I doubt it. Chapek was in charge of the unit when DVD was the hottest selling consumer technology ever. It likely made him a star in the company. He was eventually promoted to head the Theme Parks division. Bill Hunt from the Digital Bits says Chapek is a genuinely nice guy who loved his job at home video.I would like to believe Chapek might still have some sympathies for physical media. Though what is unknown, is what Chapek REALLY felt about his previous job running the home video division.
For example, did he think it was a "purgatory" which Disney (and other movie companies) used as a "dumping ground" for the less than stellar executives and employees?
