Disney made no comments concerning the claim by Kuwait’s National Cinema Company, but those who had bought tickets to see the film on Monday were told their tickets were cancelled due to “unforeseen circumstances”. Duaij Al-Khalifa Al-Sabah, as the representative of NCC confirmed that only an edited version is going to be shown in the country. He confirmed that the “concerns” leading to the cancellation of the screenings centred around the “gay moment”.
