Except FA will be an Aardman stop-motion animation - not CG. And I think Aardman (distributed by DreamWorks) announced their project first, but I'm not sure... :|

Yes I think Flushed Away has been announced for some time now!

How do you know this is true? It could be the other way around. After all, SharkTale was in development before Nemo. :roll:

Couple of thoughts. 1) Flushed Away has been announced long before the Pixar rat movie. 2) Flushed Away is a CG film. Although it started out as stopmotion, it is now all CG

Something has to be going on, though. These "coincidences" are becoming too routine. Who's to blame, though, I don't know. In fact, it really doesn't necessarily matter which project is announced first, considering the fact that one of the studios may have inside information coming from a worker in the other studio.

You know, a movie about a guy who's a spy in a studio for another studio kind of sounds pretty good...

If I remember correctly, I think disney had to make changes to Home on the Range due to similarities with Sprit Stallion of the Cimmoron

Yeah because originally HOTR was called "Sweatin' Bullets", about a horse named Bullets. (I think). There were too many similarities so that's why they made the film about cows instead.

It does make you wonder.... :roll:

It's not about who announced it first, or who started developing it first... it is about who makes it better

Example: ABC got the rights to Wife Swap and in 'jealousy,' FOX started to make very 'similar' Trading Spouses. FOX developed and released Trading Spouses first, but it greatly lags the original Wife Swap.

Who copied who is only known to the people at Pixar and Dreamworks, personally I think it is Dreamworks who copies Pixar, but I could be wrong.

That may not be the best example askmike1! Trading Spouses may be a skunk, but Wife Swap is still garbage. While I'd rather be around garbage than a skunk, you can't get around the fact that they both still stink!

Ok, here's a better example, ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, vs. copycat Fox's Renovate My Family. I hope we all agree the ABC version is much better and more magical. I'm sure there are better examples, but I think the whole Fox copying ABC is good enough.

"reality" television sucks anyway.

i think its annoying how people keep going, they are copying, blah blah blah blah.

it comes up EVERY time a new project is released, its getting so old guys.

everything is copied in one form or another, wether intentional or not. Every movie in history will have some type of grounding in shakespeare, and he copied his material off his understudies, so there! lol :roll:
