Bergman

Chairman, Studios Content

In December 2020, Bergman was named sole chairman of Disney Studios Content (formerly Walt Disney Studios), while Alan Horn settled into his final year at the studios as chief creative officer. The change reflects Bergman’s focus on some of the key manage­ment responsibilities connected with the Mouse House’s studio portfolio (including Pixar, Walt Disney Animation, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Searchlight), such as business affairs, finance, legal, labor relations, operations and technology. He was vital during the pandemic as the studios shifted dates and platforms for releases such as Pixar’s “Soul” and Marvel’s “Black Widow.” While president of the studio (2005-2019), he led the acquisition and integration of Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and the Fox film studios.
