* StrictlyFormula: They have been accused of enforcing this trope in most of their CGI-animated movies during the 2000s: in the beginning, the main character is an outcast (or at the very least is "different"). Throughout the film he becomes a better person. In the end, he saves the day and everyone accepts him for who he is. Add bonus points for pop culture references, fart jokes and the occasional DreamWorksFace, and you're good to go.

Katzenberg's successor as CEO, former Warner Bros. animation president Christopher [=DeFaria=], was appointed to the board five months after the completion, on January 10, 2017. Given his mixed track record at Warner with films ranging from ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' to ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'', it's safe to say that time will tell whether or not [=DreamWorks=] has a bright future ahead.

The studio's sole success in 2014 was the highly promising ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon2'', which surpassed the total grosses of their four previous films (as well as its prequel). Their follow-up ''WesternAnimation/PenguinsOfMadagascar'' once again underperformed (although it grossed more than ''Turbo'' and ''Mr. Peabody & Sherman''); these combined disappointments led [=DreamWorks=] [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/la-et-ct-dreamworks-layoffs-20150122-story.html to announce in early 2015]] that they would be laying off 500 employees and reevaluating their core animation business - this included a smaller film schedule as well as the shuttering of Pacific Data Images. Around this time, Katzenberg sought to find a better partner for the studio, having tried to negotiate with two companies in 2014 for a sale. The Japanese corporation [=SoftBank=] and later the toy company Creator/{{Hasbro}} were interested in taking control of the studio, but both companies pulled out of negotiations after Katzenberg demanded a higher-than-average asking price from both companies (Softbank invested in Creator/LegendaryPictures instead, and Hasbro pulled out because they also had made a deal with Disney, who were not all that fond of the idea in the first place). This made any prospect of a sale unlikely for the next two years.

Their sole release for 2015: ''WesternAnimation/{{Home}}'', resulted a moderate success at the box office (it made back its budget domestically, which the studio's previous flops failed to do) and well-received by the public, but has received the lowest critical score for a DWA film since 2007.

Incidentally, their decision to launch a western animation channel in Asia comes a year after {{NBC}}{{Universal}} [[ScrewedByTheNetwork pulled out of the Joint Venture]] that is [=KidsCo=] in Asia. NBCU claimed it was due to [[BlatantLies "growing challenges in the international children's television industry"]], but most pin the blame on the company's purchase of the U.S-based preschool network Creator/{{Sprout}} from Creator/{{PBS}}.
