Tracey Ryniec and David Bartosiak, Stock Strategists at Zacks Investment Research, discuss the outlook for Disney Corporation (DIS) now that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out.

In October 2015, Tracey and David debated whether Star Wars could "save" Disney, which was struggling with underperformance in its media division, especially ESPN. Watch that video, and see Tracey's "costume" at, " Can Disney Save Star Wars? "

What do they think now that the movie is actually box office gold?

Will the momentum from the Star Wars universe, including all the merchandising and amusement park rides and attractions, be enough to offset some of its other struggling divisions?

Disney's stock, however, hasn't been as big of a hit as the movie. Shares recently hit a 2-month low.

Is Disney's stock now a deal? Should you be buying?
