Finally, on December 14, 2017, Disney firmly solidified its position in the media world by announcing it would acquire the majority of 21st Century Fox, including Creator/20thCenturyFox (who, ironically, distributed the first six ''Star Wars'' films) and its divisions and television units, the FX Networks, the Fox Sports Regional Networks, and almost all of Fox's international assets from UsefulNotes/RupertMurdoch for $66.1 billion. If approved by regulators, the deal will give Disney a massive global foothold unparalleled by any other media company, ensuring its future for a long, long time.

The Walt Disney Company (commonly referred to simply as "Disney", so much so that in recent years it has begun crediting itself as such too) is the largest media group in the world[[note]]Comcast and Creator/{{Sony}} are technically larger, but their figures also include revenue from non-media assets[[/note]]. Chances are that this company has had some sort of impact to your life. You may have very likely heard the name "Disney" at least once, have at least watched one of its cartoons, or have seen a movie under their name. They're ''that'' influential to the field of entertainment.

Eventually, Roy E. Disney, Walt's nephew and others had enough with Eisner's escalating business blunders. This climaxed with him alienating Steve Jobs and his Pixar studio by insulting them by claiming that their upcoming film, ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', [[ItWillNeverCatchOn was sure to be a flop]] that would take them down a peg. After that film broke all box office records for feature animation and won an [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]], Eisner looked like a complete incompetent at the worst possible time with Disney's contract with Pixar being due to expire soon and Jobs loathing Eisner personally and eager to walk. To fix that calamity of losing such a valuable studio, the board of directors ousted Eisner and placed Robert Iger (previously head of ABC) in charge.

Unfortunately, the trio fell apart when Frank Wells was killed in a skiing helicopter accident and the moderator to Eisner's ego was removed. This led to infighting with Jeffrey Katzenberg who eventually left to form Creator/DreamWorks and Eisner assumed more control with the company declining with his increasingly inept hands, even as he made bold acquisitions like the Creator/{{ABC}} TV network. At the same time, the contracted computer animation house, Creator/{{Pixar}}, owned by Creator/SteveJobs, transformed feature animation with its astounding series of critically lauded smash hit animated features while Disney's in house cel-animated films were increasingly overshadowed. Even worse for Disney, the new field of computer animation allowed competitors to finally sidestep the AllAnimationIsDisney public prejudice and allowed new competitors to get their own piece of the pie, most notably Creator/DreamWorksAnimation[[note]]Lord Farquaad, the main antagonist of ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', one of [=DreamWorks Animation's=] first big hits, was reportedly [[TakeThat modeled after Eisner by Katzenberg]][[/note]].

The trio's faith in Disney's Animation proved a dicier proposition with the department's one grandfather feature film project, ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' proved a major flop. However, the much cheaper and more successful subsequent film, ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' in 1986 convinced the trio to give the animators a chance. This paid off handsomely as the expensive later film, ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' proved a sensation in 1988 and ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' in 1989 set off the [[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation Disney Renaissance]] with a series of spectacular blockbusters that brought the company more money and prestige than they ever dreamed. Meanwhile, the company made their own waves on TV with a new commitment to TV animation with superb big budgets and well done animated series like ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'', ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' dramatically raising the bar of what TV animation could be.

When the senior management finally fell to Walt's son in law, Ron Miller, in that same period, the company was its nadir with only the theme parks being consistently profitable. To his credit, Miller did make some positive moves like taking a chance with innovative films like ''Film/{{Tron}}'' and planned to create more adult oriented fare through the new branch, Creator/TouchstonePictures.
