DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters #7: The Council Head

4 Comments

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.

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.

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?
