Cannes - Jeffrey Katzenberg had quite the Cannes. "How To Train Your Dragon 2" played out of competition with a standing ovation from the festival faithful and he found himself awarded Commander of the Order Of Arts And Letters by the French government. It all coincides with the 20th Anniversary of DreamWorks (although DreamWorks' first animated film didn't arrive until 1998) and was some welcome good news for Katzenberg and Dwa. One of the most influential and powerful entertainment executives in the world, Katzenberg took an hour over the weekend for an intimate sitdown with HitFix, Indiewire and Movie City News. It was a frank conversation touching on everything from the future of the global marketplace, the new competition for animated films, the future of his slate, the future of the "Dragon" franchise and just how and when Dwa will jump back into movie musicals. Directed and written once again by Dean DeBlois, »
