Tons of Dreamworks Animation Release News!

Dreamworks has released a buttload (don’t worry… it’s an industry term) of information regarding their animation release slate through 2014. Lucky for lazy people like me, Coming Soon has compiled it into one easily digestible post.

One interesting tidbit is the announcement of “Turbo”:

Turbo will be released on June 7, 2013. It is being directed by David Soren (Merry Madagascar), who first brought the project to the studio, and produced by Lisa Stewart (Monsters vs. Aliens). It is being written by Darren Lemke (Shrek Forever After) together with Soren. Turbo tells the story of an ordinary garden snail with an impossible dream: to become the fastest snail in the world. When a freak accident gives him extraordinary speed, Turbo sets out to try to make this dream come true.

I feel like it’s a solid slate overall, but I know there is going to be at least one really nice looking shiny pot in the bunch that we later find out is made from recycled cat turds.

For more information on the slate, including news of “Madagascar 3” and details on the “How to Train Your Dragon Sequel,” click the Dreamworks logo. For more information on my pottery making, hit up davesawesomepotsmadefromcatturds.com.

Director Dean Deblois Talks “How to Train Your Dragon” Sequel

February 8, 2011 Leave a comment

The epic Director of the epic film, “How to Train Your Dragon,” has said the epic sequel will be way more epic!

From Latino Review:

Sequels must be bigger and better.

The sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon” will be “quite epic,” described Dean DeBlois, who co-directed the first film.

“It’s going to be quite epic,” said Deblois. “We are treating ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ as the first act in a much larger story. As we head into this one, the world expands. Everything is much bigger with still the heartfelt qualities that made the first one resonate so much with audiences. There are no longer restrictions to this tiny island in the North Sea. They have the entire Northern hemisphere within their grasp.”

DeBlois will write and direct the sequel. His original film’s co-director Chris Sanders will serve as executive producer for the sequel.

“The only way of tracing the story is to draw on elements that were in the first movie and set up for elements for a third movie, so it doesn’t feel like a random adventure with the same five or six characters. This truly is a second chapter in a larger story,” he said.

Bonnie Arnold will return as a producer for the sequel. She provided more plot details on the sequel.

“It’s going to be more fun adventures with Hiccup and Toothless,” she added. “There will be some new dragons and maybe some new characters. It’s the further adventures of Hiccup on his journey of becoming a man and the ultimate leader of the Viking clan.”

Epic.
