I have some exciting news to share with you all! Comcast purchased DreamWorks Animation, creators of popular movies like How To Train Your Dragon, Shrek and Kung Fu Panda. What will this mean for the future of entertainment? In the business sense, it means they’re gaining a BUNCH of awesome content that will be available to customers. As far as technology goes, the partnership between Comcast and another like-minded company shows their commitment to the best in animation and entertainment. XFINITY believes in thinking towards the future and making advancements for its customers.
Why am I excited about this? Not only will we get to see some of our favorite animated movies, but there’s also the chance that they will make new movies or shows with some of our favorite characters! I would tune in for a Shrek TV show! My daughter is obsessed with all things Kung Fu Panda so she would be excited about being able to watch any of the movies on demand or having a sleepover for new content. In fact I need to go ahead and start looking at Pinterest for some fun Kung Fu Panda party ideas to celebrate. The possibilities are endless!
Not only that, but I also found this tidbit:
It also includes a thriving TV operation that is a significant supplier of family programming, with hundreds of hours of original, animated content distributed across linear and SVOD platforms in more than 130 countries. Additionally, DreamWorks Classics, a large library of classic characters, including Where’s Waldo, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, will become part of the NBCUniversal portfolio, along with a successful consumer products business.
Rudolph is my FAVORITE animated film for the holidays so I know I will be able to stream it on demand or tune in. I love when news like this is announced because the possibilities are endless.
