Disney Is Dropping ‘Fox’ From Its Acquired TV Studios Names

As part of the agreement between Fox and Disney, the latter is removing the Fox name from all the TV studios it has acquired. This move will clearly differentiate between the Disney-owned part of Fox and the rest.

 

This also follows a major Disney TV studios rebranding move that will see ABC Studios and ABC Signature will become one, ABC Signature; Fox 21 Television Studios will be renamed Touchstone Television; and 20th Century Fox Television will become 20th Television.

Disney Television Studios logo changes.

 

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

 

“Dana [Disney Chairwoman] and I could not be more pleased with the first year of our three studios together as part of Disney Television Studios and we believe that with our powerhouse talent roster and exceptional studio teams, the best is yet to come.”

The company says that viewers will start seeing the new logos and end cards by September 2020. They will appear in some of its most-watch TV shows like The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad and others.

 

 

It will not change the logos in already existing episodes that are available via streaming. Earlier this year, Disney had removed the ‘Fox’ name from 20th Century Fox and Fox Searchlight Pictures.

 

With these recent name changes, viewers can now distinguish Disney’s acquired studios from those that Fox still owns. Thus, Fox Sports, Fox Business, Fox News, and Fox TV Channel are still under the original studio owners.

 

Disney is waxing stronger in the television industry and is looking to give its streaming platform, Disney+ more edge. Competition on that end is also tight as well as rivals Netflix are also not slowing down.
