The two woke movies from last year, released by Walt Disney Studios, “Strange World” and “Lightyear,” were the biggest box office failures because of which Disney lost over a quarter of a billion dollars.
“Strange World” is being considered the biggest flop of last year as it cost the entertainment company around $200 million loss.

Moreover, when compared to other Disney animated movies, “Strange World” received the worst audience score with just a “B” rating.
The animated movie was made on a budget of $317.4 million, however it only managed to earn $73.6 million.
The animated movie “Lightyear” also tanked because of a $106 million loss at the box office.
Both of these animated films followed a common theme as they both featured woke ideology and agenda, which is why they failed badly at the box office.
“Strange World” showcases a story about a family of explorers who must travel through subterranean, treacherous land to save their society.
Along with a good story, the animated film also featured renowned celebrities like Dennis Quaid, Gabrielle Union, and Jake Gyllenhaal.
However, Disney pushed the woke agenda in the film by introducing a homosexual character in the animated film.
The animated film’s 14-year old openly gay character, at one point in the film, can also be seen talking to his grandfather about the same-sex crush he has on one of his classmates.
On the other hand, “Lightyear” also featured a stellar cast, but Disney’s woke ideology took center stage after the film included a same-sex kissing scene. Initially, the scene was cut from the film but later on it was reinstated before the release of the film.
While talking about the critical and financial failures of “Lightyear” The COO of Pixar, Pet Docter, noted:
“We’ve done a lot of soul-searching about that because we all love the movie. We love the characters and the premise. I think probably what we’ve ended on in terms of what went wrong is that we asked too much of the audience. When they hear Buzz, they’re like, ‘Great, where’s Mr. Potato Head and Woody and Rex?’ And then we drop them into this science fiction film that they’re like, ‘What?’”
Christian Toto, a renowned film critic, also expressed his opinion regarding the two colossal failures by Disney.
“Hollywood doesn’t fully grasp the ‘go woke, go broke’ mantra, but some executives are getting the message. We’ve seen woke regrets at Netflix and Warner Bros .… Disney may soon realize that woke isn’t a money-making position. We have decades of wonderful, woke-free content for parents to consider,” Toto said.
