Pixar Upsets Few Folks
Jenny Brewer: Pixar takes a stand on LGBTQIA+ representation amidst global bans of Lightyear film
As reported by South China Morning Post, beyond the United Arab Emirates, Disney was unable to secure permission in countries including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Indonesia, Malaysia and Lebanon, with a screening in China “also unlikely”. In response to pressure to cut scenes or face potential revenue losses, Pixar has instead doubled down on its decision to keep the scene, which it reinstated in March following internal protests from employees.
I have no idea if Lightyear is any good, but I'm happy to see Pixar stand by this in the film (even if they needed their employees to push them).
