Disney CEO is fired and re-hires predecessor named Bob Iger

The man named Bob Chapek renewed his contract to be the CEO of Disney in July.  However, recent scandal led to Chapek being fired by the Board of Directors to the Disney Company.  As a result, the man named Bob Iger replaces Chapek.  Iger retired as the CEO of Disney two years ago but was asked to return as the Head of Disney now that Chapek is gone. 

Iger received a “mandate” from the Board of Directors to Disney that Iger would be able to, “set the strategic direction for renewed growth and to work closely with the Board in developing a successor to lead the Company at the completion of his term.”

“I am extremely optimistic for the future of this great company and thrilled to be asked by the Board to return as its CEO,” said Bob Iger.

Chapek was fired from his position as the CEO of Disney because of a fight that unfolded between Chapek and the Governor of Florida.  The Governor of Florida is a man named Governor Ron DeSantis. 

DeSantis supported Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill.  The Bill, “prohibits teaching gender ideology and sexual orientation in kindergarten through third-grade classrooms.”

Chapek did not support this.  He wanted the Bill to be repealed. 

As a result, DeSantis stripped Disney of its “independent special district” status.  DeSantis said that Disney would face further repercussions if Disney made moves to destroy DeSantis’s agenda.

Rumor says that Disney added back a “gay scene” in the recent CGI movie named Light-Year when the two same-sex characters kiss.

It looks like Disney faces many new changes and challenges now and in the future.

  1. Disney seems like such a corrupt company. Disney+ is hugely expensive. But there are many shows (like a couple new Star Wars shows) that are only available to see on there. Ugh.
