    Just read the story. What a sad day for them but they put it into perspective with world events and are not overplaying it

    Hi,

    That's really awful to hear! To see all your work go up in flames, must be absolutely heart-wrenching! :(

    I know it's only a tiny issue, in comparison to other world events, but this was a company that brought joy to millions of people all over the world, both young and old! Such a shame that this has to happen, just after their new film has been released. :(

    I do hope Dreamworks will help them financially, to try and recreate some of the characters.

    If Morph has been burnt to a smudge, won't he just pop back into shape again? ;)

    He would have escaped by turning into a cylinder and disappearing into the floor.

    Nice to see Mr Park keping in perspective

    Well their other studio opposite my place of work is still standing so I'm sure they didn't lose everything.
