New Disney/Pixar Movie Banned in Several Countries
The upcoming Disney/Pixar movie Lightyear won’t be released in several countries, including Saudi Arabia, according to multiple reports.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film was banned in various Middle Eastern countries over the inclusion of a same-gender kiss scene.
The UAE’s Media Regulatory Office announced just days before the film’s June 16 release that it was not licensed for public screening due to its “violation of the country’s media content standards,” the outlet reported.
Lightyear will also not be in theaters in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Malaysia, or Indonesia, according to Deadline.
