Wishing for Dragons

When Pixar came out with the film "Toy Story," at first I was disappointed. Sure, talking toys were cute, but if someone had handed me a computer animation studio, I would have made something with dragons.

As time went on I came to love "Toy Story," along with the rest of Pixar's unusual fantasy films. Cars that talk? A rat that wants to be a chef? A fish whose son gets kidnapped by a dentist? The ideas sound like they will never work, but time and time again, they pulled it off---with great storytelling.

But now Pixar's rival animation studio Dreamworks has finally made the film I've been waiting fifteen years to see:

Looking forward to reviewing it on March 26th.

"Something crazy."

How can you not love that? My kids are going to dig this film.
