Short and thrilling cinematic movies are becoming increasingly popular day by day. Probably this is the exact reason Disney has agreed to merge with Maker Studios for the whooping $500 million. Maker Studios is an established company with incredibly strong online-video presence.
The online video network governed by Maker has more than 55,000 channels, nearly 400 million subscribers and the staggering 5.6 billion views per month. Probably this is the main reason Disney wants to expand their reach and enter the new frontier of short, digital videos. What is best about the contract between the two companies is the fact that If Maker achieves certain goals, Disney will add another $450 million to the initial offer.
According to Maker’s CEO Ynon Kreiz, Disney is a synonym to the world’s best entertainment and it’s the perfect partner for future collaborations.
We can only expect more epic entertainment from Disney in the near future.
