  • Disney 21st Century FOX Deal

The closing follows a almost two-year effort that included a bidding war and regulatory compromises from Brussels to Brasilia.

Murdoch's other company, News Corp, a prior iteration of Fox, still holds the family's cherished print news and worldwide businesses, such Sky News Australia as well as influential Wall Street Journal, New York Post and Times of London publications. Last August, executives at Burbank, California-based Disney said they'll achieve their targeted savings over two years, with the USA operations bearing the brunt early on. In other words, it will be easier to cut workers at home first.

The meeting of the two media giants now creates one of the most powerful media companies in the world, with Disney looking at billions more dollars each year in revenue.

Superhero fans have been keen for the takeover to be completed, hoping that it opens the door for some of the Marvel Comics characters owned by Fox, including Deadpool, to become a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe produced by Disney.


Ryan will serve on the board along with Murdoch, Fox's founder, and his son, Lachlan Murdoch, Fox's chairman and chief executive. Fox would meanwhile spin off their news and sports broadcast networks into the newly minted Fox Corporation. "We look forward to working with and being guided by them as we begin a new chapter, steadfastly committed to providing the best in news, sports and entertainment programming".

The merger hasn't only put question marks on the future of its content, but also on jobs at the merged company. Disney CEO Bob Iger has called the streaming service the company's "biggest priority" for 2019. Disney gets far ranging properties ranging from Fox's film studios, including "Avatar" and X-Men, to its TV productions such as "The Simpsons" and networks including National Geographic.

With the Walt Disney Company website suggesting that Disney acquired the rights to The Simpsons as part of the deal, it brings into question whether the new Fox Corp. company was able to hold on to The Simpsons as they intended.

Disney needs compelling TV shows and movies to persuade viewers to sign up and pay for yet another streaming service. A deal with Netflix expired last year, for example, and Disney has said revenue lost from licensing content will cut operating income by $150 million this year. From the outside, it seems like the Fox film studio is colliding with Disney's movie-making arm of production, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. About Disney Disney, together with its subsidiaries, is a diversified worldwide entertainment company with operations in four business segments: Media Networks; Parks, Experiences and Products; Studio Entertainment; and Direct-to-Consumer and global.
