Maybe he will do something about this degenerate.



Those shorts are way too short and put a shirt on for God's sake. Think of the children.

Scandalous.

Anyway, I see so much people online so happy about it as if Iger is their personal friend. So many issues nowadays are resulted from his decisions. Sure, it probably means less focus on Disney+ content, higher quality production values, but we'll still get unnecessary remakes and sequels, they'll just look better. It'll also probably mean no hand drawn features and no LGBT representation or less of it.
Why would Iger mean less LGBTQ representation when one of the reasons behind this decision was apparently Chapek was slow to voice opposition to Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which Iger voiced earlier on, and Chapek’s move left LGBTQ employees feeling like he didn’t have their back the way Iger did. Obviously the stock hit in the last year was a big motivating factor behind this move, but beyond that it seems like less about content, and more managerial style (Iger is apparently much more diplomatic, the way Chapek criticized Scarlett Johansson over Black Widow salary was also brought up as an issue with his tenure).

I don't have an opinion either way on Chapek but the guy did start his tenure at the worst possible time.

Does anyone know where Iger and Chapek stood on home video? Did they ever discuss it as CEOs?

Why assume no LGBT at all though? Having some of that is one thing but its another when it feels at times as if the "social awakening" angle is the total driving force behind a lot of content. Balance/reason works best here, IMO.

Needless reboots and remakes are the norm now and thats not just a Disney-driven thing. I dunno, I dont see an issue with the switch. And, Disney was not doing as well as some have claimed!

I second this inquiry. To this day, I don't understand not releasing or even licensing titles out. I get the push for their streaming service, but one doesn't really have to negate the other. I own lots of movies that are on Netflix, we still have a Netflix account.

Just because you release or license a film, doesn't mean your streaming revenue is going to go down. In fact, it's almost free money at that point, let a label take the print and fix it up and release it and send you money. They release new Disney movies and some animated classics on disc, why not do more?

Really I think that a lot of Disney's sucess has basically been about not rocking the boat too much with the various proprieties they pickup, Iger unlike so many big name execs didnt seem to have the desire to micromanage creatives.

So I'm struggling with what to think about this.

On one hand, I think Iger was a great CEO for Disney in terms of weighing his successes vs. his shortcomings. He did A LOT right. Disney+ was developed under his watch, and launched, etc.

Chapek...man. As a consumer of media only, I think he did some good stuff. I LOVE Disney+. We watch it a lot in my house, but kid-friendly fare isn't the only thing I want to watch. So I LOVED that D+ was starting to incorporate more adult-themed entertainment. I don't understand why it's so hard to allow parents/households to determine what a kid can and cannot see. So I loved the parental controls incorporated. It meant my step-daughter who is only 9 didn't HAVE to have Kids Profile, but also couldn't see things like the Netflix Daredevil (or even The Beatles: Get Back) on her profile.

That's another thing--I'm a HUGE Beatles fan. Does Iger coming back mean that D+ is going to revert to what he wanted, and thus things like that get removed?


I think overall this is a good move, but for the love of god, I want Iger to realize that there's a not-insignificant number of loyal Disney fans who LOVE their traditional offerings, but also love the more grown-up/adult fare.

True - He's the one that swallowed up like every IP under the sun which was smart financially but then started pushing a lot of the content towards pushing "the agenda". Because, ya know, people havent had enough of that in their lives.

If they just got back to entertaining and left the rest out of it.

Great post dead on. There are numerous classics locked up that my self and Im sure many of you would gladly purchase in 4K. He's got to know that we do exist and will hand over money ASAP for a lot of this stuff.

Like: Aliens in 4k. Thats just one title out of dozens Id buy like day 1.

some folks in here pointing out that Iger wasn't perfect, true but look at the sorry alternative that took his place for almost two years
Also a lot of you are solely focusing on the onscreen projects, which I get because of the nature of this forum, but those of us who are park goers and retail fans have a big problem with the price hikes, value of product and microtransaction approach Chapek instituted at the parks. While some of these policies started while Iger was still in place, Iger was had a diplomatic, gentle approach of instituting and justifying them whereas Chapek did not buy you dinner first

If I remember it was commented the day Chapek took over he was keeping the seat warm for the other Bob to return, so this isn't a surprise. It was only a matter of time.

He probably should care:

"Shares of Disney sank 13.16% Wednesday — their lowest level in more than two years — after the media conglomerate’s quarterly results fell short of Wall Street expectations and the company signaled that its direct-to-streaming losses and linear TV declines for fiscal year 2023 would be higher than expected."

They have a back catalog of titles held hostage akin to the money sitting in Scrooge McDuck's Vault. Offsetting the cost of beefing up their streaming services via licenses and disc releases would only help to broaden the content on their service while also bringing in added revenue. It seems like a no brainer.

Another round for Iger? I thought he would want to retire. Usually the 2nd time doesn't last very long before they find a long-term replacement while Iger steps in as the other guy steps down. If Iger is there for more than 4 more years, I'll be surprised. If he loved it so much, why leave in the first place?

Okay, it's for 2 years to find another replacement.

I think Chapek, who stepped down, was in charge of Disney phasing out their series shows from disc media and only supporting their new shows like Obi Wan Kenobi on their D- pay channel. Not good. Unless that ball already started rolling before Iger left. Get more shows on disc format please.

Disney makes a lot of money, but they also have a lot of costs too with employees, insurance, maintenance of their parks, etc.

As far as them acquiring major entertainment companies, that's something that's happening with the video game industry too, where once big development corporations are being absorbed by Sony and Microsoft. Not good. Sometimes these extra arms are dissolved completely.
