If you haven’t figured it out by now, Disney has got this whole ‘woke’ and backing liberal agenda items down pat. And as a result, pretty much everything they touch goes down in flames.
Take their more recent Disney Plus series, “National Treasure: Edge of History,” for example.
If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a reboot series coming from the very popular “National Treasure” movies starring Nicholas Cage that came out in the 2000s.
The films followed the story of Benjamin Gates, a treasure hunter hell-bent on restoring the good name of his family by discovering a treasure leading all the way back to some of the United States’ most historically important moments, such as the Revolutionary War, as well as the Civil War and the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.
To say the films are dripping with patriotism is a complete understatement.
However, its more recent offshoot is far from similar.
Sure, it involves a supposedly massive treasure that goes back hundreds of years and involves some of America’s more famous historical figures, including Lewis and Clark, Sacajawea, and Elvis Presley.
But it also places an illegal alien, afraid of police and authority, at the story’s center.
The storyline follows Jess, a DREAMer, on a quest to find answers about her family and long-lost treasure. And true to Disney’s recent woke agenda, it includes scenes raging against capitalism, white society, and law enforcement.
Of course, the show has already been officially canceled after only one measly season, according to Outkick.
As it turns out, no one really wants to watch shows or films that constantly throw American heroes or ideals out the window, especially in favor of talking points that go directly against what most of us believe.
You would have thought that Disney would have learned its lesson after animated productions like “Strange World” and “Lightyear” also flopped in recent years. But this is Disney, which has taken a hard left turn from where its founder Walt Disney imagined it.
