After Disney and Fox merger, Fox is developing a sequel to The Simpsons Movie, a Bob's Burgers film, and an animation/live-action Family Guy film. During the 10th anniversary of The Simpsons Movie, writer-producer Al Jean and director David Silverman hinted at a follow-up movie which was in the nascent stage.

In all probability, Walt Disney Co. and 21st Century Fox could be nearing a $60 billion merger deal, sources say.

A few days ago one was fed with the information that Walt Disney is in talks to buy 21st Century Fox. The news is already a big deal because more than 90% of mainstream entertainment production in the US is controlled by only five companies, and Walt Disney buying 21st Century Fox would reduce that number to four – because it would end the long running feud between Fox and Marvel over the film rights to several popular Marvel IPs, including the X-Men and Deadpool. However, there may be a potential spanner thrown in the works here, as a news has been broken that telco Comcast has approached 21st Century Fox, with an interest in acquiring the company’s ent
