I wonder if Star Wars was a sticking point
in the deal. Fox currently owns all
distribution rights to Episode IV and will
forever unless they sell them. They also
have the home video and streaming rights
to Episode I-III,V & VI till 2020. These
are cash cows that do not cost Fox a lot
of money considering the return on
investment. You have to figure that ANY
chance of a Star Wars Theatrical Cut
release relies on this deal going through.
Also, we probably won't see a box set with
all of the saga films together without
this deal as well.

Rumour us Murdoch’s son might be in line to replace Bob Iger next year. I do not see that as a good thing.

Let me sell you my company but you will put me in charge of your company. Not good

It might work. He seems like a capable executive and
his political views are more in line with Disney.

According to company insiders, Bob Iger could stay on past the end of his contract in 2019 to at least help integrate Fox's assets into Disney.
