Last December, Disney announced that it was purchasing 21st Century Fox for $52.4 billion. This deal is set to change to the landscape of film and entertainment. Disney also announced that they are planning on releasing a streaming service titled Disney Plus in the future. On top of that, Disney is also releasing over nine movies across television and in theaters.
With these recent announcements, Disney has made people concerned. People have begun to question what will happen once Disney controls 40% of the box office. Some have even gone as far to blame superhero movie fans for this and think that it will ruin entertainment.
Honestly, those people should just relax.
I don't think this buy-out of Fox is something moviegoers should be so concerned with to the degree they currently are. This is not a political issue any normal person can protest against. This is something that only businessmen and politicians can have any effect on, really.
I don't mean to sound like Thanos here, but nothing can stop Disney from doing this. Because of that, I can understand the concern some people might have, but until Disney starts buying into other industries and getting into some corrupt illegal shenanigans, I think the general public should just hold their horses a minute.
If you don't want to go see movies because Disney is becoming big, then go for it. You are completely free to do so. I don't think it's fair to attack other people who don't really care about how big Disney is getting, because at the end of the day, they are just an entertainment company that produces film and television.
Personally, it does not bother me much how big Disney is now. I don't go to the movies much unless it's a Marvel Studios movie anyway, so I'm just gonna sit back and enjoy the movies that come out.
