Lassie the wonder dog is latest film legend to be revived by Hollywood. Hollywood may appear to be devoted to action movies. But for cinema-goers of a gentler Character, it plans to revivify a more serious superhero.
DreamWorks Animation, the creator of the Shrek and Kung Fu Panda franchises, has said that it plans to bring back Lassie. “She’s heroic, she’s loyal, she really is man’s best friend,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg, the company’s chief executive. “She’s the single most recognized pet in the world.”
