DreamWorks Animation 2013 2016 Lineup DreamWorks Animation: 2013 2016 Line Up

Now that the ink has dried on DreamWorks Animation’s new distribution deal with 20th Century Fox, the studio is ready to show off their slate of upcoming feature films.

However, rather than announce one or two films for next year, DreamWorks has unveiled their entire line-up from 2013 through to 2016, which includes How to Train Your Dragon 2 and 3Kung-Fu Panda 3, an adaptation of Mr. Peabody and Sherman, a number of original properties, and more.

Last time DreamWorks announced an upcoming slate, they outlined a plan that included releasing up to three films a year. At least one of those films would be an original creation, while the other two would likely be a sequel. However, this new slate will feature many more non-sequels and a few adaptations of popular properties.


March 22, 2013 – The Croods

July 19, 2013 – Turbo

Here’s the synopsis for Turbo:

Turbo is a snail who dreams of being the greatest racer in the world, just like his hero, 5-time Indianapolis 500 champ, Guy Gagne. His obsession with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community, and a constant embarrassment to his careful older brother, Chet. Turbo desperately wishes he could escape the slow-paced life he’s living. As luck would have it, he gets that chance one fateful day after a freak accident when he suddenly finds himself vested with the power of incredible speed. Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible: racing against the best that IndyCar has to offer.

Ryan Reynolds will be providing the voice for Turbo, and will joined by the likes of Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, and Ken Jeong for this “fish out of water” story. The film is based on an original script from David Soren, who will also be directing.


November 1, 2013 – Mr. Peabody & Sherman

A big screen adaptation of the popular Rocky and Bullwinkle side cartoon, Mr. Peabody & Sherman follows the exploits of a boy and his dog. However, in a total role reversal, it is Mr. Peabody the dog that has all the brains, and Sherman the boy that is his loyal companion.

The Lion King director Rob Minkoff will be helming the film, with Ty Burrell (Modern Family) providing the voice for Mr. Peabody and Max Charles (Amazing Spider-Man) voicing Sherman. Rounding out the cast will be celebrated actors like Allison Janey, Richard Jenkins, and Stephen Tobolowsky.

  1. Spirit 2 please

  2. Hi, I wanted to know if it’s true that Dreamworks in making a Spirit 2. It’s a wonderful movie with a great story line. People have already made a second story line to keep some people happy, but it’s not the same as having the movie. Everybody has been saying there should be a second one and I agree. So I would really like to hear from the Dreamworks company on if they plan to make a second Spirit.

  3. We are on an 8 hour drive and our 1 year old is currently viewing Spirit for the second time. Please make a Spirit 2. The horse crazy kids and their parents would be forever grateful.

Some people think it’s going to be a foal that goes through something like his/her dad went through but think about how many kids would like that(if it was ever made), and as for us older people that have seen it before we’d love to see something else done, because the story line was so amazing.
