Nicknames: "CGI Tinkerbell", "Pure Digital Magic"

Logo: On a night-sky background, a spark shoots at the middle of the screen, forming a "D". It comes again forming a "V" this time, next to the "D" and for the third time forming another "D". A curved line is drawn, and "DiSNEY", in its corporate font, goes on top of "DVD". The spark goes across the bottom, forming "Pure Digital Magic" (in the native language of the country in which it was released), and that spark appears to be a CGI Tinkerbell, who smiles at us and takes off, leaving a trail of fairy dust that dissolves a moment later.

Variant: The text "Pure Digital Magic" may be displayed in a different language depending of the region:
  • German: "Zauber in einen neuen Dimension" ("Magic in a new dimension")
  • Spanish: "Pura Magia Digital"
  • Italian: "Pura Magia Digitale"
  • Portuguese: "Pura Magia Digital"
  • Korean: "환상적인 디지털 세계" ("Fantastic digital world")
  • Chinese: "數位魅力百分百!" ("100% digital charm!")
  • Czech: "Digitálně čisté kouzlo"
  • Arabic: "منتهى متعة تكنولوجيا الديجيتال سحر التكنولوجيا الرقمية اقصى الاستمتاع بالتكنولوجيا الرقمية استمتع بسحر تكنولوجيا الديجيتال" ("The ultimate in digital technology. The magic of digital technology. The maximum enjoyment of digital technology. Enjoy the magic of digital technology")
  • Hungarian: "100% Digitális Varázslat" ("100% Digital Magic")
  • Hebrew: "!קסם דיגיטלי מדהים"("Amazing digital magic!")
FX/SFX: All the animation in this logo.

Music/Sounds: A whimsical string/flageolet theme, with a few "swoops" when the sparks fly in.

Availability: Seen on pre-2006 Disney DVD releases, starting with the Platinum Edition DVD of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Several of them are still in print. This logo made its final known appearance on the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey's Treat DVD, released on August 28, 2007. The logo makes a surprise appearance on the Baby Einstein Discovery Kits, which were released on November 23, 2010. It also appeared on the Region 4 2015 DVD reprints of Robin Hood, The Rescuers Down Under, Chicken Little, Lilo & Stitch, Home on the Range, The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh,Brother Bear, The Emperor's New Groove, Meet The Robinsons, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Treasure Planet, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, The Great Mouse Detective, The Rescuers and The Sword in the Stone.

Editor's Note: This is a very well-liked logo.

2nd Logo
(October 18, 2005-2014; 2015)
2nd Disney DVD logo
  • 2005-2007: "CGI Tinkerbell Redux"
  • 2007-2015: "Classic Tinkerbell"

Logo: Starts with the "D" in "DiSNEY" being formed, uncomfortably close to the screen. A spark flies by in tune with the music. When the "DiSNEY" text is formed, it flies out, and "DVD" does so as well, one letter at a time. An explosion of pixie dust forms an arc around the text, completing the logo. More pixie dust forms a white bar with the text "Movies, Magic & More" (same as above in the native language of the country in which it was released). Tinkerbell flies up to the screen momentarily before exiting (reused from the 2001 logo).

Variant: Starting in 2007, the logo was given an enhanced look, and Tinkerbell is in traditional-style 2D animation.

FX/SFX: All the animation in the logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the previous logo, with more whooshing sounds added when the "DVD" letters fly in.

Music/Sounds Variant: Sometimes the music is high-pitched (mostly on Region 4 DVD's).

Availability: Very common; can be seen on any Disney DVD made since 2005 and before 2014 such as Herbie: Fully Loaded, Chicken Little, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Wild, Underdog, WALL-E, Up, and Tinker Bell, among others. Also seen on the 2015 Region 4 DVD reprints of Fantasia 2000,Bolt, Fantasia, The Little Mermaid, Frozen, Tangled, Wreck-it-Ralph, The Princess and the Frog, The Black Cauldron, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Aladdin, Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dalmatians, Bambi, Dumbo, Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, The Aristocats, The Lion King, The Jungle Book and The Fox and the Hound (originally reprints of the 2010, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2011, 2013, 2010, 2010, 2010, 2009, 2013, 2013, 2008, 2011, 2011, 2009, 2014, 2013, 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2011 releases respectively).

Editor's Note: The sparks in the 2005 variant look superimposed on the logo, and CGI Tinkerbell oddly does not fit with this logo very well. 2D Tinkerbell works a lot better. Still, overall, this logo has fantastic CGI (and traditional animation) all around, even if it doesn't work quite as well as its predecessor.
