After Pixar slammed parent company Disney for allegedly censoring gay content, a same-sex kiss has reportedly been restored to the studio's Buzz Lightyear movie.

According to Variety, Lightyear, the upcoming Toy Story spinoff film from Disney and Pixar, will feature a female character in a relationship with another woman. The report says a kiss between the characters had been cut out of the film but was restored last week amid backlash over Disney's response to Florida's "Don't Say Gay" bill.
