"The opportunity is huge.There are these character stars that have audiences as big or bigger than traditional television kids franchises and I wanted to build them the way Disney would build them. I wanted to extend them into all of the areas that kids love. It was the idea to bring kids more of what they love from these brands and do that with consumer products, games, books and more."
