Can you get sued for telling about your company's secrets?

Let's say I'm an animator for Disney, and Disney is working on a new movie. I post on Facebook about the plot of an upcoming movie. Can I get sued by Disney for it?

    You would likely be fired. If you signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with your employer,  then you could be sued if you divulged any company secrets. If you didn't sign an NDA, then it's all fair game.

    You would get fired and most probably sued for damages.  You also would never work in that field for anyone again.

    You would not only be fired but you would be taken to court as well. In addition you may not ever be likely to find another job in the film industry. You may even find it difficult to find another job where you have access to company "secrets".

    Companies like that have you sign a paper restricting your freedom to tell anything about the company projects.  You could do jail time

    You will get fired first, then maybe sued.

    You could certainly get into trouble, such as losing your job and being sued. Companies have proprietary rights over their products, and they may well take action against employees who disclose secrets.  

    The plot of a movie isn't quite the same as, say, the secret ingredients in a food or drug item, but if you gave away spoilers on Facebook, you'd probably be fired.

    Any company that needs to protect its rights would probably require employees to sign an agreement at the outset that they will keep the company's secrets a secret.

    You could get fired by Disney, and probably never work for any studio ever again. About telling secrets, has to do with contracts. If you violated a contract, yes.

    In many cases and closely kept studio secrets, the actors, animators, and many people involved don't know details.

    One animator does not have access to the entire film.
