Ted Sarandos - Netflix
I don't think we compete with Amazon in the movie space at all. I frankly don't understand their strategy. I don't understand why perpetuating a model that feels more and more disconnected with the population is good.feedback

Mike Vorhaus

What Disney is doing is a really big deal in terms of trying new things, and I don't think it even has answers to some of these questions, including what the services will cost. But it's clearly not the end of linear television. It's not the end of Netflix.feedback

Bob Iger

It's high time we got in this business. The profitability, the revenue-generating capability of this initiative is substantially greater than the business models we're currently being served by.feedback

Bob Iger

The media landscape is increasingly defined by direct relationships between content creators and consumers, and our control of BAMTech's full array of innovative technology will give us the power to forge those connections, along with the flexibility to quickly adapt to shifts in the market. This acquisition and the launch of our direct-to-consumer services mark an entirely new growth strategy for the Company, one that takes advantage of the incredible opportunity that changing technology provides us to leverage the strength of our great brands.feedback

Jason Calacanis

It will be very easy for them to get tens of millions of people to subscribe. If something like poker becomes extremely popular, they could, with a direct-to consumer offering, have a poker channel, and do it with a level of professionalism that other people simply can't. So I think it's going to open up new opportunities for them.feedback

Benjamin Swinburne - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

Netflix may be losing content from its most important supplier in Disney, but its strategy to pivot to originals, build its own global content brand, and vertically integrate into self production mitigate this loss.feedback

John Janedis - Jefferies

Disney's decision to end its distribution deal with Netflix (beginning in 2019) supports our long-held view that content owners will increasingly look to retain content for owned platforms. What is unclear is whether or not the largely staggered impact will affect NFLX's growth in net adds. NFLX's content investment likely assumed some non-renewals.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

While this will be a negative headline for Netflix, we expect the actual impact on the subscriber base to be minimal. There is no question Disney content was a 'nice to have,' but we believe Netflix can find ways to re-allocate … to create similarly engaging (and more exclusive) content for its subscriber base.feedback

Bob Iger

But we're mindful of the volume of product that would go into those services, and we want to be careful about that. ... It's all in discussion.feedback

Michael Browne

I think it's late and it's probably arrogant. I have to confess my children are great users of Netflix … They don't watch Disney. They don't see anything of Disney on Netflix. From my point of view sitting there as a consumer I think this is a pretty hollow threat, is Disney content that good that it drives Netflix subscribers? I don't think it is.feedback

Paolo Pescatore - CCS Insight

Disney has been a relatively late player to the online video landscape. The move squashes any rumors of Disney acquiring Netflix. But it is a huge compliment to the success Netflix has achieved within a short period of time and a strong validation of its strategy. Removing Disney content will be a setback for Netflix, but expect other content and media owners.feedback

Marc Chaikin - Chaikin Analytics

We're banging up against resistance and there's a lot of people on vacation. In this type of environment, bad news tends to send the market lower.feedback

Bob Iger

This represents a big strategic shift for the company. We felt that having control of a platform we've been very impressed with after buying 33 percent of it a year ago would give us much greater control of our destiny in a rapidly changing market.feedback

Bob Iger

This will represent a larger investment in Disney branded intellectual property, both TV and movies.feedback

Ari Wald - Oppenheimer Holdings

We think any near term seasonal pullback of 1, 2, 3 percent should be met with buying interest, and we expect higher over the coming months – through the year end.feedback

Aaron Kohli - BMO Capital Markets

The 10-year is a sweet spot for the Japanese buyers, and this is a seasonally good time for them to be putting money in.feedback

Abigail Summerville

Check out which companies are making headlines after the bell on Tuesday: DIS, NFLX, PCLN more.feedback

Bob Iger

We're going to make a significant investment in original Disney-branded television and motion pictures for just this platform.feedback

Richard Broughton

Some of the Millarworld comics have been made into some big films. There is some latent awareness of its properties. But there is a large range of untapped comics yet to translate to TV or big screen. Netflix has a lot of work to do to raise awareness of this alternative intellectual property that are not household names in a way Marvel or DC Comics characters are.feedback

Channing Dungey

We have actors on our shows who have all sorts of different political views. Tim Allen is a valuable part of the Disney/ABC family. He has been for a very, very long time. But Tim Allen's personal politics had nothing whatsoever to do with it. Last Man Standing was a challenging one for me because it was a steady performer in the ratings, but once we made the decision not to continue with comedies on Fridays, that was where we landed.feedback

Mark Millar

This is only the third time in history a major comic book company has been purchased at this level.feedback

Colin Sebastian

We remain encouraged by the company's extensive portfolio of key franchises, and believe growth opportunities remain as new titles, growing esports offerings, and improving monetization trends continue to generate upside potential.feedback

Vicki Dobbs Beck

At ILMxLAB, we want people to step inside the worlds of our stories. Through our collaboration with The Void, we can make this happen as guests become active participants in an unfolding Star Wars adventure. By combining Lucasfilm's storytelling expertise with cutting-edge imagery, and immersive sound from the team at Skywalker Sound, while invoking all the senses, we hope to truly transport all those who experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire to a galaxy far, far away.feedback

Faron Kelley - Disney

It is exciting because it isn't just cheer, it's basketball, it's volleyball, it's esports with gaming. We are absolutely looking at esports and it's a wonderful venue for that. We are trying to keep up with what sports are breaking and how we can be involved in them … Esports is a big one we are looking at and are very excited about it. Everyone is learning at the same time about what is the best way to do this. With our unique configuration, we could have an esports event going on at the same time as an eSports conference or expo in one of our other venues. We have got a lot of flexibility.feedback

Selena Gomez

I'm lucky because he's more of a best friend than anything else. I remember when I had my Disney show, I was just running around and not caring and making kids laugh. I was all over the place. And now it feels more zoomed-in -- you have ugly people trying to get negative things from you, and the energy makes you feel bad about yourself. You can't help it. It's very hard to find out who you are during all that mess and pressure.feedback

Freddy Rolon - ESPN Deportes

We brought Messi to the U.S. in 2007, and took him to Disney World. He was able to wander around, go on rides and enjoy himself.feedback

Anika Noni Rose

The uniform and that belt! That belt is so heavy and unwieldy; I had bruises on my hips when I was shooting. But the flip side of that is it really informs the character when she's wearing it. I never wanted to take it off as much as my body wanted me to because it's so much a part of who she is. It informs her movement and how she carries herself and I love that part of her.feedback

Anika Noni Rose

He is an executive producer, he's a co-creator, but he doesn't move through the room like that. He doesn't bowl you over with that; there was always room for anything I had to say. It was really a joy to work with him.feedback

Anika Noni Rose

It has been one of the joys of my career. I really liked the show, I liked writing, I like how New York it is. I get to be completely unhinged and open. I get to be completely against the ties, completely against what we have been brought up to be as good girls. Completely against from what people assume of me when they see me. I had a ball on set with him. He was so lovely and he always has a little twinkle in his eye. He is ready to play and excited about the craft of what we do.feedback

Anika Noni Rose

We learn something new about Jukebox and what she comes from and how she turned into the person that she is. You get to see some different sides of her. You get to see her connection, even though it isn't really a positive connection that she has with Tariq – but where and why they connect. And the connection between she and Kanan … some really, really exciting things happen out of that.feedback

Paul Feig

I rely on test screenings like crazy. I'll try to get in front of a test audience as soon as I can, usually like four weeks in, so that you're not in love with it… You're kind of like I think this is good, let's try it, let's see what's working.feedback

Doug Creutz - Cowen Group

We expect studio profitability to rebound to peak levels in FY18 based on a strong slate that includes Star Wars 8 and Avengers 3. However, we continue to believe that the studio is operating at roughly peak profitability, given its utter dominance of the industry.feedback

Jake Paul

That was just kind of a lesson to teach you guys that not everything you see in the media on a day-to-day basis is real, and that you can basically fake everything and twist anything the way you want.feedback

Jake Paul

Long story short... my team, Disney Channel, and I have come to the agreement its finally time for me to move on from the Disney family and Bizaardvark. . . I love my cast mates and will continue to support Disney but I have outgrown the channel and feel its time to move forward in my career. At this point in time I am wanting to focus more on my personal brand, my YouTube channel, business ventures, growing Team 10 and working on more adult acting roles.feedback

Tetsuya Nomura - Disney

If anything, the biggest challenge [in creating Kingdom Hearts] may be trying to converse with Disney. With Final Fantasy, from a creator's perspective, it's a very free title, free to create. Each title is different, and there's not much in the way of limitations for the numbered instalments in the series. I'd been with the Final Fantasy team for most of my career; I'd always been involved in their production. In my mind, the way to create a Final Fantasy, the formula if you like, is ingrained.feedback

Tetsuya Nomura - Disney

With any Kingdom Hearts game, there are so many different elements. Some players might want to engage with the story. Others might want to enjoy the gameplay experience, or some might like exploring the settings of the world – it depends on where the player wants to put their emphasis. There may be some areas of the story players are not familiar with, but I'm hoping that piques their interest to go back to previous titles to learn more about the world, I do feel that even if you started with Kingdom Hearts III, it would be enjoyable in and of itself.feedback

Tetsuya Nomura - Disney

Just to get Toy Story approved with Disney took a long time. I'd wanted to use the film in Kingdom Hearts for over 10 years, since I was in development on Kingdom Hearts II. It was only a couple of years ago, shortly before we moved on to developing Kingdom Hearts III, that we finally got an opportunity to speak directly with Pixar.feedback

Steve Whitmire

I started out as a major Muppet fan and was able to work that into being contacted by Jim Henson. I met a man named Caroll Spinney, who does Big Bird, at a puppetry festival in Atlanta. I was this 18-year-old kid, and he recruited me onto the Muppets at a time when the Muppets were really one of the biggest things on the planet – I mean, they were huge during The Muppet Show, so it was an incredible time to join. It was still quite a small company, and I got to work with the originators of those characters and then had the opportunity, under Jim, to originate many of my own.feedback

Steve Whitmire

It's not something that can be taught, you know? Or at least not by anyone who hasn't gone through it. In an ideal world, what would happen in my case is what happened with Jim. I know the Hensons have said that I refused to have an understudy – and I don't want to have an understudy, because Jim never had understudies. What an understudy does in the meantime is develop their own characters, and by the time I die or retire, they're really too busy to do it anyway.feedback

Steve Whitmire

It's almost been more than a career – it's a calling for me. And to have that pulled away has been pretty tough to deal with. I've had nine months to begin to put it into perspective, but it still hurts.feedback

Steve Whitmire

I just don't want to launch a counterattack because then it validates what I feel is trying be done here, which is to start a war of words between me and the Hensons. I just don't want to do that. I think people understand that they've been out of the picture for such a long time and that what they're saying is not that imperative to the subject matter, so I'd rather for it to turn back to what happened with Disney.feedback

Steve Whitmire

When I hear that people are doing this via audition processes, where they march a bunch of people through, it tells me that unfortunately the folks making those choices don't have any intuition as to who the character would be. So they have to treat it like American Idol, like a reality competition show with Kermit as the prize, and that's just going to destroy the character.feedback

Steve Whitmire

I've been with the Muppets since 1978, just short of 40 years, and 27 of those were as Kermit, along with many other characters too. It's really been my life's work. It's the only thing I've done throughout my adult life.feedback

Steve Whitmire

What's come down at Disney is that the Muppets have sort of been treated like a box of crayons. They've handed that box of crayons off to a lot of really well-meaning people who just don't understand the characters, and they let those people draw with those crayons.feedback

Steve Whitmire

I love Matt – we've worked very closely together for a long time. But I think it's actually unfair of them to ask Matt to do this – and for him to take it. He's a terrific performer, but the only issue is that he has no connection to Jim in terms of personal relationship. I feel that he's not the right choice for Kermit.feedback

Steve Whitmire

I think that there is a calculated hope on the part of the owners that the audience won't notice [that Kermit has been replaced]. And in some cases, that will be true. But the depth of that character is what makes him who he is, and it's hard to impress upon people who only watch the Muppets from the outside, how important that is and what a hallmark of Jim Henson that was. Consistency is absolutely vital to these characters.feedback

Steve Whitmire

Jim Henson's creative spirit doesn't reside in a puppet. It's in my heart and my mind and the things that I know. So, unfortunately for the fans and for Disney, I'm kind of taking him with me.feedback

Ryan Seacrest

It's genuinely hard to put into words what American Idol means to me. I'm so grateful for the show and all the career and life opportunities it's allowed me to experience. It's been an incredible journey from day one. To be asked to return this year, at my new home at Disney/ABC, is an honor, if not a bit surreal. I believe ABC is the perfect home for Idol, and I've every confidence the show's legions of fans will love it – especially Idol's best traditions of showcasing heartwarming stories, remarkable talent discovery, and, best of all, making dreams come true.feedback

Steve Whitmire

This is my life's work. The only thing I've done my whole adult life, and it's just been taken away from me. I just couldn't understand why we couldn't resolve this.feedback

Steve Whitmire

I've been laying awake at night for nine months trying to empathise with a position of ending somebody's career over issues that seem to me to be so easily solved. Given the opportunity, I'd step right back in.feedback

Steve Whitmire

They were uncomfortable with the way I had handled giving notes to one of the top creative executives on the series. Nobody was yelling and screaming or using inappropriate language or typing in capitals. It was strictly that I was sending detailed notes. I don't feel that I was, in any way, disrespectful by doing that.feedback

Bill Simmons

In 2013, [ESPN management] had no idea that cord-cutting was coming.feedback

Chris Beatty - Disney

It's got to be big. Go big or go home with Star Wars. It's kind of forgotten about. People in the know like Han and Chewie, they knew of this place.feedback

Debbie McClellan

The role of Kermit the Frog is an iconic one that is beloved by fans and we take our responsibility to protect the integrity of that character very seriously. We raised concerns about Steve's repeated unacceptable business conduct over a period of many years, and he consistently failed to address the feedback. The decision to part ways was a difficult one which was made in consultation with the Henson family and has their full support.feedback

Brian Henson

He'd send emails and letters attacking everyone, attacking the writing and attacking the director.feedback

John Lasseter

These characters are really strong, they're really amazing characters and we love to think of them way beyond just the movie that was made.feedback

Frank Lampard

Being a stepmother wasn't something I had ever envisioned happening to me. Disney has done a brilliant job of making out that all stepmothers are evil, but when you find yourself in that situation, you make the best of it.feedback

Mena Massoud

So honoured and grateful for the opportunity to help bring this magical story to life once again. Let's get to work! #Aladdin #Disney.feedback

Mark Hamill

I wish Carrie were here, . She would be making me laugh and be off camera extending her middle finger -- one of her favorite gestures. I really wish she were here, but, she would also want us to be having a good time and not be sad.feedback

Billie Lourd

As far back as I can remember, my mom and I have been Disney fanatics. I was so obsessed with Ariel that I wanted to change my name. We went to Disneyland so much that I now realize she might have even loved it more than I did. Becoming part of the Disney family was truly an amazing moment for her. She secretly always wanted to be a Disney princess, so getting to be a Disney princess and a Disney legend would have been her ultimate dream.feedback

Mark Hamill

The super cool space sis I have in Carrie Francis Fisher. I loved her. And we were like siblings. The good and the bad! What a great thrill it was to come back in The Force Awakens. At that time in our lives, we were comfortable with each other. I know if she would here today, she would have flipped me the bird at least twice already.feedback

John Lasseter

Trust me when I say this, it is harder to think of a title than to get to space. We're not calling it 'Thawed.feedback

John Lasseter

One of the greatest rewards that I have in overseeing these three animation studios is getting to work with young and talented filmmakers, and in Toy Story 4 we witnessed one person rise up and becomes a great leader in front of our eyes.feedback

John Lasseter

Seeing all the princesses together, we wanted them to actually have a nice moment with Vanellope ... she recognizes (them) being real and that does break down the stereotypes.feedback

Bob Iger

She brought her trademark strength, heart and humour to the role, which is a truly legendary performance. Carrie has been an iconic part of the Star Wars franchise from the very beginning and she will always hold a very special place in our hearts and the hearts of fans around the world. We all miss her talent, her wit and her friendship. This December we will release her final film – and as always, Carrie Fisher was an original and there will never be another. Certainly we're fortunate to have worked with her. We're incredibly proud to call her a Disney Legend.feedback

Stan Lee

To me he was more than a man, he was an inspiration. To think that today I'm standing here in the house that Disney built, and we've paid tribute to Jack – it's so thrilling I can't tell you.feedback

Josh Gad

Oh really, it's going to be called 'Frozen 2'? How original.feedback

Ava DuVernay

I felt like this might be my only opportunity to do a film of this size so why not just take a big swing. The interesting thing is these kind of Sci-Fi fantasies have been done traditionally by white men, so to see the Sci-Fi fantasy through the lens of a black woman – and still Disney – I'm trying to keep it Disney but trying to keep it me, and its been a lovely process.feedback

Chen Shujin

The risks brought by asset management will be shifted to Sunac through this arrangement. While Wanda will rest on loan interest income, which is less risky.feedback

Yan Yuejin

Shedding these so far unprofitable assets would not only reduce the company's debt ratio, highlighting the asset-light model, but also raise its chance of being listed as a non-property company.feedback

Kurt Russell

I'm wondering how much trouble I'm in. Everyone is nice. The crew is great. And here comes Walt Disney. And I thought, Oh-oh.' And he came over and he said, Well, young man, I hear you got the game-winning hit. Way to go! Have fun today, guys.' And it was like from that moment on, I knew that guy was cool. He got it.feedback

Kurt Russell

What I learned at Disney was how to make movies, and I learned that from Walt. Mr. Disney took me around and introduced me to many of the animators. I look back on it now and I realize I was this kid, and he was taking the time to pick my brain, because I think that was an important thing for him to do with young people.feedback

Kurt Russell

And in return I got to listen to him talk about arcs of movies and characters. The process of building an audience's expectations. The process of creating a character that the audience really cares about and attaching it to life, so that we can all relate to it. So, in that regard, I was getting lessons that I had no idea I was getting.feedback

Chris Teather

We're thrilled to be publishing The Beatles: Yellow Submarine for the 50th Anniversary of this fantastic movie. We can't wait for Beatles fans to experience this official adaptation.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

We need a box office super hero. We need him now, and he's here.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

I think this movie can do for early July what 'Wonder Woman' did for early June, which is get us back on track.feedback

Doug Creutz - Cowen Group

The question is how much bigger can it get? They're over half of total industry profitability already, with industry profitability declining. So while I expect Disney studio to continue to do well, I think the prospects for them to do better than they are now are pretty low.feedback

Doug Creutz - Cowen Group

We've been increasingly bearish for a few years now. Attendance is declining, budgets are going up and studio profitability is shrinking.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

The sixth movie in the super-hero series is expected to bring in $85 to $110 million this opening weekend.feedback

Kenny Lamberti

I think there's a kind of mythology built around sharing a life with a dog. It's not actually a Disney movie. What we try to do, first and foremost, is to get people as informed as possible before they go to get a dog.feedback

Kevin Feige - Marvel

Now we have the first time Spider-Man in the Marvel Universe where he belongs. I sort of am still pinching myself. I can't believe it. I can't believe we're premiering the movie tonight and I can't wait for people to see it.feedback

Valerie Marino

If you have a Target REDCard, go and stock up on Disney gift cards there. My husband and I use that to buy our annual passes. I'll say, I want the chicken sandwich, but no fries.feedback

Steven Cahall - RBC Capital Markets

Yesterday the NY Post reported that a 'well-placed banker' ... said not to count Verizon out of a potential bid for Disney. Though not fake news, we think the Post's burden of legitimacy for publishing such ideas is below that of publications like the WSJ, Reuters and Bloomberg. But to its credit, we note that it occasionally gets these M&A calls right.feedback

Tom Holland

I think for me I've realized the responsibility of being a role model for young kids everywhere.feedback

Tom Ascheim

In the world of too much, you need to stand out. We've seen Disney do that better than any movie studio in history. Television isn't the movies – it's much more of a daily habit – but some of those principles still work. You need events, you need big shows to make those events feel real.feedback

Adam Grant

Persistence is one of the most important forces in success and happiness. There's the author whose novel was rejected half a dozen times. The artist whose cartoons were turned down over and over. And the musicians who were told 'guitar groups are on the way out' and they'd never make it in show business. If they had quit, Harry Potter, Disney and the Beatles wouldn't exist.feedback

Miley Cyrus

I feel like I proved what I wanted to do. I feel like I have respect, and I feel like my charity, Happy Hippie, has given me that. I feel like I have the respect as an artist that I want, so it's less that I have to prove myself, and that gives me a lot of contentment. I think that makes me have more freedom in my music, because I feel like I can really just be myself, and my fans are so accepting of me. But it's just hard for people that are looking out from the outside inside my life all the time and going through every little thing. They wanted to keep me the same.feedback

Jeff Reitz

The number one thing I tell people is to bring your patience. With the summer time crowds and the heat I tell people to relax and have fun. I've gotten to experience so much of the magic of Disney that it continues to be fun for me. And that's why I've still chosen to keep coming every day.feedback

Ron Howard

It was an honor, but it would've been too daunting. I don't think anybody wanted to follow-up that act at the time.feedback

Stephen Holden

Ms. Chastain's watchful, layered performance helps keep the film on an even keel, but it is not enough to prevent 'The Zookeeper's Wife,' with its reassuringly cuddly critters, from feeling like a Disney version of the Holocaust.feedback

Alex Martins - Orlando Magic

With Orlando as our hometown, Magic has always been a key strand of our DNA. This expanded agreement with Disney brings our story full circle and represents the coming together of two dynamic organizations that have become synonymous with Orlando.feedback

Patton Oswalt

We are at 'Dorky Disney T-shirt Relationship Level', from which no one returns. GREAT CTHULHU WHAT HAVE WE DONE?!?feedback

Barton Crockett - FBR Capital Markets

We were arguing that this was on pace to be the most profitable Disney park globally. I believe we were above [Wall] Street at that time and I think everything's played out pretty close to what we thought.feedback

Barton Crockett - FBR Capital Markets

The theme parks are the main driver of earnings growth right now for Disney, and Shanghai is really propelling a good chunk of that right now.feedback

Bob Chapek

I think those are the sort of right precursors, if you will, for future development. We're very encouraged by what we've seen.feedback

Bob Iger

We have no projections about what's ahead except to say that this is being embraced by China in that 50 percent visiting are actually coming from outside the Shanghai region.feedback

Bob Iger

We're pleased that we're off to such a great start but we've got more to do here first before we really talk about or think about doing more elsewhere in China but I think over time there's an inevitability to that.feedback

Bob Chapek

We're extraordinarily encouraged by the unbelievable result of 11 million guests in the first year and more important than that, the satisfaction scores that we get are extraordinarily high. And I think those are the sort of right precursors, if you will, for future development.feedback

Ben Cavender

With the theme park, films, co-productions, Disney English and retail, they're creating an ecosystem to bring consumers in and foster a broader buzz and awareness. The aim is to recreate that feeling in the U.S. where you have multiple generations who know the characters and cartoons.feedback

Adam Grant

But that's only half the story. For every J.K. Rowling and Walt Disney and Lennon and McCartney, there are thousands of writers and entrepreneurs and musicians who fail not for lack of grit, but because of how narrowly they apply it.feedback

George A. Kalogridis - Walt Disney World Resort

The Lane Thomas Foundation was created to give honor and light to Lane's life. The foundation is dedicated to supporting families of children needing life-saving organ transplants. To provide continued awareness of the foundation and its mission, we've commissioned an original sculpture of the lighthouse the foundation uses as a symbol of love and hope, to be installed on our property this summer.feedback

Kelly Clarkson

We don't generally do a lot honestly, because we're just so tired! [Brandon] manages Blake Shelton, he also manages me, we have four kids, there's a whole career! I had kids older, so I had selfish times when I'd go out and have fun so I don't feel like I've missed anything. I feel like a lot of moms that started at like 21 having kids – no, no. I started at 30, so we're good!feedback

Camryn Manheim

I thought, Oh, why not? What great experience! They'll never cast him as the lead in a Disney musical, he's never really been on camera. And then four months and eight callbacks, he got cast in it. I don't know whether to kick myself or throw a party for us.feedback

George Kliavkoff

We've got nothing to announce, but we're very interested. It's just the right kind of event for us.feedback

It ultimately will change entertainment. VR will be an immersive experience impacting all the senses – sight, sound, motion, touch, smell.feedback

Mark Cameron - Jaguar Land Rover

We constantly strive to create standout experiences for our customers through our partnerships. By using Jaunt's cutting-edge VR technology, we were able to give unprecedented access to the team and America's Cup sailing in a thrilling firsthand experience.feedback

George Kliavkoff

It's a bit of a chicken-and-egg situation. We intend to offer an immersive technology and the content that will help drive consumer adoption.feedback

Mary Barra - General Motors

Environmental stewardship and sustainability are part of our business model and core to our operations.feedback

Chris Nee

It was important to me to let them know that we see them and they matter.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are writing to express our strong support for the United States remaining in the Paris climate agreement.feedback

Wayne Balta - International Business Machines

As IBM stated 10 years ago, Climate change is one of the most critical global environmental challenges facing the planet.' That is even truer today.feedback

Indra K. Nooyi - PepsiCo

Combating climate change is absolutely critical to the future of our company, customers, consumers – and our world.feedback

Marlon West

I'm pretty pumped up about what we did. There's nothing, when I look at the final film, that I cringe at. And there usually is.feedback

Marlon West

What made the ocean character look like water to one person, looked too agitated and aggressive to another. You have the ocean often as a chartacter looming over toddler Moana and looming over Moana's grandmother, and at no point do you ever want to be afraid for them. You want to be in awe.feedback

Marlon West

That was a big challenge. They would animate the ocean as almost a sock puppet, and we would take that and fill it full of bubbles and liquid or we'd do a simulation over it and make it full of water to make it look more watery.feedback

Dionne Fonoti

In the Pacific, we don't consider the water a barrier to each other. It's not just the cultures of the people and the islands that connect us, it's also the ocean that connects us.feedback

Marlon West

Water is always hard. Usually, in animation, we have a dozen water shots. They're hard to do.feedback

Erin Ramos

You know it's hard for me to go to the beach nowadays. When I'm there, I'm looking at how foam dissipates, at how the water recedes back into the ocean, the cadence and the rhythm of the little breaks. I'm looking at how the beach itself is modeled to create the reef breaks, how the light affects the water, the clarity of the water itself, the colors. There's just a million things going through my head.feedback

Running these scripts to generate these animations leaves room for the artists to focus on the artistry of the shot, so they have time to create these sweeping shots, and the ability to have the ocean acting as a character.feedback

As effects artists, working with fluids, you can't always predict what you're going to get from your water simulation. And the hard thing with water is, if it doesn't look right, you can really tell. Even if it's in the background.feedback

Jerry Bruckheimer

(The pirates) are irreverent characters, something he totally created and the kind of irreverent fun attitude that all the movies have is because of Johnny. As long as the audience wants to come, we'll be there, and Johnny wants to make it and Disney wants to finance it. I hope it goes on forever.feedback

James Cameron

Everything that is beautiful and alien and strange here was inspired by something beautiful and alien and strange right here on earth. The thing that stirs the soul – whether it's a flower, a mountain, it touches us, and it touches everyone. And as we grow up we sort of learn to ignore it. I think this place hopefully will reconnect people. I hope they leave here with a little sense of responsibility.feedback

I'm personally aware of several financial institutions that have started keeping a stock of digital currency on hand, should they find themselves victims of ransomware. Although paying the ransom is hardly a new approach, it's clear some firms realize their approach to security may be lacking and paying might be the way out.feedback

Andrew McDonnell - Astech

The number of people who would cancel their Netflix accounts, or not buy one because of the release of this one season of one show, must be tiny.feedback

Terence Goggin - Alvarez & Marsal

Netflix could, for example, simply offer the stolen episodes for free as a 'trial' of their service. While this isn't an option for everyone who has had their data stolen, it can help to discourage future thefts by removing the financial incentive.feedback

Tom Kulik

No, don't pay the ransom. More and more frequently, hackers responsible for ransomware attacks take the money and provide no (or inadequate) means to decrypt the files after payment. Sometimes, they even attempt to extort more.feedback

Tim Nollen

Disney has some distribution renewals coming up in the next 18 months, presenting an opportunity to gain some pricing. But as subs continue to fall, there could also be some loss of bargaining leverage vs carriage fee negotiations in the past.feedback

Tim Nollen

We still think Disney is one of the very best companies in media but we are setting the pause button as the industry in general, and ESPN in particular, continue to digest the implications of changing viewing habits. Disney's cable net exposure and outsized sub declines at ESPN have again become a focal point in investors' minds. Advertising was also soft in calendar Q1 (Disney's F2Q). We don't see much near-term scope for either to pick up.feedback

Miley Cyrus

That was really hard every day from, like, [ages] 11 to 18. I didn't get a school escape like most people. I went to work with my dad. And then I started driving my dad toward the end, when I could start driving. And then my grandma went with me every day. It was a lot of time with dad and grandma.feedback

Miley Cyrus

Harry Styles

Finally, tonight, this is a big story in the entertainment world: Hackers have stolen a copy of Pirates of the Caribbean and they are holding it for ransom. They could release this movie illegally. I guess you would say it's a pirated video. They're holding Pirates of the Caribbean for ransom–sounds to me like they're charging them an arm and a peg. If Disney pays this ransom, they could go into Johnny Debt. If people see this movie early, it would be a movie about a pirate ship with no sales. Kids can't see the movie anyway because it's rated argh.feedback

So far, they don't seem to be doing much of anything we can see to bring incremental paying subscribers into the system.feedback

Todd Juenger

ESPN is an extraordinarily powerful brand for all those people out there, and there are lots, who care about sports. But the fact is not everybody cares about sports, and we think there's tens of millions of households who, for a variety of reasons, are still paying today for ESPN who don't really want the product. We don't think there's anything Disney can do to compel those types of people to keep paying for ESPN over time.feedback

Todd Juenger

It's somewhat comical in a way. One would think that you would see all sorts of varieties of the types of packages, offering things to different consumers. Strangely enough, what's launched kind of looks the same.feedback

Bob Iger

I moved into the role after having studied under Michael for five years. I overlapped with him for six months between the time I was named and the time that he left. And it was–frankly, it was seamless.feedback

Bob Iger

There are other things that are clearly at the top of my list in terms of priorities. It's continuing to grow the company in the digital direction, it's continuing to grow the company globally, it's continuing to solidify ESPN's future by doing the things that I talked about on this call and probably above all that, which is tied in part to succession, but it goes beyond succession, it's making sure that the leadership of this company across the board continues to be really strong.feedback

Bob Iger

I think there's way too much pessimism about ESPN because ESPN is still in demand from three constituents you want to be in demand the most from.feedback

Bob Iger

We believe we're well positioned to contend with what we think is continued disruption in the business. We believe these new light pack options that include ESPN and over-the-top top platforms are the future and an asset to us. We will eventually be in a direct consumer business for ESPN products, and hope to launch one of our brand technology platforms before the end of year . We are actually confident in ESPN's future.feedback

The past six years of collaborating with Jennifer as Emma Swan have been truly magical. Watching her breathe life into Emma, she accomplished more than we could have dreamed possible – she gave life to a brand-new Disney Princess, filled with strength and intelligence and an incredible closet full of red leather jackets. We'll miss seeing her every day, but her imprint upon Once Upon a Time is indelible. She will always be a part of the show and its heart and soul. That said, just because Jennifer won't be back every week doesn't mean we won't see our savior again.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

It's all about strategy when it comes to Marvel and with 'Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2,' the notion of moving what was an August release for the first film to the key summer kick off spot in May clearly paid huge dividends for Disney. For this 'Guardians' to post the sixth best bow for the month is incredibly impressive given the Cinderella story of the title's ascension from being a little known question mark of a movie, to a global phenomenon.feedback

David Ellis - Morningstar

We are not competing against Disney or other character brands selling merchandise. We are a corporate brand which takes longer to build. We are certainly not going to use huge amounts of public money to advertise. It has to be low-risk commercial income; this is low-margin but high-profit. Our brand is synonymous with London. You can see our brand rise and fall with London's popularity and presence in the global market. There is great potential and it could earn significant income and we are confident it can. But we also go with the ups and downs of the capital city.feedback

Jim Suva - Citigroup Global Markets

We identified a handful of potential M&A targets. Three are media firms: Netflix, Disney and Hulu. Three are video game developers: Activision, Electronic Arts and Take-Two. And, one is an auto maker: Tesla. Each target confers some strategic benefit to Apple. Like Apple, Netflix is global, has no non-core assets (like Disney) and is disrupting the global video ecosystem. Apple could help accelerate this disruption.feedback

James Gunn

We have him act the scene with the actors, then we have a young actor named Aaron Schwartz who watched everything that Kurt did, and he would go out and do the scene again and mimic exactly what Kurt did – he looks a lot like a young Kurt. Then, we basically take Kurt's performance and we fuse part of Aaron's skin onto Kurt's body and onto Kurt's performance. It's not cheap and it's not easy. That [scene] pretty much took our entire post-production period to finish. I didn't get the final shots still almost a few weeks before 'lock.feedback

To do a mega deal, like [buying] Disney, certainly getting the cash back in the U.S. would be a nice positive. Now listen, there's reason to believe that the reason that Apple hasn't done a deal in the past few years isn't because they don't have the money, but because they believe their old strategy works into content.feedback

Jim Cramer

There's another aspect that has Netflix's stock ramping endlessly: takeover talk. Let's put it this way: Apple's had ample time to consider buying Netflix to augment its service revenue stream – the key to having investors pay up for an otherwise hardware business model that's always viewed skeptically. The scuttlebutt says that Disney's ready to spin off ESPN and take in Netflix with a simplified structure, less levered to cord cutting. Last week's noisy layoffs at ESPN solidified the chatter.feedback

Jim Cramer

We've all lived through the supposedly disappointing Facebook quarters that weren't really disappointing at all ... yet the stock gets hammered anyway. I'm always surprised that people consider this philosophy such a mystery. When you ponder how much Facebook's stock moves up intra-quarter, you'd think that there would be some sort of reluctance to sell on the news. Given how much it's run, I wouldn't be all that surprised if you get a better buying opportunity than you're going to get tomorrow morning, even if the results are terrific.feedback

Jim Cramer

Amazon reported a fabulous quarter where it felt like the company couldn't hide its amazing profitability even if it wanted to. It's a great sign about the profitability because Amazon's expanding like mad. On every conference call, there are these endless questions about competition and how Netflix could ultimately get slammed because of it.feedback

Jim Cramer

All I care about is an expansion of the ecosystem that people pay for to be part of what I call 'the Apple club'. Any sign that the service revenue stream has the potential to be greater than a Fortune 50 company instead of a Fortune 100 company, which is what they use lately – putting it above the $28 billion level that is a Fortune 100 [company]– that would cause the stock to run after the earnings print. FANG's back, but this time it's F-A-A-N-G; and while the spelling is tortured, the story is anything but.feedback

Jim Cramer

You should know that the average effective corporate tax rate is already 19 percent, so it may not be as sweeping as it seems. Plus, there are a lot of investors on the sidelines waiting for this market to come down to a more reasonable price. What happens if so many companies are suddenly making more money because they have a lower tax rate? I bet it would force billions and billions of dollars into the stock market from the sidelines in a virtuous circle of wealth creation.feedback

Jim Cramer

A two-year tax cut? That's not going to change much of anything. [It's] kind of like a tax holiday – maybe you get some one-off special dividends like the one that Costco just gave you, but that's it.feedback

Jim Cramer

There's a perception that if companies use this money to buy back stocks or boost their dividends, the money's basically wasted because it doesn't create jobs. But it certainly would create more wealth for you, the shareholders.feedback

Jim Cramer

Like so many companies, Disney's already awash in cash. It's not like they need more capital to expand. In fact, just today we heard that the company may have laid off as many as 100 people at ESPN – I don't expect a corporate tax cut will get them re-hired.feedback

You buy Kimberly-Clark when it gets hit. Hasbro's developed a very different model from Mattel's. It's more experiential, and it does a huge amount of business selling Disney toys, and given that we've got a new 'Star Wars' movie later this year [and] maybe a couple of 'Star Wars' movies down the line, I bet it's a winner, not a loser like Mattel.

One large company buying another large company really just isn't good business sense. Being categorized as a media entertainment company could possibly increase Apple's multiple, but most of the criticism of Apple revolves around its slowing growth, and Disney is growing at a slower place. One would more likely expect an acquisition to increase the growth rate rather than lower it.feedback

Now Disney's stock trades up on both good and bad days, even as the ESPN woes haven't really been stemmed. It's a textbook case of the market getting comfortable with a negative, baking it into the stock, and then starting to process other positives. I think people are looking for long-term bargains and they've settled on Nike as one with staying power. I think these two are rallying because their consistency had somehow made them persona non-grata in the wake of the election as we rushed for first the banks, then the materials and then the industrials.

We started out with an evil female villain and an innocent female heroine and the ending involved a big epic battle with snow monsters that Elsa had created as her army. It wasn't satisfying. We had no emotional connection to Elsa – we didn't care about her because she had spent the whole movie being a villain. We weren't drawn in. The characters weren't relatable.feedback

It is about shrewd intellectual property licences too. Can Paramount, or any studio, find un-utilised IP out there. There is probably a gold mine or two that has been over-looked or yet to be discovered. Look at the more recent success of teen/young adult books converting rapidly into new titles, such as Hunger Games and Maze Runner.feedback

Richard Broughton

That has been the big issue at Paramount which has a mediocre set of franchises. The reduction in output of films has led to a reluctance to take risks. That has to be reversed to create a successful studio if you are stuck in a rut of making average films. That takes guts.feedback

Brian Wieser - Pivotal Research Group

It's like Disney in reverse. Whether Paramount's lack of success and growth has been by design, ill fortune or incompetence it is hard to know from the outside. To be successful you want a bunch of tentpole films that you can rinse, repeat and cycle through again. The downside of making movies is that it still requires throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks.
