Hackers Have Apparently Stolen An Upcoming Disney Movie And Are Threatening To Release it


Big news people. Disney is apparently working with federal investigators after hackers have stolen an upcoming Disney movie. They've even demanded a ransom, which Disney Chief Bob Iger says they won't pay. This is all according to the Hollywood Reporter

Iger says:

The Disney chief said the hackers demanded that a huge sum be paid on Bitcoin. They are threatening to release five minutes of the film the first time and then in 20-minute chunks until their financial demands are met.

This is a pretty big deal. Disney has some pretty big movies that are on their way out, that includes a few Marvel movies (Disney owns Marvel). This summer Disney has "Cars 3" coming out not to mention "Spider-Man: Homecoming", and later in the year "Thor Ragnarok." The latest Pirates of the Caribbean film, "Dead Men Tell No Tales", comes out at the end of this month. 

Let's also not forget that Disney also owns LucasFilm, who does, you guessed it, Star Wars. Episode VII: The Last Jedi is out this December. Is it possible hackers got their hands on it?
