Disney has confirmed that big changes are coming to the Fox film division, including word that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is inheriting Fox’s comic book heroes like the X-Men franchise.

Disney is also axing the majority of the existing Fox film development slate and refocusing output, after the studio posted a $170 million operating loss in Disney’s fiscal third quarter.

Disney CEO Bob Iger told Wall Street analysts on Tuesday during Disney’s quarterly earnings call that the Fox’s superhero titles would move forward under the stewardship of Feige. In addition, the company’s streaming platform Disney Plus will get four big brands from Fox to adapt as straight-to-service content. Those include the Macaulay Culkin holiday franchise “Home Alone,” the historical action romp “Night at the Museum,” the family comedy “Cheaper by the Dozen” and the live-action “The Diary of a Wimpy Kid.”

But that is not the case; in fact, with Iger’s announcement Tuesday that the company will be bundling Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus, FX’s programming will be a part of a formidable package, offered at $12.99 a month.....By the end of 2019, there will be a projected 520 scripted programs airing across television platforms, a 5% increase from the prior year, said Landgraf on stage at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour on Tuesday.

Disney missed earnings this quarter.  What were two of the big reasons?  Dark Phoenix and Star Wars land.  Disney made a point of saying they inherited Dark Phoenix so weren't responsible for the financial disaster the film is.  They also acknowledge mistakes that led to Star Wars land having such low attendance.

Cost and that the other main attraction isn't open yet.  The high cost puts many people off especially since only one of the two main attractions is opened.  Why go now instead of waiting for it to fully open?  People have theorized that the plan was to open the park partially now to bring in people and then bring them again when the other ride opens.  Instead many people have decided to wait for the park to fully open.  Which feeds into a lot of the criticism about Star Wars land, there's not much to do but shop.

I have also heard that they just did too good a job in keeping people away. with the reservation system, staggering attraction openings, etc. But mostly, I think that people who are willing to travel a long distance to see it are just waiting for the Florida version to open.

It also needs droids walking around and staff members cosplaying as aliens, too. It’s basically a space port, it needs more action here.

EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources said.
