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.

July 19, 2013 – Turbo

Dreamworks Animation Turbo DreamWorks Animation: 2013 2016 Line Up

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.

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.

  7. please tell me is there will be a turbo 2

  8. I have been seeing a lot of speculation about a spirit 2 or not but I was wondering if Dreamworks could give us fans an answer of if it will or could ever happen that would be great and I know that we would all appreciate another one and an answer

  9. I really would have liked to see a Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmoron 2. Such an amazing movie. My all time favourite and always will be!

  10. Spirit 2 would be awesome

  11. Make a spirit 2 im 10 and am in love With Spiritualität ans Rain i would love To see what hapens next

  12. HEY, Spirit stallion here, look i think we would really, deeply LOVE it if you guys would make a Spirit 2 Ive been waiting 17 years for the second movie to come out. Now i think all Spirit fans would like it too. So please make a second spirit. We are waiting! Thank you for yo u time. Please make a second movie. Please please please please please please…

  13. MAKE A “Spirit – stallion of the cimmaron herd” 2!! Number 2!!! Please we have had petition with over 10,000 signs!!!! Please make a spirit 2!!! :(

  14. Really looking forward for spirit 2 im 17 and i love spirit! It has been my number one movie since i was a little girl i really wish that dream works would work on spirit’s legacy! Many people really want to see this happen
    i know that ill be looking forward to it so please please try and makes this happen! <3

  15. Please please please make a Rise of the Guardians 2! It’s my favorite movie of all time!!

  16. Yesssss How to train your dragon 3!!! And there should be Raise of the guardians 2 also

  17. Dreamworks, I know things must be busy in the studios, animation takes a lot of work. But I grew up watching Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. I’ve probably seen it thousands of times. I know it was released in 2002, and that 12 years later a sequel is unlikely to ever happen, but it would mean the world to me and so many others if there was a Spirit 2. It made about 143 million in box office sales the first time around,it won so many awards, and it made such a huge impact on people that the American Paint Horse Association made Rain the first and only animated horse to ever be registered. 300: rise of an Empire is proof that sequels can come out years later and still be a HUGE success. Making a Spirit 2, especially after the Storm, son of Rain and Spirit, toy,would mean the world to so many horse fans out there. Surely you can try to find a way to reboot this lost and lovely movie?

  18. Err….that’s 122 million. Sorry
