Yet the censors seem to forget that “gay moments” are strewn throughout the Disney canon. In “Cinderella” (1950), Gus and Jack, two male mice, snuggle up to each other; the cuddle is cute until Jack remembers Gus is a guy, pulling his arm away in horror. Timon and Pumbaa, two male characters in “The Lion King” (1994), enjoy a close relationship (and “dress in drag and do the hula”). “Star vs the Forces of Evil”, an animated children’s series, featured a gay couple kissing; “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (2016) offered tender moments between Baze and Chirrut.
