How Many Animated Chattering Animal Pictures Can There Be??

Apparently there is an endless supply ...

THis one comes from Europe, specifically Belgium. ...

Lionsgate is releasing the movie. Lionsgate is all-in for animated fare, having brought us Norm of the North and Shaun the Sheep in the recent past. The distribution company clearly buys into the Golden Hollywood Rule: "If you've got a screenload of cute furry beasts, and the speak fluent smart-ass," you own a box-office winner"

Of course, Seth Rogan is transferring this rule into the universe of anthropomorphic food, so we'll see how that tweaking of the basic law works out. Our opinion? If the budget isn't in the stratosphere, the production companies will likely get their investments back; maybe even be a little to the good side. But so far, none of these pics are setting the global market afire the way Pixar/Disney/DreamWorks/Bule Sky often do.

This year is certainly shaping up to be the year of all things talking animal in animated features. I suppose we should've been prepared for it sooner or later!
