The X-Files, Legion And American Horror Story Among TV Shows Hoovered Up By Disney

A vast portion of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire has been offloaded to Disney.

That’s the headline that continues to send shockwaves across the four corners of the Internet, and the Mouse House is just getting started. Having drawn up tentative plans to consolidate its newly-acquired Marvel characters under the one umbrella (read: the Marvel Cinematic Universe), Disney is about to redraw the superhero genre as we know it. And at least according to CEO Bob Iger, whose time with the company will extend into 2021, this cross-pollination won’t impede on Fox’s own slate of adult-oriented and, in the case of Deadpool, hilariously crude superhero flicks.

But costumed crusaders weren’t the only motivating factor behind Disney’s acquisition. As we learned mere hours ago, the House of Mouse will soon gain control of Predator, Alien and a number of other high-profile film franchises, while USA Today has

Disney/Fox Deal: How The Battle to Beat Netflix Starts Today, What Happens to the Fox Network, And Other Burning Questions

Rupert Murdoch is cashing out. The idea of 21st Century Fox being consumed by Disney in a $52.4 billion all-stock deal has shocked Hollywood, where industry players never thought they’d see the powerful Fox behemoth be largely consumed, rather than do the consuming. But as one insider noted, Murdoch is looking toward his final legacy — and turning in his chips while the getting’s good.

“Rupert is 86. He’s looking toward setting up [his family],” one observer said. The industry is rapidly changing, and as the Disney deal currently values the 21st Century Fox assets at more than $66 billion, it’s probably never going to get better than that. Fox shareholders, including the Murdochs, could hold around 25 percent of a new mega-Disney, which will now be supremely positioned to face off with Netflix and other giants in the new media landscape.

The Walt Disney Company to Acquire 21st Century Fox & Many of its Entertainment Properties

A major shift in the cinema landscape was made today with the huge news that The Walt Disney Company is set to acquire 21st Century Fox for about $52.4 billion in stock. The major move will bring many movies, TV series, and distribution companies under the Disney umbrella, including Deadpool, X-Men, and the Fantastic Four.

‘The A Word’ Season 2 Finale: Beautiful, Heartbreakingly Honest Family Matters

Oh, The A Word. How casually devastating you are. While a show like This Is Us emotionally manipulates our feelings, The A Word lets its family drama work on us as a slow burn, leaving us with a complex and difficult conclusion to its second season. The cracks that we’ve seen in the Hughes family all season had to be dealt with, as well as the reality that the pull away from their homes in the Lake District can be a powerful one.

However, it appears that it was all part of the plan as Disney announced today that they have decided to acquire 21st Century Fox for a cool $52.4 billion!

The deal will include ownership of all film and TV assets, but will not include any of the premiere sports, news, or the Fox channels, as that would become a monopoly. Instead, those channels under 21st Century Fox (Fox Broadcasting network and stations,
