We have heard rumblings of talks between Disney and 21st Century Fox happening recently.
Discussion about the potential acquisition of some 21st Century Fox assets by Disney had gone quiet. The assets in question include the film studio as well as areas of their television division. As I said, talks had somewhat cooled off but things have started to heat up again.

Talks Between Disney And 21st Century Fox Have Resumed

A report by CNBC asserts that talks between the two studios have begun again. More importantly, a deal between Disney and 21st Century Fox is actually nearing completion. The deal could be done by next week and the assets that could be sold to Disney are valued at a staggering $60 billion.

Clearly, if this happens, it will be a momentous event in film history that will have a severe impact on the film industry. By far, it surpasses the deal Disney made with George Lucas to buy Lucasfilm for $4 billion. Disney would acquire 21st Century Fox’s entire film and television production assets while Fox would keep its news (sure, “news”), sports and broadcast network.

The Impact Of This Deal

Obviously, the specifics of this deal are still unclear to us and likely still undecided between Disney and 21st Century Fox. With this in mind, I feel as though I and my fellow film fans should not be too judgemental about how this deal could negatively or positively affect the film industry. Still, I think it is safe to say that if the deal goes ahead, some restructuring within the Fox assets that Disney acquires will occur.
