Even the best don't get far without help. Frodo had his Sam, Harry his friends Ron and Hermione, Sherlock Holmes his faithful Watson. And Elbenwald? Maintains close contacts with the most important players in the film and television industry!


The Walt Disney Company is one of the best-known companies in the world. Ergo, it is also home to some of the world's best-known studios, including Walt Disney Pictures (Pirates of the Caribbean), Disney Animation (The Ice Queen), Pixar (Finding Nemo) and Lucasfilm (Star Wars). In addition, there is the company's own streaming service Disney+ with hit series such as The Mandalorian.


Marvel Studios has more or less single-handedly taken the superhero theme from the niche to the cinema throne. And along the way, following the comic book model, established the idea of a large film universe. It is precisely this approach that has guaranteed the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which becomes even more complex with every new film and series.

Warner Bros.

What would the modern film landscape, or while we're at it, Elven realms, be without Warner? The Lord of the Rings. Eight Harry Potter and three Fantastic Beasts films. The Matrix. The Dark Knight Trilogy. Blade Runner. Dune. The Prestige, Inception, and Interstellar. Almost everything by Stanley Kubrick. The Goonies, Gremlins, and The NeverEnding Story. Just to name a few...


The pay-TV broadcaster HBO has always stood for gritty series that other broadcasters would never have brought to market, at least in this form. And thus created some of the best series of all time: The Sopranos. True Detective. The Wire. Rome. Deadwood. Chernobyl. Watchmen. Band of Brothers. Westworld. His Dark Materials. Lovecraft Country. And of course: Game of Thrones.


Under "video streaming service" in the thesaurus, "Netflix" could simply be listed. Because the company, which started big with DVD rentals, has almost single-handedly built today's streaming market and is something like the quasi-standard. Above all, Netflix has created brands that are now firmly part of pop culture: Stranger Things, Squid Game, and Wednesday.

DC Studios

Labeling DC Studios as a copy of the MCU would be as shortsighted as it is wrong. While the studio has built its own superhero film universe, the DC Extended Universe, currently being developed by James Gunn, it also has numerous projects outside the DCEU. These include mega-hits like Joker, The Batman, or The Sandman.

Cartoon Network

You think of children's shows when you hear Cartoon Network? Think again! Besides well-known kids' brands like Dexter’s Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, and the Powerpuff Girls, the American TV channel offers numerous adult-oriented content, including Rick and Morty, Adventure Time, and the ultimate satire classic, Robot Chicken.


Throughout its history, Paramount Pictures has produced numerous global successes: Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Godfather, Titanic, and, of course, Star Trek. The fact that the studio isn't resting on its laurels is evident, with contributions such as Tom Cruise (Top Gun, Mission: Impossible). But above all, we owe thanks to Paramount+ for the fantastic German series adaptation Kohlrabenschwarz!
