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.

This logo first debuted with and was used on the trailers for Antz (1998) and The Prince of Egypt (1998). DreamWorks Animation did not use an on-screen logo until 2004; prior to that year, the DreamWorks Pictures logo was used in its place.

While the 2007 print logo was no longer used in future film promotional materials, it can still be seen in reprints of old films from the pre-Universal era.


DreamWorks 2015

In 2014, DreamWorks debuted a new alternate logo used only on their website as part of the studio's then-20th anniversary brand campaign among other purposes. The moon boy inside the D may be a nod the 1997 DreamWorks Pictures logo.

DreamWorks Animation (second era)[]


DreamWorks Animation 2016

Until 2018, the name "SKG" was removed, after it was acquired by Comcast's NBCUniversal and the release of Bilby (2018).
