Moana did not make $100 million this past weekend.
Moana did not make $100 million in the U.S. or with worldwide profits as the articles expected. Make this movie a grand success. Let it beat frozen or at least come close.People probably don’t know this but after the surprise success of Frozen, they hurried the production of Moana to this year instead of it original expected release of 2017/2018. The budget on this movie $150 million. That means for it to make a profit, it needs to make 500 million. The movie has rave reviews and $99.3 million worldwide is no joke(it’s amazing!) but, let’s make this one of the best things that happened in this abysmal year of 2016. Get your family and friends who are on the fence about seeing it in the theaters this coming weekend. Hell, go see it twice. If it hasn’t been released in your country yet and you watch it ahead of the release, still go see it when it’s released in theaters. IF you can afford to see don't doddle about seeing. The POC Disney movies don’t fare well most of the time(Princess and the Frog, Pocahontas, Mulan, Atlantis, Brother Bear, etc.) in comparison to their white counter parts.
I’m not trying to scare people, I just really want this movie to make billion. Do you realize how big it would be for a POC Disney princess to make a billion? Hell, even $600 million? None of the POC princess movies have even made that much yet.
I was a very quiet, shy child. I grew up in a small town, Louisville, Kentucky, and there weren’t too many Hawaiian-Filipino girls, so I stuck out like a sore thumb. I didn’t look like everyone else and didn’t feel I belonged. But these things only build character and make you stronger. It taught me to grow into the woman I was to become.
