Seeking Alpha runs the numbers and tells us what Disney execs probably already know, Dreamworks and Pixar’s duopoly on CG Animation is over.
One need look no further than this month’s box office for another indication. What happened this month? Well, the animated penguin musical Happy Feet had a great opening weekend …. They even beat out the newest James Bond film.
I’m not sure I agree. One good weekend out of a year of poorly performing computer animated films does not a coup make. If anything, I think the absense of a CG property from Pixar or Disney is making it easier to make this argument. Dreamworks lost their dominance a long time ago.
