Major layoffs are coming up at DreamWorks Animation. Details aren’t known yet, but the number of people who will be given the slip could possibly exceed the 350 employees were were dismissed in 2013, according to a report in today’s LA Times.
The layoffs will affect every part of the company’s 2,000-plus employees from animators to production artists and non-creative personnel. The studio refused to comment on the layoffs saying it “does not comment on rumor and speculation.”
However, the Wall Street Journal contends that the layoffs are not a rumor since they began happening last week. At this point, it’s not a matter of if, but of how many people will be let go.
