A sign on a pole

Well, it finally happened. 20th Century Fox is no more. After a long and drawn out acquisition of 21st Century Fox (which included 20th Century Fox), Disney has finally rebranded the entire property.

Disney rebrands to 20th Century Television

Earlier this year Disney removed the Fox name from its film studio, to rebrand as 20th Century Studios. On Monday, Disney revealed that 20th Century Fox television will also rebrand to just 20th Television.

The iconic logo with the brand’s name on a tv studio set and presumably the well-known Alfred Newman fanfare will still remain. The only change will be to the title, which will now reflect the new brand name.

Titles that released before the merger will keep the old names and logos.

It makes sense that Disney would want to distance itself from 21st Century Fox’s assets, as the Fox Corporation still maintains a strong brand identity through its remaining intellectual properties.

Keeping the ’20th’ brand allows customers to subconsciously recall the Fox brand and all of the 20th Century pictures and television productions that it’s synonymous with, while still maintaining an affiliation with the Disney brand.

For me, it’s sad to see such an iconic studio, which made such strides in the entertainment industry, lose it’s brand identity. Personally, watching Star Wars films hasn’t been the same since Disney‘s acquisition of 21st Century Fox and while it brings some benefits, it’s sad to see Fox Studios fold for good.

The longtime studio‘s famous introduction with its bombastic music and a flashy theater made entertainment history and I’ll always remember the Fox studio as it was.

In recognition of this essential bit of lost Hollywood history, let’s watch the iconic Movie studio‘s fanfare just one more time.

Still, at least we get the X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe now.
