Zorro Is An Iconic Worldwide Brand
Simply swish your finger through the air three times to form a “Z” and everyone in the world, regardless of age, knows you are speaking of Zorro®, the heroic Hispanic swordsman who defends the weak and oppressed.
A Cross-Generational Brand – Every Generation Has Its Zorro!
This positive, cross-cultural hero delivers instant worldwide awareness reinforced by his iconic mask, whip, sword and the powerful motto, “Justice for All”.
For nearly a century, Zorro has entertained audiences with his powerful presence. Every generation identifies with its own iteration of Zorro and the actor who portrayed him, from Douglas Fairbanks to Antonio Banderas and all in-between.
John Gertz, President and CEO of Zorro Productions Inc., has been guiding the brand for over thirty-five years through major films, television, stage productions, publishing projects and promotions in addition to thousands of licensed products.
And now, Zorro Productions, Inc. is re-engineering and revitalizing the Zorro brand with new feature films in development and a brand new animated television series.
