Disney’s first woke feature-length cartoon with ‘queer teen lead’ bombs at box office open

Moviegoers have sent a message to Disney by choosing to pass on the “woke” entertainment colossus’s latest feature-length serving of far-left propaganda, “Strange World” which bombed at the box office this week, a sign that parents aren’t willing to subject their families to gay, green garbage on the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

The disappointing early returns on the costly adventure that has drawn raves from leftists for its history-making first openly gay teen character are a strong indication that the company’s choice to embrace cultural indoctrination instead of the traditional family values that the company was once known for has been nothing short of disastrous.

According to Deadline, the movie which hit theatres on Wednesday has seen a dismal return on its reported $135M investment, managing only $4.2M on its first day despite playing in 4,174 theaters and is on the way to a “disastrous 3-and 5-day of $15.8M and $20M-$23M” take.

“Strange World boasts not only a queer teen lead, voiced by IRL queer comedy icon Jaboukie Young-White, but that queer teen is also biracial. Between the explicit queerness and the interracial family at its center, Strange World is shockingly progressive—well, as far as Hollywood family films go,” according to the Daily Beast, which is already whining about the movie’s lackluster reception.

“That the film centers an interracial couple (dad Searcher, voiced by Jake Gyllenhaal, and mom Meridian, voiced by Gabrielle Union) and their queer son, Ethan (Young-White), should feel less exciting than it is; by real-world standards, this could be a regular-degular American family,” writes Daily Beast deputy entertainment editor Allegra Frank, who accuses Disney of burying its own movie.

“But capitalism is not the real world, just a lesion upon society’s brain, and one influenced by the myopic end of the sociopolitical spectrum. Which is why under the Hollywood system, Strange World counts as spectacularly diverse. Critics seeking to uphold the outdated status quo of white, cisgender heteronormativity can’t help but remark upon any semblance of diversity,” she continues. “Thus, it’s easier for Disney to shy away from Strange World’s makeup than point at it. Gotta love the influence of investors on the creative process!”

While many biased leftists blame bigotry for Disney’s epic stink bomb, many on Twitter were quick to point out that the real culprit was the lack of widespread public appeal outside of certain demographics that are vastly overrepresented in the entertainment industry.


With public awareness – and revulsion – growing over the epidemic of the sexualizing of children, few have been harder hit than Disney, a once golden brand that for decades put out high quality, family-friendly entertainment but recently took a turn to increasingly promoting homosexual and transgender propaganda to the point where its product is now tainted by an association with groomers, an image that wasn’t helped when the company chose to pick a public fight with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over the state’s new parental rights bill.

Tanking shares have led to big changes at the Mouse House with CEO Bob Chapek being ousted as the company brought back Bob Iger in an effort to correct the company’s downward trajectory, although it may be too little too late. Movies like “Strange World” certainly aren’t much help with changing the perception of customers who have been alienated.

While “Strange World” is box office poison, another “woke” Disney flick is doing big business as Marvel’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the sequel to 2o18’s smash hit “Black Panther” about the mythical, technologically advanced African black ethnostate, is raking in the dough.

“Wakanda Forever” opened with a 10M initial day take and is headed for a 5-day holiday weekend total of $55M-$60M with a projected total of $363.7M, according to Deadline.
