Dreamworks Animation Goes Sequel Crazy!

dreamworks animation goes sequel crazy

Those of us out there who have been thinking that they should release several more Kung Fu Panda movies should get ready to celebrate…because it's happening!

While we'd also be innerested in seeing some new animated projects from Dreamworks, the studio's Animation chief Jeffrey Katzenberg has decided to focus a lot of the company's energy on making lots of sequels to their existing popular franchises.

Here's Jeffrey on the future of Madagascar:

"So today I can tell you pretty succinctly where Madagascar goes. Ultimately they will come back to New York, and they will come to terms with that, which they will do in this next chapter. Because of the way that movie concludes there’s probably one more for them. Yeah, there’s probably a fourth there."

And here's the Animation chief on the future of Kung Fu Panda and How To Train Your Dragon:

"Kung Fu Panda actually has 6 chapters to it, and we’ve mapped that out over the years. How To Train Your Dragon is at least three: maybe more, but we know there are a least three chapters to that story. There are actually 8 books."

Well, we're sure you'll make lots of $$$ with these sequels, Dreamworks, but doesn't it bother you a bit that it's going to take 6 Kung Fu Pandas to tell your full story, whereas Disney/Pixar's Up did it in 96 minutes? Just sayin'!

Are U excited for tons of sequels from Dreamworks Animation movies? Or does this seem like overkill?

    Dreamworks is obsess with rushing to put out crappy movies and sequels, making money and being popular, unlike Pixar who put a lot of thought and car into their projects they rarley do sequels and when they do it's not just a second thought to cash in they make the sequels just as great as the original.

    They pretty much just ran out of ideas and are desperately looking to make money anyways. Pixar > Dreamworks Animation anyway.

    Before anyone says Pixar is awesome Dreamworks sucks all they make is crappy sequels. Remember that Pixars next set of movies are squeals Cars 2 and monsters inc 2. Plus they have already made 2 sequels to toy story. Yes that is a lot of sequels for dreamworks but each of the stories have already been written out its not like they are trying to cash in by randomly making shit up and selling it. they purposely picked them because of the sequel potential. Its like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. Its a series.

    Sequels can be a good thing. However, SIX Kung Fu movies seems really excessive. Disney has it's fair share of crappy sequels, too! The straight to DVD kind! If they put as much into each sequel story it could be good, but they rarely do!
