Another Disney Pixar sequel is in the works, according to reports.

Disney Pixar has established itself as one of the leading animation studios in the world because of its blockbuster films that have become icons for Disney fans everywhere, including Toy Story (1995), Monsters Inc. (2001), Cars (2006), Ratatouille (2007), Up (2009), The Incredibles (2004), Finding Nemo (2003),  A Bug’s Life (1998), WALL-E (2008), and many more.

Pixar Studios just recently released Lightyear (2022), which was a prequel to tell the story of the real-life man who inspired the toy Buzz Lightyear. The movie was not well-received at the box office and it has led many publications to indicate that Pixar might be bound to releases on Disney+,  which is what we saw with Turning Red (2022), Luca (2021), Soul(2020), and Onward (2020).

However, there is hope that a popular sequel could potentially bring the studio back to the top of the box office.

“The second installment will be more about Riley in her teenage years. Riley is now 15 and plunged into the hormonal hell of puberty. Adolescence is known as the time your emotions go haywire and so expect pure havoc, drama, moments of betrayal, and every bit of hormonal change that a teenage kid goes through in the sequel. Strap yourselves for a roller coaster ride of a lifetime!”
