2014 is off to a great start with the huge success of Warner Bros.’ hilarious and extremely clever hit The LEGO Movie. The animated feature films scheduled to open in the U.S. over the next few months will offer filmgoers a variety of stories, styles, and experiences that all look “awesome” to us. Marc Vibbert and Tom Fonss discuss the spring features in episode 62 of the Animation Fascination podcast. Here’s my take on what to expect with the animated features coming to theaters this spring.
DreamWorks Animation announced today that a brand new Rocky & Bullwinkle short film will be released in 2014, to coincide with the theatrical release of Mr. Peabody & Sherman, the much-anticipated 3D animated film hitting theaters next March.
DreamWorks Animation Studios has released the first official full-length trailer for their much-anticipated animated film, Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
The 3D film, directed by Rob Minkoff (Disney’s The Lion King) and starring the voice talents of Ty Burrell (TV’s Modern Family) as Mr. Peabody and Max Charles (TV’s Neighbors) as his boy, Sherman, among many others, is based on the classic Jay Ward Studios segments that were part of the Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle TV series.
Jay Ward’s timeless creations are coming back to the comic book world thanks to the good folks at IDW Publishing. The comics publisher, along with DreamWorks Classics and Bullwinkle Studios have joined forces to bring Bullwinkle J. Moose, his pal Rocky, The Flying Squirrel, the nefarious no-goodniks Boris Badenov & Natasha Fatale, and the rest of the gang to comic shops nationwide beginning this fall.
