Hyperion Pictures (a.k.a. Hyperion Films or Hyperion Studios) is an American film production company founded by Thomas L. Wilhite, who had previously been the head of motion picture and television produced for and owned by Walt Disney Productions, and writer/director Willard Carroll. The company produces both live-action and animated productions such as The Brave Little Toaster and The Runestone.

Hyperion's most recent release was the musical romantic comedy Marigold, filmed in India. Due to the film's poor reception,[1][2] the majority of their productions such as Crawl and a CGI remake of The Brave Little Toaster have long since been in Development Hell.

A subsidiary of the company is Jambalaya Studios which has produced animated television series and feature films such as The Proud Family, Da Boom Crew, Bebe's Kids and The Proud Family Movie.

The company's mascot was Leslie McGroarty from Itsy Bitsy Spider, who appears in its production logo.
