Dreamworks Animation’s latest film, Home, surprised many critics and audiences by opening at the #1 spot in the weekend box office with a $52 million gross! The film, which many (myself included) deemed it sure to fail provided a much-needed boost to the already-faltering Dreamworks Animation.
Did you see the film? How was it? Do you think Dreamworks Animation can pull itself out from under?

Wow, this is the 3rd Pixar movie in which I’ve had difficulty selecting a forgotten/minor character and ended up having to go with a character that was unseen, or in this case, not even mentioned. Good job at stumping me, Pixar!
“No need to thank us. It’s the least we can do as American citizens!”
Anyway, today’s forgotten/minor character is from Pixar’s 9th film and winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, WALL-E. (Warning: this post will have spoilers!)

In what comes as no surprise to anyone, Disney has officially announced that they’re developing a sequel to their billion-dollar film, Frozen. The original team is set to develop the sequel. For more information, check out the Variety article here.
I personally am not excited about this. I feel Frozen should remain its own movie and not have a sequel, much less a sequel in the official Canon. But, the original movie was a huge success, so there’s no reason why this film will become a flop for Disney.
Are you all excited for this? Let me know in the comments below!
