The Walt Disney Studios


Co-Chairman & Chief Creative Officer

Under Horn’s leadership, Disney has become the dominant force in movies, churning out block-
busters such as “Black Panther,” “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Incredibles 2.” The studio did have one miss, however — the failure of “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” which raises questions about Disney’s ability to fashion a cinematic universe out of stories of jedis and siths. As studio chairman since 2012, he leads Disney’s production, marketing and distribution for live-action and animated films and oversees the company’s music and live theater groups. Prior to Disney, Horn served as president and COO of Warner Bros. from 1999 to 2011. Horn, a Harvard Business School grad who got his start in brand management with Procter & Gamble, co-founded Castle Rock Entertainment in 1987. As of May 2019, he now shares his Chairman role with Alan Bergman, who was promoted from his role as President at Walt Disney Studios.
