Well.. so Disney has just acquired Star Wars. I guess Mickey & gang can start wearing black capes with oversized helmets breathing heavily in ashmatic conditions. Big Grin

Jokes aside. Disney is very well received in China and if you can link piece to piece with China grooming to be the next consumer market...

For Singapore 5+ million disneyland won't come here we are way too small for them.

My impression is whever disney looking to setup franchise overseas must have at least 10-12 million population.

if you go to tokyo disneyland and tokyo disneysea every single day of the year is packed with visitors and all are mostly local japanese tourists of all ages.

And people are crazy about it young and old will buy disney apparel you will see adults ladies dress up like fairy tale princess go to disneyland alone unaccompanied by anyone.

Disneyland is to japanese like what macdonalds is to singapore I'm talking about the way they marketing.

Disney’s Iger Says Shanghai Resort Close to Breaking Even

Bloomberg News
June 16, 2017, 5:50 PM GMT+8 June 16, 2017, 9:35 PM GMT+8

Walt Disney Co.’s ambitious $5.5 billion Shanghai theme park is close to breaking even after its first full year of operations -- a mark none of its resorts have been able to hit in the last 30 years, said Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger.

“That’s an extraordinary achievement. I’m not sure we’ve ever done that,” said Iger in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Tom Mackenzie on Friday as the Shanghai Disney Resort celebrated its first anniversary. “After the first year, I’m pleased to say that prospects are really strong for continued success and continued growth.”

The park logged more than 11 million visitors earlier this week, Iger said. The Shanghai development, Disney’s first in mainland China and its largest foreign investment, throws the Burbank, California-based giant into the race to dominate the country’s $204 billion media and entertainment industry.

Disney is taking over Fox for US$52.4 Billion. What this means is that we will be able to see all Marvel superheros in the same movie and possibly at Disneyland Smile

Disney IMO is the ultimate content company, one that you can own forever.
