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!

I don’t understand it….I just don’t understand it. I’m not complaining, but I just don’t get it. I don’t get it at all! Maybe I just can’t see it? Maybe I’m just not the smartest bulb among a group of vegetables? I mean, Dreamworks Animation’s fate was hanging by a thread; it needed a savior. THIS film was the savior?! I mean, Disney was in a similar situation years ago and Cinderella saved them which is something I can understand. But, Home is Dreamworks Animation’s savior?!

Alright, let’s just talk about the movie.

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?

Well, 2013 is about to come to an end, so you know what that means!

"I think it means that it's time for us to look back at our year and see what progress we have made, learn from our mistakes, make amends for whatever wrongs we have committed, ..."

“I think it means that it’s time for us to look back on this year and see what progress we have made, learn from our mistakes, make amends for whatever wrongs we have committed, …”

No, it means that I’m going on vacation!

"Huh...that was totally not what I was thinking!"

“Huh…that was totally not what I was thinking!”

Yep, I’m gonna be gone for about a week, so I thought that I should leave you all with something before I go. And what better thing to leave you with than a preview of what next year has to offer in animated films!

So sit back and relax while we take a look at the animated full-length theatrical films that shall be released next year complete with synopses (if available), trailers/posters (if available), and American release dates (if available). I hope you all enjoy! More

Well, we’ve left the glorious age of the Disney Renaissance

It's ok! You may cry!

It’s ok! You may cry!

and are now in what I like to call, “The…Post-Disney Renaissance/Modern Age”. During this era, the animated Disney features would stop being nigh unanimous critical and commercial hits and would be like they were in the ’70s-’80s, i.e. some would be hits and others wouldn’t.

And today’s film not only showcases its post-Disney Renaissance quality, but also brings us back to the format of package films! More
