From the makers of Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon, comes an extraordinary exhibition celebrating over 20 years of DreamWorks Animation!

DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition features over 350 items including rare and never-before-seen concept drawings, models and original artworks, interviews and interactive displays from DreamWorks much-loved and favourite animated classics.

Take a fascinating and exciting journey from original sketches of grumpy ogres and friendly dragons, to the amazing stories and worlds brought to the screen by DreamWorks’ award-winning artists.

The exhibition is divided into three parts: Character, Story and World. Each section features interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, original concept art and maquettes. Together they chart the DreamWorks Animation creative journey from an original kernel of an idea through a fully realised animated film.

The exhibition is developed by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) and DreamWorks Animation.
