Disney will not cut the gay moment from Beauty and the Beast, after a request was made by the Film Censorship Board in Malaysia to do so.
The studio says that the movie will not be cut, but they will instead move the release date to March 30 to allow more time for the censor board to make a decision on whether or not it will allow the release of the movie without changes.
Malaysia has strict laws against homosexuality. The country's Film Censorship Board allows for LGBT characters to be depicted onscreen as long as they show "repentance."
For a time, it was reported that Russia was considering a ban of Beauty and the Beast over the gay moment, but the country's culture ministry said the film will be allowed to play but audience members under the age of 16 won't be admitted to screenings.
The Henagar Drive-In Theatre in Henagar, Ala., announced it won't screen the Disney release because it features a gay character.
Malaysia is a small international film market, and the movie is already tracking to more than $200 million worldwide.
Beauty and the Beast will hit theaters Friday in the U.S.
