Dreamworks IS making a movie about rats? Get some of your own ideas already!
As I pointed out in another thread, this is an Aardman Animation
film, partly funded by Dreamworks and Distributed by Dreamworks. If it is like Chicken Run, it will only be distributed by Dreamworks in America. Aardman have been working on the film off and on for about a decade (mainly just story/script ideas until financing was acquired).
Aardman are also making a Wallace and Gromit film co-financed by Dreamworks. I suppose you will say Dreamworks are copying Disney and their Wilbur Robinson film (both films deal with unconventional inventions) despite Wallace and Gromit being created in the 1991.
So perhaps this time, its Pixar and/or Disney who should get their own ideas!
