20th Century Studios

20th Century Studios is an American film studio that is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Studios, a division of The Walt Disney Company.

The studio is located on the Lot in the Century City area of Los Angeles.

For over 83 years, it was one of the “Big Six” major American film studios (along with sister company Walt Disney Pictures); formed from the merger of the Fox Film Corporation and Twentieth Century Pictures in 1935 with William Fox, Joseph M. Schenck, and Darryl F. Zanuck. In 1985, the studio was acquired by News Corporation, which was succeeded by 21st Century Fox in 2013 following the spin-off of its publishing assets. In 2019, Disney acquired 20th Century Fox through its merger with 21st Century Fox.

In January 2020, Disney renamed the studio to 20th Century Studios.1
