It comes after Hasbro forked out a whopping $3.8 billion to buy Canadian studio Entertainment One Ltd. (eOne) because it owns the lucrative Peppa Pig and PJ Masks franchises. The deal was initially announced at the end of last summer but was officially completed on December 30, 2019.
Entertainment One also has a valuable music division that includes ownership of Death Row Records’ catalogue, which it purchased in 2013 after the rap label’s previous parent company went bankrupt.
