Disney has basically acquired Fox. They technically have some more hurdles to go through, but everyone is expecting it to be fine. Of course, the biggest thing that Marvel fans are excited about is the fact that X-Men and Fantastic Four characters will be able to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, what else is Disney acquiring? I’ve put together a brief look into some of the other things Disney has acquired with a big one at the end.
Avatar (the blue people one)
King of the Hill
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
American Horror Story
The Peanuts Movie
Miracle on 34th Street
The Sound of Music
Planet of the Apes
Everything from Fox Searchlight
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The last one I want to mention is for Star Wars fans. Disney will now own 100% of the distribution rights for the original trilogy. This means that Disney could release Blu-ray versions of the original trilogy that features the original theatrical release. There is some speculation that such a thing is physically impossible, but if Disney is smart, they’ll find a way. Do you think Disney will do anything with all of these new properties, or will they remain untouched by the Mouse?
