Didn't Covenant already give us LGBT characters?  Did anyone smoke in it that wasn't either on fire or burned by acid?

Yeah Lope and Hallett were a gay couple.  And Ridley has mentioned that sex between crew members isn't necessarily hetero.  Outside the movies there's Jill and Chris in Fire & Stone and Olivia in Echo off the top of my head. Blue in Cold Forge swung a couple of ways from memory.  And Ray in Prototype was a trans man.

Just to expand and speculate about Bob Chapek "smoking" and "lgb+" policy seemingly being an early indication of Disney's creative direction.

Smoking. This comment comes from "the sound of the south" being refused entry into Disney+ in part due to "racial overtones" and Bob Chapek stating he will pay attention to censorship of adult themes while seemingly aiming for PG-13 or lower. To me he sounds like a PG-13 or nothing and what counts as PG-13 before won't fly now, and that's even before consideration from the M.P.A.A. rating system.

Anyway you have to remember that Disney only bought 20th Century Fox to get distribution rights on Star Wars, while at the same time buying Lucas Film from George Lucas. And that, as well all know, is PG-13 or lower.
Not to mention the media tries to paint "anti-woke culture" critics as a fringe minority in their non-acceptance of lgb+ in light of Star Wars box office returns. I'd argue its moreso the intellectual property- rather than social politics- responsbile for Star Wars success.

Disney's been anti-smoking in films for a long time, this isn't really new or surprising.

It doesn't sound like he's saying everything's going to be PG-13, just that PG-13 and under material won't have smoking. Disney has always appreciated there's an adult market and have always owned subsidiaries to cater to it.

Song of the South has been a difficult subject for Disney since it was released 70 odd years ago.
