Disney closes the curtain on 20th Century Fox

Walt Disney has brought to an end one of the best-known names in the entertainment industry, 20th Century Fox.

This comes after the legendary House of Mouse has rebranded one of its TV studios as 20th Television.

It follows January’s rebranding of the 85-year-old film company 20th Century Fox as 20th Century Studios.

Disney has also renamed its other television studios, including changing ABC Studios and ABC Signature Studios to ABC Signature while Fox 21 Television Studios will become Touchstone Television.

In a statement, President of Disney studios, Craig Hunegs said in a statement, “Our new studio names and logos mark a new day for ABC Signature, 20th Television and Touchstone Television while honouring their rich histories and the creative power of The Walt Disney Company.”

20th Century Fox Television, which can trace its roots back to 1949, has been home to some of TV’s most famous shows including the original Batman series, M*A*S*H and The Simpsons.
