BURBANK, CALIFORNIA: The Walt Disney Company announced that they were letting go of Bob Chapek as the CEO of Disney and bringing back the veteran Bob Iger to replace him. Iger is expected to "set the strategic direction for renewed growth" as per the report and reset the tone of the company that has been financially struggling since Chapek made certain rash decisions. However, the former CEO is not going empty-handed.

Bob Iger had been the CEO of Disney for over 15 years and the company witnessed substantial growth under his wing. On the flip side, the Mouse House lost a full one-third of its value under his tenure as reported by Reuters. When Iger stepped down from the role in 2020, he received a whopping compensation of $45.9 million. Chapek, on the other hand, would be getting a $23 million exit package and it could be even more if share prices bounce back up after falling more than 40 percent over the past year. Under Chapek's management, the company pursued an aggressive campaign against Marvel star Scarlett Johansson, managed to ruin relations with Florida's Governor Ron DeSantis, and was in a constant public feud. Ever since the 71-year-old returned, the share price rose to $97.58, up 6.3%, which is what the fan call bringing the magic back.
