Vanguard Films & Animation, often named only as Vanguard Animation, is an American production studio founded in 2002 by producer John H. Williams and Neil Braun.[1] The studio has offices in British Columbia, Canada and Ealing Studios in London, England, United Kingdom. Starz Media owns the studio's minority stake.

History[edit]

The studio was founded in 2002 by John H. Williams.[1] For its launch, it signed with Ealing Studios a four-picture deal to produce sub-$40 million computer-animated films.[2][3] Following year, Vanguard sold a minority stake to IDT Corporation and partnered with its animation unit, Digital Production Solutions, to co-produce and co-own all Vanguard's properties,[1][4] including Valiant (2005), the first and only project produced for Disney.[2]
