According to Bob Iger, Disney’s CEO, this partnership holds significant potential for Disney in the gaming and entertainment industry. Through this new platform, users will have the opportunity to play, watch, shop, and interact with characters and stories from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and other franchises within a newly developed entertainment universe.
