DreamWorks Animation (often referred only as DreamWorks and formerly DreamWorks Animation SKG) is an American animation studio company based on Glendale, California. It was formerly a division of DreamWorks Pictures before it became an independent company in 2004 and since 2016, it is a subsidiary of NBCUniversal (Comcast) through its Film & Entertainment unit.
Although DreamWorks Animation was an independent studio from 2004 until 2016, it didn't always release its titles on its own. It once had a distribution deal with Paramount Pictures (2006–2012), as a result of Viacom's acquisition of the original DreamWorks, and then 20th Century Fox (2013–2017). As a result of the studio's acquisition by Comcast, Universal Pictures (since 2018) holds the distribution rights to all DWA titles.
