Raya and the Last Dragon | March 5, 2021 | Premier Access/Theater simultaneous release in Box Office Discussion Posted March 5 · Edited March 5 by Cynosure 12 minutes ago, MCKillswitch123 said: I mean, in a world where Black Panther made 1.3 billion worldwide, it sure as Hell wouldn't hurt to try. Who cares if it flops, representation is needed, period. If the rumors are true that Disney sabotaged Raya because they thought SE Asians wouldn't show up, then they go fuck themselves (for that and a million other reasons). It's interesting to compare Avengers AOU and Black Panther which both grossed very similar numbers worldwide : Black Panther : $700.1 million DOM, $646.9 million OS. AOU : $459 million DOM, $943.8 million OS. And that's despite a much better critical reception for the former, which unfortunately kind of proves my point. I agree about representation obviously, my post is precisely criticizing the fact that people all over the world, even subconsciously, see themselves in white people and "white stories" but not in black, asian or hispanic stories and people. For instance I don't think you'll ever see a non-Japanese or non-white movie pull a Frozen in Japan.
