Disney, in a filing with regulators on Wednesday, disclosed Fox’s reasons for rejecting the rival offer without disclosing the bidder.

Comcast had abandoned its bid to buy most of the assets of Rupert Murdoch’s Fox.

Disney announced the $52.4 billion deal for Fox’s film and TV assets in December.
