List RulesOnly movies featuring Zorro as a main character.

Since the first official adaptation of Zorro in 1920, the masked hero has returned to the screen dozens of times. From TV shows and feature films to the earliest serials, Zorro stories are regularly being remade, adapted for the modern era, or the inspiration for an homage.

Disney has produced several Zorro TV shows and movies, like the 1958 Sign of Zorro or both the 1957 and the 1990 Zorro television series. Already a popular subject for movie serials in the '40s, Zorro movies were made in Italy at a rapid pace in the '60s, with multiple films released a year, like L’Ombra di Zorro, El Zorro la Volpe, and even Zorro Contro Maciste (retitled Sampson and the Slave Queen).

Adaptations of the Zorro character can be official or unofficial, with Zorro Productions controlling the trademarks and copyrights to the Zorro character. Almost all Zorro movies and shows are official but some are note, including the telenovela Zorro: La Espada y la Rosa and the anime Kaiketsu Zorro.

Whether you love them for their particular take on one of the earliest masked avengers, for their cheesiness, or how well they adapt the stories, which Zorro shows or movies are the best?
