Not joking. Bob Iger has officially stepped down randomly as the CEO of Disney. In his place, Bob Chapek will open a new chapter for the company.
Under Iger, Disney has:
-Purchased Pixar for $7.4 billion (2006)
-Purchased Marvel for $4 billion (2009)
-Purchased Lucasfilm fir $4 billion (2012)
-Opened Shanghai Disneyland (2016)
-Launched ESPN+ (2018)
-Purchased FOX assets for $71 billion (2018)
-Launched Disney+ (2019)
We can only wonder what Disney will become under Chapek's thumb as the new CEO.
