'If you live anywhere near Alabama, you should not go see this film. McGregor then finished with "what would Jesus think?"

The stance of NCCS, stated in a letter with the header "The Gay Agenda in Disney's Beauty and the Beast" addressed to pastors and church leaders, comes ahead of the film's opening in Singapore cinemas on Thursday.

It's not just an Alabama drive-in that's pushing back against the new Disney movie.

The country's censorship board told several sources that "it is only one short scene but it is inappropriate because many children will be watching this movie".

But Emma was quick to warn fans not expect a big gay narrative for the character.

McGregor isn't the only star poking fun at the controversy. The new rules allowed depiction of gay characters, but only if they show repentance or are portrayed in a negative light. "To me, he has always been look [ing] up to Gaston, in a nerdy kind of way".

The Tigers trailed by as much as 13 in the second half, but cut the lead to just one on a tough three-point play by Marcquise Reed.

"I'd love to see a sequel to Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" starring LeFou and Gaston", said Gad. "I don't think it is going to influence anyone".

"I was thrilled to find out that she loved the original, and she loved the way I played Belle, and we saw her the same way", O'Hara says.

She's right. The controversy has been hugely overblown. "It is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie".

As well as Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, "Beauty and the Beast" stars Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Luke Evans, Stanley Tucci and Emma Thompson.

Le Fou's sexual orientation is never overtly stated. Making him gay just means he has something of a gently suggested crush on Gaston, which makes his character more sympathetic and his loyalty more understandable.

The minor cut concerned a "gay moment" in the film, said Abdul Halim.

Responding to the criticisms of some moviegoers Condon said: "Oh God".
