Disney isn’t wasting any time when it comes to integrating Fox properties into its marketing following the $71.3 billion Disney-Fox merger that was finalized March 21. Major Fox properties “The Shape of Water,” “Deadpool,” “The Simpsons,” “Avatar,” and “Atlanta” have already been added to the official The Walt Disney Company banner on the company’s website. If Disney was going to prominently feature any Fox properties on its official banner, it makes sense it would do so with a recent Best Picture Oscar winner (“The Shape of Water”), a $2 billion franchise (“Avatar”), a record-breaking television series (“Simpsons”), and more. With the Disney-Fox merger finalized, the Mouse House now owns film division 20th Century Fox and will distribute such tentpoles as James Cameron’s forthcoming “Avatar” sequels. The merger has given Disney control of blockbuster properties such as “Deadpool” and “X-Men,” in addition to their in-house mega-franchises “Star Wars” and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Walt Disney Company banner puts newly-acquired major Fox properties opposite Disney-owned “Star Wars,” “Captain Marvel,” “Good Morning America,” and “Frozen” to make clear what a dominant force Disney is in the aftermath of the Fox acquisition.

The news was announced the day after the merger. Fox 2000 was well known for producing mid-budget dramas for adults and specialized audiences, including “Hidden Figures,” “The Hate U Give,” “The Thin Red Line,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Walk the Line,” “The Fault in Our Stars,” “Joy,” and “Life of Pi.” Major layoffs of Fox executives have also struck in the aftermath of the merger, including Fox 2000 head Elizabeth Gabler, president of worldwide marketing Pam Levine, domestic distribution chief Chris Aronson, and chief creative officer Tony Sella, among others. Sella was behind the production and release of over 400 Fox titles, including “Avatar.” Next up for Disney is the release of Tim Burton’s “Dumbo” on March 29 and “Avengers: Endgame” on April 26.

20th Century Fox is officially owned by Disney, but not everything — or everyone — is coming with it. A day after the $71.3 billion acquisition was made official, one Fox imprint has already been axed: Fox 2000, which recently produced “Hidden Figures” and “The Hate U Give” and was previously responsible for producing the likes of “The Thin Red Line,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Walk the Line,” “The Fault in Our Stars,” “Joy,” and “Life of Pi,” among many others. Fox 2000, overseen by Elizabeth Gabler, had been expected to make the transition; the future of her staff (six executives work under her) at Disney is uncertain.

Also made redundant were Jim Fielding, president of consumer products and innovation for Fox Television Group and Twentieth Century Fox Film; Heather Phillips, executive VP and head of domestic publicity; Mike Dunn, president of product strategy and consumer business development; Julie Rieger, chief data strategist and head of media; Twentieth Television president Greg Meidel; and 20th Century Fox corporate communications executive VP Dan Berger. Among the Fox projects slated for release this year are Fox 2000 production “The Woman in the Window” from Joe Wright, James Gray’s “Ad Astra,” and James Mangold’s “Ford v. Ferrari.” They will now be shepherded by different marketing executives amid the studio shake-up.

Last week, it released “The Aftermath,” with upcoming projects including “Tolkien,” “Jojo Rabbit,” and “Lucy in the Sky.” It was estimated last year that, once the sale became official, Disney and its subsidiaries, which include Marvel and Pixar, would control 40 percent of the box office.

EDreams flamed out shortly after its IPO, but it shouldn’t have been a surprise for those who had done their due diligence. A business that had grown at triple-digit rates during its early phase when backed by VC, and at a double-digit pace when owned by PE partners, was only growing at single-digit numbers after its merger with GO Voyages and Opodo. This is what the public was buying at the time of the IPO, even if was not priced like that: a slow growth business.
