August 14, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) Disney is reportedly pushing the homosexual envelope yet again with an upcoming film in which it will feature for the first time an openly gay character. The move is being hailed as a "turning point" for Disney.
British comedian Jack Whitehall will play a gay character in Jungle Cruise, which is based on the iconic theme park ride of the same name, the UKs Sun reports. The film, which stars Dwayne The Rock Johnson and Emily Blunt, is slated for an October 2019 release.
Whitehalls character is reportedly the brother of Blunts, and a gay man - one who is hugely effete, very camp and very funny, a source told the Sun. "This latest script, set at a time when it wasnt socially acceptable to be gay, is another significant turning point.
Notably, the movie takes place in the 19th century, which suggests either an inaccurate portrayal of the eras attitudes about homosexuality, or that those attitudes will be a plot point adding to the films ideological agenda.
Whitehall has confirmed he is in the film, though CBS News notes that neither he nor Disney have confirmed the accuracy of the character description.

i hope it fails.
Walt has to be spinning in his grave. Using his name to pimp for homosexuals. Not good.
I say Disney should put all of its resources behind this film. I mean bet all of Disney on it.
Would love to see them burn the whole thing down.
“Notably, the movie takes place in the 19th century, which suggests either an inaccurate portrayal of the eras attitudes about homosexuality, or that those attitudes will be a plot point adding to the films ideological agenda.”
Is the film based on actual events that occurred in the 19th century?
Who blows who in this cartoon porn?
What about the Walt Disney estate? Are any of the family alive to have a say or protest?
ABC probably silenced them long ago.
“What about the Walt Disney estate? Are any of the family alive to have a say or protest?”
It does not matter if they are dead or alive, it matters if they own a controlling interest, and if so, what their agenda may be.
This is what “Progressivism” is all about: progressively screwing up America.
WOW! That type. No one has ever seen such a thing before.
Disney is corrupted top to bottom with perversion. The leadership and talent have all cast their tents toward Sodom.

The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in Wednesdays installment of Life with Archie when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics first openly gay character. Andrews death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.
The way in which Archie dies is everything that you would expect of Archie, said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO. He dies heroically. He dies selflessly. He dies in the manner that epitomizes not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us. Its what Archie has come to represent over the past almost 75 years.
Kellers character first joined Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones and Reggie Mantle in the Archie Comics spin-off Veronica in 2010. He later appeared in his own solo title.
In Life with Archie, Kevin Keller is a married military veteran and newly elected senator whos pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting.
I dont purchase Disney products any more, went to Disney World in 1973, not since.
“turning point” = New Low.
I think that it would have an effect if they spoke out but they probably dont want their house burned down.
Sounds like they went with a flamer.
I think the play here is to attack Disney for promoting a gay stereotype.
