Just last week, Disney announced that the film was put under internal review. There were concerns that the Censorship Board wanted to make cuts to the movie because of a gay character. This caused an uproar on social media and garnered international attention when Disney steadfastly refused to allow the cuts.

Walt Disney Malaysia is expected to make a statement soon regarding the movie’s new release date. Tickets will also be available for purchase soon, according to major cinemas. YAY.
