The moves were announced Dec. 21 by Burbank-based Walt Disney Co. and will take effect on Jan. 1.
The changes follow an extensive restructuring by Disney Chief Executive Bob Chapek in October that shifted the entertainment giant's focus to streaming streaming services such as Disney Plus and Hulu. Bergman and Horn will both report to Chapek.
“It has been an honor to lead The Walt Disney Studios over the past eight-plus years, and I’m so grateful not only to Bob Iger for making it possible in the first place but to the Studios team, whom I find endlessly inspiring – I hope they are all as proud of what we’ve been able to do together as I am,” Horn said.
Under Horn and Bergman’s leadership, Walt Disney Studios set box office records by surpassing $7 billion globally in 2016 and 2018 and $11 billion in 2019.
