I really don't like 20th Century Fox's new name being "20th Century Studios", because it doesn't really "pop" and is rather outdated (it ain't the 20th century no more, people!). I think Disney should rename the studio again, but this time to "Hollywood Pictures"! Unlike the old "Hollywood Pictures" from the 90's, the new one would be the label for all adult-oriented films (not just lower budget ones) released by The Walt Disney Company. The logo for "new HP" would be a new version of the old HP's Sphinx logo. A restructuring would also take place, with 20th Television being renamed to "Hollywood Pictures Television".

and for 20th century animation:
it would be renamed to blue sky studios which meant Disney is reviving blue sky studios because most of 20th century animation films are blue sky studios films

ok, I all serious, I dont think the 20th century rename would happen again, the 20th century name is there become that was the name of 20th century pictures which was existed before 20th century and fox film merged to form 20th century fox

I disagree with your idea of Disney reviving Hollywood Pictures as the new name for 20th Century Studios.

The reason why they went with 20th Century Studios as the new name for 20th Century Fox was to disassociate the studio from their former parent company Fox Corporation (formerly 21st Century Fox) and former subsidiaries Fox Broadcasting Company, Fox Sports and Fox News.

Though I was initially against the rebrand at first, in hindsight, it was a wise decision from Disney. That and the rebranded studio still retains their iconic logo albeit tweaked.

I'm sorry, but the spirit, magic, and legacy of 20th Century Fox is as good as dead, thanks to Disney. I don’t think the 20th Century Studios name can replicate that either. Apologies for the late reply by the way.

20th Century has a lot of legacy, as mentioned it existed before it merged with Fox Film. They don't need to change the century, it was the century Hollywood first started off and rapidly developed after all, basically year zero.

Other suggestions I can think of are (these are names that Disney already own):

Touchstone (was pretty much Disney's non-family film brand, also a pseudonym for Disney)
Hollywood Pictures (as previously mentioned, same as above)
Buena Vista (formerly used for several divisions at Disney, mostly recognised for international distribution, pretty much a pseudonym for Disney)

Or they can buyout the rest of Regency and use that name.

All of them less strong than the current 20th Century Fox, I understand them wanting to keep that name (20th century, I mean)

It's not good as dead. The spirit, magic and legacy still continues even without the Fox name. The studio is to Disney like New Line Cinema is to Warner Bros. and Tristar is to Columbia.

There's Star, considering that the name has been used as the rebrand for the Fox channels around the world as well as being the non-US version of Hulu, though I can't see either name being revived as the new name for 20th Century Studios.

I could definitely see them buying the remaining stake of Regency but not using it as the new name for 20th Century Studios.

Instead of "Studios" being part of the new name, it should have been "Pictures", as a revival of the pre-1935 20th Century Pictures (the entity that purchased Fox Film to create 20th Century Fox, TCP, like Disney, once distributed its product through United Artists).

The winner of this matchup is Operation Zero, which got 6 votes. House Of Bloo's got nothing. The next matchup is between the 2011 Winnie The Pooh movie and My Little Pony: Rainbow Road Trip. The latter is just barely an hour long, but it still qualifies.
Damn, this year has not been kind to celebrities.

I'm going to take drastic measures. Maybe my wording was vague.
