Despicable Me 3

Post by Dacey » December 14th, 2016, 11:31 am

First trailer debuts online ahead of presumed Rogue One (or Sing) theatrical attachment:



Also, interesting thing from the plot summary...

The team who brought you Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015

I dunno. For some reason I feel like there was another animated movie in 2013 which was a bigger hit that year.

Fun enough, but not quite up there with the others (or even the Minions movie).

I love Despicable Me. I have seen all of them but I wasn't happy with the last part about England. That awesome trailer, funny and I hope the whole movie will be funny. Anyway I'm going to cinema tomorrow with my son( I think I'm more excited then my son). I know this forum is about Despicable Me, but I wan to know feedback from anyone who saw Baby Boss? I have this animated movie on my hard drive.

So the Minions "Holiday" Special was literally nothing new. All shorts from previous DVD releases (and only one with a Christmas theme), plus commercial bumpers and old seasonal trailers used to add to the "holiday" aspect of it all. Didn't even have funny narration or anything to attempt to string it all together.

Of course Covid has meant a decrease in new content this year, but even then, it would've made more sense for NBC to air that old Grinch documentary alongside its animated counterpart again instead of this.

DreamWorks also has a history of just dumping spare bonus content from discs and other media and calling it a "special"--
One of their "Spooky Stories" on their Netflix Halloween specials is no less than the movie from the Universal Studios theme-park attraction, while one of the collection of "additional stories" for HTTYDragon is, in fact, the backstory intro sequence to the video game.

Let's be honest, other studios just don't understand the Disney/Pixar work-ethic of making new stuff for network specials.

(Except that both are owned by Warner.)

Where should I start? By mentioning that DreamWorks Animation has made more fully animated network holiday specials than Disney and Pixar combined since Shrek the Halls, or by pointing out that The Grinch was literally shown on NBC last night. :?

What, and let facts get in the way of a stream of consciousness?

The Ghost of Lord Farquaad clocks in at 12 minutes. Not a movie and hardly a short. Very cool, though!

It’s the footage that was shown in the Shrek 4D ride at the Universal theme parks. It got its own release as a repurposed short film on DVD before being absorbed into DWA's collection of specials and shorts.
