Ontario school cancels ‘Lightyear’ trip over ‘questionable content’

An Ontario elementary school canceled a trip to the movies to watch the Disney film Lightyear in a last-minute decision over “questionable content.”

The Toy Story origin account has generated much controversy over a same-sex female couple sharing a kiss in the film.

Questionable content

The school informed parents in a message that “the movie [junior kindergarten to Grade 3] students are going to see on Wednesday, June 22 has been changed to ‘Sing 2.’”

“This change has been made from the original movie ‘Lightyear’ due to questionable content in this movie that we feel is not suitable for all of our students,” it added.

Not just Canada

The film has been banned in many nations in the Middle East, with at least 14 nations noted.

Lightyear has also received strong criticism from many in the U.S. over its sexual themes targeted at a young viewing audience.

Many were also quick to note the film flopped over opening weekend, ranking far below expectations at a huge loss for the Pixar/Disney launch.

Many have noticed the “go woke, go broke” trend seems to be happening to Lightyear as well, with parents simply not interested in their children viewing such content at such a young age.
