However, this doesn't seem to be happening. In 2013, as part of Disney's breakup with Creator/JerryBruckheimer, Horn admitted that the studio wasn't interested in reviving Touchstone as a producer (Bruckheimer wanted to head up a new version of the label). Instead, when Disney took over full distribution rights to the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and the ''Franchise/StarWars'' sequel trilogy, they chose to brand them under the respective internal studios that made them (Marvel and Lucasfilm). Touchstone was then used to distribute Creator/StudioGhibli's ''Anime/TheWindRises''. ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'', having started production by [[Creator/GeorgeLucas Lucasfilm]] when it was acquired by Disney in 2012, was Touchstone's most recent non-[=DreamWorks=] release, and the last for the foreseeable future. [=DreamWorks=] plans to cut ties with Disney upon the contract's expiration and jump ship to Creator/{{Universal}}, a move that may spell the end of Touchstone; ''The BFG'' will be released under the Disney label, while ''The Light Between Oceans'', also set for 2016, will be Touchstone's last release under [=DreamWorks=].

[=DreamWorks=]. The label could be relegated to a catalog label for Disney (similar to the current structure of the defunct Creator/HollywoodPictures), responsible for handling the copyrights to and distribution of all of Touchstone's films, including the distribution rights to the [=DreamWorks=] films under Touchstone, which Disney will retain indefinitely.
