Disney Got Wrecked In 2023

It has been a very bad year for Disney. Since picking a fight with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over the ParentaI Rights Bill, conservatives have taken the company to task and effectively boycotted the company’s movies, theme parks, and streaming content.

For folks who believe boycotts don’t work, they only need to look at Disney. The company has seen decades low stock prices, cratering attendance at their parks, and a string of box office flops that would bankrupt companies with shallower pockets.

UnfortunateIy, the company only has itself to blame. Instead of focusing on the wholesome family entertainment that Disney was built on, they have pushed leftist narratives, political agendas, and woke offerings that the box office numbers prove no one wants to see. As 2023 ends, Disney is looking at a historic string of failures.

This year marked the Mouse’s 100th anniversary, but there is no celebration for the reeling corporation. The list of box office faiIures is impressive. Disney ruined “The Little Mermaid,” brought a merciful end to Indiana Jones, and pumped out yet another failed reboot with “The Haunted Mansion.” All of the films failed miserably, proving audiences are basically tired of recycled material.

Even the new offerings from Disney failed to bring fans to the Cineplex. “Elemental,” “Wish,” “The Marvels,” “Strange World,” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantemania” failed to create a buzz with moviegoers. All were considered financial disasters, both domestically and overseas.

The reasons are varied; whether it be tired material, a lack of star power, or woke themes that made parents uncomfortable, it was clear in 2023 that Disney would have to go back to the drawing board if 2024 was going to be any better.
