Last quote by Bob Iger on Disney

We thought Twitter had global reach, a pretty interesting user interface, and a compelling way that we might be able to present and sell the content our company makes to the consumer. But we decided, ultimately, not to go in that direction. And we ended up – took us months to do it – buying a platform called BAMTech.feedback

We're going to make a significant investment in original Disney-branded television and motion pictures for just this platform.feedback

She brought her trademark strength, heart and humour to the role, which is a truly legendary performance. Carrie has been an iconic part of the Star Wars franchise from the very beginning and she will always hold a very special place in our hearts and the hearts of fans around the world. We all miss her talent, her wit and her friendship. This December we will release her final film – and as always, Carrie Fisher was an original and there will never be another. Certainly we're fortunate to have worked with her. We're incredibly proud to call her a Disney Legend.feedback

We have no projections about what's ahead except to say that this is being embraced by China in that 50 percent visiting are actually coming from outside the Shanghai region.feedback

We're pleased that we're off to such a great start but we've got more to do here first before we really talk about or think about doing more elsewhere in China but I think over time there's an inevitability to that.feedback

To our knowledge, we were not hacked. We had a threat of a hack of a movie being stolen. We decided to take it seriously but not react in the manner in which the person who was threatening us had required. We don't believe that it was real and nothing has happened.feedback

Is there life after Disney? I decided it's not worth it. I'd get stopped every once in a while by people who asked what it means.feedback

A given sport or a given team or a given region in a given period of time.feedback

I moved into the role after having studied under Michael for five years. I overlapped with him for six months between the time I was named and the time that he left. And it was–frankly, it was seamless.feedback

There are other things that are clearly at the top of my list in terms of priorities. It's continuing to grow the company in the digital direction, it's continuing to grow the company globally, it's continuing to solidify ESPN's future by doing the things that I talked about on this call and probably above all that, which is tied in part to succession, but it goes beyond succession, it's making sure that the leadership of this company across the board continues to be really strong.feedback

I'm not spending much time thinking about what I'm going to do next.feedback

I think there's way too much pessimism about ESPN because ESPN is still in demand from three constituents you want to be in demand the most from.feedback

We believe we're well positioned to contend with what we think is continued disruption in the business. We believe these new light pack options that include ESPN and over-the-top top platforms are the future and an asset to us. We will eventually be in a direct consumer business for ESPN products, and hope to launch one of our brand technology platforms before the end of year . We are actually confident in ESPN's future.feedback

There were a few things that happened [that were] significant in Han Solo's life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee, that will happen in this film.

We're not doing that with Carrie.feedback

In Rogue One, we had some digital characters. We are not doing that with Carrie.feedback

I've seen [Episode VIII] and VIII is quite good. It picks up where VII left off. We're really excited about it. I can't disclose much about because that's not what we do.feedback

We are not changing [Episode] 8 to deal with her passing. Her performance remains as it was in 8.feedback

Leading this great company is a tremendous privilege, and I am honored to have been asked to continue serving as CEO. I am confident that Disney's best days are still ahead, and I look forward to continuing to build on our proven strategy for growth while working with the Board to identify a successor as CEO and ensure a successful transition.feedback

There are a few significant things that happen in Han Solo's life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee [editor's note: CHEWBACCAAAAA!] that will happen in this film. But you will also discover how he got his name. We're starting talk about what could happen after Episode IX. About what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories.feedback

We make a point of revealing very little from our upcoming Star Wars films. We want to keep them secret. But we're making an exception today. We're going to show you an exclusive first look at what happens right after that scene, and that lightsaber being handed to its rightful owner.feedback

This is one of the proudest and most exciting moments in the history of the Walt Disney Co.feedback

As a parent and a grandparent, my heart goes out to the Graves family during this time of devastating loss. My thoughts and prayers are with them, and I know everyone at Disney joins me in offering our deepest sympathies.feedback
