Disney doesn’t seem to have caught on that the relatively low box office attendance at its movie Lightyear could have something to do with the gay kiss scene in the movie. One clue might have been the 14 countries that banned the movie. Disney must have had some idea the gay kiss wouldn’t go over well with parents in the United States either, since they initially removed the scene, but then added it back after their dispute with Governor DeSantis in Florida.
Disney hasn’t given up on its effort to force woke-ism on America’s families, however. They are currently working on an animated project called Strange World that will include a gay teen romance, reports Red State.
Dennis Quaid, Lucy Liu, Gabrielle Union, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jaboukie Young-White do the voices of the characters in the movie, reports Variety. Disney screened three sequences from Strange World at the 2022 Annecy International Animation Film Festival. The first one alludes to the gay teen romance, “as Ethan flirts with heartthrob Diazo while friends from school look on, teasing in a friendly and warm-hearted way. Much to Ethan’s chagrin, his dad Searcher soon joins in, embarrassing his son with an overeager show of acceptance.” The Daily News calls the scene a “refreshing nod to inclusivity.”
One Twitter user agrees that Disney hasn’t learned yet and says “I hope it tanks BAD!”
The film is scheduled to open on November 23rd, right when families are gathering for Thanksgiving.
Disney seems determined to force parents to raise woke kids. The problem is that not all parents are ready to introduce their young children to issues of sexuality. And they shouldn’t have to. Should young children be exposed to these issues?
