Maa Movies rebranded on 25 June 2017 along with Maa Music and Maa Gold; Maa Movies also launched an HD feed. Later that day, Tamil sister channel Star Vijay introduced a new logo after 16 years.

All the Maa channels changed their logos to match that of Star Maa, which had rebranded from Maa TV on 13 February 2017, and added the Star prefix to their names (though this was not reflected in the logos of the Maa channels, or Star Vijay for that matter, as it is for Star Suvarna, Star Jalsha and Star Pravah). This is in contrast to Bengali sister channel Jalsha Movies, which is never referred to as Star Jalsha Movies.

On 6 September 2020, during the inauguration of the fourth season of Bigg Boss Telugu (the Indian version of Big Brother), another rebrand of the Star Maa channels took place, with new logos and graphics for all the channels. The Star wordmark has been added to the logos (set in the Foco font, as it has been borrowed from the Star Plus logo), and the word Maa is now written in Telugu, replacing the wordmark from 2008.

For Star Maa, the star symbol has also been changed (similar to Star Plus), while the other three channels retain their existing symbols, but with the wordmarks modified.
