A Cars sequel in 2012? Here's hoping the Mayans got it right with that calendar thing.

I read Cars 2 and wasn't excited. However, if they throw in Europe and some more F1 references then I think I'd be good with that. Plus they could do a joke with driving through Paris and have Remmy step out and say you're too lound or something like that.

The Pixar stuff intrigues me, the Disney Animation stuff...not so much.

Newt sounds interesting, though the choice of director has me worried. Rydstrom did a good job with lifted but it was a short film that played primarily around sound rather than anything else. I'm not sure what a feature length film would be like.

I would too. But, Cars is John Lasseter's baby. That and Cars is the second most successful Pixar movie after Nemo for Disney. I'm sure add those together, Cars gets bumped to the head of the line.

It's worth noting that the people who run Pixar are now the same people who run everything else Disney animated. So, I would expect the quality to improve immensely. We haven't actually seen the results of that changeover yet though, so it's hard to really judge.

I don't get the hate for Cars. It was enjoyable enough, and there's plenty of room for a sequel.

While your box office numbers are correct, it doesn't paint a full picture. Cars was and is a merchandising monster, and has driven tons of revenue far beyond any theatrical receipts. That's what puts it in the position I said, and I'm sure they want to keep that gravy train rolling. Pehraps I should say Pixar property, not movie per se.

I don't like him either, but he didn't ruin the movie for me. I enjoyed Cars, moreso in repeat viewings. My son loves it. He likes all the Pixar movies, but Cars is easily the most watched. I'd be worried if the sequel were being rushed, but it seems they are taking time.

Well, maybe they just thought Cars would be better suited for a sequel than the others. I hope Paul Newman can come back for at least a cameo if nothing else.

Ratatouille ended so damn well that I just don't see how they can make a sequel.

Rat doesn't need a sequel. But certainly one could make an easy argument for an Incredibles sequel.

But perhaps Brad Bird just doesn't want to retread that territory. I'm sure Lasseter likes his property though, and well, I doubt he has much trouble greenlighting whatever he wants. Especially when it's a sequel to a film that made craptons of money (granted, that describes every Pixar movie...but this one in particular).

Cars is my favorite Pixar film. My five-year-old loves it and watches parts of it 3 or 4 times a week. It never grows old. Some of the other Pixar stuff makes me cringe after the third or fourth showing.

I would gladly give up all future Pixar offerings for a Cars sequel in '09 (or '10).

I would hope the quality would improve but 4 freaking Tinkerbell movies doesn't leave me feeling too optimistic.

I hate Larry The Cable Guy, but I honestly didn't realize it was him in the movie until later. I mean it's not like those were his jokes or anything, and I don't think I heard "Get 'er Done" once in that movie (although I could be wrong). As long as he just provides the voice and does none of the writing, I could care less. The character was funny, and the main reason I didn't realize it was him until much later was that Mater's voice seemed much less annoying than the usual Larry voice I hear every once in a while on TV Commercials advertising his crappy upcoming movies (Delta Farce, Witless Protection, etc.)

EDIT: The Incredibles could use a sequel though. But as far Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, Monsters, Inc. and a Bug's Life are concerned I think they all ended just fine and have no desire for any sequels.

The Tinkerbell movies aren't the only ones being done by Disney animation, and it's a little unfair to judge their upcoming theatrical outings by what will most likely be four very benign made for DVD films.

Only Rednecks and George W. Bush enjoy NASCAR.

I thought Lasseter put an end to Disney's DTV sequels, especially the Tinkerbell movie(s). Why are they still coming out?

I wonder if one of the agreements for Pixar running Disney's animation division was that any currently planned DTV projects would be allowed to continue but no new DTV projects would be allowed?

I'm surprised Cars is getting a sequel. I enjoyed it a lot and think its underrated, but it felt like the general reaction was less positive then some of the other movies. The Incredibles seems more suited to a sequel.

I agree with a few people here who are disappointed with the announcement of a Cars sequel. It is by far my least favorite movie they have done.

I loved the characters and settings in A Bug's Life, Monsters Inc., and The Incredibles but to be honest I am not sure sequels could live up to the originals. Having them make a sequel in fine because if it cheapens the first movie at all I won't be bothered in the least.

I look forward to their upcoming projects and can't wait to see the 3D stuff on the big screen.

I didn't think Cars was that successful at the BO but as successful as Cars is in merchandise I doubt it if it made $200 million more just on merchandise. Isn't merchandising usually under $100 million for a very successful movie?

And I thought Mater was alright. The voice really fit. On the other hand I hated Owen Wilson in the movie and thought it was the one Pixar casting choice that did not fit. But I think I'm the only one that thinks that.

Out of all the Pixar movies that deserve a sequel Incredibles is it. I mean it was the only Pixar film to end with a cliffhanger. All the other pixar films ended definitively to the point where a sequel would cheapen either Monster's Inc., Nemo, Bug's Life, or even Cars.

Really looking forward to the creativity that stems from Pixar in their new movies. An old guy and a young person on a worldwide whirlwind tour? Cool! Two newts being forced to mate? Awesome.

Hasn't the Frog and the Princess been in development for a really long time?

A couple years. AFAIK, it is a traditional hand-drawn 2D film. Those take 3-4 years to complete.

He put an end to the cheapquels and scrapped just about everything about the Tinkerbell movie that was then underway. The plan wasn't to not make Tinkerbell so much as to not make that version of the movie.

Edited to add -- just did a quick Google search and found this on Lasseter and Tinkerbell: http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/new...n-lasseter.php
