**Throughout the mid-late 2010's, they also became this to Creator/IlluminationEntertainment, who shares very similar tropes to [=DreamWorks=]. When Universal snapped up [=DreamWorks=], both became sister studios (''à la'' Disney/Pixar).

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Takes this trope ''beyond'' Pixar levels in almost all of their films.


Added DiffLines:

* ToiletHumor: [=DreamWorks=] has played with this trope very frequently, even dwarfing that of Pixar's use. They eventually started falling out of love with it by the late 2000's when audiences grew sick of it, though it still pops up occasionally.

In 2014, DWA acquired the distribution rights to all of its pre-2013 theatrical films from Paramount. The rights are currently licensed to 20th Century Fox in conjunction with the current distribution deal (which explains why Fox distributed recent DVD and Blu-ray rereleases of ''Shrek'', ''Madagascar'', ''Shark Tale'' and ''Over the Hedge'').

Originally arch-rivals with [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney]] in [[TheNineties the 1990s]], they became arch-rivals with Creator/{{Pixar}} in [[TurnOfTheMillennium the 2000s]], and now they're kind-of sort-of arch-rivals with both studios in [[TheNewTens the 2010s]]. Disney alum Jeffrey Katzenberg produced more animated films through his studio alone than Creator/WaltDisney did when he was alive! While the quality of the films had been more inconsistent than Disney, the best of the bunch managed to reach for Disney and Pixar quality (with ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' sharing a director team with ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''). In fact, in 2011, DWA ''exceeded'' them in critical reception with ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' ([[RottenTomatoes RT]] 81%) and ''WesternAnimation/PussInBoots'' (RT 84%) considered far and away superior films to Pixar's ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} 2'' (RT 39%) and both were nominated for the Best Animated Feature Oscar while the Pixar film was shut out. Furthermore, ''KFP 2'' out-grossed ''Cars 2'' in the box office worldwide. In short, Katzenberg's dream had come true.

In April 2016, [=DreamWorks=] Animation [[https://variety.com/2016/biz/news/dreamworks-animation-3-8-billion-nbcuniversal-comcast-1201762634/ finally succeeded]] in reaching an acquisition deal, this time with Comcast, the parent company of media conglomerate [[Creator/{{NBC}} NBC]][[Creator/{{Universal}} Universal]][[note]]In a case of HilariousInHindsight, [=NBCUniversal=] was a candidate to acquire the live-action [=DreamWorks=] studio when it was put up for sale in 2005, but was outbid by Paramount/Viacom[[/note]]. Under Comcast's acquisition plan that is worth '''$3.8 billion'''[[note]]A scale not seen in the mass media since Disney's purchase of Creator/MarvelComics and Lucasfilm, which were both bought for $4 billion[[/note]], Katzenberg retired as CEO of DWA and became chairman of the new DWA division [=DreamWorks=] New Media, who oversees the studio's controlling interests in [=AwesomenessTV=] and the NOVA joint venture.

What this deal will mean for The [=DreamWorks=] Channel remains to be seen, but given [=NBCUniversal=]'s screwing of Hallmark Channel Asia and [=KidsCo=] prior, and their attitude towards the Asian market for WesternAnimation in general, fingers will be crossed and fans will be watching closely on how this situation plays out.
