The pseudo-prequel to the original Toy Story that told the origin story of everyone’s favourite space ranger, Lightyear, was one of 2022’s most promising global blockbusters, that is until it was banned in multiple countries.

This is due to the fact that the film depicted a same-sex relationship, which for a handful of countries around the world, deemed too inappropriate for a film targeted at children.

Indonesia and Malaysia were part of these countries that prohibited the theatrical release of Lightyear but after a month and a half of the film’s release date, fans from these countries can finally watch Buzz Lightyear’s origin stories through Disney+ Hotstar.

Unfortunately, only adult fans can watch it as the film is rated 18+ for Malaysian viewers and 21+ for Indonesian viewers on the platform. With all the controversy surrounding the film’s initial release, this was certainly a safe way to ensure Lightyear’s release in these countries.

After watching Lightyear on Disney+ Hotstar, IGN Southeast Asia can confirm that the same-sex relationship is kept intact, with even the kiss between the two characters not being cut or altered in any way.

It is somewhat bizarre for any Pixar film to be given such a high age rating, as the highest rating Pixar films usually go would be a Parental Guidance (PG) rating. Films like The Incredibles, Brave and Pixar’s last five films from Onward had been rated PG.

This release brings hope for another recently banned movie in Malaysia to make its streaming debut, Thor: Love and Thunder.

The highly anticipated fourth Thor movie was delayed indefinitely before being shelved, so hopefully, within the next two months, Malaysians can finally see this entry in the MCU.
