Star Wars Creator Explains Why He Has ‘Full Faith’ In Disney’s Future

He believes Iger is the right person to keep Disney making great movies and stories.

In a recent interview with CNBC, George Lucas shared his thoughts on the big fight happening inside Disney.

Disney is currently in a bit of a tug-of-war with some of its investors. One of these is a very rich man named Nelson Peltz, and he wants a seat at the table where big decisions are made. But George Lucas stands firmly with Bob Iger and says that he is the right person to lead the company.

As per CBR, Lucas believes that making the kind of magic you see in movies is not something just anyone can do:

“Creating magic is not for amateurs. When I sold Lucasfilm just over a decade ago, I was delighted to become a Disney shareholder because of my long-time admiration for its iconic brand and Bob Iger’s leadership. When Bob recently returned to the company during a difficult time, I was relieved.”

He thinks that Disney can grow under Iger’s leadership:

“No one knows Disney better. I remain a significant shareholder because I have full faith and confidence in the power of Disney and Bob’s track record of driving long-term value. I have voted all of my shares for Disney’s 12 directors and urge other shareholders to do the same.”

Peltz Says He’s On the Way to Fix ‘Disney Wokeness’

Nelson Peltz has some ideas about changing Disney’s TV channels because fewer people are watching them. He also believes that Disney’s movies focus on delivering a message, not giving the audience some fun. On the other side, Bob Iger wants to focus on making Disney+ better and making sure the company spends its money wisely.

Other big names like the family members of Walt and Roy Disney and Jamie Dimon also think Iger is the right choice. They’re up against Peltz and some other investors who have different ideas about how to keep Disney successful.

The vote will be on April 3.
