Warner Bros. Studios began when four brothers, Albert, Sam, Harry and Jack L. Warner, incorporated their fledgling movie company on April 4, 1923. In 1927, the release of the world’s first synchronized-sound feature film “The Jazz Singer” set a character and tone of innovation and influence that would become synonymous with the name Warner Bros.
Since those early days, Warner Bros. Studios has amassed an impressive legacy, while creating a diversified entertainment company with unparalleled depth and breadth. The company’s consistency and long-term success are built on a foundation of stable management throughout its history, long-standing creative relationships with many of the world’s leading stars and producers, and an unwavering dedication to excellence.

The Studio also manages one of the most successful collections of brands and franchises in the world.
