Turbo from DreamWorks

Win at all costs! The company DreamWorks has not made an exception on making a life-affirming, bright, touching cartoon about a dream, which seems so unachievable and impossible, but comes to life because the one who dreamt this dream refused to give up and surrender. So, here is the new creation DreamWorks, a brilliant and beautiful cartoon Turbo.

The story of Turbo is the life story of a small yet astonishing snail, which looked pretty ordinary at the first glance, but kept an immense dream in his heart. His name is Theo, and Turbo is his nickname, a sonorous alias which was based on his reckless dream to become fast. It must sound ridiculous, and even more than this. A fast snail, a joke of nature, a fruit of some craze fantasy.  From our early childhood we know that snails are ones of the slowest creatures in the Earth. But Turbo could not care less about the prejudices he was surrounded by, because he dreamed of racing, he dreamed of becoming a winner and indeed, he managed to make his dream come true. Of course, a miracle took place, and even as the Turbo trailer demonstrates, Turbo nearly died under the wheels of a racing car to acquire some supernatural powers of unimaginable speed. Despite the difficulties, he overcame his fears and doubts, defeated every trouble with a little help from his loyal friends, he made it to the race and he owned the race.

If you want something ardently, if you give your heart and soul to that, if your dedication is as profound as you desire, your dream is destined to come true.

So Turbo is a cartoon not about races, snails, or something just as concrete. Turbo’s dream of being fast is a metaphor for every single dreamer out there, who has some doubts about his dream, who is afraid or not dedicated enough to achieve it. Turbo is a story of unimaginable success, unconditional friendship, pure faith, incredible dedication and, of course, the strength of character. It does not matter, how many times you fail, how many times you become a laughing stock, how many times it seems that you have lost it all. As long as you have faith in your powers, a few faithful friends, who are there for you whatever happens and a dream, which keeps you breathing, you have every chance to success. Turbo took a reckless shot. He was carrying inside of his snaily soul a dream so big it made him strong enough to make to the finish of the race. And his example teaches us to never give up, because our dream should give us strength to achieve the greatest things.

A poster for the new animated flick, Megamind, starring the voices of Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Tina Fey, and Will Ferrell. From Madagascar director Tom McGrath, the movie is a satirical take on superheroes with Pitt as Metro Man, a goodiegoodie superhero and Farrell as the villain and title character, Megamind.


The Dreamworks Animated movie comes out in November. If you are going to the San Diego Comic Con International, the movie will be having a panel on Thursday July 22nd at 10am. On hand from the film will be Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, and Jonah Hill and Tom McGrath. They will be having a question and answer session along with showcasing all new footage from the film.

The film sounds like it can be a lot of fun. Originally, Robert Downey Jr was slated to appear as the Megamind (originally named “Master Mind”), but had to pull out due to scheduling conflicts. I would have preferred him to Will Ferrell who doesn’t show nearly as much range as Downey. Brad Pitt is a nice addition as the steriotypical superhero. Jonah Hill is always a great addition also.

Are you looking forward to Megamind? Will it be a new Incredibles or will it be as awful as Monsters vs Aliens?

Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks TV have struck a deal to bring Stephen King’s Under the Dome to life. The book, which was recently released, is going to be made as an event mini series and likely set up on a cable network.

The novel is a supernatural thriller that focuses on a small New England town that is cut off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field, which causes ecological effects and a fight for control within the isolated population. What is the mystery of the dome?

While I have not read Under the Dome, it seems like it is a perfect fit for Spielberg and company to adapt for the small screen. The source material contains a strong and engaging premise with a ton of possibilities. The great thing about doing it as a mini series is that it has a clear beginning and end, instead of being an ongoing series that would likely be stretched thin and lose focus. If done in a style similar to Taken, I think this could be a very cool project.

Dreamworks Animation have released an all new trailer for Monsters vs Aliens, an upcoming 3D animated flick from Rob Letterman (Shark Tale) and Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2).

After aliens invade America (“the only country that UFOs ever seem to land in”, heh), the President is forced to enlist monsters that the military has secretly been rounding up to save the planet. Included in the mix of monsters are a 49 foot 11 inch tall woman, “the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link; the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B.; and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus”.
