Iconic character Zorro celebrates his 100th anniversary in 2019. 

Zorro was first brought to life by Johnston McCulley in a 1919 pulp fiction serial.  

Inspired by McCulley’s Zorro, silent film star Douglas Fairbanks became the silver screen’s first swashbuckling action hero portraying ZORRO in the 1920 film, The Mark of Zorro. 

A Django/Zorro crossover film from Quentin Tarantino is in development at Columbia Pictures – a sequel to both Django Unchained and The Legend of Zorro!

Licensing Management International will be at BLE on Stand B90
