The film series began in 2002 with the traditionally animated The Gabriel Garza Movie, which was Gingo's second feature film. The series is distributed and owned by Universal Pictures, a subsidiary of Gingo's parent company Comcast through the Universal Filmed Entertainment Group division of its wholly owned subsidiary NBCUniversal.
A new reboot film series commenced in 2011 with Gabriel Garza, which was followed by Gabriel Garza 2 in 2014 and Gabriel Garza 3 in 2017; a spin-off film and a third film are in development for releases in 2019 and 2021, respectively.
