'Moana' Directors Discuss Possibility of LGBTQ Disney Princess!

Disney’s hot new animated movie Moana is winning over audiences everywhere – it brought in a staggering $15.7 million at the box office on Thanksgiving eve!

The film features Disney’s first Polynesian princess, Moana (voiced by Auli’i Cravalho), whom directors Ron Clements and John Musker describe as “badass.”

“We made [Moana's] legs fuller and her hips are fuller to make her capable of these action stunts that we wanted to do, where she can dive off cliffs and those sort of things,” John told Huffington Post, adding that the flick is “pushing [Moana] into new territory.”

With all the “new territory” explored in creating this movie, the duo also discussed the possibility of featuring Disney’s first LGBTQ princess!

“It seems like the possibilities are pretty open at this point,” John added. “It would be driven by a director or a directorial team that really wanted to push that and if [Disney Animation's Chief Creative Officer] John Lasseter liked the idea, but I would say we haven’t ever really [had] restrictions placed on what we’ve done.”

    1 yr ago I finally quit my office job and that decision changed everything for me… I started to work online, for this company I discovered online, several hrs /a day, and I profit now much more than i did on my previous job… My last month check was for 9 thousand dollars… The best thing about this work is that now i have more free time with my kids…

    Don’t you think a more important message would be of basic morals for children? Sex is adults. We have laws against child sex. We don’t need to confuse our children.

    What does that have to do with an lgbt princess?

  • Plat

    People aren’t angry just cause there isn’t an lgbt character in any movie. But it would be nice to have more representation in animation. There isn’t really any at all.

  • Jessica Neema

    Representation is a lie LGBT made up to demand more people support them. You can find LGBT animation when you look..

  • Jessica Neema

    Because the LGBT are full of sex deviants, want to see Folsom..then talk.

  • Plat

    Yea….in underground or independent films. Hidden away and unseen as always.

  • Jessica Neema

    No, open to people who want to watch them..I don’t see why I have to stomach LGBT in my shows just so you could feel better.

  • Plat

    You are seriously a selfish asshole. I’m sorry you have to “stomach” people who aren’t a carbon copy of you. Oh shit…there are other lifestyles than yours. It’s horrible I know.

  • Jessica Neema

    You are a self absorbed dumbass. Yes, it is trying, because most people I know don’t want to see freaks. Yes, weirdos and dimwits and sick mental cases and it is oh so disgusting. Next you will be telling me that zoosexuals need to be on tv
