DreamWorks’ ‘Marooned’ to Debut with ‘Abominable’ in Select LA and NY Theatres

Andrew Erekson’s CG-animated short, the latest release from the studio’s Shorts Program, takes a stylized look at the not too distant future. 

DreamWorks Animation’s latest short film, Marooned, the third release from the studio’s Shorts Program, will make its theatrical debut attached to the animated feature Abominable in select Los Angeles and New York AMC theatres this weekend. 

Adrew Erekson’s CG-animated short, which premiered this June at the Annecy International Film Festival and is currently in the midst of its global festival run, takes a stylized look at the not too distant future. Marooned tells the story of a cantankerous and selfish robot named C-0R13. Stranded on an abandoned lunar outpost, C-0R13 longs to return to Earth. With a partially built ship and his last power source, this determined robot will stop at nothing to achieve his goal. When C-0R13 accidentally stumbles on a deactivated robot named A-L1C1A, his character and his mission are put to the test when his naive little friend helps him learn what it truly means to be selfless.

The short is directed by Erekson and produced by Jeff Hermann, with music by Amie Doherty. Hermann, currently producing the studio’s Boss Baby sequel, The Boss Baby 2 alongside returning director Tom McGrath, also produced the first two films in the shorts program, Bird Karma and Bilby, as well as co-produced the animated comedy hit, Kung Fu Panda 3.  

Hitting theatres this Friday, Abominable, a co-production with Pearl Studio, is written and directed by Jill Culton (Open Season) and produced by Suzanne Buirgy with Todd Wilderman serving as co-director. The film takes audiences on an epic 2,000-mile adventure from the streets of China to the breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes. It follows the adventures of a teenager, Yi, and her friends as they embark on a quest to reunite a magical Yeti with his family.
