'Lightyear' makers unfazed by bans in places with 'backward beliefs'

The makers of Disney-Pixar’s new blockbuster about Buzz Lightyear told AFP on Thursday that they were warned of a likely backlash against the same-sex marriage it features, but did not care.

More than a dozen Muslim-majority countries have refused to show “Lightyear” — a sci-fi spin-off from the Pixar classic “Toy Story”, set for global release on Friday — in opposition to the marriage between two female side characters.

“We had been warned this would be a likely outcome,” producer Galyn Susman told AFP in a Zoom interview.
