2nd Logo (2003-2019)


Logo: On a black background, a flash of light emerges from the screen and circles showing clips from DisneyToon Studios-owned movies (in order: Tinkerbell from Tinkerbell films, the titular characters of Pocahontas from Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World, Mickey Donald, and Goofy from Mickey, Donald, and Goofy: The Three Muskeeters, Thunderbolt and Patch from 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure, Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame II, Genie and Abu Aladdin and the King of Thieves, Scamp and Angel from Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure, Belle from Belle's Magical World, Thumper and Bambi from Bambi 2, Mulan from Mulan II, Kronk from Kronk's New Groove, Fox, and Hound Dog, from The Fox and the Hound 2, Mowgli and Baloo from The Jungle Book 2, Ariel from The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning, Milo from Atlantis: Milo's Return, Lilo & Stitch from Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch has a Glitch, Love Will Find a Way scene from The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, Lumpy from Pooh's Heffalump Movie, Meerkats from The Lion King 1½, T.J and Friends from Recess School's Out, Scoorge Mcduck and Friends from DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, Peter Pan and Jane from Return to Neverland, Cinderella from Cinderella 3: A Twist in Time, Nina, Kenai and Koda, from Brother Bear 2, and Young Tarzan swings on a vine from Tarzan 2) fly toward us. As the last circle flies towards us, two golden rings appear in the center rotating and collapse into the MGM DVD logo (in gray), surrounded by a red aura and a gold outline. Leo roars once in it, and after that, the logo quickly zooms into the screen before cutting to black.

Technique: CGI animation, with DisneyToon Studios film clips and Leo footage.

Music/Sounds: A commanding orchestral fanfare ending with a triumphant finish, which is a snippet of the stock musical piece "Ultimate Glory" by Anthony DiLorenzo. The appearance of the MGM logo is marked with a loud explosion sound, and the 1995 roar is heard when Leo is seen.

Availability: Very common.

  • This logo was not used outside North America until late 2006. It is almost preceded by the 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment logo from the time period in these regions.
  • It doesn't appear on the The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild, and Kermit's Swamp Years that MGM distributed or any other family MGM DVDs at the time, as they use the MGM Kids logo.
  • It also doesn't appear on MGM releases distributed by DreamWorks Animation on DVD & Blu-ray, such as The Boss Baby: Family Business, its sequel and Puss in Boots: The Last WIsh.
  • As MGM became more of a film financer in 2011, this logo began to be used less frequently, with only DVD releases of DisneyToon Studios films MGM co-produced but held the home video rights to, films from Walt Disney Home Entertainment released by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, or Disney Sequel films utilizing this logo.
  • This does not appear on the DVD release of the 2019 remake of The Lion King.
