Disney Buys 21st Century Fox and Star Wars Pays for Itself

By: Amy Kawa

Just five short years ago, Disney purchased LucasFilm for just over $4 billion.  After this weekend’s box office sales from Star Wars: The Last Jedi were combined with the sales from The Force Awakens and Rogue One, the films’ sales have surpassed that $4 billion mark.  Sounds like a bargain to us!

In December, Disney also purchased some of 21st Century Fox’s assets for an estimated $52.4 billion, including X Men and Avatar, bringing more aspects of things Disney already has their hands in directly under their control.
