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

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. Memo to the companies that report in the following three days: will you stop it, please? Move your quarters. We can't focus on all of you. There's always someone itching to sell this thing. Maybe then we wait to see, and buy.feedback

J. Michael Roddy - Walt Disney World Resort

Disney's Hollywood Studios is the home of Star Wars. If you want to play in the Star Wars world, this is where you need to come.feedback

Sasha Farber

Because I'm scared. Sometimes I feel like in practice, you get super excited and and I just like – slow down.feedback

Sasha Farber

I think Simone is finding her voice. She's standing on her own two feet, just like Moana did.feedback

Nick Viall

The outfit I'm wearing, as you'll find out, is goofy and playful. Last week was obviously sexy and sensual with the rumba, and this week's jazz, and it's just playful and goofy. I feel like I'm getting better and better. I'm really hoping that I'll have a chance to stick around and see how much better I can maybe get.feedback

Nick Viall

It was really awesome to be able to incorporate Vanessa and have her be a part of the end of the dance and just put a really nice bow on what, for me, was I think my best week.feedback

Ethan Klein

It's getting so bad that you can't even speak your mind or be honest without fear of losing money and being not 'brand-friendly'. YouTube is on the fast track to becoming Disney vloggers: beautiful young people that wouldn't say anything controversial and are always happy.feedback

Jake Stevens

The collectibility of show exclusives has definitely gone through the roof.feedback

Paul Southern

Some fans buy every figure made and various poses of the same character.feedback

Jim Cramer

The fact is that if you buy Disney's stock on this, I'd tell you that you might as well believe in Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and Han Solo and Captain Marvel and anybody else in the stable. The only thing that's really accomplished by this kind of speculation? The short-sellers will be afraid to bet against Disney's stock because of newfound fears of a takeover lurking. It really does put a bid underneath, simply because it was just too juicy to ignore.feedback

Steven Cahall - RBC Capital Markets

Like 'Aladdin,' like 'Lion King,' the story is fiction. Apple hasn't done any big deals like this, although the company did say in one conference call that they're open to them.feedback

Erin Gibbs - S&P Global

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

Amit Daryanani - RBC

AAPL's focus on services and its inability (so far) to replicate its music/iTunes strategy into content/media make acquiring DIS logical in our view. This is particularly true if AAPL can access $200B+ in offshore cash via repatriation holiday.feedback

Mollee Gray

It happened on April 1, 2016 … but wasn't an April Fools joke. Jeka brought in her family, my family and closest friends to L.A. to be a part of the surprise.feedback

Amit Daryanani - RBC

We have seen increased discussions among investors regarding 'How could AAPL gain scale in media/content and what could it do with potential cash repatriation? We see a confluence of events that make an acquisition of DIS a 'greater than 0 percent' probability event (while odds are low). AAPL's focus on services and its inability (so far) to replicate its music/iTunes strategy into content/media make acquiring DIS logical in our view.feedback

Alex Baillie

What we knew about working with Singapore previously was that the infrastructure here is world-class, all the facilities are exactly what we needed to deliver events of a certain quality. The fandom has been growing quite organically for a long time…and the themes of Star Wars are as relevant today as it was 40 years ago.feedback

Azmi Danuri

There's something in Star Wars for all of us, whether it be about good versus evil, space battles, feisty princesses or interstellar politics…the appeal transcends borders, age and gender.feedback

Azmi Danuri

We haven't had a Star Wars event of this scale in Singapore since 2005.feedback

Tyler Baltierra

Throwback to when Nova met her birth sister Carly for the very first time! #MyGirls.feedback

Drew Borst - Goldman Sachs Group

Beauty and the Beast should be tailwind to consumer product and studio content licensing based on its strong box office performance and positive consumer reactions.feedback

Sofia Carson

We wanted [the video] to be really reminiscent of the record and the record is about beauty, not as a physical concept or what we look like in the mirror, but who we are the inside.feedback

Britney Spears

I am so thrilled. I'm never hosted an award show but I've always wanted to… It's going to be a special show.feedback

Lesly Ramirez

It always lifts my spirit. Even when I am tired, once I have this experience, it's like this just made my day, . The children, they are so excited to see you, every single time. It's so hard not to cry. They have these dire situations, and they are just so resilient. They inspire me.feedback

Cole Dooley

My daughter just thought this was the coolest thing. She's not typically hugely into princesses, but she thought it's the coolest thing that Cinderella came to our house.feedback

Kierra Brown

There were so many similarities in that character's story that related to my life. It was about this princess from New Orleans who has a dream of owning her own restaurant but she grows up in a poor environment. I grew up in a single parent home – my father passed away when I was 3 – and in a not-so-nice community. I saw my mother struggle and work so hard to ensure my brother, my siblings and me could have a better life. What that story told me was that if you work hard enough, you can achieve your dreams.feedback

Toby Young

The principle he's standing up for – and which he's worked himself up into a lather of moral indignation about – is his right to massively inconvenience his daughter's teachers just so he can go on a family holiday when the costs of overseas travel are lower. Not such a noble cause after all.feedback

Ian Strafford-Taylor - FairFX

Time and time again families are hit hard financially when it comes to taking a holiday together outside of term time. Parents understand supply and demand and may expect to pay a bit more during the holidays but some of these hikes are nothing short of shocking.feedback

James Corden

Look, everyone thinks they can Carpool Karaoke. Everyone thinks they've got what it takes. He's got to show me. He's got to earn the right to do it.feedback

James Corden

He's the greatest basketball shooter of all time, he's unbelievable a mini-golf, he's incredible at air hockey, he's great at the dance game, he's good at all games as far as I can work out, he's a really nice guy plus he taught me an amazing noodle soup that I'm going to cook tonight. He's amazing. I hate him.feedback

Wayne Rooney

I can't reveal what's going to happen, I'm sworn to secrecy. I'm definitely going to get booed though. My flight back to Manchester isn't until Tuesday too, so I'm going to spend Monday at Disney World. I can't wait.feedback

Jim Cramer

Senior growth is back, and even though each of these stocks has its blemishes, they're being airbrushed one by one. I think the picture that's left seems quite rewarding, and I bet it lasts beyond the incredibly great first quarter of 2017.feedback

Jim Cramer

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. Now, they seem peerless.feedback

Jim Cramer

It's all being done on faith, not unlike Disney, and it's working, as the stock of Starbucks has been climbing on both good days and bad ones.feedback

Archie Meguro

Old-school metal has always been very prevalent in our marketplace and so I thought just kind of a mixing of the cultures, of taking Disney and making it into metal versions, seemed like a cool idea.feedback

Dwayne Kratt

We have to be able to serve Guinness at this brewery. It's kind of like telling Walt Disney World, You can have all your tourist destinations, but you can't have Mickey.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.feedback

Peter Del Vecho

Elsa was a self-proclaimed Snow Queen, but she was a villain and pure evil. When we started off, Anna and Elsa were not sisters. They weren't even royal. So Anna was not a princess.feedback

Tameka Tiny Harris

Everyone had to come dressed to match the theme, so there was a lot of mouse ears. It was so amazing to have all of her friends and family there to celebrate such a milestone. Heiress is our 'lucky 7' and has so much love around her. It was a great day!feedback

Jane Sydenham

Most of them time you'd invest in a managed fund for a child, but that is not very engaging, it is too abstract for them to understand.feedback

Jane Sydenham

My son was looking up the share price quite regularly and he was quite angry with me. He said: 'You should have sold it and taken the profit'.feedback

Darius McDermott - Chelsea Financial Services

A one-year old should not be invested in cash – they should be invested in the stock market via a fund.feedback

Sheila Nicholl - Schroders

We have a culture and attitude that it is OK not to understand money. Until we get to the stage where it is socially unacceptable to say we don't understand money and investing, we will continue to have this problem.feedback

Jane Sydenham

When we watch a Disney film my daughter asks if it's good for her shares. I bought Amazon because they see those brown packages coming through the door and Disney because they are consumers of all things Disney. In the end it's important they have some understanding that if you are patient you'll benefit. If they can relate it to something they can touch and see, and businesses where they are customers, it means something.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

Brand recognition will get you far. The real test is: How do critics and audiences respond to that film? You still have to deliver a solid movie that will entice people to spend their hard-earned money to go see something that they already know, or already know about. With 'Beauty and the Beast' there have been decades of goodwill and the Disney brand and so many more elements going into it than just the intellectual property. Disney makes it look easy. Others have had more challenges.feedback

Brittany Reno

It spun around and took a nose dive down the wing came down over us the wind carried it over into the field.feedback

Michael Useem

Finding someone who understands entertainment and can run something that large, work across huge national divides, and understands everything from television to trinkets -- that's a tall order.feedback

Laura Martin - Needham

It's one of the hardest jobs in business. I think it's a negative that [the extension] is not longer, but it's a positive that we've got him another year. It's a double-edge sword.feedback

Bob Iger

There were a few things that happened [that were] significant in Han Solo's life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee, that will happen in this film. But you'll also discover how he got his name. In Rogue One we created digitally a few characters. One had been an actor who actually passed away and was in an earlier Star Wars film. We're not doing that with Carrie.feedback

Bob Iger

[The film] picks up Han Solo when he was 18 years old and takes him through to when he was 24. There were a few things that happened [that were] significant in Han Solo's life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee, that will happen in this film. But you'll also discover how he got his name. Carrie appears throughout [Episode] VIII. We are not changing the film to deal with her passing. Her performance remains as it is. In Rogue One, we had some digital characters. We are not doing that with Carrie.feedback

Bob Iger

I've seen [Episode VIII] and VIII is quite good. It picks up where VII left off. We're really excited about it. I can't disclose much about because that's not what we do.feedback

Bob Iger

We are not changing [Episode] 8 to deal with her passing. Her performance remains as it was in 8.feedback

Bob Iger

Leading this great company is a tremendous privilege, and I am honored to have been asked to continue serving as CEO. I am confident that Disney's best days are still ahead, and I look forward to continuing to build on our proven strategy for growth while working with the Board to identify a successor as CEO and ensure a successful transition.feedback

Bob Iger

There are a few significant things that happen in Han Solo's life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee [editor's note: CHEWBACCAAAAA!] that will happen in this film. But you will also discover how he got his name. We're starting talk about what could happen after Episode IX. About what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories.feedback

Noelle Marion - Hong Kong Disneyland

It all started years ago when my college roommate and I somehow stumbled upon a Google Image search of the Beast costumes.feedback

Anthony DiClemente

I think we're out of the woods on traditional cord cutting. Because these newer bundles like YouTube TV and the soon-to-be launched Hulu will include ESPN. What I'm incrementally concerned about, actually, is advertising, because ratings on the shoulder programming, like SportsCenter, have really rolled over. So even though we took up the overall earnings estimate, our ESPN advertising estimate went lower.feedback

Anthony DiClemente

I just think at a higher level, [Disney's studio segment] really demonstrates the consistency and the global power of the Disney film studio. As a result, we took up our target price on the stock, which is a great buy. Look, this is the biggest ever March box office opening, you know, in history. This is the seventh biggest opening weekend of all time. We were looking for $120 million, and it did $170 [million].feedback

Walt Disney

It is an unprincipled attempt to lay claim to a successful film he didn't create, and we will vigorously defend against it in court.feedback

Gary Goldman

In the big city, the heroes come up against strong, powerful, and entrenched bosses who want to maintain control over the heroes. The heroes are obsessed with their work and go to extreme lengths in pursuit of success, even taking principled stances in defiance of their bosses. The heroes have partners who help them achieve success. But success goes to the heroes' heads and they publicly offend others and alienate their partners, exhibiting their own prejudices. This triggers a job crisis, resulting in the heroes losing their dream jobs and hard-won statuses.feedback

Gary Goldman

The heroes work to achieve a career dream that their parents specifically discourage. They go to academies where they excel, achieve recognition for their work, and earn the opportunity to go to the big city for their dream jobs.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

As quote-unquote controversies go, this was a real tempest in a teapot. This obviously had zero impact on the movie. In fact, those who raise awareness of a movie for whatever reason are generally only helping that movie do better business. I don't think that was going to dissuade anyone except the most narrow-minded from seeing this film.feedback

David Scott

This one is still quite fresh. … You can just feel it's a big, loving family that lived through enough to crush anyone, frankly. You're rooting for them. It's a bittersweet ending, it's not a Disney ending, but you do end up rooting for some rapprochement in the near-term future that will allow everyone to embrace this version of the modern family.feedback

Bas Lansdorp - Mars

Buying into Mars One, is buying into content, while buying into Boeing or Airbus is buying into technology. I think that throughout last 30 years, we see that content has become more valuable. High impact content like the Olympics, Formula 1 and big blockbuster movies are going up in value. That is exactly what Mars One is. It's comparable to the exploration of the earth, be it Europeans migrating to the U.S. on a one way boat ticket or maybe a better comparison is people in west of Africa settling across the world on all continents in 40,000 years.feedback

Bas Lansdorp - Mars

It will change the world more than we can imagine right now. It will bring people on earth closer together, it will inspire people to pursue more education to start a new company, inspire kids to become astronauts again. The most important thing is that by going to Mars, which is the second best place for humans to live in the solar system, by going to Mars and showing Earth how bad the second best planet is, will change the way humans look after this planet.feedback

Josh Gad

The one in Sleeping Beauty has so much to prove and doesn't have the help of seven dwarves.feedback

Paige O'Hara

I made sure I wore blue. I wore blue to audition for Belle. I wore blue for both premieres, and she ended up in blue in the movie, so it's kind of a lucky color.feedback

Bill Condon - Disney

LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. He's confused about what he wants. It's somebody who's just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh [Gad] makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that's what has its payoff at the end, which I don't want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.feedback

Luke Evans

I met Bill Condon, the director, and I got to sing the song. I knew I could do it. I knew I could sing. I knew I could do this role I was hungry to play, and I was also desperate to sing live on a performance stage, and this was it, and it just went really well.feedback

Luke Evans

It was very weird because for a long a time no one really recognized me from my films, but The Hobbit has totally changed that and I've had some really special moments, especially with youngsters. It's good for people to look at me and think this guy is doing his thing and enjoying what he's doing and successful at it and living his life. And that's what I'm doing and I'm very happy.feedback

Oswald Fudge

One of the fathers said, My daughter's wish was to go to Disney World, but even if we don't get there, it's okay. We've had such a good time here, she's not sad.feedback

Jim Cramer

That's real cash that can't be spent elsewhere, but a smartphone is simply indispensable. An [Apple] iPhone is the most prized and cherished purchase any American makes after his car or home. So what does pry the typical consumer off the couch? Trips to theme parks, hence why Six Flags, Cedar Fair, Disney and Comcast's Universal theme parks are jammed to the gills. Or cruise ships, because they create experiences.feedback

Alessia Cara

I'll probably just watch a movie, , and eat some bread. I always eat bread on planes. And go to sleep, or maybe write some songs on my laptop.feedback

Michael Morris - Guggenheim Partners

I don't think he's completely irreplaceable, but certainly leaves big shoes to fill.feedback

Abdul Hamid

'We have approved it but there is a minor cut involving a gay moment. It is only one short scene but it is inappropriate because many children will be watching this movie.'.feedback

Bill Condon - Disney

LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. He's confused about what he wants. It's somebody who's just realising that he has these feelings. Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it and that's what has its pay-off at the end, which I don't want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie. I didn't give it a second thought, then at the preview, the [Disney] chairman told me that it was the first and second interracial kiss in a Disney movie.feedback

Jacqueline Durran

What we did with that silhouette was to try and give it a lightness and a fluidity and very little structure, so that Emma didn't feel inhibited or trapped by it. It was as light as it could possibly be, but at the same time had enough movement to work for the gown. It's very wearable and it doesn't have such a big skirt.feedback

Jacqueline Durran

We took elements of those 18th century things and added them to Belle. So her pockets, for instance, are an 18th century thing. It's just that people didn't wear them outside like she does. I would take elements that were historical and bring them with a twist.feedback

Jacqueline Durran

[We looked at] how much shine the yellow had; how matte the yellow was; whether the fabric had the texture; what tone the yellow was. Sometimes what you thought was the right yellow would be completely wrong once you camera tested it.feedback

Demi Lovato

We're totally gonna do it. It'd be like American Pie meets Disney Channel… It's going to happen.feedback

Angela Flournoy

In 'F.U.B.U.' [Solange] Knowles doesn't just eschew the white gaze for the sake of creating her art; she performs that rejection in song, to pull her black listeners close. It's a rhetorical invitation for black folks to grab a chair and settle in for real talk about lives like theirs. To her white listeners (who are listening, after all), she offers a tongue-in-cheek indictment as consolation: 'Don't feel bad if you can't sing along / Just be glad you got the whole wide world.feedback

James Cameron

It took us four-and-a-half years to make one movie and now we're making four. We're full tilt boogie right now.feedback

James Cameron

Well 2018 is not happening. We haven't announced a firm release date. What people have to understand is that this is a cadence of releases. So we're not making 'Avatar 2.' We're making 'Avatar 2,' 3, 4 and 5. It's an epic undertaking.feedback

Walt Disney

I'm glad that people are protective. That means they are invested.feedback

Sean Bailey - Walt Disney Pictures

We feel a pretty tremendous obligation to the animated classics, and part of that means asking ourselves, before work even gets started on the new films, What is the contract each one has with the audience?' With the older classics, what people seem to remember are emotions. But 'Beauty' is the first from the renaissance. People really know it chapter and verse.feedback

Joe Jonas

Nick and I go to the gym together once and a while. It's really funny to see. That's where we get competitive.feedback

Joe Jonas

Do the graduating days, make it kinda dark. An adult film. Well, not an adult film. An R-rated film. We've joked around about the idea a couple times.feedback

Jacqueline Durran

Though we didn't completely take blue out of the village, Belle is distinct within the town as the only one who wears a column of blue.feedback

Leatrice Eiseman

It's dependable. It's reliable. It might cloud up, but we know it's there.feedback

Josh Gad

Never judging a book by its cover. And you have a character in Gaston who uses his charm offensive to whip other people into a frenzy to go and attack somebody they've never met. Somebody that's different. Somebody that only represents a danger because [Gaston] says that he represents a danger.feedback

Luke Evans

Fear is not a good thing to fuel, and Gaston is responsible for that. But he fails – he fails miserably, and everybody finds love. Everyone!feedback

Josh Gad

There is so much fear out there of that which we don't understand that which we don't know.feedback

Bill Condon - Disney

In the 1991 film, Belle was a real breakthrough among Disney heroines. But obviously a lot has happened in 25 years. We wanted to make sure that she remained a feminist figure and someone who looks to the future.feedback

Matt Cain

It may have been a long time coming but this is a watershed moment for Disney. By representing same-sex attraction in this short but explicitly gay scene, the studio is sending out a message that this is normal and natural - and this is a message that will be heard in every country of the world, even countries where it's still socially unacceptable or even illegal to be gay.feedback

Emma Watson

If you had told me when I was five – which was probably around the age that I was watching [Beauty and The Beast] on repeat – that I would one day get to play Belle I don't know what I would have done.feedback

Hasan Piker - The Young Turks

For the most part my generation has left cable. We're not going to come back if you buy Snapchat or Disney buys Maker. Snapchat may become the main entertainment platform for my generation.feedback

Josh Gad

(Director) Bill Condon did an amazing job of giving us an opportunity to create a version of LeFou that isn't like the original ... but that makes him more human and makes him a wonderfully complex character to some extent. And there's a moment at the end of the film that I don't want to ruin ... because I want the surprise to be intact, but I'm very proud of it. I think it's an incredible moment and it's subtle, but I think it's effective.feedback

Sarah Kate Ellis

It's a wonderful step forward. And this is incredibly important for the youth of today. They need to see themselves reflected in the media they consume. More and more, as studios want to appeal to youth audiences, they're going to have to include LGBTQ story lines and characters.feedback

Audra McDonald

The thing is, Disney's not doing anything all that revolutionary. LGBTQ people have always existed, interracial couples have always existed. And now they're shining light on it. So they're just representing the world the way it actually is and I think that's spectacular and necessary.feedback

Josh Gad

They're used to my voice, but they're a little confused about the fact that I look like a psychopath on the poster.feedback

Josh Gad

I haven't showed them [The] Wedding Ringer. I don't think it's appropriate. The only reason I'm sitting through this is to see how they react because I've seen it now twice, and I can't watch myself.feedback

Alexis Isabel Moncada

We're portraying princesses as this one form, even though every girl can be a princess. If I would have had that kind of representation as a kid, I wouldn't have felt so alone in it.feedback

Emma Watson

Belle really dominated and characterized a huge part of my childhood and my growing up. I was like, The first shot of the movie cannot be Belle walking out of this quiet little town carrying a basket with a white napkin in it,' . We need to rev things up!feedback

Emma Watson

When I finished the film, it kind of felt like I had made that transition into being a woman on-screen.feedback

Ian Miles Cheong - Twitter

Disney's making its first gay character with LeFou and he's a clownish sidekick who exists to prop up his straight best friend. Great job.feedback

Gabe Gordon

Influencers are a bit of a challenge that way because they're creating hundreds or thousands of hours of content, and they take down videos, too, so you have to go beyond the existing content that's published, really know the person and know what they've stood for throughout their career.feedback

Kristy Sammis

They're not coming to the table thinking about how a brand is going to react to their behavior. They care more about being themselves than what a brand thinks of them. There is really a microscope now on brands' values and value messaging because of the political state of the world right now. Brands can't really be completely silent, and they're being called out.feedback

Gabe Gordon

Brands need to start looking at working with influencers the same way they've approached celebrity and athlete endorsements. Most brands, when they're investing a certain level of money in people, they're doing full background checks, they're working with P.R. agencies to understand potential risks, they're doing audits of every piece of content they've been in or associated with.feedback

Paul Clarke - Ocado

There's hundreds of algorithms and pieces of machine learning at play in this warehouse, with about 8,000 of these containers on the move at any one time it's like choreographing traffic around a city and that requires an enormous level of complexity, use of big data, lots of sensing. So if a piece of conveyor has a problem, the systems have to route around it and find another way.feedback

Marty Brochstein

It would be unfair to expect the same kind of volume generated this time around by consumer products.feedback

James Pitaro - Disney

One of our top priorities is to expand the audience. We have a lot of confidence we will continue in that direction.feedback

Russ Lesser

We were just talking about maybe we ought to have a line of mermaid products by Body Glove.feedback

Felix PewDiePie Kjellberg

I think it's important to say something and I want to make one thing clear: I am in no way supporting any kind of hateful attitudes. I make videos for my audience. I think of the content that I create as entertainment, and not a place for any serious political commentary. I know my audience understand that and that is why they come to my channel. Though this was not my intention, I understand that these jokes were ultimately offensive.feedback

Felix PewDiePie Kjellberg

It is 2017 now. We're going to have to start separating what is a joke, and what is actually problematic.feedback

Felix PewDiePie Kjellberg

I was trying to show how crazy the modern world is, specifically some of the services available online. I picked something that seemed absurd to me – that people on Fiverr would say anything for 5 dollars.feedback

Michael Ng

Hasbro is a best-in-class toy company with a strong portfolio of entertainment-driven products including Marvel, Star Wars, Disney Princess, and Transformers.feedback

Alwaleed bin Talal - Kingdom Holding

We continue to have confidence in Disney and remain committed to investing in France.feedback

Vijay Jayant - Evercore ISI

Disney has a pro-inflation business model (advertising, theme park & resort pricing), is largely domestic, is a full taxpayer, has low leverage, and has relatively high capital expenditure levels. Broadly speaking, in considering the primary insinuations put forth by Congressman Ryan's tax reform blueprint ... Disney stands to be a significant beneficiary.feedback

Gregory So

Regionally there are a lot of amusement parks that have been established. The competition is very stiff.feedback

David Kretzmann

That is a risk for Disney and other companies. In this case, it's clear to remember that Disney is truly a global company. Obviously, the company has put a ton into Shanghai Disneyland…(and) Disney has had such close ties with the Chinese government and with the Chinese society as a whole to get to this point.feedback

Bob Iger

An all-out trade war with China would be damaging to Disney's business and to business in general. It's something I think we have to be very careful about. In fact, there was some uptick initially on Hong Kong attendance when Shanghai opened. And there seems to be an interesting growth in pride locally in Hong Kong, in that park. I guess their competitive spirits have, somehow or another, been stimulated.feedback

Jeffrey Immelt

We create great jobs here when we sell our products every place, and I think the president knows that. We don't have to go through Washington on our way to be global. We are global. We've got people all over the world.feedback

Jim Cramer

It's like Iger was saying, you want to sell Disney off of ESPN? Go ahead … I'll make more money off of you than you ever dreamed of. The valuations are pretty darned reasonable, but I have a hard time proving it to people because we are in an incredibly visceral, polarizing moment stemming from the election of a pro-business president who seems to rack up an incredible amount of baggage on a daily basis.feedback

Tim Nollen

Investors have clearly been very happy with Bob Iger's performance as CEO, and I think this comes as no surprise, really. He was due to retire in about 16 months, and I think that's too short a time frame to have somebody step into the role, whether internal or external. I think people will take it well knowing that he will likely be there for another two years, at least.feedback

Tim Nollen

On the one hand, having somebody who clearly comes from a digital world might be a very interesting and positive development for a company whose, in many people's opinion, largest issue is the digital distribution of its content. On the other hand, Disney is a very broad, diversified company. Digital media is clearly one important aspect of it, but there are lots of others when it comes to parks and consumer merchandise and film and others, so is she qualified to do that is another question.feedback

Steven Cahall - RBC Capital Markets

What we think is really getting better with ESPN is these new virtual cable distribution platforms. Hulu is set to launch soon, DirectTV now recently launched, and [Disney CEO] Bob Iger last night indicated that they're going to be on Google as well as some others. [Digital distribution] helps stabilize that base, it supports their traditional affiliate fees, so that's what unlocks the stock. BAMTech has the leading technology for concurrent streaming. And so if you think of how we might be watching live sports five or 10 years from now, chances are it will be very digital.feedback

Bob Iger

The other thing that's important is when all these new channels launch we're in all of their homes. The notion of a skinny bundle that excluded ESPN is not the case in the new world order.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. One – distributors. Two, consumers and three, advertisers. And the reason it's in demand is the brand is still strong, the product is still good and we've invested nicely to keep that product as high quality as possible. I think in today's world we have to be mindful of the number of commercial interruptions.feedback

Bob Iger

We believe that (digital TV services) is going to occupy a good part of the future. It's less expensive, easier to use, more mobile friendly.feedback

Bob Iger

An all-out trade war with China would be damaging to Disney's business and to business in general. It's something I think we have to be very careful about. It's a national destination in China already. Where we are as a nation is due to having an openness to the people of the world. It's incredibly important. I firmly believe that we cannot shut our borders to immigrants. I think a fair and just immigration policy is good for our country and good for our society.feedback

Michael Morris - Guggenheim Partners

It is significant, and investors will continue to look at the subscriber trends [in] that business for an indication of the future value of the company. If Mr. Iger, who by all measures has been a tremendous leader of the company, were to stay on for perhaps an additional two years, giving the company the opportunity to find a more qualified successor, I think that would be well received. But his shoes are incredibly big and will be difficult to fill.feedback

Michael Morris - Guggenheim Partners

They really have been focused on price, I think, to ... mitigate some of the challenges that come with attendance growth. But the intellectual property of the company is so strong, it continues to drive people into the parks. It's a capital-intensive business, but it's a tremendous business.feedback

Brian Goldner - Hasbro

We also felt like it really wasn't contemporary. It's not the way we look at our business to look at boys and girls anymore. So many of our brands are gender inclusive. If you play Nerf, you could be a boy or a girl. If you love 'Star Wars', you are a boy or a girl. You could be anybody.feedback

Brian Goldner - Hasbro

Hasbro's foresight to build brands led by storytelling, consumer insights and innovation, combined with the relentless execution of our Brand Blueprint including investments in entertainment and digital gaming, is driving our business and creating long-term strategic differentiators for Hasbro. We are well positioned for a successful 2017 and the continued advancement of Hasbro's brand-building capabilities for years to come.feedback

We have a process in the country where the antitrust division of the Justice Department decides these things and I can't think of an economic reason in the world why they'd block this one. But this administration is a whole new world and my instincts are to take the money and run.feedback

Benjamin Swinburne - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

With estimates largely reset and potential for ESPN to accelerate revenue growth against a more aggressively managed cost base, we upgrade DIS. Climbing out of FY17, we think distribution renewals for ESPN, new streaming bundles, and [a] strong film slate will accelerate EPS growth.feedback

Jim Cramer

CEO Bob Iger has multiple levers, including selling ESPN if he has to – although I think that would be a big mistake – in order to keep generating the 266 percent return that Disney gave you from Dow 10,000 to 20,000.feedback

Drew Borst - Goldman Sachs Group

Studio entertainment should benefit from what may [be] Disney's strongest ever film slate with 4 Marvel films, 2 'Star Wars' films and 3 animated family films. Notably, this will be the first time that Disney has ever had 2 'Star Wars' films in a single [fiscal] year with 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' (Dec. 15, 2017) and Han Solo 'Star Wars' Anthology (May 25, 2018).feedback

Steven Cahall - RBC Capital Markets

We're upgrading Disney as we see a turning point in investor sentiment around distribution revenue. DIS will enter a new round of affiliate deals late in FY17 [fiscal year 2017]. As new deals are done affiliate revenue growth will accelerate, providing the necessary optics for generalists and making it difficult for shorts to press.feedback

Mark Litwak

Most people in the movie industry don't think it's quite there yet. It's amazing what they can do, but it's not as good as a real actor. It still seems a bit artificial. Does Disney want to have people scrutinising how real that synthetic character is, rather than talking about the movie itself?feedback

Tim Seymour - Triogem Asset Management

Nike's management is some of the best. I think it's an oligopoly with they and Adidas. I think they will win again after really falling behind over the last couple months.feedback

The fact that we are talking about this shows how woven into the DNA of 'Star Wars' Carrie Fisher is. This is no small thing.feedback

Erik Davis - Movies.com

Based on the divisive way that fans have reacted to the effects in 'Rogue One' and considering that her death will still be pretty fresh, I think they won't go the CGI route. Unless, it's to touch up a tiny bit, a fraction of a scene. Sort of the way 'Fast and Furious' did it with Paul Walker. I think that that would be the only case that they would use effects.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

You have the creative talent behind the 'Star Wars' movies that will deal with this in a very respectful and appropriate way. Somehow you will have to address it and be respectful to Carrie Fisher's family, the fans and 'Star Wars,' in that order.feedback

Craig Erwicht - Hulu

The Disney brand is synonymous with beloved movies that the whole family can enjoy. Expanding our offering of top-rated kids and family programming has been a top priority for us, and we know viewers will love watching these films over and over again on our service.feedback

Marty Brochstein

Disney hadn't pushed it hard and licensees hadn't pushed it. They spent the next year catching up and trying to fill the demand.feedback

Jim Silver

It's in the minority share that kids will go to a movie more than once, because if you go to see a movie and you are a family of four, you're generally talking at least $40… you don't have the multiple viewings.feedback

Marty Brochstein

Frozen was the exception to the rule. There isn't a formula. A lot of the big successes have come in at least some what under the radar.feedback

Jim Silver

Kids love the [Disney princess] dresses. The dresses all play a significant part in the movie, it's not just that it's a dress you look at....The Cinderella dress was the special dress that was made for her by the Fairy Godmother that she danced with the prince and they fell in love. You look at the Belle dress. That was the dress she wore when she had her first dance with the Beast and again, they fell in love.feedback

Jim Silver

You play it out differently. When you played 'Frozen' you played out Elsa and Anna and the relationship between two sisters, which a lot of girls can relate to, and you also played out the love story between Anna and Kristoff. For 'Moana' you have the dolls, the boat, the demigod and the fish hook and that's about it.feedback

Marty Brochstein

To expect ['Moana'] to reach the heights of 'Frozen,' it would be really unusual to think that it could do that.feedback

I'm disappointed. But the film plays well with an older audience, and we hope that over Christmas, they'll have more free time available to go out and discover it.feedback

Barton Crockett - FBR Capital Markets

For Disney, Rogue One' will test whether Star Wars was a flash in the pan reboot success or a franchise that will have lasting appeal. Lasting appeal is crucial, because the argument for Star Wars upside is that this is a high-margin annuity in perpetuity, not just a lumpy hit-and-miss series.feedback

I think the whole story has been overblown and, quite frankly, it's silly. I have no reaction to [this] story at all. Frankly, this is a film that the world should enjoy. It is not a film that is, in any way, a political film. There are no political statements in it, at all.feedback

Bob Iger

We have taken a more bullish position on the future of ESPN's sub base. We think that while we were candid a year ago on sub losses, we believe that, to some extent, the causes of those losses have abated, notably the migration to smaller packages.feedback

Bill Abbott

We offer great value and we offer it at a very fair price to our distribution partners. They're saddled with sports rights that are through the roof and far more expensive than they have value, and they're looking for good value and networks that people actually like to watch, and we fit into both categories.feedback

I think the equity market has got that bug in their head that this is a longer term problem that he [Iger] has, and that somehow or other there is going to be some solution.
