Disneyland to expand in lieu of third Anaheim park

Mar. 13, 2015 6:26 PM ETThe Walt Disney Company (DIS)DISBy: Jason Aycock, SA News Editor9 Comments
  • A third Anaheim park is likely out for Disney (NYSE:DIS), but expanding Disneyland is still likely, CEO Robert Iger told shareholders.
  • Many shareholders have expected a third park to join Disneyland and Disney California Adventure for more than a decade.
  • Meantime, Iger confirmed (via an inadvertent answer to a child questioner) that Hollywood Studios, at Walt Disney World in Florida, would be changing names again. It used to be MGM Studios.
  • There's a very good chance, then, that either (or both) of the expanded Disneyland and new Hollywood Studios will be set around Disney's high-profile recent branding efforts: Marvel and/or Star Wars.

No matter what DIS chooses, it'll be like printing money
Clearly, as evidenced by my post about cinematic rights, I thought that you were writing about cinematic rights. Btw, I know that Disney owns Marvel. As for the parks, Universal has the rights east of the Mississippi and in Japan. Disney owns the park rights anywhere else.

Business is booming again in US.
Well, you're 100 percent wrong. Marvel owns the vast majority of the cinematic rights to its characters. The only one that Universal owns is the cinematic rights for Namor. Sony owns the rights to Spider Man and the characters synonymous with Spider Man. Fox owns the cinematic rights to the X Men and Fantastic Four (and their respective ancillary characters).

No you would be 100% wrong Disney OWNS Marvel. Universal holds the rights to the park for Marvel in both Orlando & California. Disney can use characters in International parks but not here in the U.S. Fox and Sony hold distribution and believe production rights but the franchise is owned by Disney.
Movie rights for Spiderman goes to Sony. X Men/Fantastic Four goes to Fox.

Spiderman definitely was Universal...

I believe most of Marvel rights here in the U.S. are retained by Universal Studios per arrangements before Disney bought.
Up up and away!
