In a statement, Chapek didn’t address the reason for Rice’s departure, but noted Walden has a “well-earned reputation for championing creative talent and developing programming that truly captures the cultural zeitgeist.” Rice joined Disney in 2019, as part of Disney’s acquisition of assets from 21st Century Fox.
