Disney at their laziest and most generic, this title and that synopsis could be applied to most sci-fi or fantasy movies out there.

Well, perhaps yes. But lets give it a chance, shall we?

In her review of 'Turning Red', Grace Randolph revealed that WDAS's next two films might feature openly LGBTQ+ characters.
One movie would have a non-binary character and the other an openly gay character, and could be a protagonist.

UGH!!! Why can't the people just be PEOPLE? Without all the hashtags and labels. I can understand the whole representation thing to a point, but very few, if any, movies have characters that represent me. I'd like to think I am more nuanced and complex to be boiled down to a hashtag or two. I guess I'm different in that I don't need or look for movies to validate my whole plane of existence. I realize I am simplifying the whole thing, but I have to leave in a minute to go get my ears shortened.

I also find it odd, bizarre, and more than a bit creepy why certain groups instant on imposing their sexuality in kids' media. I don't care what you do what to whom behind closed doors, it's not my business, stop making it my business

I find it odd, bizarre, and more than a bit creepy that your focus on the sex part of sexual orientation and gender identity representation in children's media is very telling and not what members of the LGBT+ community are advocating for...

I mean Disney films have almost gone a century depicting heterosexual relationships without depicting sexual content, I don’t know why people think they can’t with a same-sex relationships either.

This. Not that hard to understand. No oneís trying to shoehorn anything anywhere LGBTQ+ people exist and their stories deserve to be told just the same as any other story. Just because you donít identify as LGBTQ+ doesnít mean you canít identify with their experiences.

absolutely! there's no need to be an absolutely massive bigot about it. it's like what Thumper in Bambi says..

"if you can't say something nice, don't say it at all."

Ahh of course, how silly of me, all opinions are valid, unless you have the alternative one. Then shut up, we don't want to hear it

You're missing the point. None of these classic Disney characters you speak of were hetrosexual. Nor were they gay or anything. About the only tag you could place on them was that they were perhaps male and female. And that was it. They were not placing any emphasis on these characters in that manner at all. There were no hashtags or labels for Ariel, Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi, or any of the others.

Nope, no heterosexuality here at all...

And I believe you're conflating sexual orientation with sexual identity. While they're related, they are two different concepts.

I know itíd be a shame, I think it looks really promising, coming from someone who found the past two WDAS films underwhelming.

People should really stop listening to Grace Randolph. Her sole purpose in life seem to be to stir **** up.

I'm not really conflating anything that I am aware of. Again, those are labels and I'm hoping that studios get away from that. And it's not just about the LGBTGIF ( ). It's about anyone with some sort of characteristic or "label" that people zoom in and focus in on. It isn't about one layer. Or two even. It's about ALL the layers of a person. Stripping down someone to just one layer isn't really representation. You're just highlighting one aspect and overshadowing everything else. As for the photos, they're just kissing. There's no real indication that Snow White and Prince Charming end up marrying, doing the n---y, and being parents. As one example. Nothing is being implied or suggested. I think representation can be ok if it's done right. And not just to have some box ticked off. A great example of that would be Sulu in the last Star Trek movie. That felt so forced and tacked on. And it's a great example of ticking off a box. Same for the supposed same-sex scene in The Rise of Skywalker. Useless and not even representation. It's so shallow and I think that's the worst kind of representation. We are more than just one thing.
