Jolie against Eternals censorship in Arabia, ‘ignorant’

(ANSA) – NEW YORK, NOV 05 – ‘Ignorant’. Thus Angelina Jolie has branded the decision of Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries to censor ‘Eternals’ due to the presence of homosexual characters. The actress, who plays Thena in Marvel Comics’ latest film based on the Eternals characters, co-written and directed by ChloĆ© Zhao, has bluntly criticized the decision to block its release in theaters. The latest movie in the franchise features a homosexual superhero for the first time and also a gay kiss.

“I’m sad for that audience – said Jolie – and I’m proud of Marvel who refused to cut the film.

I still can’t understand how one can live nowadays in a world where people can’t see the beauty of that relationship. Getting angry, threatened or frowned upon is ignorant. “

It is customary in the Arab world to impose cuts on films that concern or contain sex, homosexuality and religious issues in order to adapt them to the rules of censorship, but in this case Disney did not want to give up. (HANDLE).
