Comcast NBC Universal To Purchase DreamWorks Animation For $3.8 Billion


With a title like that, does anything else need to be said?….

In another power move, the newly minted Comcast NBCUniversal purchases DreamWorks Animation Studios for $3.8 billion, per The Hollywood Reporter. DreamWorks Animation studios has created some gems, including Despicable Me and Minions, will now join with the Comcast NBCUniversal entity to attempt to rival Disney in the children’s content market.

It will be interesting to see what else DreamWorks has in the works as a little under $4 billion is definitely a steep price unless a few more Minions are in the pipeline.
