode two further lesbian couples are also spotted kissing.
What’s next Disney, movies of transgenders and transgender washrooms being the norm? I guess you haven’t been paying close attention to Target’s stock lately have you? Or maybe Disney forgot what happened with their last movie ‘Finding Dory’?
If you ask me, Bob Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Company has certainly ventured way off the original path of it’s original founder, Walt Disney. Walt Disney had high expectations and high standards. I highly doubt he would approve of these recent films produced by Disney.
Walt Disney was about providing quality entertaiment for children. Whether it was drawing pictures or animations like ‘Mutt and Jeff’, ‘Koko the Clown’ or ‘Oswald the Rabbit’…Walt Disney was about pure and simple entertainment.
Walt Disney was raised in the Midwest and brought up with strong values and appreciation for hard work. He produced films like ‘Mickey Mouse’, ‘Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs’, ‘Dumbo’ and ‘Bambi’. These were films for the young and innocent.
If Walt Disney were alive today, I highly doubt he would approve of adding any ‘gay scenes’ to any films produced for children with the Disney name on it. The Disney we knew then, is NOT the same Disney we know today.
Why do Hollywood liberals have to destroy a simple pleasure like parents seeing a children’s Disney movie with their precious and young children? Couldn’t you at least change the name too? Why create a deception?
As far as I’m concerned, Disney might as well be the next….Target.
One thing is for sure, I know of a lot of parents and grandparents that won’t be seeing the reboot of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ with their children and grandchilden.
