sometimes i think about the fact that
Dreamworks was working on the Prince of
Egypt and Shrek at the same time and would
apparently send people to work on Shrek
instead of the Prince of Egypt as a form of
punishment
the night i posted this i couldn't find a
source and i've been wondering ever since
if maybe it was just some kind of fucked up
fever dream or something. but no, it's real:
As Shrek floundered, its status as
the ugly stepchild at DreamWorks
was
reinforced.
"It was
known as
the Gulag," said one animator. "If you failed on
Prince of Egypt... you were sent to the dungeons to work on
Shrek."
The assignment was
referred to as
being "Shreked"

    • Prince of Egypt is one of the finest animated epics ever made. It's not a competition between the two as they are both masterpieces in their own way but while shrek is more approachable to a wider audience and more rewatchable it is clear that prince of Egypt is higher quality animated film.
