Woke ‘Lightyear’ Falls Far Short of Expectations

Disney’s latest addition to its growing catalog of homosexuality aimed at children, “Lightyear,” severely underperformed on opening weekend. Projected to take in as much as $85 million domestically, the film managed only $51 million over its three-day debut.

The last two films in the classic series raked in over $110 million in each of their domestic openings, but neither featured a gay kiss directly aimed at children.

At some point the industry shot callers will wake up and admit what’s really going on, both on their end and with parents’ response.

The kiss between two female characters was initially removed from the film. That, however, was before the confrontation between Disney and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Employees of the family entertainment company threw a fit over a state law banning teaching sexual orientation and gender identity to kids as young as four. An action many refer to as grooming.

These offended employees shrilly complained of being thwarted for years in their efforts to incorporate gay themes into children’s entertainment. My, how times have changed.

Faster than you can say “box office bomb,” Disney executives relented and are now fully onboard with radical leftists aiming their indoctrination at the youngest audiences.

Of course, Disney already made a switch from the iconic voice of Buzz Lightyear, Tim Allen. The comedian was dumped for what many speculate was his support for former president Donald Trump. This includes the horror of his attendance at Trump’s 2017 inauguration.

Possibly for sins such as telling Jimmy Kimmel that current Hollywood culture resembles 1930s Germany, he was replaced by uber-woke Chris Evans. The “Captain America” star recently called critics of his new film’s lesbian kiss “idiots.”

He even admits that the goal is to reach the point where “it is the norm.”

It is amusing to check out reasons the entertainment industry rolls out for “Lightyear” badly underperforming. Over Father’s Day, of all times. Much like the NFL and its sharp drop in viewership after its “awakening,” every possible excuse is dangled except the most obvious.

Parents want their kids to enjoy themselves in a safe environment where they don’t worry about indoctrination and grooming by radicals of any stripe. Disney needs to wake up to this fact, or families will continue to vote with their dollars against age inappropriate messages to small children.
