awards_academynom_annieupdateWe are so excited for, and proud of, our friends at Dreamworks Animation for the amazing success of HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. Over $618 million in worldwide boxoffice and it continues to gain much deserved critical acclaim with multiple nominations and several awards under it’s high-flying belt: The Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film and 6 Annie Awards, including Best Animated Feature Film and Best Director for Dean DeBlois. It has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. Fingers crossed for a win next Sunday, February 22! It would be a great nod to the film, the franchise (cause really, no offense to Toy Story 3, but How To Train Your Dragon should have taken the 2010 Oscar) and to the studio that has broken so much ground with their edgy and inspiring filmmaking and animation.

Check out the fun Dragons site http://dreamworksdragons.com for a deep dive into this spectacular world, which highlights not only the amazing movies, but also the TV show, the games, the products and all the characters. It’s all the dragons you’ll ever need in one place. This TVGla and Dreamworks franchise site was a 2014 W³ Awards Best in Show Winner!

We’ve shut down our TEXT messaging, but thanks to all who texted to get Poison Apple updates and the special transmedia Text pre-story to the show. Here’s another fascinating article by Steve Julian on Poison Apple writer Sean Galuszka. Next up: Deciding if 2012 will have us going to the New York Fringe Festival or the Edinburgh Fringe Festival… or BOTH!?!
