Pop Culture Timelines Go-To Thread

While we're on this topic, do you think if WB did an animated feature during the fifties, would it utilize the same comedic formula of their shorts, or would it try to copy what Disney was doing at the time?
They could go either way, as this is pre DC adquisition, i think they would go all the deluxe style with their Looney Tunes or doing original story and adaptation.

With Disney adapting mostly European fairy tales. I could see Warner adapting a lot of American folklore i.e. Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, etc.

Yeah, but Disney had already done a Johnny Appleseed adaptation at this point with the Johnny Appleseed segment in Melody Time.
 
For those people interested, we have a new ATL called "Masks Begat Masks", where superheroes and supervillains are real, complete with costumes, but the laws of physics remain in place, so no super powers:

 
Now, here's one I came up with recently that's set in more recent times.

Imagine if, after Jeffrey Katzenberg stepped down as the CEO of Dreamworks in 2016, they tried again at a hand-drawn film after two decades. (Similar to when Disney tried again at hand-drawn animation after Michael Eisner stepped down.) I have an idea for what this film's crew would consist of, and the previous films it would take influence from.

The film would be directed by Simon Wells and Gary Trousdale. The animation staff would consist of Duncan Marjoribanks, Kristof Serrand, Nicolas Marlet, William Salazar, Lorna Cook...pretty much any Dreamworks animator who previously worked at Disney or Amblimation. The soundtrack would be provided by Hans Zimmer, with songs written by Stephen Schwartz.

The film wouldn't completely follow the modern Dreamworks formula, but would take influence from the Disney Renaissance, Don Bluth, and maybe even a bit of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It would be released in either 2019 or 2020.

I still haven't completely figured out what this film would be about, but I imagine it starring talking animal characters. If anyone has any suggestions for this ATL modern 2D Dreamworks film, that would be great.
