Disney's (DIS +0.2%) Maker Studios will lay off 10% of its workforce, according to Variety.

The round of jobs cuts wasn't unexpected with the newly-acquired property overlapping with Disney Interactive in some areas.

Maker Studios is expected to be an important distribution channel for short-form content from franchises such as Star Wars, The Avengers, and Disney's animated movies.
