Warner Española S.A.

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Warner Bros. had opened its local headquarters in Spain in the early 1970s under the name of Warner Española S.A. Warner Española, alongside releasing Warner Bros. films (as well as films by Disney theatrically in the late 80s-90s) is also involved in distribution of Spanish films such as Ensalada Baudelaire (1978), Adios Pequeña (1986) and most of 90s Pedro Almodóvar's films such as Tacones lejanos, Kika and Carne termula. The division currently exists today as Warner Bros. Entertainment España.

1st Logo (November 13, 1975-1997)

Visuals: On a cloudy background, there is a brown WB shield with a yellow interior, with "WE" replacing "WB" and a green banner with "ESPANOLA" on it and "presenta" below.

Variant: On Ni se te ocurra..., instead of the normal logo, a custom variant is used, where we see a blue-white WB shield on a live-action circle on a paper backdrop. The chyroned text "WARNER ESPAÑOLA" then zooms down in the middle of the logo. While a man wearing a brown rabbit suit then rips the backdrop off, "PRESENTA" fades in below the text, as a parody of "Merrily We Roll Along" plays atop it. This is preceded by a parody of the Columbia and Rank Organisation logos.

Technique: A still printed image.

Audio: None or the opening theme of the movie.

Availability: First seen on Rafael and Raphael and appeared on Ensalada Baudelaire, Ni te se ocurra..., Tacones lejanos, Kika and Carne termula.

2nd Logo (October 10, 1997)

Visuals: Over a blue background is the 3D text "WARNER ESPAÑOLA" with two gold lines flanking it, which is tilted slightly and the text "S.A. PRESENTA" below.

Technique: A still computer graphic.

Audio: None.

Availability: Seen on the original Spanish release of Live Flesh.
