Valliant Renegade, a box office expert, says that the Walt Disney Company is in a big financial mess because they have lost more than a billion dollars on their last eight movies. Some of the movies that have caused this huge loss are the new version of "The Little Mermaid" and "Elemental" from Pixar. Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania have all failed to bring in enough money for the company. Also, two movies, including Strange World and Lightyear, were complete box office flops.

Disney's Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is expected to do poorly at the box office, making only $60–$70 million in its first weekend. Analysts say that this amount will not be enough for a company like Disney.
Valiant Renegade points out that the company could lose more than $1 billion if these titles are only available on Disney+ and not on famous streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. The box office analyst says that Disney needs to make creative and marketing choices that suit their audience if they want to stay in business.
People don't really like Disney's movies because the company has tried to include leftist ideas in its programs. It was thought that Lightyear would make $135 million, but it only made $85.6 million around the world. The movie, which was made for kids, got bad reviews from fans and parents around the world because it had a kissing scene between two people of the same gender. The movie didn't do well at the box office because the company insisted on pushing their liberal message.
The movie Elemental has a lot of silly leftist themes, and audiences have been very critical of it because of its constant focus on "xenophobia" and racism, as well as its "nonbinary" character. The movie was again controversial, and Disney's goals were all over the place, which hurt sales. When it came out, it only made $29.5 million in the U.S. and $48 million worldwide.
Disney needs to understand that people no longer care about their tired political views in their entertainment and want to go back to a time when their nostalgia could run free. Disney needs to learn to put the entertainment of their audiences ahead of their political goals. If they don't, they will end up killing themselves and their owners.
