Dinotrux First Season Commissioned

The studio behind Shrek has a project of prehistoric proportions in store for the (Jurassic) world at large!
DreamWorks Animation have today announced the development of a new animated TV series as part of their official WonderCon 2015 panel.

Currently intended to première on Netflix sometime in the not too distant future, the show - tentatively titled Dinotrux - will (at least if its present title is any indication) presumably combine creatures from before the dawn of time with considerably more modern metallic auto-mobiles in an effort to blend genres in a similar vein to the studio's previous big-screen projects such as Monsters vs. Aliens and Kung Fu Panda.

All the same, those fans of DreamWorks' past work may well need to reconsider their loyalties if they're hoping for textual callbacks galore, since the studio appeared adamant that this was to be an "original project" as opposed to a shared universe-esque entry along the lines of Agent Carter or the recently-rumoured Men in Black / 21 Jump Street crossover. In place of such diligent adherence to continuity, however, the production team will - according to those members in attendance at WonderCon - at least aim to include "action, adventure, comedy [and] drama", though in light of the frequency with which executive producers use such terms in relation to up-and-coming projects, the proof will inevitably have to be in the metaphorical pudding in this instance.

Dinotrux's opening run will awaken from its meteor-induced slumber just in time to début on Netflix later this year.
