The Mediawan Thematics is a French business group in the field of broadcasting.

It was founded in 1977 by Jean-Luc Azoulay and Claude Berda as a music production company, and in 1987 went into the world of television.

In English speaking regions, Mediawan Thematics is best known for their English dub of the Dragon Ball Z films that were aired on Toonami UK and released on DVD out-of-order in the Netherlands. This dub features a then unknown cast and became known as the "Big Green dub" because Piccolo's name was changed to "Big Green". Mediawan Thematics's dub of Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest was released on DVD by Warner Vision in the UK under the name "The Strongest Guy In The World" in 2003.[1]

Mediawan Thematics also distributed the Blue Water Studios dubs of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball GT in Canada and Europe.
