Disney CEO Bob Iger positioned his company's acquisition of Fox's TV and movie businesses as a way for the company to prepare for a future in which streaming and direct-to-consumer dominate media consumption, on a conference call this morning to discuss the $52 billion deal.
As a result, Disney will acquire Fox's film division and much of its TV operations for a price of over $52 billion in stock. Disney will take over the Nat Geo network, Star TV, Fox's movie and TV studios and its stakes in both Sky and Hulu, as well as the parts of the business that focus on regional sports broadcasting.

Based on strong reviews (95% on Rotten Tomatoes), its wide distribution (4,232 theaters & 410 IMAX screens, or about 100 more theaters than The Force Awakens), and the usual fanfare/ excitement surrounding Star Wars releases, we expect Last Jedi to easily post the second biggest opening ever – a position currently held by Comcast (CMCSA)’s Jurassic World (2015) at $209MM. Loop Capital's David Miller, who saw the film on Disney's Burbank, California studio lot, called it "awesome," and has these estimates: After all of the Q&A was over, we were treated to a private screening of The Last Jedi and can safely say, without hesitation, that the film was just as good, if not better, than The Force Awakens, which opened on December 18, 2015 at $247.9mm and went on to clear $2.07B in GBO, now third on the all time list.
