There Is a Coming Out Scene in Disney's Upcoming 'Jungle Cruise' Movie!

WARNING: Spoilers ahead!

Disney is including an important moment of inclusiveness in their upcoming Jungle Cruise movie!

The movie, which is due out in 2020, had a test screening earlier in the month and attendees reported that there is a coming out scene, according to TMZ.

The scene features Jack Whitehall‘s character, McGregor, coming out to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s character, Frank.

During the scene, McGregor has a heart-to-heart with Frank about his dating history, and McGregor “makes it very clear he isn’t into ladies.”

He then explains that his family had tried arranging marriages for him with several women, but he didn’t wanna marry them – or any women. He also says Emily Blunt‘s character, Lily (his sister in the movie), was the only one in his family to accept him and support him regardless of who he loves.

Despite the gesture of representation, attendees also reported that the scene noticeably does not include a mention of the word “gay,” or the pronoun of McGregor’s love interest.
