Disney Extends Alan Horn's Deal Into 2018


By Lucas Shaw

Disney has extended the contract of studio chief Alan Horn into 2018, the studio said Thursday. Horn, the former head of Warner Bros., joined Disney as chairman of Walt Disney Studios in 2012.

He oversees the production, distribution and marketing for all movies produced by Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm, as well as marketing and distribution for movies produced by DreamWorks and Touchstone Pictures.

The extension ensure Horn will oversee Disney's launch of new "Star Wars" movies, the first of which is scheduled to open at the end of 2015.

Horn has overseen Disney during a couple of stellar years, as Marvel supplied the studio with 'The Avengers," "Captain America," "Thor" and "Iron Man" and Pixar continued to produce box office hits. Disney's own animation studio has begun to rival its own in-house sibling, producing "Wreck-It Ralph" and "Frozen."
