It's only a matter of time and circumstance before Disney movies feature homosexual characters or "families," according to one of the company's animators.

In a little-noticed story by the Australian news website News.com.au, animator Andreas Deja, who reported working on the Disney films "Beauty and the Beast," "Aladdin" and "The Lion King," said the company is open to the concept of homosexual entertainment.

"Is there ever going to be a family that has two dads or two mums? Time will tell," he said. "I think once they find the right kind of story with that kind of concept, they will do it.

"It has to be the right kind of story and you have to find that first," said Deja, according to News.com.au.

Disney, which already allows various "gay days" and other such events at its theme parks, is a "gay-friendly" company, Deja said. The report cited "Lion King" contributor Elton John as well as the late Howard Ashman, who worked on the lyrics to "The Little Mermaid."
