“`The Walt Disney Company has just ended one of the best-known names in show business… 20th Century Fox. The film studio is now called 20th Century Studios.  The television division will be known as 20th Television. Both the 20th Century small screen and film re-brands retain the famous fanfare theme tune and searchlight logo.

“`Disney has also renamed their other television properties, including ABC Studios and ABC Signature Studios to ABC Signature;  while Fox 21 Television Studios will become Touchstone Television.

“`Disney’s movie-making history dates back to the 1920s, today includes Lucasfilm – which makes the Star Wars franchise – and Marvel Studios, among its stable of film companies.

“`20th Century Fox was created in 1935 when Twentieth Century Pictures and Fox Films merged. The studio is known for screening some of the most profitable productions of all-time, including Avatar and Titanic. 20th Century Fox Television, which traces their roots back to 1949, has been home to popular shows, including the original Batman series, M*A*S*H, and The Simpsons.

“`Earlier this year, when the film studio was re-branded, there were suggestions that Disney wanted to distance itself from Rupert Murdoch’s partisan, right-wing Fox News network.
