Silent Bob Posted July 21, 2003 Share Posted July 21, 2003 Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas will be the last hand-drawn full-length animated film ever produced by Dreamworks. The film reportedly cost $70 million to make and has only made $23.3 million so far, prompting Dreamworks' decision. Jeffrey Katzenberg, who once helmed Disney animation through some of its biggest hits before moving on to help found Dreamworks, has told the New York Times "I think the idea of a traditional story being told using traditional animation is a thing of the past." Personally, as a long-time animation fan, I find an attitude like that from someone like him to be saddening. On that same note, IMDb recently posted a survey about this question, and an overwhelming 73% (or so) said that they would still go see a hand-drawn animated film if the story was a good one. But in Hollywood, it doesn't matter what people say, it matters what they pay for. So what do you guys think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
