You want to call it metaverse. You want to call it the blending of the physical and digital experiences. Which I think Disney should excel at. We realize that it’s going to be less of a passive type experience where you just have playback, whether it’s a sporting event or whether it’s an entertainment offering, and more of an interactive, lean-forward, actively engaged type experience. Product innovation is a very top-of-mind thing for us.”
