One of the most famous names and logos in the American film industry disappears: Disney puts an end to the name 20th Century Fox. At the beginning of this year, the name of the parent company was already changed to 20th Century Studios and now the film company will be called 20th Television.
The name 20th Century Fox existed for 85 years. Disney took over the film company over a year ago for about 60 billion euros and soon decided that the name Fox should disappear. Why was not said, but according to the BBC Disney might not want to be associated with the right-wing Fox, the company of media magnate Rupert Murdoch.
The name Fox 21 Television Studios has already been changed to Touchstone Television.
20th Century Fox is known from major American TV series and films such as the original Batman series, M*A*S*H, The Simpsons, Avatar and Titanic.
