The Walt Disney Studios


President, Motion Picture Production

Bailey’s strategy of producing live-action re-imaginings of iconic Disney films may not be the most creatively challenging path for the studio, but it’s certainly lucrative, as evidenced by the grosses of recent releases such as “The Lion King” ($1.36 billion), “Aladdin” ($1.03 billion), “Beauty and the Beast” ($1.26 billion) and “The Jungle Book” ($966 million). Even the relative disappointment “Dumbo” managed to bring in more than $353 million worldwide. Upcoming cinematic projects include the Niki Caro-directed “Mulan,” Dwayne Johnson in “Jungle Cruise” and “The Little Mermaid” starring Melissa McCarthy. He’s also spearheading the development of original content for the new Disney Plus streaming service, including a live-action version of “Lady and the Tramp” and the Christmas movie “Noelle, led by Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader.
