The cash is an alluring offer, Disney is offering cash and stock options. It will be interesting to see what Fox wants and what deal they think is the better one.

Honestly, the Disney stock is probably worth more than cash.

There's a Wall Street analyst saying that the best option might be for Comcast and Disney to split up the assets: https://www.cbr.com/disney-comcast-split-fox-assets-theory/


After reading some comments about this, it also seems an unlikely option. Sounds like both companies either want everything or nothing. This is all just speculation though

Apparently, Fox accepted the deal...but it's not quite a done deal yet.

UPDATE: So now it looks like the anti-trust approval is imminent...my oh my, the X-men might be coming home to Disney/Marvel sooner than thought.
