20th Century Studios (formerly 20th Century Fox) is an American film studio. It was the distributor behind Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, and Home Alone 3. Fox also co-distributed Home Alone 4 and Home Alone: The Holiday Heist with Disney-ABC Domestic Television and ABC Family, respectively.
On December 14, 2017, the Walt Disney Company announced that it is acquiring most of Fox's parent company, 21st Century Fox, including the film studio, which was approved by both companies on July 27, 2018. The deal was completed on March 20, 2019. Disney renamed the studio as 20th Century Studios on January 17, 2020, to help avoid brand confusion with the now separated Fox Corporation.
