According to Hollywood Reporter, the last round of redundancies came this week. Job cuts are described as "widespread" and affect Disney studios. There is no information on how many employees have been affected by the redundancies allegedly affected by Disney and Fox Studios.

THR points out that Disney has a number of financial costs, including additional content and programming investments for its competitor Netflix Disney +. Not only that, but Disney says it spends about $ 24 billion over the next five years to modernize its theme parks and cruise lines.
