Report: Disney interested in Maker Studios

Disney (DIS -0.7%) is in talks with Maker Studios about an acquisition, according to Re/code.

The transaction, rumored to be at $500M or more, could be the largest investment in an YouTube-based property ever by a media giant.

The add-on will also follow a recent trend by Disney to expand through acquisition and partnerships instead of in-house development.

Time Warner (TWX) has a nice little piece of Maker Studios through its venture capital arm.
