In all, Walt Disney Co. shares are down 40% this year. However, the stock rose 8% after the announcement on Monday, November 21, of Iger’s appointment.

“It is with an incredible sense of gratitude and humility, and I must admit, a little in awe, that I write to you tonight with the news that I am returning to The Walt Disney Company as CEO,” Iger wrote in an email to employees.

On Friday, November 18, Iger was reportedly approached by board members about a possible return, after Iger left Disney late last year. Iger was CEO for 15 years before passing the role to Chapek in 2020.
