If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again. That appears to be the DreamWorks motto for its property Turbo. After the film’s lackluster theatrical run (Antz and Flushed Away are the only DWA CGI feaures to gross less worldwide), Turbo will return next month as a TV series. Turbo: F.A.S.T. is part of DreamWorks’ massive content deal with Netflix and will be streamed exclusively online.
The series is produced by Titmouse Animation Studio, which also produced the recent car/racing-themed Disney XD series Motorcity. The translation from CG-to-Flash looks well done; perhaps drawings of racing snails will tickle the fancy of the viewing public in a way that fast CGI snails could not.
