Sir. Ian McKellan calls on Disney to make “The Dog and the Sailor” movie.

The Dog and the Sailor

Sir Ian McKellan Dog and Sailor Disney


Sir. 
Ian McKellen, National Treasure, LGBTQ+ activist and the revered, award-winning British actor of stage and screen known for his starring roles in 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'X-Men' films has shared the story of “The Dog and the Sailor” being discovered with his fans.

Sir Ian called on Disney to adapt the fairy tale as a movie, writing “Queer fairy stories? Well, at last, apparently. Mind you, we Brits might have suspected, brought up as we are on Christmas theatre pantomimes, with fairy tale plots and cross-dressing casts. Traditionally two women play the Prince and his bride and a bloke is the Dame. When the theatres reopen we should celebrate with a panto version of ‘The Dog and the Sailor’. Or we could leave it to Disney”.

Thanks Sir. Ian! What an honour! ❤️
