Episode 160: Shrek, Dreamworks Origin and Amblimation

April 27, 2021

A little bird told us that Shrek is celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2021. So Rachael and Evan are here to look back on the film that truly made DreamWorks Animation a real force in the industry. We look back ad DWA's first films and dive into the Studio's origins and how it's connected to the short-lived animation studio Amblimation. Besides Shrek, we also talk The Prince Of Egypt, We're Back: a Dinosaur's Story, Balto and more!
