Bad People has marked yet another successful release from DreamWorks which seems to be working hard when it comes to producing animated films and TV shows that actually deliver for audiences. Their slate over the next few years featured many interesting projects that are still under wraps.
While some of the upcoming releases have confirmed dates and are based on pre-existing properties, others are completely original ideas or perhaps, at the very least, children’s book-inspired adaptations. No matter the source of their story, these concepts are definitely worth looking out for, among DreamWorks’ huge release schedule.
Puss In Boots: The Last Hope (2022)
That Cat in shoes The franchise has had a life of its own since the characters first appeared in Shrek story. With his own spin-off film and a series of shows on Netflix, the heroic cat will be wearing the famous shoe once again on the big screen in Puss In Boots: The Last Hope.

Boss Baby: Back In Bed (2022)
Boss Baby is probably one of DreamWorks’ most underrated animation features despite its success. Although another sequel seems to be in the works after that Family Affairs, Back In The Crib is a bit of a change of pace for the franchise, considering it’s a TV show.
