DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.
The team either did amazing research on play areas at fast food places or have incredible, vivid memories of what they were like because this really took me back. I mean it is spot on. Not to overshadow the fact that this is looking to be a good show, but I’m just so amazed at how accurate the portrayal of this was, hahaha.
