Walt Disney Company Thinking About Purchasing Hasbro
There is a rumor that the Walt Disney Company is in talks to purchase Hasbro, the world’s largest toy and game company. Hasbro brings with it a significant amount of licences in addition to the lucrative merchandising, such as Transformers, G.I. Joe, Monopoly, Magic The Gathering, Dungeons and Dragons, Tonka, Nerf, Clue, Candyland, My Little Pony and almost everything you can imagine.
According to MTV, who first reported the news, “serious discussions are happening at the highest levels” between the two companies. Not to mention, Hasbro already has a relationship with Disney, developing toys and games based on several of their properties (Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel etc.) and has a long standing, albeit it rocky, relationship with Hollywood (Transformers, Battleship, etc.).
MTV Geek wrote about this possible major business acquisition, stressing that it’s still just being talked about, but that it could happen at any time.
Paramount already controls the rights to the two big male properties, Transformers and G.I. Joe, both with new movies in the works. If the deal follows the LucasFilm model, those rights would likely stay with that company, at least until some kind of contract runs out.
Universal also controlled the rights to a bunch of Hasbro properties, such as Clue, Ouija, Stretch Armstrong and Battleship, but famously dropped most of them and only released Battleship. Since then Hasbro has continued to develop films based on this properties (as well as others) while shopping them around for a new home.
If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
Winne the Pooh - A A Milne
A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
no matter how close or far apart you may be.
A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
