Disney’s ‘Onward’ Banned In Middle East Over Lesbian Character

03/09/2020 | Daily Wire

Multiple Middle Eastern markets have banned the Disney/Pixar animated movie “Onward” for featuring an explicitly lesbian character. “Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have all banned the film due to the reference,” reports Deadline. “The film, released regionally this week, is nowhere to be seen on cinema schedules in those territories. Other Middle East markets such as Bahrain, Lebanon and Egypt are showing the film.” Last month, after Disney successfully kept it under wraps, reports surfaced that “Onward” would be breaking new ground by being the first animated movie to feature an openly LGBTQ character voiced by Lena Waithe.
