"Samsung and DreamWorks Animation bring together the best creative talent in animation and the strongest 3D TV technology in order to offer a new dimension of home entertainment. We believe that 3D TV adoption at home will increase as more global 3D hits, such as ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ are made available to the consumer for 3D home viewing,” said John Revie, senior vice president of Home Entertainment, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. “We look forward to a continued collaboration with DreamWorks Animation to deliver such rich content to the living room.”
“We are pleased once again to extend our ongoing alliance with Samsung – whose commitment to providing the highest quality out-of-the-box 3D experience at home is unparalleled in the consumer electronics industry – so that DreamWorks Animation fans will soon be able to enjoy a premium version of How To Train Your Dragon in 3D Blu-ray,” added John Batter, Co-President of Production at DreamWorks Animation.
How To Train Your Dragon has surpassed $480 million at the worldwide box office to date and is among the top ten movies of 2010, on both a domestic and a worldwide basis. The 3D Blu-ray version will be made available for Samsung 3D TV owners to enjoy at home this fall. It joins Monsters vs. Aliens as the second DreamWorks Animation 3D BD title available exclusively to Samsung 3D TV owners and later in the fourth quarter, Samsung will also make available an exclusive offering of DreamWorks Animation’s beloved Shrek film series – all four titles in 3D Blu-ray for the first time ever.
