Bob Iger has weighed in on the abortion debate going on in the country and specifically has addressed the possible changes coming to the state of Georgia.
Yesterday during an interview with Reuters during the dedication of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Iger istated t would be “very difficult” for the media company to keep filming in Georgia if a new abortion law takes effect because many people will not want to work in the U.S. state.
Disney filmed “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Endgame,” in Georgia and it would be a blow to the state’s efforts to create production jobs if the entertainment giant stopped filming there.
“I rather doubt we will,” Iger said in an interview ahead of the dedication for a new “Star Wars” section at Disneyland. “I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard. Right now we are watching it very carefully.”
If the law takes effect, “I don’t see how it’s practical for us to continue to shoot there,” he added.
