Can Bob Iger revive Disney? | FT Film

For 15 years Bob Iger was the ‘King of Hollywood’, transforming Disney with the game-changing acquisitions of Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm. His successor Bob Chapek’s disastrous tenure lasted just two years and now Iger is back for a second reign as CEO, confronted by a new landscape: Disney’s legacy businesses are in decline, its streaming services are losing money and its share price has slumped. Can the king revive the Magic Kingdom?
