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 original Star Wars trilogy and was responsible for the distribution of the prequel trilogy.

20th Century Fox was actually not George Lucas's first choice for a distibutor of the film, having been preceded at least by Universal Studios, who turned his offer down. Lucas convinced Fox, or more specifically Alan Ladd, Jr., to supply the financing for Star Wars, due primarily to Ralph McQuarrie's artwork. In 1977, the company's risky investment paid off when Star Wars became an enormous hit. Fox's stock skyrocketed, and despite the sale of Star Wars merchandising and sequel rights to Lucas, the company still made strong profits.

Even after the release of the final Star Wars film, Fox continues to earn profits from the franchise due to DVD sales and distribuition revenue.
