However, with the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' series (the first film being the first Disney-branded movie to get a PG-13 rating, which was introduced just a few months after Touchstone was established), the once clear distinction between Disney and Touchstone territory began to blur, and Touchstone became more pigeonholed. In 2006 new Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that the company would be making an effort to focus more heavily on its three main core brands (Disney, {{Creator/ABC}} and {{Creator/ESPN}}), as well as on major acquired properties (such as {{Creator/Pixar}} and Franchise/TheMuppets, and later [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel]] and Lucasfilm). As consequence in 2007 it was announced that the Disney studio would scale back on the number of live-action films produced, the majority of which would now be Disney-branded.

[=DreamWorks=] cut ties with Disney upon the contract's expiration and jumped ship to Creator/{{Universal}}, with both of its final two releases with Disney receiving shoddy box office numbers; ''The BFG'' was released under the Disney label on July 1, 2016 to heavy competition from fellow Disney release ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'', as well as competition in the coming week with Universal/Illumination's ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretLifeOfPets'', while ''The Light Between Oceans'', which marks the official end of Touchstone's [=DreamWorks=] deal, was released on September 2, 2016[[note:Labor Day weekend in the United States that year]], [[DumpMonths a terrible time for a theatrical release]]. No projects have been announced since, leading to speculation that Touchstone has been rendered inactive, if not flat out defunct, though Disney itself has said next to nothing on the matter, though CEO Bob Iger reinforcing the current Disney status quo of less risks and more franchises at an investor's meeting in late September 2016 doesn't help its case. 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.

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'' was released under the Disney label on July 1, 2016 to shoddy box office numbers due to heavy competition from fellow Disney release ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'', as well as competition in the coming week with Universal/Illumination's ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretLifeOfPets'', while ''The Light Between Oceans'', released on September 2, 2016, marks the official end of Touchstone's [=DreamWorks=] deal.
