These fervent fans are emphasizing their concerns about the film’s alleged concentration on progressive themes by using #Gowokegobroke. The phrase captures the idea that the movie’s treatment of certain social concerns may have unfavorable effects, mirroring more general arguments about how to strike a balance between creative expression and audience preferences.

Some critics have even declared Pixar’s doom amid ongoing arguments regarding the company’s destiny, citing its most recent release, Elemental, as proof of more serious issues. This feeling stems from the idea that the progressive principles present in the movie such as “Woke,” “ESG,” “CEI,” and “DEI” have obscured the importance of compelling storytelling. In this perspective, the fundamental principles of family-friendly entertainment seem to have changed, which raises concerns about whether Disney’s dedication to family-friendliness is still strong. Despite all this animosity, the film managed to secure a spot among the year’s highest-grossing films.
