DWA wants to move it some more


DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg expects at least one additional "Madagascar" sequel, the executive said Wednesday during a preview of the upcoming "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" at Siggraph.

The animation studio also has begun talks aimed at creating a sequel to its summer hit "Kung Fu Panda."

Katzenberg and "Escape 2 Africa" directors Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath introduced about 30 minutes of the computer-animated sequel to 2005's "Madagascar," which continues the story of a group of Central Park Zoo animals trying to make their way back to the Big Apple. The movie opens Nov. 7.

Calling it the "second chapter in one story," Katzenberg said "there is at least one more chapter. We ultimately want to see the characters make it back to New York."

DWA previously said that all features after "Escape 2 Africa" would be made for stereoscopic 3-D release.
