    The gay-themed show Love, Simon is getting both a network and name change. Love, Simon was originally scheduled to air on Disney Plus but will now air on Hulu as a 10-episode run with the possibility of gaining a second season under the new moniker Love, Victor. Disney canned the airing of the show due to it not being “family friendly”. Variety reported on the reasons for the show being axed is due to the alcohol use and “sexual exploration”, writing…
  • Disney’s Mulan and the backdrop of genocide: Why I won't be watching the live-action remake

    Disney’s newest live-action movie, “Mulan,” was released Friday. So far, reviews have ranged from mostly positive to absolutely glowing: “an exciting, well-crafted action movie,” a “robust” and “family-friendly, live-action Disney fantasy,” and an “epic-scale tribute to female empowerment.”However, the feedback on Mulan has chilled considerably after reports that Disney filmed substantial portions of the movie in China’s Xinjiang province, with the blessing and cooperation of the Chinese Communist government.Xinjiang is the home province of some 12 million Muslim Uighurs. According to the U. S. State Department, over one million of them have been moved to concentration camps where “they are...
  • Here’s Why I’m Not Paying Disney $30 To See Live-Action Movie, ‘Mulan,’ And You Shouldn’t Either

    Just in time for Labor Day weekend, Disney released its live-action version of “Mulan” through Disney Plus. Watching the film costs $30 plus the $6.99 monthly subscription fee. I didn’t take the bait, and I hope you will boycott the movie as well.I have no objection to the historical origin of “Mulan,” a story about a young Chinese heroine who poses as a man to fight a war on behalf of her ailing father. As a little girl from China, my mother told me the story many times. I even give partial credit to Mulan’s story for inspiring me...

    The American Mind ^ | 09/08/20 | The Editors
    Everything you need to know about the deep rift in American society can be summed up in this way: Disney’s C-suite, who happily pander to the intellectual-property-stealing, Uighur-jailing, Communist Chinese state, had a hard time imagining that they could film in the American state of Georgia because of their law banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat has been detected. Our ruling classes are so estranged from the country’s heartland, so hostile to the way of life practiced in rural America, that they find Chinese Communists easier to do business with than Georgian pro-lifers. Democrat politicians like Michael Bloomberg and California...

    <p>Another corporation continuing its fealty to the communist regime is seen in this new release.</p> <p>There has been much conversation surrounding the release of the new Disney live-action motion picture. Following its Vault Classics formula of adapting titles from its animation catalog, ‘’Mulan’’ was set to be the studio’s big summer release. COVID changed all of that, and as it now has made its way to streaming, we are seeing some of the small ways it has bowed to the Chinese Communists.</p>

    John Boyega has slammed Disney for 'sidelining' his Star Wars character and giving 'all the nuance' to his white co-stars Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley. The actor, 28, portrayed the franchise's first black Stormtrooper, in The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker and told how he thinks Disney marketed his character as being 'much more important' than he actually was. Speaking in an interview with the October issue of British GQ magazine, he said: 'You get yourself involved in projects and you're not necessarily going to like everything.

    Diversity is making its way onto the Disney Channel. Disney has confirmed it has a bixsexual lead character on "The Owl House" series. The 14-year-old Dominican-American girl, Luz Noceda, is not Disney's first LGBTQ+ character. Pixar featured a gay main character in a short film on Disney Plus, but Luz is the first bisexual character to make a Disney debut on a television series. "The Owl House" series follows Luz's adventure to becoming a witch, even though she does not have any magical abilities. At first, "certain Disney leadership" was not too fond of the idea of having an LGBTQ+...

    Disney continues to make positive steps on LGBT+ representation, confirming for the first time that a lead Disney Channel protagonist is canonically bisexual. The Owl House, which airs on the Disney Channel, has previously dropped hints that its lead character Luz, a 14-year-old Dominican-American, might be queer. In the latest episode, viewers discovered that Amity was planning to ask Luz to go to prom with her, prompting creator Dana Terrace to confirm that at least one of them is bisexual. Terrace wrote on Twitter that it had always been her intention to include “queer kids in the main cast”. When...

    Disney is slashing the age-old theatrical window to ribbons: The much-anticipated live-action remake of Mulan is skipping theaters in the U.S. and debuting on Disney+ on Friday, Sept. 4… for an additional $29.99 fee, that is. The news was announced during Disney’s earnings call on Tuesday, our sister site Variety reports. Mulan — based on the 1998 animated film and starring Liu Yifei as the titular girl who poses as a boy to take her father’s place in China’s imperial army — was originally slated to be released in theaters back in March, but was delayed due to the global...

    Disney dropped ‘Black Is King’ yesterday, a new movie from Beyonce that is being billed as a ‘tribute to black power’, an interesting concept to say the least. Imagine the same type of thing being release to promote ‘white power’, but I digress. Racist overtones aside, ‘Black Is King’ is yet another vehicle for Beyonce in which satanic imagery, like the baphomet headdress you see in the main photo, is splashed all through the movie. Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z have a long and storied history of cozying up to satanic and Illuminati imagery, so much so that here fans...

    Families found the last Muppets reboot lacked innocence. 'Muppets Now' on Disney+ seeks to recapture classic Muppets, while advertising a cross-dressing entertainer. Ever since their first color TV special in 1969, the felt and cloth comedy troupe known as The Muppets have kept their wacky, endearing, musical brand of entertainment going strong. Now updated for the streaming era, the world’s most iconic puppets are back in “Muppets Now,” with new episodes premiering weekly on Disney+.Casting off gimmicky formats of recent years, the beloved characters are mostly back to form with send-ups of popular TV game shows, laughs with celebrity guests,...

    ORLANDO, Fla. – A Georgia woman was arrested at Walt Disney World after security for the Florida resort found two guns and some marijuana in her child's diaper bag, according to court documents. Yunique Smith, 27, of Stone Mountain, Georgia, was arrested July 18 on misdemeanor counts of carrying a concealed weapon and marijuana possession, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Smith was going through the Epcot security line with an adult man, their 7-month-old daughter and her 7-year-old son when the guard spotted a 9mm handgun and a plastic bag containing marijuana, an arrest report said. Orange County deputies responded. A...

    Disney is no longer releasing Mulan on Aug. 21 and is unsetting the movie for the time being. Oy, just when AMC was looking to turn the lights back on with a big movie in pockets of the country. [snip] Disney is also not revealing their playbook, i.e. whether Mulan will debut abroad first before domestic, even though logic would dictate that. Earlier this week, exhibitors and distributors were betting Mulan would stay put; the notion being that the Niki Caro-directed feature adaptation of the 1998 toon would be on Disney+ by at least Christmas. “Over the last few months,...

    NBA players are already complaining about each other at the bubble in Orlando. According to Shams Charania, “multiple tips” have been called into the NBA’s hotline at Disney during the coronavirus pandemic. Players are currently staying inside of a secure bubble at Disney ahead of games starting in about two weeks. I love this so much. That didn’t take long at all for players to start turning on each other. After a few days of being inside the bubble, the hotline is lighting up. Somebody is snitching and we all know what happens to snitches!

    Ruthie Thompson knew the Disney brothers long before they became the household names they are today. Thompson grew up near Walt and Roy when they owned their house on Kingswell Avenue in Los Angeles and was one of several neighborhood kids who served as a live-action reference model for the Disney brothers’ Alice comedies. As an adult, Thompson was offered a job in the Walt Disney Animation Studios Ink & Paint Department. She worked at Disney for 40 years, from 1935 until she retired in 1975. Thompson famously worked on nearly every animated Walt Disney feature film from Snow White...

    Calls have been made to 'cancel Hamilton' just days after the Broadway musical's streaming debut on Disney+, after a renewed focus on it's lead character, Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The show, created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, portrays Hamilton as a 'young, scrappy, and hungry' immigrant and someone who was passionate about the abolition of slavery. However, in light of recent Black Lives Matter protests, the story has now come under greater scrutiny - with some pointing out that Hamilton was a slave trader.

    This Fourth of July weekend, which finds much of America reeling from a rocky first half of 2020, the mainstream and social media hype can be summed up in three words: "Hamilton" is back. The play has won 11 Tony Awards and a Pulitzer Prize for drama, and, according to Forbes, has generated over $1 billion in income from Broadway/London/United States tour ticket sales, publishing, cast recording and merchandising. A filmed version was released on the Disney+ streaming service on Friday.
