Today, we take a look at the 2001 DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek. The massive success of this film not only led to multiple sequels and spin-offs, but also made DreamWorks Animation a worthy competitor to Disney and Pixar.

Moving along in our DreamWorks Canon, we come across the first of 3 films that they co-produced with Aardman Animations, Chicken Run. Released in 2000, the stop-motion film was a critical and commercial success and to this day, it’s the highest-grossing stop-motion film!

The 3rd entry in DreamWorks Animation’s films is the 2000 film, The Road to El Dorado. I’ve already reviewed the film, so I won’t go over the plot or my thoughts on the film again. If you wanna see my review (although my feelings towards the film have become a bit more positive since that first viewing), please click here.

With that out of the way, let’s get to talking about the forgotten/minor character that I chose for this film.

DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters #2: Tzipporah’s Sisters

1 Comment

Today, we take a look at DreamWorks Animation’s 1998 biblical film, The Prince of Egypt. Now, this is a film that I have never seen nor do I plan to as I have personal religious beliefs against watching movies wherein prophets and/or God are portrayed by people, be they live or via voice. But, I couldn’t skip this for my Forgotten/Minor Characters project, so my good friend AnimatedKid (animatedkid.wordpress.com), offered to write this post for me. So I hope you enjoy!

‘Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie’ Trailer Debuts!

9 Comments

We have finally gotten a trailer for Dreamworks Animation’s upcoming film, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.

The film honestly doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would be. Then again, 2017 is such a weak year for animation that it doesn’t take much to make me optimistic. I quite enjoy the animation style of this film, but I do feel the story will be quite predictable. I also feel that Kevin Hart is quite mismatched for his character as it just feels odd to hear his voice come out of that character.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie features the voices of Ed Helms, Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, and Nick Kroll. It will hit theaters on June 2, 2017. Do you plan to see it?

DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters #1: Muffy the Wasp

We start off the DreamWorks Animation Canon by taking a look at its first film, the 1998 Antz. At first glance, it seems to have a lot in common with the 1998 Pixar film, A Bug’s Life, so much so that there was a whole big controversy going on at the time between the two companies because Jeffrey Katzenberg had apparently stolen the idea when he left Disney and co-founded DreamWorks Animation. But, in terms of story and tone, the films are quite different.

The ‘Forgotten/Minor Characters Project’ is Coming Back!

Hello readers,

I’m here to bring you an exciting announcement….well, at least I think it’s exciting. For those of you who have been following me since I started, the first project I did on my blog was a Forgotten/Minor Characters project for the Disney Canon. Basically, I watched the entire Disney Canon and wrote a post for each film talking about a forgotten/minor character (or characters) from the film. It was quite popular and I later did it with the Pixar Canon as well. (You can find these posts underneath the Indexes drop-down menu above.)

Now, I thought it was time to do another project on my blog, so I decided to bring back the Forgotten/Minor Characters project and do the Dreamworks Canon now. This is going to be an interesting one and I hope you all join me along for the ride!
