A new report suggests Fox’s properties could remain a separate imprint like Marvel and Lucasfilm post Disney merger.
The Disney-Fox deal is inching closer to finalization, causing a massive shift in the entertainment industry. With the deal, Disney will acquire Fox’s FX, Fox Searchlight, and National Geographic. A new report from Variety suggests Disney is considering to Fox’s properties as a separate imprint. This would be similar to what Disney has done with Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar. The move would also make Disney+ and Hulu more appealing to consumers by offering brands as prestigious as FX and Fox Searchlight. However, Disney could also integrate the TV and Film productions units- no decision has been made yet.
