This is from last April, but Cartoon Brew did a nice mockup of the assets owned by Disney in a fun way, along with a small write-up.


Any specific context to this post? Or am I missing something?

The context is probably this "Disney blocks John Oliver’s new episode critical of India’s PM Modi" https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22415535

Someone was taken by surprise when they learned that Disney owns streaming service in India with 350 million users and the streaming services is just subsidiary of Disney owned Star India Private Limited who owns over 60 channels and "has 790 million viewers a month across India and more than 100 countries".


Weird timing tho with Bob Iger stepping down.

Probably in relation to some of the news relating to the John Oliver situation (currently on the front page):
