Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, often called simply 20th Century Fox, is a motion picture studio and distributor located in southern California. The studio was involved in the development of the Ice Age series.
20th Century Fox was not the first choice for a distributor of the film; Fox Animation Studios was the initial choice, but, due to the box office failure of Titan A.E, Fox Animation's final film, the company was disbanded, leaving directors Carlos Saldanha and Chris Wedge to transfer production to Blue Sky Studios, the CGI division of Fox.
The company was founded on May 31, 1935, as the result of the merger of Fox Film Corporation, founded by William Fox in 1915, and Twentieth Century Pictures, founded in 1933 by Darryl F. Zanuck, Joseph Schenck, Raymond Griffith and William Goetz.
20th Century Fox is a member of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).
