The Walt Disney Studios


Co-Chairman / Chief Creative Officer

As Disney Studios’ top exec, Horn is the arguably the most powerful man in Hollywood other than Disney corporate boss Bob Iger, overseeing the studio’s film, music and theater groups as well its global marketing, distribution, communications and human resources. With the completion of Disney’s purchase of 21st Century Fox’s film assets in March, Twentieth Century Fox, Fox and Blue Sky Studios were put under his purview, alongside earlier acquisitions Pixar and Lucasfilm. This summer, Disney became the first and only studio to cross the $8 billion mark at the box office, and that number will balloon with the studio’s slate of fall 2019 releases, including “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” “Ford v. Ferrari,” “Frozen 2,” “Spies in Disguise” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”
