The release date for highly anticipated Disney film Beauty and the Beast has been postponed indefinitely in Malaysia, the country's major cinemas said on Monday (Mar 13).

At a recent junket in Los Angeles, Menken said that while it has been made public that the character is gay, he doesn't agree with how it has been described by many.

Emma Watson's preparations to play as Belle in "Beauty and the Beast" were rather hectic, Entertainment Weekly reported. If it does achieve that, Beauty and the Beast will become the top opener, and potentially the top grosser, of the studio's reboots to date. "Living in England now, you see that a lot on television, whereas in America you don't see that very often".

The story Beauty and the Beast threatened with Russian "gay propaganda" ban first appeared on The Sydney Morning Herald.

Emma Stone later went to win huge critical acclaim for her portrayal of Mia, picking up a Bafta, SAG Award, Golden Globe, Oscar for Best Actress.

When we contacted Disney Malaysia, no specific reason was given on why the release has been postponed. "I was manic, I was so hectic but I loved it". Today, we're chatting with stars Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Audra McDonald, who take us behind the scenes of a tale as old as time.

Because of the tight schedule in "Beauty and the Beast", Emma Watson had to drop her other projects that would cause complications.

Not wanting to give away more details, Condon remarked that 'it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie'. It was more of just a slight addition. This newest video shows off some of the magical movie's spectacular sets and costumes, including Belle's iconic blue and yellow dresses.

The new "Beauty and the Beast" film hits theaters in March 2017, and it's shaping up to be quite the production.
