    Evolution of the Walt Disney Pictures Opening Logo

    Ok, thread that grew out of my boredom here..

    I was randomly thinking about Pirates 2 and somehow my mind thought of the bizarre new disney logo that appeared at the top of the film. I wondered if this was a logo that was going to stay with us for awhile, if it was for all live action films, or if it's something that would disappear after a few years.

    I thought of the opening logo and how it appeared in various forms over the past decade so I thought I'd share those with you guys.


    Here, the logo that we all know and love. I don't know exactly when it began but I know that Disney plugged it in front of much older titles for the home video releases.





    Then came a slew of live action films under the disney brand, but since they weren't exactly kid faire, Disney wanted a opening that reflected this change. Movies such as Rocketeer opened with this:



    It's probably as simple as you can get. 1995 introduced the all CG opening when Toy Story opened in theaters.



    All pixar films opened with this title. Chicken Little opened with a similar one but not quite the same. And since I didn't buy that boring film, I don't have a comparison for ya. Sorry!


    Walt Disney special projects introduced a new opening for films like Dinosaur. I think some live action films also opened with this too if I'm not mistaken but I can't remember exactly. Brother Bear also opened with this some years later.




    ATLANTIS: THE LOST EMPIRE recieved a very unique opening with reflections of water. It was a very cool opening and matched the film.




    LILO & STITCH recieved a darker variation of the opening logo. What's unique here are the signal blips going over the castle.




    Then came HOME ON THE RANGE. The last Disney 2D feature film until who knows when. This opening logo was also unique to the film, having the logo branded onto the brown background. Very cool, though the film wasn't.




    And lastly, we come to the over-elaborate opener for Pirates 2. We start in the sky, pan down to see a city, river, fireworks, and then finally truck over the castle. This one may grow on me but I think it's a bit much.




    What do you guys think? Do you like the newest opening logo?

    I'm a big fan of the new logo. It's nice to see the castle in all its 3 dimensional (non-Pixarish) glory. It's almost a movie in of itself.

    I'm not a fan. The tag is much too long, (as it ran in front of Pirates 2), not instantly recognizable, and the castle isn't very attractive.

    I like the idea of updating the logo, but I'm not liking what they came up with.

    I really like it. It's pretty.

    When we saw Pirates 2 @ midnight everyone Aww-ed and clapped. It was kind of cool.

    It isn't Cinderella Castle. It is a mish mash of parts. The base is of Cinderella Castle, but the top is a strecthed up version of Sleeping Beauty Castle. I think it makes for an ugly mix. I think it would have been much better to use Sleeping Beauty Castle in a nice, simple setting.

    You are all going to laugh, but the first time I saw it, during Pirates 2, I got all teary eyed. I think it is beautiful and it reminds me of the parks and the fun times my family and I have while there.

    I really like it, and I hope to see it used in other films.

    It's a step ahead of the cheap blue card. but I still prefer the "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" painting with Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle, TinkerBell and fireworks, as on the TV show bumpers. Very artful and emotional.

    The composite castle and setting in this new CGI bumper are kind of "cold" by comparison.

    See I don't see it that way, it seems like there's a whole "Disney world" that has yet to be explored and the movie following is just another adventure through the gates of the castle...



    ok not really, but I do get a big epic feelign out of it more-so then the blue card.

    I really love the new opening. I was wowed with it when I saw Pirates 2. In fact it was worth paying 8 bucks just to see that part alone. Yes I am being a little sarcastic there but really it is an awesome opening. There needed to be a new opening logo and this was definitely amazing.
