has had a bit of a troubled history but the future looks bright. Once in development at Blue Sky an originally scheduled for release this year, production was halted and then canned entirely when Disney purchased the studios parent, FOX. A particularly disheartening development because the film, based on ND Stevenson's comic, features prominant LGTQ themes and characters.

Imagine going from a design consultant at a major American university to a 'Digital artist and storyteller' for "NFT, Crypto, Web3, DAO" with an Etherium address to boot. :blobfearful:

It irks me no end that have had multiple flops at this point but everyone seems to pretend that they haven't and are still untouchable, impeccable, and better than every other studio. Disney marketing at its finest.

Films have a LOT less LGBTQ characters for a number of reasons, so they tend to be rare.

ParaNorman was the first to feature an LGBTQ character AND make that clear in the film when Mitch refers to his boyfriend. It doesn't seem like much now, but considering the film came out in 2012, it was an important first that spawned more.
