Leave a comment

We soon arrive at our 2nd Aardman Animations film that they co-produced with DreamWorks Animation: Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Based on the popular Aardman Animations shorts, Wallace and Gromit, this 2005 film was the first (and ’til date, only) feature-length film featuring the cheese-loving inventor and his silent canine companion.

DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters #10: The Chameleon Stenographer

In 2005, DreamWorks Animation released the first film of what would be their next big franchise, Madagascar. I’ve made it clear before that I’m not a fan of these films (with the exception of the third one) and after re-watching this one, my opinion is still the same.

We now come to Shark Tale in our journey through the DreamWorks Animation Canon. Released in 2004, this film is pretty infamous for being disliked by many and considered one of the worst¬†DreamWorks Animation films ever made! But, as I mentioned in my Top 13 Animated Movies that I Like, But Everyone Else Doesn’t list, I actually like this movie. I’m not saying it’s an amazing film, but I don’t think it deserves the hatred that it gets at all!

Due to the success of their 2001 film, Shrek, it was inevitable that DreamWorks Animation would make a sequel to it. Come 2004, we got Shrek 2, the highest-grossing DreamWorks Animation film, to date, with a worldwide gross of $920 million! Most people actually love this movie way more than its predecessor. I, on the other hand, dislike this franchise in general, so I have a hard time saying which is better than the other.

In 2003, DreamWorks Animation would release their final (as of yet) theatrical hand-drawn animated film, Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, and it really is a shame! The gorgeous 2D characters and landscapes in this film make me yearn for DreamWorks Animation to embrace this medium once again, but I know that ain’t gonna happen!

Well now that he’s gone, maybe there is a chance…

I know many people have negative feelings towards this film, but I personally really enjoy it! Wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s recap the film first. (Be warned: there may be spoilers ahead!)

Continuing on through the DreamWorks Animation films, we come upon Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. Released in 2002, this traditionally-animated film tells the story of a mustang named Spirit who has multiple experiences with the human race. The film was beloved by many people although I personally am not a fan of it. But we’re here today to talk about the forgotten/minor character for this film, so let’s get on with it.

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.
