Default Re: Disney to Acquire 21st Century Fox

Analysis by me:

We all know Disney really wanted "A New Hope" and several Marvel characters (X-Men, Fantastic Four). And according to my research, they'll also earn worldwide rights to "Die Hard with a Vengeance" (Fox domestic; Buena Vista international), "Lincoln" and "Bridge of Spies" (Touchstone domestic; Fox international)

With the merger, there is hope that the Saban/Fox Kids library will be unearthed again.

Divestments:
They're going to divest several sports channels in the USA, Mexico and Brazil; the Sky cable provider [sold to Comcast], and A&E's European channels.

I really wanted the Disney/Fox merger to divest certain film rights, preferably to the North American or international distributor.
