Looking back at Bob Iger’s Disney

Looking back at Bob Iger’s Disney

The man behind Disney’s meteoric rise over the past decade stepped down from the throne at the end of February. Disney was massive long before, but in his 15 years at the helm, former CEO Bob Iger, 69, brought the House of Mouse to astronomical heights. He was behind key acquisitions that helped Disney to increase its annual revenue by over 200% since he took over in 2005. Few industry leaders have made quite a mark as Iger, and his successor (conveniently, another Bob), Disney parks chairman Bob Chapek, has big shoes to fill. Read on as we outline his success, what brought him there, and what lies ahead for the world’s most unstoppable movie studio.

Disney has successfully eclipsed Comcast in its bid to acquire most of Fox's assets with approval from the Department of Justice.

Disney-Fox deal prompts antitrust criticism

Disney-Fox deal prompts antitrust criticism

Big news was made last week when it was announced that Disney plans to buy almost all of 21st Century Fox for a whopping $54 billion. While it's interesting to think of iconic properties like The Simpsons joining Star Wars in House of Mouse, and Marvel fans are likely excited at the potential for the X-Men and Deadpool to finally join the MCU, the deal is yet another example of a single monolithic company gaining more control over an industry.
