Disney - From Woke to Broke?

"Go woke, go broke", people say, and the latest disaster for entertainer-turned-indoctrinator Disney proves the point yet again. Disney's latest pro-LGBT offering has bombed at the box office, despite rolling out during the normally lucrative Thanksgiving weekend.

Disney's “Strange World” is a sci-fi movie that includes “a subplot where a homosexual 16-year-old boy named Ethan is ‘navigating’ a crush on another boy.” 

The good news is that the film is expected to lose the company $100 million according to entertainment publication Variety.

The magazine reported:

The animated feature debuted dramatically behind expectations with $11.9 million from 4,174 North American theaters over the weekend and $18.6 million over the five-day holiday frame. Before projections were revised downward, the movie was expected to earn $30 million to $40 million between Wednesday and Sunday — and even those figures would have been unspectacular to start.

The movie comes months after Disney executives boasted about leaning into pro-LGBT content and engaged in a high-profile battle with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over his state’s anti-grooming law.

Cultural commentators were quick to point out that the flop could be linked to the movie’s woke agenda. The bottom line is that the revolting child-molesting film brought in less than $24 million over the critical five days following its release - against its $180 million budget.

Even those who watched it didn't like what they saw. Strange World has received the worst Audience Score in Disney animation history.
