Arrow DreamWorks Animation unveils China studio plans

Once they get this new Chinese operation up and running, I have to wonder how long it will be before they start laying off employees in their present Glendale, California facility.

It doesn't sound like that facility is being built to replace the Glendale facillity. It sounds like it is being built to supplement it; specifically, to create movies for Chinese audiences, not Western ones.

I did read the article. The question remains. They say it is just for the Chinese market, but once they have a staff of skilled animators that can pump out productions at a much lower price, it obviously becomes more difficult to justify keeping all production for the American market in Glendale.
