Z&jProductions has produced three films in the Med-Evil Ghost franchise, as well as the critically acclaimed Scissor: Dawn of a New Game and The Great War Part I.
Z&jProductions was founded on 18 April 2017, originally known as Z & j Movies. Despite its name, Z & j Movies was originally meant to primarily be a television studio, however it would still rarely produce films. Z&jProductions' first film The Doll was released on 19 April 2017. Z&jProductions produced a number of comedic film trailer sketches from April to early May. Z&jProductions' second film, Batman v Superman: The Better Version, a parody of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), was released on 11 July 2017. Filming took place over a three-day long period, between 8 July and 11 July. It was shown at the Gif Movie Theatre on 12 July. Z&jProductions released two films in October, When Nibiru Comes and Sad Death Day. When Nibiru Comes is a disaster film, following the story of NASA scientists trying to build a spaceship after they find out the planet Nibiru is going to crush into Earth in 10 years time. Sad Death Day is a horror film and parody of Happy Death Day (2017). Z&jProductions officially adopted its current name on November 2017. The Demented Computer was released on 10 November, and is a horror film distributed by Z&jProductions but created by Zfilms. The film took over four rewrites to finish over a period of more than four months. The last film released by Z&jProductions in 2017 was the superhero film Sticky Hand.
Z&jProductions released 8 films in 2018, and predominantly made action and comedy films. It also became apparent than Z&jProductions would completely remove its brand as a part-time television studio, and did not produce any web-series in that time. The first instalment to the Star Warz franchise, parody of Star Wars, was their first film released this year, Star Warz: Episode I - The Second to Last Jed-Eye on 25 January. Z&jProductions released a 2018 version of Guns Out Fire (2014) on 14 February, remastered and slightly edited. Z&jProductions went on to release three films in March, सर्वश्रेष्ठ बॉलीवुड मूवी कभी (Best Bollywood Movie Ever), a parody of bollywood musicals on 14 March, and two films on 27 March, the first and currently only time two films were released on the same day, Fortnite: The (un)OFFICIAL Movie, a real life adaptation of the video game Fortnite, and Beneath the Summer Skies: A Toilet Paper Love Story, a comedy-romance drama film focusing on sentient toilet papers. The critically acclaimed The Great War Part I was released on 12 April, and The Doll: Origins, a prequel to The Doll, was released on 19 April, exactly one year after the first film. Z&jProductions distributed Scissor: Dawn of a New Game, a horror film which was created by Farkasok és Szar Studios and Zfilms on 12 October.
Z&jProductions adopted its current logo in January 2019.
