The Walt Disney Co. Revamps Website as 21st Century Fox Deal Takes Effect

After the Walt Disney Co. closed its $71.3 billion acquisition of large parts of 21st Century Fox a few minutes after midnight east coast time, the company added their new properties to their website.

Images from The Simpsons, Atlanta and Deadpool now sit side by side with the likes of Fantasia, Toy Story, Star Wars and Avatar.

Under the terms of the mega-deal, Disney is adding the Fox film and TV studio, the FX networks, National Geographic, Indian TV giant Star India and Fox’s 30 percent stake in streaming service Hulu to its portfolio. Disney has increased its stake in Hulu to 60 percent, with Comcast owning 30 percent, and AT&T’s Warner Media 10 percent of the streaming service.
