Disney has brought 20th Century Fox's TV and film properties.

This deal makes Disney the Walmart of the film industry. They have many of the most popular characters and franchises under one banner and it will be incredibly difficult for other studios to compete with the joint offerings of Disney and Fox. When one company owns almost 40% of the box office revenue of 2017, it might just be impossible to compete.

“In the relentless drive to eliminate competition, big business has an insatiable appetite for consolidation. Disney and Fox have spent decades profiting from the oligopolistic control that the six major media conglomerates have exercised over the entertainment industry, often at the expense of the creators who power their television and film operations. Now, this proposed merger of direct competitors will make matters even worse by substantially increasing the market power of a combined Disney-Fox corporation. The antitrust concerns raised by this deal are obvious and significant. The Writers Guild of America West strongly opposes this merger and will work to ensure our nation’s antitrust laws are enforced.”
