Jackson Ball thinks the tide may be turning in the animation war between Pixar and DreamWorks...
Since the release of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs way back in 1937, animation has been big business, none more so than in contemporary Hollywood. In just the last month the Us and UK box-offices have been topped by not one, but two animated films: Monsters University and Despicable Me 2. So clearly, animation is an important component of the modern film industry and two studios in particular have dominated the genre in recent years.
In terms of filmmaking rivalries, there have been few bigger in recent years than that between Pixar and DreamWorks Animation. Both parties have had huge success, with Pixar claiming the most critical acclaim (12 Academy Awards) and DreamWorks having their fair share of commercial triumph (Shrek 2 made over $900,000,000 worldwide, a then record for animation record).
