Disney suffered major box-office losses after its Lightyear movie brought in a disappointing $51 million over the opening weekend.
The entertainment company’s most recent earnings report indicated its domestic market significantly slowed down from 1.5 million new subscribers to only 100,000 new subscriptions between its fiscal second and third quarters. While total subscriptions for Disney+ increased from 87.6 million to 93.6 million in the third quarter, the majority came from international users.
The slowdown occurred as Disney stood in staunch opposition to Florida’s Parent Rights in Education Act, which critics dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
In contrast, Top Gun: Maverick, a film dominated by military themes and filled with nods to patriotism, dominated the 2022 box office with $1.4 billion in worldwide revenue and $674 million in the United States, according to Box Office Mojo.
