Animated Films for 2006: the onslaught

Cartoonbrew takes a look at the 14 (15) Computer Generated Animated films scheduled for wide release in 2006.

Will all of them succeed – or will Hollywood’s CG boom implode? Can the
already-eroding moving-going audience support a steady stream of
similar sounding pictures? Can the DVD backend for such derivative
material maintain the level of sales required for the producers to
recoup their investments? Most importantly, can all these films be good?

I’m afraid this trend will continue as making computer generated films gets easier and cheaper. Alas, telling a good story remains difficult, so we have a lot of mediocre films to look foward to.
