According to most producers and directors, it takes 3-5 years to come up with a well-furnished animated film.
The first step in the making process of an animated movie is writing a script. Concept is the key factor in this step. In the script, writers, producers and directors mix their original ideas with ideas inspired by a wide range of sources that include comic strips and children’s book.

Storyboard artistes imagine how the words in the script would translate into pictures and actions by making a series of sketches in the form of a comic book with an aim of not only telling the story but also bringing the story to life. The drawings are then digitally photographed and strung together to create a story reel (a flipbook that allows you to see how drawings flow together) upon the approval of the producers and directors of Madagascar concerning the series of sketches. The story reel is then combined with temporary sound, music and dialogue and the producers and directors work with this combination for about eighteen months.
