The Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) Studios is an entertainment company very well known for their iconic film franchises such as James Bond and Rocky. Other than those franchises, MGM is also known for famous titles such as such as the Gone With the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, and The Silence of the Lambs, among several others.

But do you know what else the MGM is known for? Well, their iconic roaring lion logo, of course! And about the said logo, MGM has made a few changes. No need to worry, though, their logo may be new but its design did not drift too far away from the previous ones.

“MGM is replacing its iconic mascot for a near-identical computer-generated duplicate. Leo the lion is dead, long live Leo the CG lion,” CNET reported. See the new logo below, as provided by MGM Studios.

An Evolution 97 Years in the Making

Aside from the new roaring lion, CNET has pointed out another change in MGM’s iconic logo; the company’s slogan was displayed in English before it reverted back to the original, “Ars Gratia Artis”, which is in Latin.

Watch the brand evolution video published by the official YouTube channel of MGM and observe how their new logo briefly displayed their slogan in English, “Art for Art’s Sake.”
