100 years of Warner Brothers Studios is being celebrated with a documentary series and an official book.

Few film studios are as iconic as Warner Brothers. With Bugs Bunny as its official mascot, it’s responsible for innumerable classic films and television shows.

It’s celebrating its centenary with a four part documentary, aptly titled 100 Years Of Warner Bros. The synopsis reads as follows:

Exploring the impact of Warner Bros. on art, commerce, and culture, Leslie Iwerks’ latest documentary 100 Years of Warner Bros. tells the unprecedented story of the fabled entertainment studio on its 100th anniversary. Featuring insights and first-person stories from directors, actors, executives, journalists and historians, the four specials trace Warner Bros.’ underdog origins – from its founding in the early 1920s by four brothers from an immigrant family, through decades of creative risks and impactful storytelling, to historic mergers in the 2000s that transformed the company into a global entertainment powerhouse.

Oscar nominated filmmaker Leslie Iwerks directed the documentary, which is narrated by Morgan Freeman.

It is currently streaming on HBO Max, and while there is no sign of a UK release as of yet, we will be able to get our hands on the official book. Entitled Warner Bros: 100 Years Of Storytelling, Mark A. Vieira’s 368 page tome chronicles the creation of the studio by Brothers Albert, Harry, Jack and Sam Warner, though films successful and less so.

The book is released on the 1st June, you can order a copy here
