‘Beauty and the Beast’ pulled from theaters in Kuwait by censors

Days after “Beauty and the Beast” non-stop in Kuwait, censors pulled the Disney reconstitute from theaters.

The live-action film, starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the eponymous beast, has faced critique for what executive Bill Condon called an “exclusively happy moment” with LeFou, played by Josh Gad.

People in Kuwait with tickets to see the film Monday perceived messages from the National Cimena Company that the screenings had been canceled for “unforeseen difficulties.”

In the strange 1991 Beauty and the Beast film, Belle was uttered by thespian and singer Paige O'Hara. In the 2017 live-action low-pitched remake, Emma Watson portrays the lead character.

They were betrothed full refunds for their canceled tickets.
