First Look at DreamWorks Animation's Super Speedy Snail 'Turbo'

February 17, 2012

We've been getting our first look at a lot of DreamWorks Animation properties coming up over the next couple years with The Croods and Rise of the Guardians debuting a couple promo posters, and now we have one more. Previously we heard that Ryan Reynolds (who also has a role in The Croods) would lend his voice to Turbo, the story of an ordinary garden snail with an impossible dream: to become the fastest snail in the world. When a freak accident gives him extraordinary speed, Turbo sets out to make his dream come true. Now we have our first look at Turbo, and it sadly looks like a straight-to-DVD feature. See it below!

Here's our first look at DreamWorks Animation's Turbo via Bleeding Cool:

Turbo - Promo Poster

Turbo will be directed by David Soren (who directed the Merry Madagascar Christmas special) working from a script he co-wrote with Shrek Forever After scribe Darren Lemke. Ryan Reyolds will voice the titular character in the story of an ordinary garden snail with an impossible dream: to become the fastest snail in the world. When a freak accident gives him extraordinary speed, Turbo sets out to try to make this dream come true. We've been told by DreamWorks that the film hits theaters on June 7th, 2013 despite what the date on the above promotional poster says, but that could very well change so stay tuned.

Is this a joke?

The resolution looks off, but maybe that's supposed to be a blur effect of some sort.

Seriously. Are all three posters Dreamworks unveiled recently for straight-to-DVD features?

Mithun Divakaran on Feb 17, 2012


Agreed.  Dreamworks has done great stuff, but the last three designs have made me cringe.

This is not released by Dreamworks! It's not real! Check your facts!

This was announced by Dreamworks as being on their lineup about a year ago. Unfortunately, it is very real. Facts have indeed been checked, my friend. Check yours before you go saying things like "check your facts!".

This cant be real! This is the company that brought us How To Train Your Dragon, Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and Puss in Boots...

Looks like some crappy SNES game from 1992. Don't expect an animation Oscar for this one.

 it seen to be a cheap copy of Cars but compare the successful Cars with this stupid film, it is an insult for Pixar.

You know, a lot of people worked hard on this movie. How do you think it feels back to look at these unkind words now.
