Per CNBC analyst Tom DiChristopher Disney could be a major obstacle standing in the way of Hasbro's purchase of DreamWorks Animation. In other words Disney must approve this deal! Hasbro has a very lucrative contract with Walt Disney to produce toys based on their Star Wars and Marvel Comics properties. Senior Analyst Steph Wissink at Piper Jaffray estimates that 25 to 30 percent of Hasbro's business is tied up with Disney. Hasbro owning Disney's biggest rival animation studio could present a huge problem.

After DreamWorks' recent box-office disappointments, including "Turbo" and "Rise of the Guardians." CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, also held talks with another potential buyer, Japanese telecommunications giant SoftBank.

According to USAtoday, Hasbro is in talks to buy DreamWorks, the Studio behind animated movie franchises as Shrek and Madagascar. While NY Times is citing anonymous sources that talks are in "advance stages" and the deal would include a combination of stocks and cash. This deal with Hasbro would forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro. With Hasbro already owning 40% of Discovery Family, they are making it clear that they want to be the leader of family entertainment, using this media to promote their games and toys including Transformers.



According to Deadline.com, "DreamWorks Animation is deeply engaged in two potentially game changing negotiations that could transform the company — including one with Hasbro to forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro. The other talks are with Hearst to turn DWA's AwesomenessTV into a joint venture."

DreamWorks' Jeffrey Katzenberg would become chairman of the combined operation, the website says.
