What CBN News Long considered the go-to place for family entertainment, recent moves and statements by the Walt Disney Company signal a shift toward a cultural agenda that threatens that legacy and possibly its future.

“I grew up with the wonderful world of Disney on Sunday nights and you curl up in a blanket with your family and watch a great Disney movie, and that company is gone,” Adam Holz, director of Focus on the Family’s Plugged In, told told CBN News in June

In April, amid controversy centering on Florida’s parental rights in education law, Disney CEO Bob Chapek promised during an internal summit to be “a better ally for the LGBTQ+ community.” And Karey Burke, Disney’s president of general entertainment, said she would like to see “lots, lots, lots of LGBTQIA characters” in Disney movies and series.

The company apparently followed through on that promise. Disney-Pixar movie, Light-yearreleased in June, it featured a lesbian couple and Thor: Love and Thunderreleased in July, it had a major LGBTQ lead character.

Holz argues that Disney is losing touch with a large part of its traditional audience in an effort to stay culturally relevant.

“There are parents who say, ‘Wait a minute, why do we have to import a sexual message into children’s programming?’ So even if we talk beyond this specific LGBT agenda, I think there is a concern that why does everything have to be sexualized, is it possible to have entertainment that is innocent, that leaves that for later and doesn’t include that at all? what we do? doing,” Holz questioned.

Parents should be more intentional with entertainment and talking to their children

according to a National survey of the Trafalgar GroupNearly 70 percent of American voters say they are less likely to do business with Disney because of its push to expose young children to sexually aroused ideas.

“Disney was absolutely synonymous with trust. There are so many other things out there, but Disney was fine. And now, this is just another entertainment provider and we don’t trust them. And we don’t want that agenda to be necessarily preached to our kids.” Holz explained.

This has led to calls to boycott or cancel Disney, and while some families choose to cut the cord, Holz said, ultimately this is an opportunity for people to be more intentional with their entertainment.

Other streaming services that are becoming popular alternatives for parents include Pure Flix, Minno, and DW Kids. Another option is to stick with the classics.

“I think an interesting alternative is to turn the clock back a few years. I don’t know about you. We have a cabinet full of DVD and Blu-ray movies,” Holz said.

He shared some key advice for parents navigating the ever-changing world of entertainment: Talk to your kids. Conversations about the content they are watching and the ideas coming to them can help teach critical thinking and ultimately shape their worldview, rather than letting the Hollywood agenda do it for them.
