On December 11, 2015, ''Variety'' magazine reported that, after several months of negotiations, [=DreamWorks=] had reconciled with Universal Studios and reached a distribution deal, reuniting Spielberg with his longtime film partner. Coinciding with the confirmation of the agreement five days later, on December 16, it was announced that [=DreamWorks=] and Amblin Entertainment had been reorganized under the new film production company, '''Amblin Partners''', as part of an investment deal that involved film financing firms Participant Media and Entertainment One. With this reorganization, [=DreamWorks=] was relegated to a label focused on adult-themed films, while Amblin was relegated to a label for family movies, ultimately bringing [=DreamWorks=] and [=Amblin=] under one roof. (The use of the Amblin name was required by [=DreamWorks=] Animation, who ended up owning the DW trademark and claims exclusive rights to use it on family films). Disney would acquire the rights to all twelve films under their expiring deal with [=DreamWorks=] as part of the severance agreement. ''The Light Between Oceans'' was the last film released under the Disney deal, and as a final insult to [=DreamWorks=], [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Disney released it before a Labor Day weekend to ensure its failure]].

Universal began its deal with [=DreamWorks=] with ''Film/TheGirlOnTheTrain'', which despite mixed reviews was a surprising SleeperHit[[note]]By contrast, DW's first film with Disney, ''I Am Number Four'', was a critical dud and a box office disappointment[[/note]], and followed it up with ''Film/ADogsPurpose'', which was moderately successful despite similarly mixed reviews (plus a behind-the-scenes controversy that harmed its marketing campaign). The modest success of these films convinced Universal to become a minority stakeholder of Amblin Partners, giving Universal partial ownership of both [=DreamWorks=] and Amblin. This had the effect of fully bringing the [=DreamWorks=] banner under one roof once again, as Universal's parent company [=NBCUniversal=] had purchased [=DreamWorks=] Animation in August 2016. With [=DreamWorks=] now receiving financial backing from a major film studio for the first time in nearly a decade whilst remaining creatively independent (something that wasn't the case during its years with Paramount), and reunited with its former animation division, the studio is seeing bright days ahead of them.
