Dreamworks Broadens Horizons of Animation with Home

Home actually has — brace yourselves — a black female in the lead. This is a beautifully risky endeavor for a genre that devotes itself almost entirely (give or take an hispanic tie-in here or there) to white folk. Rihanna voices the lead, Jim Parsons plays the sidekick. Hat tip to First Showing.

Jennifer Lawrence has to be one of the biggest stars in the world right now. $158 million for the opening of Catching Fire. You can say it’s the franchise if you want. At the end of the day, does it really matter? Isn’t that just another way of saying it doesn’t count? Ditto for Sandra Bullock and the $245 million for Gravity.
