History

Fox Animation Studios

From 1992–2000, they operated Fox Animation Studios, a traditional animation studio which was started to compete with Walt Disney Animation Studios, which was experiencing great success at the time with films such as "Beauty and the Beast", "Aladdin" and "The Lion King". The Fox studio, however, was not as successful. Their first feature "Anastasia", although critically acclaimed as being of Disney caliber and often mistaken as a Disney film, barely made a profit, taking in $58 million at the American box office on an estimated $53 million dollar budget [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118617/business] . Their next feature, "Titan A.E.", was a large financial loss, taking back only $22 million of its estimated $75 million budget [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120913/business] . The lack of box office success, coupled with the rise of computer animation, led Fox to shut down the Fox Animation Studio after 2000.

Blue Sky Studios

At present, Fox owns Blue Sky Studios, a computer animation company. Fox has had much more success with Blue Sky, and the box office receipts of their films are competitive with that of Pixar's. They have currently released three features: 2002's "Ice Age", 2005's "Robots", and 2006's "". Their latest film is "Horton Hears A Who!", an adaptation of the Dr. Seuss book that was released March 14, 2008 and earned $45,012,998 in the opening weekend.
