DreamWorks Animation has acquired Classic Media
In news that has come out of nowhere, Dreamworks Animation has bought the North American company Classic Media, a company that has been in charge of the Voltron anime series and the Godzilla TOHO films. The purchase was made for $155 million. Interestingly, both companies may cancel the purchase by October 20th. I will quote a paragraph from Anime News Network from what Classic Media has in terms of Licenses.
Are the g1s surprised at this sudden announcement?
I saw what you did there.
Sorry (and fortunately), it's already been done...
OMG THE HORRORS!
Now make a Frosty Vs. Rudolph shitty 50's stop motion movie, it will be an instant classic.
Well I'm trying to not hunt him down for what he did to Transformers. He touches Voltron he's a goner....
I could not imagine any of these holdings being successful with full CG in theaters. Pretty much all of them have already had failed remakes.
They better keep Michael Bay away from Voltron, so help me god. I swear if he goes ANYWHERE NEAR THAT SERIES I WILL KILL HIM!!!!
This is great news =) and yes... would love to see Dreamworks now make a good Rocky and Bullwinkle movie!
