in Disney, Entertainment, Movies

Today at the Walt Disney Company’s annual shareholders meeting, Disney CEO Bob Iger ran through their upcoming slate of movies for the next few years. After barreling through live-action films, Iger turned to Pixar making some surprising announcements.

New sequels to “Cars” and “The Incredibles” are in the works at Pixar. No further details were given, other than to say director Brad Bird is back for “The Incredibles 2” and “Cars 3” is also in development.

Pixar’s other upcoming films include “Inside Out,” “The Good Dinosaur,” and “Finding Dory.

In addition, Iger noted that “Star Wars: Episode 7” will take place 30 years after “Return of the Jedi” with “very familiar faces returning, joining a “trio of new leads.”

    Funny how Disney/Pixar announces their most desired sequel and least desired sequel at the same time.

    At the same time, I really hope Pixar stops with the sequels. I’ve adamantly defended that Pixar has not given in to “sequelitis,” but between Finding Dory and this new announcement, I’m starting to rethink my position.

      Why should they stop with the sequels? I mean, as long as they don’t let the sequel count overtake the original, and keep them good, I don’t see the problem with further exploration of the universes of the films they’ve already made.

    I’m kind of hoping Cars 3 will be an effective apology for Cars 2. And Planes.

        Planes was Disney without the benefit of Disney. It was farmed out to India and was originally just for DVD.

    Why Cars 3? I thought Pixar would never do that since Cars 2 didn’t really do well successfully.

      I don’t believe it would matter how well Cars 2 did in the theaters, it’s the millions in merchandise they are looking to make.

    The Incredibles 2!…awaiting this for a long time! I hope Cars 3 will be much more fascinating than the previous one. And Disney must try to remain innovative as they’ve always been.
