    Hasbro Denies Disney Acquisition Rumors?

    A couple of days ago, the "Disney's buying Hasbro!" rumour started (and we reported it here - Hasbro, of course, owning WotC, which publishes D&D). Now it seems that Hasbro advisors are denying this rumour. Although MTV and others reported that "serious discussions [were] happening at the highest levels” between Hasbro and Disney", Hasbro advisors later said that "absolutely nothing going on that they are aware of at all, in any way, shape or form" involving the two companies - although Hasbro itself declined comment, citing its policy of not talking about rumor or speculation. Wall Street analysts said a Disney acquisition didn't make much sense, just after Disney agreed to buy Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion and "for any deal to happen, Hasbro would have to dissolve agreements with Disney's competitors".

    So. Hasbro "advisors" deny it; Hasbro itself isn't commenting; nobody's asked Disney; and "analysts" think it unlikely. Make of that what you will!
