I think it basically has to be someone with some studio experience. I’d prefer Josh stay in his role as there is about a 90% chance whoever would replace him would be a worse park exec. I don’t personally ‘know’ Dana well enough, but she seems to be the most likely pick in my eyes. With the most analogous routing to the roll as Eisner and Iger. This is also someone who has functionally had a career outside of Iger largely, riding that line between an internal/external candidate.

You are not serious people.

Someone with a ego that is satisfied with being the functional head of $DIS that does need to seek out his personal validation by masquerading as the lead creative of a single business unit of a much larger conglomerate. Stop seeking validation like Stuart Smalley.

If that's the case Staggs left Disney when the Board give him the big 🙅for the top job.

You want someone with as much disgust for the parks at 70% of the overall revenue as the failed weasel in the sweater they got now? High hopes

Why do I have to have a preference? The best I can hope for is some unlikely indifference regarding the parks and delegation. That though doesn’t mean I should just ignore history. Staggs is one the biggest, unsung architects of modern Disney.

My contention is that the overall management of TWDC is the worst it’s ever been…and we can trace the steps how we got here… So how would promoting anyone from within put them on more stable footing? Must be new math

Ahhh yes…the favorite boogieman…the office of strategic planning Two person team. Scott Stuber on the studio/ tv side. Molly looks way better on the red carpet than Willow
