On Tuesday, Disney and Iger embarked on a momentous endeavor, launching the much anticipated Disney+ streaming service that is poised to shepherd the global media and entertainment company into the future. Disney’s big bet seems to be paying off: Disney+ kicked off with roughly 10 million sign-ups.
As Disney+ ushers in a new era, who will be responsible for running the company when Iger is set to step down in 2021?
Last week, TheWrap ran a two-part series diving into why Disney’s succession plans have been somewhat of a mess, and who, insiders say, the three candidates are who are poised to succeed Iger: Peter Rice, Disney TV chairman and media networks co-chair who came over in the Fox deal; Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney parks, experiences and products; and Kevin Mayer, Disney’s direct-to-consumer and international chairman.
Join us at noon on Twitter in the thread above (or here) to talk everything Disney.
