MCU movies, animation, and ABC shows (Agents of Shield, Agent Carter) are confirmed to be leaving Netflix when Disney launches it’s own streaming service in 2019. The Netflix produced Marvel shows (Daredevil, The Defenders, The Punisher etc.) will remain on Netflix because they are considered “Netflix Originals”!
It was also announced that Disney will be creating 4-5 new TV shows based off Disney Brands exclusively for the service at launch, so it’s possible future Marvel shows could be made for that platform in the future!
get the FUCK out of here with your “gay LeFou” hate. If you haven’t seen the original movie in a long enough time that you don’t even remember who he is, then you have no right to talk about it. OBVIOUSLY he’s going to have a change of heart and most likely end up with someone else by the live action movie’s end, once Gaston dies; like, they’re not going to do something this ambitious only to make it a tired trope. and it IS ambitious, as there has literally never been a single canon lgbt character in any disney movie. ever.
as someone who has been involved with the BATB fandom for years, I can safely say that gay/bi/queer LeFou was always a very popular theory. LeFou sings an entire fucking song about Gaston. this isn’t coming out of nowhere – and now I see people being mad that the gay character is short and slightly overweight and goofy, like, what the fuck is wrong with you? so gay people can only be hot and flamboyant? are you actually kidding me right now?
LeFou isn’t villainous, he’s not “ostracized” by the village – he’s offbeat and quirky, but generally well-liked by the townspeople. so I, for one, am excited and curious to see how this plays out – and hey, if it ends up being not so good rep, then I’ll back off. but don’t judge till you SEE it, for pete’s sake.

So I was finally able to take some better pictures of my Mulan and Shang set!
I love this set so much! Pictures do NOT do it justice! I’m so impressed with all the details Disney put into Mulan especially! I would honestly liken the quality of Mulan’s outfit to that of the first line of designer couple dolls. She’s THAT impressive! And she’s not even wearing a dress!

Disney have apparently decided to have their first openly gay character in Lefou and it is made explicit in his singing scene.
Director Bill Condon said ‘The studio is sending out a message that this is normal and natural – and this is a message that will be heard in every country of the world, even countries where it’s still socially unacceptable or even illegal to be gay.’
Belle also has been characterised as much more feminist and as an inventor.
I hope it’s tasteful and really does echo an open and honest characterisation.
What a step forward though. I feel that a decision by the huge corporation that is Disney should have a rippling effect and hopefully younger generations will continue to see a growing positive representation.
