Alan Horn Retiring as Disney Studios Chief Creative Officer
Alan Horn will retire as chief creative officer of Disney Studios Content, capping a successful nearly decade-long run at the Walt Disney Company. It was one that saw Horn stabilize the film operation after a tumultuous period when Rich Ross took the reins for three tumultuous years. Under Horn, Disney successfully integrated Marvel’s film operations, rebooted the “Star Wars” film franchise after buying Lucasfilm in 2012, and maintained its dominance in the animation space.

Horn had been expected to step down with Disney Chairman Bob Iger, a close ally who is leaving the company this December. Bob Chapek took over as CEO of Disney in 2020. Iger wrote in his autobiography that Horn was his best hire. It was also a decision that may have sparked regrets in the Time Warner empire. The company pushed Horn out as Warner Bros. chief, replacing him with Jeff Robinov, who exited the studio in 2013 after a stormy tenure.
