Disney is buying a large part of the Murdoch family's 21st Century Fox in a $52.4 billion deal, announced Thursday, Dec. 14, including film and television studios, cable and worldwide TV businesses as it tries to meet competition from technology companies in the entertainment business.
In its annual proxy filing, the media giant said it would propose a slate of 10 directors at its annual shareholder meeting, and neither Sandberg, the Facebook COO, nor Twitter CEO Dorsey were included on it.
Disney has begun to delve into video programming, an area that Twitter and Facebook are also branching into.

Other directors who would not stand for re-election are Orin Smith, the 75-year-old lead independent director, and Robert Matschullat, 70, because of term and age limits for board members.
Marketing has reached out to The Walt Disney Company for comment. CEO Francis deSouza will join the board from February.
