It continues to be a very bad year for Disney. The embattled mouse has seen huge losses in stock price, dwindling attendance at their woke theme parks, and flop after flop at the box office. The streaming service has also been bleeding subscribers as the company desperately looks to unload burdens like ESPN, Hulu, and ABC.
What was once a bulletproof standard in the family entertainment industry is now nothing more than a hollow shell, constantly pushing radical ideology and woke themes on America’s children. Americans are taking note and are pushing back by ignoring content, shunning the parks, and canceling subscriptions.
The damage hasn’t been limited to theme parks parading around men in dresses, either. The company has had a string of box office failures that would shut down studios with shallower pockets. On the small screen, Disney has even managed to fail with the Marvel Universe and Star Wars.
Disney+ had but one series in the top 20 streaming titles for the year despite having numerous superhero and Star Wars spinoffs. The Simpsons has been the lone bright spot for the flailing mouse.
As the company looks to try to remain above water, they are shedding content at an alarming rate, with some titles being finished but canceled before they even air. Even reboots of beloved classic shows have been abject failures.
Of course, a network should be able to make a successful reboot of a beloved series like “Doogie Howser: MD,” but when you twist and contort the series to achieve diversity quotas and woke agendas, you are doomed to failure.
Such has been the case with the aforementioned reboot. Despite a tried-and-true formula, the network decided to remake the show under the new title, Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. It isn’t hard to see what the problem is.
The new series was set in Hawaii, and replaced the original show’s white male protagonist with a Hawaiian girl named Lahela Kamealoha. Audiences yawned all the way to cancelation. After two unremarkable seasons, the show is set to fade into obscurity as simply another failure from the radical left.
After CEO Bob Iger retook the reins at the failing streamer, he had a clear directive in mind: “We have to be better at curating the Disney, and the Pixar, and the Marvel, and the Star Wars of it all. And, of course, reduce costs on everything that we make. While we are extremely proud of what’s on the screen, it’s gotten to a point where it’s extraordinarily expensive. We want all the quality. We want the quality on the screen, but we have to look at what they cost us.”
This simply means that low-rated content will be axed, often before it even makes the screen. The rebooted “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” titled “Nautilus,” was axed after production but before it even aired. The program, which reportedly focuses on Captain Nemo’s racial identity and the impact British imperialism had on non-white populations, thankfully will never be seen.
Disney+ reported a loss of 300,000 subscribers in America alone in the last quarter. This is a clear sign that people aren’t willing to pay for the woke content Disney is pushing. Perhaps “go woke. go broke” is a tired, cliched saying, but until streamers like Disney start to produce family-friendly, entertaining content and stop with the leftist nonsense, Americans will continue spending their hard-earned dollars elsewhere.
