Scarlett Johansson's Dedication to Disney: From Lawsuits to Dream Jobs

Despite the lawsuit filed against Disney for breach of contract in 2021, Scarlett Johansson remains a dedicated Disney fan and can be considered a full-fledged Disney adult. The term "Disney adult" has varying definitions, but generally refers to an adult who is a passionate Disney fan.

In a recent interview with Variety, Johansson revealed her level of devotion to Disney. She still visits Disney World at least 10 times a year and "geeks out" when talking about Disney movies. Her love for Disney began when she lived in Florida with her family for two years, and she has been a fan of Disney animation since her childhood. She recalls the golden age of Disney animation with classics such as "The Little Mermaid," "Aladdin," and "The Lion King," and even plans to pre-buy tickets to the upcoming live-action version of "The Little Mermaid."

During her appearance on Bruce Bozzi's "Table for Two" podcast in 2022, Johansson shared her aspiration of having a "corner office" on the Disney studio lot.

Johansson is renowned for her portrayal of Black Widow in nine Marvel films owned by Disney since 2010. She is still attached to star in Disney's upcoming "Tower of Terror" movie, directed by Taika Waititi and based on the renowned theme park ride.

In 2021, Johansson sued Disney for breach of contract, alleging that the studio's release of "Black Widow" on Disney+ on the same day as its theatrical release violated her contract. Johansson claimed that this simultaneous streaming release would diminish her financial stake in the film, as her salary was largely dependent on the movie's box office performance. The lawsuit escalated when then-CEO of Disney, Bob Chapek, revealed Johansson's $20 million salary in a statement.

Ultimately, Johansson and Disney reached a settlement in the autumn of 2021, the terms of which were not made public. Despite this legal battle, Johansson harbors no ill feelings towards Disney, and in her recent interview, she expressed her unwavering belief in the magic of Disney.
