The Academy Members Project I

Pictured: Bob Iger is the Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company. As if being Mickey Mouse’s boss wasn’t a big enough responsibility, Iger has overseen Disney’s acquisition of Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Entertainment and LucasFilm, which means that he’s also the boss of Buzz Lightyear, Captain America and Luke Skywalker! Additionally, Iger serves as the Chair of the Capital Campaign for the much awaited Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, which is scheduled to open in early 2017.
