Chapek’s time with Disney

Chapek was named the CEO of Disney in February 2020, according to The Associated Press. He replaced Disney CEO Bob Iger in the role.

Chapek’s tenure was met with an immediate problem — the coronavirus pandemic. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus led to Disney shutting down its parks, including Disney World and Disneyland. Many of Disney’s films were also pulled from theaters during the pandemic.

Normalcy appears to be returning as Disneyland is reopening at the end of April, and Disney’s blockbsuter films, like “Black Widow,” are set to hit theaters soon.
