Hackers are reportedly holding Disney's new "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie ransom, threatening to release the film early if the company doesn't pay the demanded bitcoin sum, reports Fox News.
According to reports, Disney will not pay the ransom and are instead working with the FBI to catch the perpetrators.
Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed during a town hall meeting with employees on Monday that hackers were holding a Disney film hostage, but did not reveal which film had been stolen.
A similar incident occurred just weeks ago after a group of hackers stole the new season of Netflix's "Orange is the New Black" after streaming services did not pay a ransom.

Of course, Twitter took the time to joke about the subject.

Some, interestingly, want the hackers to put their skills to better use.
