Lana Wachowski (born June 21, 1965) and Lilly Wachowski (born December 29, 1967), known together as the Wachowski Sisters (formerly referred to as the Wachowski Brothers prior to their transitions[[note]]previously named Laurence "Larry" Wachowski and Andrew Paul "Andy" Wachowski respectively[[/note]]), are American film directors, screenwriters, video game directors, and producers.

They're perhaps best known as the creators of ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' franchise, having written, directed, and executive produced all three of its cinematic entries and two video games, [[VideoGame/EnterTheMatrix including one with 40 minutes of live-action footage]]. Other films they had a hand in creating include ''Film/VForVendetta'', ''Film/CloudAtlas'', and ''Film/JupiterAscending''.

They're also the creators of Creator/{{Netflix}}'s ''Series/{{Sense8}}'', their television debut.

Lana and Lilly are notable for both being UsefulNotes/{{transgender}} women, having transitioned as adults later into their careers - notably, Lana openly transitioned following the release of ''Film/SpeedRacer'' in 2008 (and after years of rumors dating back to the ''Matrix'' sequels), and Lilly opened up about her status in 2016.[[note]] This is why a side-note includes their previous names; while deadnaming a trans person is usually considered disrespectful, odds are that most cuts of their works which were first released before 2008 (i.e., virtually any of the tens of millions of copies of the ''Matrix'' films) that a reader will encounter are going to use their pre-transition names in the credits, so those are included on the page to avoid confusion.[[/note]]
