Closing Logo Group

Background: Warner Premiere was the direct-to-DVD production/distribution arm of Warner Home Video, founded in late 2006. Its first release was The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning (2007), a prequel to The Dukes of Hazzard (2005). Its logo is the initials "WP" all in the font similar to the WB shield. On August 13, 2012, Warner Bros. shut down Warner Premiere and it was folded into three operations: Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, Warner Bros. Animation, and Warner Home Video. The three names are responsible for any direct-to-DVD releases with Scooby-DooTom and Jerry, and DC Universe.

1st Logo
(March 4, 2007)

Nickname: "WP"

Logo: On a black background, we see a blue "WP" between the words "WARNER PREMIERE" with lines above and below it, with the byline "A TimeWarner Company" underneath the logo.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Ultra rare. Only seen on The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning.

2nd Logo
(September 18, 2007-2012)

Nicknames: "WP II", "The Enhanced WP"

Logo: Same as the first logo, but animated. On a black background, a blue outline of the letters "WP" zooms out in each other and flashes purely 3D blue. The words "WARNER PREMIERE" fade in between the "WP", followed by the TimeWarner byline fading in below. This logo is very similar to the previous one, but has more relief look.

Variant: There is a version with "D I G I T A L" below, which can be seen on Mortal Kombat Legacy. The variant seen in A Christmas Story 2 has snow falling with the logo.

FX/SFX: The zooming and flashing.

Music/Sounds: A dreamy, relaxing synth tune.

Availability: Common. Seen on movies like Superman: Doomsday (which was the first movie to use this logo), Another Cinderella StoryBatman: Gotham KnightGet Smart's Bruce and Lloyd in Out of ControlA Dennis the Menace ChristmasScooby-Doo!
