Updated Calendar of Features

DreamWorks Animation has updated its oncoming list of movies, to wit:


Penguins of Madagascar -- November 26th


Home -- March 27th

B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations -- June 5th

Kung Fu Panda 3 -- December 23rd


Boss Baby -- March 18th

How to Train Your Dragon 3 -- June 17th

Trolls -- November 4th


Captain Underpants -- January 13th

Mumbai Musical -- March 10th

The Croods 2 -- November 3rd


Larrikins -- February 16th

Madagascar 4 -- May 18th

Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves -- November 2nd

If memory serves, Larrikens is the first Australian-set animated feature for J. Katzenberg since The Rescuers Down Under in 1990.

We'll note here that DreamWorks Animation has various features coming out of different studios. (The company has studios in China, India and Redwood City, California in addition to its Glendale campus).

I watched Dragons 2 today (terrific film, by the way) and noticed that DWA's India facility is in the movie's credits. That studio has done sequences of other features, and I've been informed that it will be turning out a complete feature in the not-too-distant future.

Staffers inform me that most story work on the features happen in Glendale, with some work in Redwood City. Beyond the long-form entertainments listed above, there's development being done for other animated features to be released in the Chinese market. How far along these pictures are, or when they'll be completed and rolled out, I know not.
