Default Disney just bought 21st Century Fox for 71 billion dollars

Disney Fox Acquisition Solidified With $71.4 Billion Deal

Quote:
The Walt Disney Company today announced that it has signed an amended acquisition agreement with 21st Century Fox for $71.3 Billion ($38 per share in cash and stock). Disney will acquire 21st Century Fox immediately following the spin-off of the businesses comprising “New Fox” as previously announced. This news comes after Comcast made an aggressive $65 billion all-cash offer last week for the 21st Century Fox assets, forcing Disney to increase its initial $52.4 billion purchase for the Fox acquisition.

For movie fans, as of now this means that presumed plans to reintegrate characters like Fantastic Four and X-Men (including Deadpool) into Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe remain intact, as does the total acquisition of Fox’s distribution rights to the original 1977 Star Wars for Lucasfilm. Disney will also now control the rights to such current Fox cinematic franchises as Avatar, Planet of the Apes, Alien, Predator, Die Hard, Kingsman, Ice Age and Night at the Museum. On the TV side some titles they will control include The Simpsons, Family Guy, Legion, American Horror Story, The Orville, NBC’s This Is Us and ABC’s Modern Family. In 2017, Disney’s Buena Vista held a dominant 21.8% of the movie market share, while 20th Century Fox held 12%

They should do another combo Aliens movie, like they did with Alien vs Predator, except make it Alien vs Chewbacca.

Don't forget to add a cute little xeno that can sell toys in all of these new movies, too.

Star wars and Xmen/F4 most likely make the deal worth it IMO. Disney now controls all of Star Wars starting ASAP and can now use all of its marvel characters.

Its too bad they focused on Civil War and Age of Ultron already in the MCU. Wolverine and Invisible Woman were the main characters that helped fix that.

This could also finally give us an original despecialized 1080P/4K SW trilogy.
