  25. FYI: January 29, 2020 is the EMAIL date of when the Disney shareholders ballots with Bob Iger named as CEO to be voted upon had gone out. It also stated that the board recommends that you vote for Bob Iger to remain as CEO. Think about it. That was on January 29, 2020 – Are you telling me that no one at Disney knew that Bob Iger was going to step down? AND there is no replacement named for Bob Chapek position he just left. Why didn't they have someone lined up? — AND – Why wasn't there an announcement of this in December or January so that Bob Chapek could be on the shareholder's voting ballot? —— What was the rush to put Bob Chapek as CEO effectively immediately? – one of these PREDICTIONS will come true:

    By October 2020, Bob Iger will announce that he is immediately stepping down from his “Executive Chairman” position and leave the company. (Iger will still be paid for his entire contract) — Then by November, Bob Chapek will NOT be renewed as CEO. A totally new CEO will be brought in and placed on the March 2021 shareholders voters ballot.

    OR —— By the middle of 2021, Bob Iger will continue to pull the strings of Bob Chapek, and then Michael Eisner will receive the Disney Legend award at D23 – and — Michael Eisner will bring his son Breck into Disney to direct Star Wars / Marvel.

  26. Oh!no! HE leads disney success on top amongst high and hard business competition .we get a perfect marvel world because of really HE.

  27. Pedophiles are us. Despise Disney.
