What synergy do you see? How would apple make disney’s Business better or vice versa?

I'm not a huge fan of Apple buying Disney, but I could see Disney helping Apple's services side of things, assuming they could get things past regulators (with the current Administration, that would be easy, I suspect). Disney is planning on launching its own streaming service (so most of its movies are leaving Netflix) -- suppose that was tied into iTunes so that the place to go to stream the latest Star Wars, Marvel, or Pixar movie was iTunes?

That's just one content-based example I could think of (I'm sure there are things Apple could do with ESPN, as well).

But, again, I don't like the idea, but there could be some benefits.
