DreamWorks executive think if they work really, really hard in 2011, they can TOTALLY take off 2012 and maybe even some of 2013. As such, they’ve established release dates for all their animated films in the pipeline, presumably telling producers and directors that if they can’t make their release dates, it’s their own damn problem.


The schedule doesn’t appear to be too consistent, averaging 2-3 releases per year in the spring, summer, and Thanksgiving. 4 of their 9 releases are either sequels or spinoffs, which seems to be the industry average for big-budget releases.

Not ones to be bested, expect Pixar to disseminate their release schedule through 3714, including a business plan to beam Cars 27 directly into people’s brains, and their plans for zero-gravity movie theaters on Mars colonies. (/Film)

‘Dragon’ Sequel To Somehow Be “Bigger” Than The Original http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dragon-sequel-to-somehow-be-bigger-than-the-original/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dragon-sequel-to-somehow-be-bigger-than-the-original/#comments Mon, 17 Jan 2011 20:04:13 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=17345 'Dragon' EP Tim Johnson sheds some light on plans for the "bigger" sequel and TV series.

The impending sequel for the critically and financially successful How to Train Your Dragon isn’t much of a surprise. Dreamwork’s logic, understandably, was, “Hey! This movie made lots of money. Let’s do that again!” Executive producer Tim Johnson spoke to Bad Taste about the logistics of another dragon-training session, saying that he expects to have the film released in the fall of 2013.

Johnson also said we can expect the sequel to be “bigger” than the original. It will be curious to see exactly how Dreamworks makes a three-dimensional movie about flying dragons “bigger.” Maybe they’re going to get Zach Galifianakis or Betty White to be in it. Or maybe Dreamworks has found a new dimension that we don’t know about and they’ll be filming the sequel in that. He let on that we can expect to see new characters in the sequel, so they won’t be staying ENTIRELY in the established universe, but I wouldn’t expect too much new ground to be broken beyond that.

Johnson also spoke to the HTTYD TV series, which is pegged to arrive on Cartoon Network in 2012. He said that the TV series will keep the tone of the original film, which he said was “darker” and “dramatic.” Expect to see lots of divorced dragons with alcohol problems who never get to see their kids.
