I am really looking forward to Brave. Finally a Pixar movie that is not a sequel!

Wat? What about Up?

That was like 2 years ago.
Last year was Toy Story 3 (which I wasn't THAT excited about in the first place)
This year is Cars 2 which I won't be seeing (I haven't seen Cars 1)
Two sequel movies two years in a row is boring.

To be fair I was more worried about Toy Story 3 than excited, however when I watched it I was amazed by how brilliant it was. It stands right up there beside the other two; in fact it may even be better than Toy Story 2 because it doesn't have any annoying songs in it. Despite all of this, if Toy Story 4 were to be announced, then yet again I would be worried...

I don't think there will be another Toy Story. They've closed the book on the story pretty well as is. It's like how you won't see a sequel to WALL-E or Up because their stories wrap up really nicely as is, in addition to the critical acclaim they have as is. Likewise, it makes sense why the new Monsters movie they're planning will be a prequel, because the story wrapped up pretty nicely there too.

I had heard it was supposed to be the movie after the new Monsters, but now it seems like they're going with an original, which better be intriguing!!!

Bee tee dubs, there was a film in production called Newt that got canned because it was too similar to Rio and, with the main character being a newt, there was worry it would be confused with Rango. However, Pixar is also doing CGI work on the live-action John Carter and 1906, both directed by Pixar directors (Andrew Stanton and Brad Bird respectively) (and! and Michael Giacchino is scoring John Carter!), so I'm looking forward to those.

No, it's like if we had Anthologies of Interest for three straight episodes. You'd be craving an original story after a while.

But movies are different, they don't come out every week. And the plots and characters are miles apart.

Well, that clears up why Newt got the can for me. I never got around to seeing Rio but heard it was kinda meh... just like I thought Rango was (he was a chameleon anyways. WTF gets newts and chameleons mixed up?). I probably would've liked Newt regardless of whether or not it was similar to other films. It's good they take care in not making rehashes of other movies with different dialogue though. I'm a bit worried about Pixar's live-action outing and Brave but I'm sure it'll be fine. It occurs to me what Pixar is doing now is eerily parallel to Disney's legacy. They created brilliant films everyone (almost) loved, they crafted them meticulously and they are now venturing to live action, something Walt did for a time. One could really nerd out in seeking parallels.

Zoidy: they're not Pixar movies outright. They'll be considered more Disney films than Pixar, since Pixar's only doing the CGI, which is supposedly going to be more realistic than Avatar's. I actually think Disney will downplay the Pixar connection with the films (and probably play up John Carter's connection with Jerry Bruckheimer) as to market them to a more adult audience.

Yeah, I was kind of worried about it too. Once I heard that they were making Toy Story 3 I thought they were kidding. Even the trailer didn't look too appealing to me. But when I saw it, I thought it was pretty good, not my favorite Pixar film, but it was satisfying.
I also heard that Pixar will only make sequels that actually have a GOOD story.

Itís a great movie, but come on, just look at the way it ended. If ever I saw an ending just begging for a sequel itís that one. Whoís to say it would be bad if they made another one anyway? Just look at Toy Story 2 and 3, both brilliant! To me The Incredibles had more scope for a sequel anyway so I donít see why not. I would love one, but only if Brad Bird was involved...

BRAVE TRAILER!!!

Looks meh...

On another note, how ironic that I was talking about Toy Story 4 yesterday, and then what do I see today? That Toy Story 4 may actually go ahead! eek I stand by what I said yesterday though...

Brave looks ok. I'm a little discouraged about the fact that Pixar's first female protagonist has to be a princess. You know who should have had her own movie, freaking Ellie from Up. She was an interesting character and she never even spoke!

I'm looking forward to Brave now... and not too forward to Toy Story 4.

Incredibles 2 would be awesome if it involved a "classic" supervillain. Syndrome wouldn't work again. It needs somebody who isn't motivated by money or revenge. Somebody enslaving humanity or destroying the world purely for teh evulz.

Whilst I'm not so sure it would work, Megamind being a good guy now in a world where superheros haven't been outlawed, I'd love to see Megamind get a sequel. Perhaps with something similar to the plot of The Incredibles: a disgruntled or disillusioned fan sets out to crush his former idol, and havoc ensues.

I think I'm going to watch Megamind now.

I agree that Robots is a great movie, and aside from Shrek one of the few decent non-Pixar 3D computer animated movies I've seen. I haven't seen much of Dreamworks output since Robots though. I'm not keen on what I saw of Ice Age. Having said that, perhaps this is a discussion for the Dreamworks thread. What, if there isn't one then you know what to do. This is the Pixar thread dammit! mad...

Blue Sky = Fox = Ice Age, Robots, Horton, Rio
Dreamworks = Antz, Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda
Illumination Entertainment = Universal = Despicable Me, Hop
Sony = Surf's Up, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Then there's Disney's in-house CGI attempts like Chicken Little and Tangled.

I think that's all the studios right now for CGI... As you can see, Pixar is a little more niche.

Absolutely not. Although they both produce 3D computer animated movies, I feel they are considerably different in approach. Pixar, like Dreamworks has its own unique style, identity and approach. It would be like having a Disney and Warner Brothers cartoons thread, it would be an odd place. I don't feel they should become joined, and there is a limit to how many poll options that can be included in a Peel poll even now, despite the fact that it's grown since when this thread was originally made...

If anything I believe there is more reason to have separate threads for these studios now than there was back in 2003. Each studio has made significantly more movies now and each thread would have much more to talk about than back then. Having much more output now means much more comparisons can be made within and the thread can be all the healthier. Each studio has crafted their own identity, although Pixar perhaps quicker than Dreamworks...

But to cut the crap, the main reason is because I hold Pixar in a much higher regard than I do Dreamworks tongue...
