On Wednesday, The Walt Disney Company’s newest animated film “Strange World” flopped at the box office after many suspect the overly “woke” nature of the film led to its drop in viewership.
Strange World which features an openly gay teen relationship is expected to be one of the biggest flops in the company’s history. After a $180 million budget, the movie sold just $4.2 million on opening day.
“That’s a terrible result for the $180 million-budgeted animated adventure. For comparison sake, ‘Encanto,’ another recent Disney animated offering, earned $40.3 million over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2021 — and that was considered to be a soft result for the family film,” Variety explained.

“To compare, Disney’s musical fantasy ‘Encanto’ collected $40.3 million over the extended holiday frame in 2021. And box office watchers were kinder when it came to assessing those ticket sales because, at the time, young kids were still getting vaccinated for the first time,” Variety continued.
The movie had a star-studded voice actor lineup that included actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, Gabrielle Union, Lucy Liu, and Dennis Quaid.
Deadline reported that the Disney company was forced not to release the animated movie in more than 20 countries “where its LGBTQ+ content would have very likely forced demands for edits.”
As for critical acclaim, the film again falls short, earning just a 41% from google reviews and ratings like 5.7/10 from IMDB.
Just this week, Disney CEO Bob Chapek was fired from his post in a shocking move. The former CEO of the company just 2 years ago, Bob Iger, came out of retirement to be his replacement.
Chapek was recently asked in an interview with the Wall Street Journal if he believes the company is too woke. The head of the company at the time dodged the question and said this has been going on forever.
“I think Disney is a company that has survived for 100 years by catering to its audience and it’s going to thrive the next 100 years by catering to its audience,” Chapek said.
