Hi. I wanted to say something regarding the Harry/Gil kiss. According to Clevver News, the kiss was never in the movie to begin with. Disney PR states that it was just something improvised by the actors (meaning they were probably goofing off). It was never an actual scene, nor was it scripted. What do you think of that?
That excuse should be debunked tbh- it was in the book of the film, where Harry and Gil in the whole Uma victory thing, are described as locking lips with each other.
And the movies novelisations only exclude the songs (which kinda makes sense as they do take more pages)- but outside of that, both Descendants 1 and 2’s novels were pretty accurate with the films- meaning that yeah, these two were meant to kiss but it got cut and instead, we got the typical 3 second same gender couple that wont matter in future films.
It feels like Disney’s PR are trying to avoid the backlash here by saying that- by blaming the actors in some sense, they kinda trying to shift off the blame to them- when Disney knows that by releasing the novel, we would expect Harry X Gil in action and in order to avoid that, they cut a actual representation and gave us lame representation- a kiss is better then 3 seconds of dancing at the end.
In short, I don’t believe that excuses the homophobic move here- by removing the kiss, they denied gay kids some chance to see diversity in the film and basically think their lame ass backgrounder characters that aren’t even named are better for like, 3 seconds and blinking means you miss them- like the kiss looked like it was in middle of Whats my Name?, meaning it wasn’t taking up room and was just there.
And in short for reals this time, I don’t believe it for real and really hate Disney PR for not taking their dam blame for denying LGBT+ youth their chance at seeing their representation for longer then 3 seconds.
Also, off topic- what the heck is your icon? Cause surprise surprise, Safe Mode is censoring it for me and im kinda curious on what the icon is- since Safe Modes censoring non-NSFW a lot nowadays….
