A few weeks ago, Paramount unveiled a new logo marking its 100th Anniversary and now Universal is following suit with a fresh logo to celebrate its centenary. It’s the beginning of a yearlong celebration of the studio’s rich film history and cultural legacy.
A significant element of the centennial includes the extensive restoration of 13 of the studio’s most beloved titles such as To Kill a Mockingbird, All Quiet on The Western Front, Jaws, The Sting, Out of Africa, Frankenstein, and Schindler’s List. Universal Studios Home Entertainment will kick off the celebration with a special 50th anniversary release of To Kill a Mockingbird, debuting on Blu-ray for the first time ever.
Throughout the year, Universal will pay tribute to other influential films in the Universal library with special events and Blu-ray releases of such iconic classics as Jaws and E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (which celebrates its 30th anniversar)y.
The animated version of the new logo will make its first appearance in front of Dr. Seuss’The Lorax at its premiere in February, and for its US theatrical release beginning March 2nd.
