Disney could pull productions from Georgia over abortion law
Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney says Georgia's controversial new anti-abortion law would make it "Difficult" for the company to keep filming there. Blockbusters like Black Panther and Avengers: Endgame, were recently shot in the state, due to its generous tax breaks for film productions. Recently, Disney's Marvel Studios filmed portions of both Black Panther and Avengers: Endgame in Georgia. Georgia - which offers up to 30% tax breaks has become a magnet for film and TV productions, employing more than 90,000 people. Recent productions based in the state include: Godzilla: King of Monsters, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, Black Panther, Pitch Perfect 3, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Stranger Things, Ozark and The Walking Dead. Georgia is one of several US states to pass the strict law barring abortion beyond the sixth week of pregnancy, the latest being Louisiana.
