Following the media conglomerate's acquisition of 20th Century Fox, Disney is dropping part of its newly-purchased production studio's moniker, according to Variety.

The former 20th Century Fox will reportedly now be known as 20th Century Studios, while its subsidiary Fox Searchlight Pictures will become simply Searchlight Pictures.

The Hollywood trade states decisions regarding whether 20th Century Fox Television or Fox 21 Television studios will be renamed are ongoing. Additionally, Variety states the studios' logos will remain much the same - minus the specific "Fox" branding.
