On Hold

In January 2015, DreamWorks Animation announced the closing of their Redwood City, California studio, and the laying off of over 500 artists. As a result, B.O.O: Bureau of Otherwordly Operations has been dropped entirely from the production slate for the studio, and pushed back into an “in development” status.[1]
