I saw Jungle Cruise today and the gayness in it is pretty interesting. Like it’s more explicit than Disney’s usually done before in that it’s talked about more directly but not acted on in any way (even though they don’t even say any version of the word gay). It is pretty wild that the first ‘coming out’ scene in Disney in my memory anyway is to The Rock but eh.
One thing I did think was weird is that there’s a scene where a character is comically impaled on a sword (they’re immortal or some shit idk) and McGregor, the gay character says something like ‘would it help if I came behind and pushed it in a bit’ which in the context I don’t think was really meaning anything but it got a big laugh in the room like 😬😬😬
It was in a conversation where various characters were suggesting ways of getting the sword out and was a throwaway line but the laugh it got was, at best, weird.
Anyway fun family film 7/10 no discourse plz
