HOLLYWOOD DOESN'T GET IT! Critic Blasts Disney Bomb, 'They Don't Understand Go Woke, Go Broke'

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.30.22

Disney’s latest animated offering Strange World is set to lose an estimated $147 million dollars at the box office, making it one of the worst-performing Disney films in recent history. Film critic and author Christian Toto says the film bombed because: “Hollywood doesn’t fully grasp the ‘go woke, go broke’ mantra.”

Talking to Fox News Digital, he added, “In some cases, parents are avoiding content with sexual conversations. Parents are [savvier] today. They use social media and get feedback on films from their peers either online or in person.”

“Strange World” is about the explorer family the Clades. In the pic, young Ethan talks to his grandfather about his same-sex crush on another boy. Toto added that there could be multiple reasons for the film’s poor performance, but noted that discussion of sexuality in a children’s movie “certainly didn’t help the film’s box office fortunes.”

From Fox News:

The entertainment website Deadline reported on how “Strange World” made just $28 million globally over the long Thanksgiving weekend. According to Deadline, progressive politics might not have allowed Disney to simply jettison what could be a subpar movie directly to streaming: “Had ‘Strange World’ gone straight to Disney+, it would be a PR nightmare for the studio, particularly in the wake of [former Disney CEO Bob] Chapek’s Florida ‘Don’t Say Gay’ quagmire.”

In regard to the possibility of a streaming-only release, Toto, the editor of Hollywood in Toto, theorized, “It’s possible, though, that progressive forces within and outside of Disney, Inc. would have raised a stink about the film’s final destination. Those voices may be few but they are loud.”

Disney stock is down more than 40% for the year.
