Last week, Disney’s new boss, Bob Iger, claimed that the company was pulling back on its woke agenda. This week we find that his claims were lies and Disney is pledging to continue its move to “queer” its movies and TV shows.
Iger told a gathering of Disney employees that he intended to “adopt a different posture than his processor” on the wokeness that Disney had been indulging for the last decade.
However, it appears he was just blowing smoke. Disney isn’t changing course.
And Disney’s actions are still 100% queer ideology. There may have been a changing of the guards at the top of the company, but Disney simply replaced the guy who inherited an ideological mess with the one who created it in the first place. Ed wrote about the leadership shift and why it didn’t mean what many on the right thought it did about a return to family-friendly content.
Evidence that Disney is going full speed ahead in their quest to “queer” their content is on display with the release of their new young adult fantasy series “Willow,” a streaming series remake of an 80’s era YA movie.
In an interview with Polygon, an online magazine, producer Jonathan Kasdan explains how pleased he is to take the next step of bringing queer content to Disney’s predominantly young audience.
Of course they are.
Disney has been losing money like crazy, of course. They need to lose a LOT more before they’ll finally start pulling back.Commentary
