DreamWorks Animation has added two more feature toons to their 2021 slate... The Bad Guys on Sept. 17, based on Aaron Blabey’s bestselling Scholastic book series. 

 

The Bad Guys follows five notorious villains–Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Piranha, Mr. Shark and Ms. Tarantula–who’ve spent a lifetime together pulling off big heists. The animated project is said to have a similar twist on the heist genre that Shrek did on fairy tales, and what Kung Fu Panda did for the kung fu genre. Pic marks the feature directorial debut of Pierre Pierfel, a DWA vet who came up through the ranks as the director of the award-winning short Bilby, and as an animator on the Kung Fu Panda franchise.

Etan Cohen (Tropic ThunderGet Hard) and Hilary Winston (NBC’s Community and My Name is Earl) wrote the script. Damon Ross (co-producer, Nacho Libre) and Rebecca Huntley (co-producer Abominable, associate producer, The Boss Baby) will produce. EPs are Blabey, Cohen, Patrick Hughes and Jeff Berg. The Bad Guys spent 50 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List counts 8 million copies sold worldwide.

In fact, most major studios haven’t paused animation productions during COVID-19, with pics like Spin Master’s Paw Patrol: The Movie (due out August 20, 2021), Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon and Pixar’s Soul, DWA’s Croods 2, The Boss Baby 2, The Bad Guys and Spirit Riding Free continuing to be in full operation with artists and filmmakers working remotely.

Yeah, either this week or the next one with Sing 2

The Universal Pictures India Twitter said trailer tomorrow. Just in time for Sing 2.

Trailer soon-ish?

I also like how the ransom note uses the fonts of various Dreamworks movies like Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Spirit, Megamind, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda and tv shows like Trollhunters and She-Ra.

This looks like fun. The jokes were pretty good, the animation looks great but the choice of music (Bad Guy) was too on the nose. It also kind of looks like a Megamind redux but who knows it may surprise.

This movie is sitting on a shelf completely/near-finished and a prime March 11 date just opened up. Might be a good idea to avoid competition from Sonic 2 and FB3...

It also gives Peacock a big new film to follow Marry Me.
