“Lightyear” (Disney)

This is a scene from the animated movie "Lightyear." The Catholic News Service classification is A-III -- adults. (CNS/Disney, Pixar)

The beloved astronaut (voice of Chris Evans) from the “Toy Story” franchise gets the backstory treatment in this gloomy animated adventure, directed by Angus MacLane. Stranded on an alien planet, he is determined to help his crew escape by testing a new rocket fuel. When a fleet of robots invades, led by an evil emperor (voice of James Brolin), our hero assembles a motley crew (voices of Keke Palmer, Taika Waititi and Darby Steel) and a robotic cat (voice of Peter Sohn) and plans an attack.

What should be wholesome entertainment for the entire family is marred by the inclusion of a character (voice of Uzo Aduba) in a same-sex marriage.

Cartoonish action sequences, a same-sex kiss and a benign view of same-sex marriage. The Catholic News Service classification is A-III — adults. The Motion Picture Association rating is PG — parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
