Dreamworks Animation SKG

DreamWorks Animation SKG creates high-quality family entertainment, including computer-generated (CG) animated feature films, television specials and series and live entertainment properties. With world-class creative talent and technological capabilities, DreamWorks Animation releases two or three CG animated feature films a year that deliver great stories, breathtaking visual imagery and a sensibility that appeals to both children and adults.

In 2004, DreamWorks Animation SKG became the first animation company to produce two CG animated feature films in a single year, including Shrek 2, the third highest-grossing movie of all time. In 2010, we became the first company ever to produce three CG animated feature films in a single year – How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek Forever After and Megamind – all in 3D. All of DreamWorks Animation’s feature films are now being produced in 3D. The Company has theatrically released a total of 23 animated feature films, including the franchise properties of Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon. 

With each film, we strive to tell great stories that are fun and comedic, told with a level of sophistication and irreverence that appeals to the broadest audience possible and captures the imaginations of all people regardless of age.

Our management is one of the most experienced and dynamic teams in the entertainment industry, overseeing a stellar collection of artistic and technical leaders from a wide range of backgrounds in film and animation production, computer graphics and information technology. Many of them have been with the company since its inception.

DreamWorks Animation has been named one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” by FORTUNE® Magazine for four consecutive years.
