DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters #8: The Muffin Man

2 Comments

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.

Let’s talk a bit about a man named Richard Rich.

Richard Rich was an employee at Walt Disney Studios. He started in the mail room and worked his way up until he became an animation director as well as co-director for films such as “The Fox and the Hound” and “The Black Cauldron”.

In 1986, he left Disney to form his own animation studios called¬†“Rich Animation Studios”, now known as “Crest Animation Productions”.

“And yet somehow you like him and dislike me?”

"That's the way the cookie crumbles, Don!"

“That’s the way the cookie crumbles, Don!”

For this studio, Richard Rich would produce and/or direct many animated films including “The King and I”, “The Scarecrow”, “The Trumpet of the Swan”, “Muhammad: The Last Prophet”, “Alpha and Omega”, “The Little Engine That Could”, and a handful of educational/religious direct-to-video releases among others. But his most famous film by far is the subject of this review, “The Swan Princess”. More

Sigh…

I REALLY REALLY was not looking forward to re-watching “Winnie the Pooh”¬†for two reasons! The first reason was, as I’ve talked about in other posts, I REALLY don’t like this movie! And the second reason was that I had so much trouble picking a forgotten/minor character for “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh”, and now I’d have to go through all that trouble again. I mean, who’s forgotten/minor in the “Winnie the Pooh” franchise?! UGH!!! Moving on… More
