Default DISNEY has bought 21st Century Fox

Rupert Murdoch has agreed to sell $66bn (£49bn) worth of 21st Century Fox’s assets, including a Hollywood film studio and 39% stake in Sky, in a deal that transforms his media empire.

The takeover involves the 86-year-old tycoon and his family taking a 4.25% stake in Disney, which gains control of Fox assets including Avatar, X-Men, The Simpsons and Modern Family as well as the FX and National Geographic businesses.
For more details, here is the article.

It's kind of becoming scary how much Disney owns...

(please don't reboot Deadpool)

Does Avatar actually belong to Fox? I always assumed Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment had ownership of it. It's in the official press release, so I guess not...

• Do we get the fanfare before Star Wars films now?
• Are Xenomorphs Disney Princesses?
• Will the X-Men get a proper Marvel Universe thing going?
• Will Hugh Jackman cameo as Wolverine in an Avengers film?

Most of all, I think that they worked really hard at this to get a TON of Marvel's stuff back under one roof, and also to get enough properties, such that them launching their own streaming service was a viable move, and it DEFINITELY is now.

I hope so
Bugs me they didn't even get John Williams to at least compose an original Lucasfilm fanfare to lead into the Star Wars movies as a replacement or something...

• Are Xenomorphs Disney Princesses?


• Will the X-Men get a proper Marvel Universe thing going?
The answer is



• Will Hugh Jackman cameo as Wolverine in an Avengers film?
From Jackman himself:
"It’s interesting because for the whole 17 years I kept thinking that would be so great, like I would love to see, particularly, Iron Man and the Hulk and Wolverine together. And every time I saw an Avengers movie I could just see Wolverine in the middle of all of them like punching them all on the head. But it was like, “Oh well, that’s not gonna happen,” and it was interesting just when I first saw that headline — it was just the possibility of it and who knows what’s gonna happen, obviously — I was like, “Hang on!” But I think, unfortunately, the ship has sailed for me, but for someone else I would like to see Wolverine in there."

Disney has purchased odd things in the past. Mirmiax/Dimensions for example. Yes, that actually means that Hellraiser and Children of the Corn were indeed at one point Disney IP's. They have a lot of subsidiaries, ranging from Buena Vista to Touchstone, and they're careful with how they integrate brands.

So the only real major thing that I see here is now they can make their own X-men films in line with the Marvel Universe if they choose. Anything else will still probably still have the Fox logo attached. They OWN that name now, and that name has power. People associate with it, and Disney will keep that integrity intact.

Wow... that's a lot of content controlled by one company. I'm kind of nervous.

A lot of studios are likely to be squeezed out if this turns into a three way war between the ruthless few still standing.
