Guillermo and DreamWorks, Sittin’ in a Tree
Mr. del Toro and the animation studio best known for movies like Shrek, Kung-Fu Panda, and How to Train a Dragon, have been courting each other for some time now…but have only recently decided to taken their relationship to the next level. This is all thanks to the deal that he signed with DreamWorks Animation to produce his move “Trollhunters” and the fact that he’s slapping his executive producer title on many of their upcoming movies.
While we all know that DreamWorks doesn’t quite equal Pixar in the hearts and minds of many geeks out there, but I’ll be one of those dissenting voices…I personally enjoy DreamWorks movies on average more than the movies by Pixar.
I’d rather watch Kung-Fu Panda or the original Shrek over watching Monsters Inc again…and trust me, as a father of a 2 year old, I’ve seen them all many, many times. It’s just news like this that make me think that we’ve not even begun to see what the studio is capable of.
