Disney Pulls ‘Beauty and the Beast’ from Malaysia over Gay Censorship

In response, Disney completely pulled Beauty and the Beast from Malaysian theaters. Malaysia was supposed to be among the countries opening the film this week, but that’s not going to happen anymore. Otherwise, Disney hasn’t commented.

Other modern changes to Beauty and the Beast include removing the corset from Belle’s iconic yellow dress and also making Belle an inventor.

 

Beauty and the Beast debuts in theaters this Friday, March 17.
