High-Def Digest reports Dreamworks Animation isn’t going to give up on HD DVD just yet. That’s because a lucrative deal was signed between the studio and Toshiba to ensure that future films from Dreamworks Animation would be released exclusively on HD DVD. CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg spoke with Reuters on Tuesday and said,
“It really is in their court at this point to really declare what the next step will be,” explained Katzenberg. “We’re poised either way to jump into the marketplace when the conditions are right to do so.”
He is currently waiting for a response from Toshiba as to how to release “Bee Movie”, the only film currently slated to be released under this exclusive arrangement.
