We may be reading and watching content from Galaxy’s Edge, Disney’s largest ever park expansion, but Disney boss Bob Iger doesn’t believe that the House of Mouse is too reliant on the galaxy far, far away.
Speaking with Closing Bell on CNBC he discussed the current state of Disney, and Star Wars place in it.
“If you look at the profile of the company and collection of assets, we’re still basking in the glory of ‘Avenger: Endgame,’ a Marvel property,” he said on “Closing Bell ” on Wednesday. He noted that “Toy Story 4” and Disney’s remake of “The Lion King” are both coming out this summer. “There’s so much going on in the company that people are interested in.”
“Yes, we have a lot riding on ‘Star Wars,’ but we have a diversity of characters and franchises and stories,” he said. “I don’t think we are reliant too heavily on any one of them. We just like them all.”
