“To be able to benefit from Meghan’s ability to create expansive worlds and characters across our entire portfolio of brands is an incredible opportunity for (Hasbro),” said Stephen Davis, Hasbro’s executive vice president and chief content officer, in a statement. “Storytelling is at the center of our brand blueprint and Meghan will help us continue to advance our strategy of building deep connections and relationships with our consumers and audiences globally through rich content in all forms and formats – across digital, television, animated and live action films.”
