Is DreamWorks Animation a part of Disney? Why?

Dreamworks Animation is not a part of Disney.

During the 90’s a great person known as Jeffrey Katzenberg was a big part of the Disney Renaissance where him and the people at Disney made hit after hit after hit with movies like The Little Mermaid, The Rescurers Down Under, and The Lion King but body really gotten along with Katzenberg while he was at the studio so right after the release of The Lion King he resigned.

So what does this have to do with Dreamworks Animation. Jeffrey Katzenberg made Dreamworks Animation with Steven Spielberg and David Geffen.

And Dreamworks Animation use to be the big competitors of Disney Animation in the 2000’s but all good things have to come to an end so Illumination decided to be so overrated as a studio in general that they make a lot of money at the box office being Disney’s new competitor.

DreamWorks Animation Movies ranked from worst to best
