Amblin Entertainment is a company founded by Creator/StevenSpielberg in 1981, originally serving as his main production company. It is named after Spielberg's first completed film, a short called ''Amblin''. From 1991 to 1997, the company had an animation unit called Creator/{{Amblimation}}.

Largely due to Spielberg's clout, Amblin became one of the biggest independent production companies in Hollywood. Its best-known output was released during TheEighties, when Spielberg oversaw the production of blockbuster family comedy/adventure films such as ''Film/TheGoonies'' and the ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' trilogy. Nowadays, the term "Amblin-esque" is used frequently by entertainment websites to describe the tone of recent movies and television series influenced by the aforementioned films, including ''Series/StrangerThings''.

In December 2015, Amblin underwent a major reorganization and became a unit of the new [[Creator/DreamWorks Amblin Partners]]. Under this structure, it will focus primarily on family-themed films.
