Guillermo del Toro will direct an animated feature

His first animated feature movie, to be exact, and that movie will be made by DreamWorks Animation. The studio's president confirm it today.
Chris deFaria, president of the DWA studios since January 2017, with a background in the same sector as Warner Bros., confirms that he has just signed a new and prolific contract to write, produce and direct films (yes, plural) with the well-known Mexican producer and director Guillermo Del Toro, fresh winner of two Academy Awards (The Shape of Water).

Del Toro is a long time collaborator of the studios, not only for the latest and award-winning Trollhunders series (which he created and produced) distributed by Netflix, series which will be followed by two others: 3Below (2018) and Wizards (2019). On the feature film side, he was executive producer of Rise of the Guardians, Puss in Boots and Kung Fu Panda 3, and as a creative consultant for Kung Fu Panda 2 and Megamind.

"We are thrilled that Guillermo is adding a film partnership to the already successful television relationship he has with DreamWorks Animation. He is truly a one-of-a-kind artist, and we are eager to see his imagination on full display in the family animated feature space," deFaria stated. "Guillermo has a unique talent for creating memorable worlds and characters, and we believe the films we create with him will resonate with animation audiences for many generations to come. I am personally very excited to extend the long working relationship I have enjoyed with Guillermo and look forward to him also collaborating with us on some of our breakthrough advancements in technology and innovation."

Del Toro added, "Animation is an art form that has influenced my work greatly since childhood. To me, its the perfect medium to bring to life any and all ideas, no matter how outlandish or wild. I am eager to work with Chris and the talented artists at DreamWorks some of the most talented people in the business to make these images a reality. I have worked with DreamWorks for about a decade and the horizon just keeps getting wider."

We just have to wait for the ideas that his mind will give birth and the DWA will bring in animations.
