    If DW make more shows based on their lesser known movies, I would really like an El Dorado series. Bee Movie and Over the Hedge series would be great as well!

    This means I will have to get Netflix then!

    Can someone please explain the last sentence to me? :sweat: Do they mean it won't be aired on television in those countries or do they mean it won't be on Netflix in Southern Europe and Asia?

    This is a really awesome surprise. I loved Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and seeing it a Netflix series sounds really neat. It will give some more attention to one of their lesser known movies. I probably should get Netflix one of these days to watch the series, along with the new Voltron series and anything else that is exclusive to Netflix.

    I think I'm more anxious Hilda than all the rest (Save Skylanders) but maybe this will turn out good to.

    Well that was really unexpected. Although I liked the movie, I don't think it's enough to get me to subscribe to Netflix again.

    Interesting. I haven't watched Spirit all the way through. I'll definitely check it out when it releases. I will say, though, Netflix has ben doing pretty well on acquiring and producing content for children recently. I hope some of their endeavors produce success for them.

    I'm kind of curious how they'll be able to make a TV series based on the movie. The ending doesn't really open itself up to a lot of continuation. Granted, that never stopped them with TV series based on movies before, but I wonder how they'll handle it here.

    This is probably the only one of Dreamworks' 2D movies that I never got around to seeing. Very interesting development though. This might get me to finally sit and watch the movie. I'll be looking forward to seeing how this series develops.

    The Road to El Dorado was planned to be a movie series. Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas has a lot of potential.
    But NOOOO....they went with the boring (yet beautiful) Oscar bait film for a series. That's so unbelievably random!
    Ah well, it might be good. Hopefully other DW series from their 2D era will get a series too.

    DreamWorks gave Spirit a G rating, which they hadn't done for a traditionally-animated film before; of course, there's also Joseph, but that's another story.

    Huh! I know Dreamworks made it a priority to make animated spinoffs based off their successful films and franchises, but I didn't expect to see them dig back into their catalogue of older movies to develop a new series :sweat:.

    Though I remember watching Spirit as a kid, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more from this series and what it'll look like :).

    Now where's my Megamind, Guardians, and Sinbad cartoon Dreamworks :p?

    I think I remember reading somewhere that they had more plans for The Road to El Dorado, which would probably why the ending kind of felt like it was open enough for a continuation. I've never seen Sinbad though. I really like Spirit, but I don't know if I'd choose it for a TV series. Between the two movies that I've seen, a TV series for The Road to El Dorado would make much more sense and would possibly lend itself better as a TV series too. I don't mind that they're giving attention to Spirit instead since I really liked it, but I do agree it's kind of random and I'm really not sure where they'll go with as a series. It would be nice if this lead to Dreamworks giving other movies from their 2D era a series.

    When I watched the movie in theaters, I remember wondering how the heck this movie got a G rating. It's not violent from what I remember, but the villains did use guns and the whole scene with the train tracks was pretty intense. If it was put in theaters today, it would definitely get a PG rating, so I don't know how it got away with a G rating in 2002.

    Especially considering that Ice Age, Lilo and Stitch, and The Wild Thornberrys Movie all earned PG ratings that year.

    I actually love this film, I would put it on my top 5 DreamWorks films, ignoring sequels, but I don't see how it can work as a TV show, and it's random, since I think this film did poorly back in 2002.

    Yeah, the MPAA doesn't really make any sense, they also gave Cars 2 a G rating even though they had guns, torture scenes, and on screen deaths, yet films like Frozen has zero objectionable content and is rated PG.

    I wonder if it will come out in May next year, Spirit's 15th anniversary.

    Bit of an odd one. I thought we'd see an "Antz" series (called "Bugz") before this.

    I remember being so annoyed by this movie as a kid because it wasn't Shrek 2 it was also boring as heck.

    I remember finding Shrek extremely unfunny and boring as a kid, while loving Spirit because it was so thrilling :D

    It's surprising and cool that they are making a show based on one of their obscure films.

    Is the movie popular on streaming? That might be why. Or simply, they have a great idea worth exploring. Haha!
