'Beauty and the Beast' postponed in Malaysia

'Beauty and the Beast' postponed in Malaysia

Indeed, Watson knew she could not play in the project as it had already committed to star in the film of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" and two projects required to do serious work with many rehearsals, something that the 26 year old actress is not bear.

Even the actor, Josh Gad, had stated previously that "there was nothing in the script that said "LeFou is gay"", only to later rescind that comment, which makes me feel as though the character's sexuality was added last minute to halfheartedly attempt to pander to the LGBTQIA audience.

The Beauty and the Beast cast includes Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar victor Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle's eccentric, but lovable father; and Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston's long-suffering aide-de-camp.

The Beauty And The Beast remake was supposed to be Disney's baby.

Tucci, who lives in London with his English wife Felicity, says he hopes the characters will help to normalise couples of different races in film and TV, which is still rarely seen in the US.

The story Beauty and the Beast threatened with Russian "gay propaganda" ban first appeared on The Sydney Morning Herald.

"I don't want people going into this movie thinking that there's like a huge narrative there".

The SDF, which includes YPG-allied Arab groups, says it ruled out any Turkish role during meetings with US officials last month. On Friday, the SDF said they have enough forces to capture Raqqa from the IS with the support of the USA -led coalition.

Buena Vista Columbia Tristar Films Malaysia Sdn Bhd, the distribution arm of Disney movies in Malaysia, when contacted by Astro AWANI confirmed the matter following public queries on the postponement. According to the local Disney representative, they are now reviewing a new release date for the movie here in Malaysia. "I love the ambiguity there".

Emma Watson believes love is transcending.

He wrote: "Disney films for children's entertainment are usually associated with wholesome and mainstream values".

It was reported that the local release date for the highly-anticipated film had been postponed due to an "internal review". And Disney's recent successful track record with live-action remakes of Cinderella and The Jungle Book suggests the formula is working well.

Not wanting to give away more details, Condon remarked that 'it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie'. The movie is a remake of 1991 animated classic and revolves around the love story of a courageous and intelligent Belle and a cursed prince.

Beauty and the Beast will be released in USA theaters on March 17, 2017.
