Woke Disney had the three biggest box office bombs in 2022, and the Mouse House was expecting all of them to be big winners.
Disney lost its shirt on both Lightyear and Strange World, despite high-powered stars and a ton of advertising.
It also wasn’t for trying on behalf of the woke, sold-out “reviewers,” either. Starnge World, for instance was hailed as a good film by reviewers and even claimed a “B” rating on CinemaScore.

Yet, it lost big money after it earned only $73.6 million despite a budget of $317.4 million, for a total loss of $197.4 million, Deadline reported.
The next biggest loser was Disney and New Regency’s Amsterdam. This film lost $108.4 million (though Disney was only its distributor).
In third place was Disney’s hoped for hit, Lightyear. This follow up to the Toy Story films lost Disney another $106 million, despite having star Chris Evans as the lead voice artist.
And what did all these movie have in common? Each of them were “gayed up,” as Breitbart News John Nolte loves to say.
Meanwhile, what was Hollywood’s biggest success story for 2022?
Yep, Top Gun: Maverick. With a budget of a mere $170 million, the film made $718,732,821 in the states and $774,759,037 internationally, for a total of $1,493,491,858 worldwide, according to
Box Office Mojo.
That is quite a return on investment, eh?
And what was the main quality of Maverick? Not a woke theme is sight.
