As box office numbers lag for film companies that are known to have given in to woke culture ideologies, Disney and Sony are planning to re-release favored movies in an effort to revive revenues.

Disney will re-release its 2016 Star Wars solo film Rogue One in theaters on Aug. 26, along with Avatar, which is set to appear in theaters again on Sept. 23. Rogue One’s re-release is reported to feature a sneak peek of the Disney+ series Andor.

Spider-Man: No Way Home — The More Fun Stuff, a collaboration between Sony and Disney, is set to be re-released in theaters on Sept. 2, although ticket sales have been temporarily delayed, film critic Erik Davis announced.

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.
