And again, Malaysia is making adjustments in the tastes of local moviegoers. As reported by the state Commission of Malaysia in cinematography censorship, it is unclear why Walt Disney canceled the premiere of the film musical “beauty and the beast”. Supposedly they did this without explanation.
Malaysian censors do not deny that the scene with the character’s sexual orientation was cut, although Walt Disney and has made no claims for this reason.
“We gave the film a rental permit with the 13+ rating, but cut one short gay-scene” — told reporters Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid, Chairman of Malaysian state censorship.
The premiere of the film was scheduled for 16 March, but now the Malaysian audience, most likely, the tape will not see.
Meanwhile, in Russia “beauty and the Beast” will be released with a rating of 16+. State Duma deputies have confused the statements of the Director of “beauty and the beast” by bill Condon, about the fact that the film is character is gay. However, after a thorough inspection Committee of the Institute of cultural heritage Likhachev any propaganda of sexual minorities in the feed was observed. The premiere of the film, the main role which was played by Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, in Russia will be held on March 16.
