Animated anthropomorphic features in 2013
The Cartoon Brew has a preview list of animated features due out in 2013; at least those announced so far – some with trailers.
Those with prominent anthropomorphized animals or “things” include Escape from Planet Earth (aliens) in February, Epic (mice, slugs) in May, Monsters University (monsters) in June, Despicable Me 2 (those yellow minions), Turbo (snails), and The Smurfs 2 (Smurfs, Naughties) in July, Planes (airplanes) in August, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2: Revenge of the Leftovers (monkeys, food-animal hybrids) in September, and Mr. Peabody and Sherman (dog) in November. Foreign films already out abroad and coming to America in 2013 include Ernest & Celestine (mice, bears).
Hmmm, did Delhi Safari (monkeys, bears, leopards, bees, etc) and Marco Macaco (monkeys) get American releases during 2012?

Delhi Safari had some sort of release in the US last year (probably just a week long one theater run to qualify for the Oscars rather than a really real release). Marco Macaco either didn't release, didn't submit to the Oscars, or probably neither.
There'll also be Dorothy of Oz with the odd anthropomorphic side-character. Not to be confused with the Disney/Sam Raimi production Oz the Great and Powerful. Both of them will include the flying monkeys.
Dorothy of Oz was on this list last year, so I'm not holding my breath ... for it to be any good, anyway. Surely it'll arrive eventually.
The Great and Powerful Oz looks like Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland except that I actually care about Oz, so you're raping my childhood, Sam Raimi!
DreamWorks and 20th Century Fox have moved the release of 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' forward to March 7, 2014.
Here is the first "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" trailer.
