Infographic: Which Movie Studio Owns the Various Film Franchises?
Now that Disney has added Lucasfilm and the Star Wars universe to their arsenal of established intellectual property (in addition to Pixar, Marvel and Pirates of the Caribbean), now might be a good time to review which well-known film franchises belong to what studio. Not all of the Marvel properties are set up at Disney, so this can be confusing for many who don't keep as close an eye as other cinephiles. Thankfully, Empire has put together a nice infographic laying out seven of the major film studios and which properties they own for the big screen. From Jason Bourne to Hunger Games and more, look below!
Here's Empire's infographic of what studios own which film franchises:
Most of the sequelized film franchises are accounted for, but there's likely some missing, mainly franchises that have been inactive for awhile like Austin Powers, which should be at Warner Bros. since it's a New Line production. There's also the forthcoming Anchorman sequel that isn't mentioned here, but that's not likely to continue after the second film anyway. Are there any franchises missing you think should be here?
