Do you know what you’ll be doing for the next ten years? Ya, me neither. But that certainly hasn’t stopped DreamWorks Animation head Jeffrey Katzenberg from scheduling the studio’s big-name animation line-up for the next decade.
Following the far-too-delayed death of Shrek and friends and the surprising success of How to Train Your Dragon, the animation giant has announced plans for sequels galore. A “Dragon” sequel was announced shortly after the original proved it was going the distance, and that really comes as no surprise, nor was that of a follow-up to 2008’s Kung Fu Panda.
But in an announcement as bizarre as it is ambitious, Katzenberg has declared there to be at least two follow-ups to How to Train Your Dragon, a total of four “Madagascar” films and a whopping six “Pandas.” That should amount to a fair amount of bamboo in the bank.
Sequels shooting back to back are no strange trend in
Katzenberg stated: “Yeah, there’s probably a fourth there. Kung Fu Panda actually has six chapters to it, and we’ve mapped that out over the years. How to Train Your Dragon is at least three: maybe more, but we know there are at least three chapters to that story. There are actually eight books.”
So there you have it, straight from the Pandas mouth: expect to see a whole lot of lovable creatures over the next decade (if they can fit them all in); for better or for worse.
