Obama To Visit DreamWorks Studio In Glendale Next Week

GLENDALE (AP) — President Obama will visit the home of “Shrek” next week to deliver remarks on the economy.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says the president will stop next Tuesday at DreamWorks Animation in Glendale. Earnest won’t provide details but he says the U.S. movie and TV industry is creating thousands of jobs around the country.

The studio’s animated hits include “Shrek,” ”Madagascar,” ”Kung Fu Panda” and their sequels.

DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg is a big supporter of Obama and Democratic Party causes. Last year he gave $2 million to the group supporting Obama’s re-election. During an August trip to California, the president and Katzenberg dined in Obama’s Los Angeles hotel room.
