Mark your calendars for 30 March 2017, because that’s when Beauty and the Beast will screen in Malaysian cinemas with no cuts.
According to The Star, the movie has been approved for release on March 30th, with none of the cuts the Malaysian Censorship Board had previously proposed.
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.
