Disney removed the word "Fox" from the name of the famed 20th Century Fox movie studio, Variety magazine reported Friday.
The studio will now be known as 20th Century Studios, multiple outlets confirmed.
Name - Effort - Studio - Rupert - Murdoch
Changing the name appears to be a conscious effort to distance the studio from Rupert Murdoch, who sold it to Disney in early 2019.
In recent years, Murdoch has shed vast swathes of his media empire, which is now focused on the Fox News cable network and a stable of influential newspapers.
