Mediawan Thematics (formerly known as AB Groupe) is a French business group in the field of broadcasting.

It was founded in 1977 by Jean-Luc Azoulay and Claude Berda as a music production company, and in 1987 went into the world of television.

In English speaking regions, Mediawan Thematics is best known for their English dub of the Dragon Ball Z films that were aired on Toonami UK and released on DVD out-of-order in the Netherlands. This dub featured a then unknown cast and was titled as the "Big Green dub" by fans of Dragon Ball Z, since Piccolo's name was changed to "Big Green". Mediawan Thematics's dub of Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest was released on DVD by Warner Vision in the UK under the name "The Strongest Guy In The World" in 2003.[1]

Mediawan Thematics also distributed the Blue Water Studios dubs of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball GT in Canada and Europe.

On October 11, 2018, AB Groupe was rebranded to Mediawan Thematics after the purchase by Mediawan in 2017.
