Ewan McGregor Takes The Piss Out Of 'Beauty And The Beast' Naysayers

Movie-lovers won't be going to see the new "Beauty and the Beast" in Malaysia, where Walt Disney has shelved the movie's release. Keep reading to find out more...

The composer behind Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" is taking issue with reports that one of the characters in the film is openly gay.

In response, numerous film's stars, including McGregor, have spoken out in support of the film's decision to include an LGBTQ character.

Film director Bill Condon had described the "exclusively gay" scene involving the character Gaston's sidekick, LeFou, who "is confused about his sexuality" and may be having romantic feelings. It's a unusual world! Taken from the 1991 cartoon adaptation of the classic fairy tale by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, there are times when Bill Condon's reverential film nearly feels like a shot-for-shot reworking, but given how beloved the original is, that's no bad thing. From Emma Watson's revealing photos to Disney's choice to include a gay character, here's what you need to know. That's a seriously impressive line up!

Agrees to contract with Cleveland
Multiple sources , including Yahoo's The Vertical , report Sanders agreed to a deal with Cavs with a likely 2017-2018 option date. Sanders appeared to be on his way to being one of the better defensive centers in the league.

The production design and costumes, notably Belle's stunning yellow dress, are impeccable, but the film really comes into its own with the CGI. He said his voice ending up sounding Mexican instead of French. Despite being approved by the film censorship board after the scene of interest was removed, Beauty and the Beast will not be shown in Malaysia in the near future. Interestingly, McKellen turned down the same role in the 1991 animated film. Instead, she spoke to the crowd from the New York Film Society for Kids to share her love of reading, which mirrors Belle's.

"They (the censors) are too sensitive. they should be open-minded, because it's just a movie, just a story".

"Studies have shown that watching LGBT characters in popular entertainment may not only result in greater acceptance of these groups, but also the lifestyles they have adopted", NCCS added. For those that do not know Beauty and the Beast is "premiering" their first homosexual character. "The original of Beauty and the Beast was released in 1992 and now its 2017 and things have moved on from then", the 26-year-old smiled. Watch the trailer below...
