Disney's shareholders meeting: 'Star Wars' on DVD, 'Captain America' and theme park prices

Walt Disney Co. had plenty to boast about at the company’s annual shareholders meeting in Chicago: record profits, huge ticket sales from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and for this weekend’s animated movie “Zootopia.” Chief Executive Bob Iger credited the company’s success to its acquisitions of Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel and Lucasfilm. He announced that Disney would add two new cruise ships to its fleet, begin construction next month on a “Star Wars” land at Disneyland, and that “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will be available for digital download on April 1. But Iger also fielded some pointed questions from investors about how Disney was responding to Wall Street’s anxieties over subscriber losses at ESPN.
