Comcast Corp. completed its acquisition of the DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. animation studio on Monday for $3.8 billion, regulatory filings show. Comcast bid on the troubled movie studio earlier in the year, closing the deal with a $41 a share offer. DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg will no longer head the company but will be retained as a consultant to Comcast.
