20th Century Fox Movie Franchises that Feel Most Out of Place Being Owned by Disney

By now, most of us know that Disney took over 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios). Of course, that means every 20th Century Fox film and film franchise is now a Disney property. Doesn't that feel weird? Some films feel like they sort of belong here (1997's 'Anastasia' has been mistaken a Disney film ever since it released) while others feel completely out of place under the Mouse House. This list compiles the best examples of films that we're having a tough time believing are now under Disney ownership.
The Top Ten
1 Alien Alien Product Image

There's virtually no element of this franchise that feels like it would have anything to do with Disney, yet, out of all the franchises that were acquired by Disney, this is one of the ones with the most future potential (next to any of their new superhero franchises, of course).

2 Die Hard Die Hard Product Image

"Yippee ki-yay, motherf***er!". Now imagine Goofy saying that. If the thought makes you laugh, you'll probably agree with how strange it is to think of a Disney-produced film using that piece of dialogue. Yet, if they make any more John McClain-centered films, you're guaranteed to hear it.

3 Kingsman Kingsman Product Image

So R-rated. So over the top. So wonderful. So un-Disney. Yet, here we are.

4 Predator Predator Product Image

On the same day as they announced 'Deadpool 3', they announced a reboot of the franchise is coming from '10 Cloverfield Lane' director, Dan Trachtenberg.

5 The Omen The Omen Product Image

Like, 'Alien' and (I guess to a degree) 'Predator', any horror film or franchise feels out of place under Disney. Will they try to make something out of this dormant franchise? Who knows.

6 Hitman Hitman Product Image
7 Planet of the Apes Planet of the Apes Product Image

Apparently, a new film (with the potential for further sequels) is in the works from 'Maze Runner' series director, Wes Ball. They're saying it will be a continuation of the Caesar storyline of the last three films, which is good. Here's hoping Disney does the series justice.

8 Borat Borat Product Image

Surely a better 2006 movie than literally everything that Disney actually did make back in 2006.

Imagine if they added a Kazakhstan pavilion to Epcot and put a Borat attraction in there.

I'm not even making this one up.

9 Deadpool Deadpool Product Image

As of the day before I posted this list (November 20th, 2020), it was announced that Marvel Studios is finally moving forward with 'Deadpool 3'. The two writers behind 'Bob's Burgers' are penning the script, and, of course, Ryan Reynolds is returning. Time will tell if the film is somehow included in amongst the MCU characters or standing alone in it's little corner of reality. Either way, it's weird to think that we could someday see the merc with the mouth standing alongside characters like Thor or Spider-Man.

10 Ice Age Ice Age Product Image

Hey, it's animated! So, it's like a Disney film, right? Well, if you've ever seen a sloth with its nipples on fire in a Disney film, then you're right. They're totally similar. To the rest of us who know they've never seen THAT kind of humour tackled in a Disney film, adding this series to the Disney+ catalogue feels rightfully odd.

The Contenders
11 X-Men X-Men Product Image

Like, Deadpool, it's weird to see the (presently) longest-continuously running superhero franchise outside of the MCU come under Disney ownership. We know we're going to start seeing mutants in the franchise soon. We're not sure when or where or how, but it's coming and it'll be equal parts exciting and hard to believe when it does (think of how it felt to see Spider-Man in the MCU for the first time).

12 The Fantastic Four The Fantastic Four Product Image

Maybe under Kevin Feige we'll finally see Marvel's first family properly realized on film. Just maybe.

13 Home Alone Home Alone Product Image
