The judge gave an update at San Diego Comic-Con saying he has a good chance of it paying off. The studio is now part of Disney, and Fox’s status in any new series relates to ownership. “We’re really focused on what new software we think can break out creatively, and that we also have a significant ownership stake in it, if we don’t fully own 100 percent of it,” Thorne said. And on a show like ‘King of the Hill’ that we love, there’s really no chance for us to have an ownership stake in that show. It’s not a move we can take as we develop the next wave of animation, where ownership is critical to the success of the series on the internet. the long term “.
