Backlash over Disney’s woke agenda blamed as ‘Lightyear’ fizzles at box office
Valerie Richardson, The Washington Times
Hollywood was stunned when the can’t-miss blockbuster “Lightyear” sputtered in its opening
weekend at the box office, but not conservatives, who blamed the animated film’s failure to launch on Disney’s ongoing lurch to the left. The Disney-Pixar feature failed to dislodge Universal’s “Jurassic World: Dominion” from the No. 1 box office slot after grossing $51 million in its debut, well below projections for the Toy Story spinoff.
