Iger’s last day is in December 2021.

I think the EARLIEST we’ll hear about succession will be summer next year, with more substance bubbling up very early 2021.
The end if the 4th quarter for The Walt Disney Company is September 30. However, since the 50th anniversary of WDW is October 2021, I think you might be right. After that date, the next huge anniversary for the company is 2023 when they turn 100. Expect some big announcements about that at the next D23 in 2021.

With the results of Disney+, I would bet that Kevin Mayer's stock has risen quite a bit. Wouldn't be surprised to see him named as Iger's successor sometime this year, given the importance of streaming. Followed after that with Chapel's departure. In the space of a single quarter, streaming has gone from a $1b/yr business to a $12b/yr business.

Can this possibly be not as awful as we thought?

Now that he has to look at the bigger picture and not focus on parks and merch, he has to deal with movies, streaming, etc. he is less apt to get nit picky with specific cuts.

This would allow people like Josh to get creative and “pitch” projects and hopefully push them through.

Yeah, yeah I know, I’m trying here. But it’s “feasible”. Frankly I’m okay with Chapek messing up other parts of the company so the board removes him. Let the parks breath and hopefully flourish without him there.
