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.

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!

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?
