Closing Logo Group

(August 5, 1997-2000)[]

Logo: We zoom out of several gold-colored lines on a black background. After the lines zoom, it rotates to reveal the words "VIDEO PREMIERE" in gold. As it flips, "WALT DiSNEY" (in the corporate Disney font) glides down above the VIDEO PREMIERE text. After that, trails of pixie dust appear and encircle the dot of the "i" from "DiSNEY". The trail then hits the dot, creating a small explosion.


  • A prototype version exists on the UK VHS Release of Aladdin and the King of Thieves where the word "DiSNEY" in the corporate font glides in from the top and "VIDEO PREMIERE" glides in from the bottom with the letters rotating to face the viewer.
  • On the 1999 VHS of Madeline in Paris, instead of the usual logo we see another version of the logo with "Disney" in the corporate font at the top and the word "presents" in Times New Roman. This variant is silent.

FX/SFX: Mix of CGI animation with 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: Starts with a drumroll accompanied by fast-paced flute tune, then a four-note dreamy jingle with a rising musical note during the explosion. The prototype version is silent.

Availability: Extremely rare. Seen on some Disney VHS releases of the time, but only in international countries. Also seen on the 2000 VCD of Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas.

Scare Factor: Low. Some people may get scared of the explosion and the drumroll, but it is mostly harmless.
