Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

And I'm like whaaa?

As odd as it sounds, a change in the title (as opposed to Finding Nemo 2), fills me with a bit of confidence. Hopefully this is more of a Toy Story sequel rather than a Cars sequel.

Stanton is directing it himself, which at least tells us something.

I'm still not pleased that Disney's turned Pixar into another sequel factory.
First things first, I'm surrealist

Yeah, Pixar's one of the greatest creative entities on the planet but sequels mean money.
However, their upcoming slate the Día de los Muertos movie, The Good Dinosaur and The Inside the Human Mind movie are promising.

ok, i admit, that may be the one article of yours i didn't read, memorise, and catalogue for future reference. dammit.

if those things actually get made they will redeem pixar out of this underwhelming rut they're in, and then some. i mean, THE BRAIN! DINOSAURS! ... THE BRAIN!

no mention there of a "dia de los muertos" movie though.

From director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, the filmmaking team behind the Academy Award®-winning “Toy Story 3,” comes a wholly original Pixar Animation Studios film that delves into the vibrant holiday of Día de los Muertos.


Here's the thing, Pixar spend many, many, many years working on every project. These films are all in various stages of preproduction/production right now. So when the original film Newt got cancelled (because of the vile fiends at Dreamworks), that must have meant a lot of wasted money and resources. The last couple of years most certainly have been a rut but they should be able to find their way out.

'Blackfish' gives Pixar second thoughts on 'Finding Dory' plot
BY AMY KAUFMAN; Los Angeles Times

“Finding Dory” may be undergoing a sea change as Pixar is taking a page from a little-seen whale documentary.

The Walt Disney-owned animation studio is hard at work on "Finding Dory," a follow-up to the 2003 oceanic blockbuster "Finding Nemo." But this spring, after Pixar executives viewed "Blackfish," which raises sharp questions about the health of whales in captivity, the studio decided to make substantial changes to the "Dory" script.

According to Louie Psihoyos, who directed the Oscar-winning dolphin slaughter documentary “The Cove,” Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter and “Dory” director Andrew Stanton sat down with “Blackfish” director Gabriela Cowperthwaite in April after seeing her movie.

“At the end of the [Pixar] movie, some marine mammals are sent to an aquatic park/rehab facility -- a SeaWorld-type environment,” explained Psihoyos, who heard about the meeting through a friend in the animal rights movement who lives near Pixar’s Emeryville, Calif., campus. “After seeing ‘Blackfish,’ they retooled the film so that the sea creatures now have the choice to leave that marine park. They told Gabriela they didn’t want to look back on this film in 50 years and have it be their ‘Song of the South,'" a reference to the 1946 Disney musical that was widely viewed to be racist.

Pixar declined to comment. Cowperthwaite confirmed she screened the film on the studio's Northern California campus, but would only say that employees there were deeply "impacted" by her movie.

"These are obviously people who are dedicated to researching every topic they cover," the filmmaker said. "Whether 'Blackfish' affects their creative decisions, I can't say."

The plot for "Finding Dory," set for release in November 2015, is not yet locked. At Pixar, as at many other animation studios, filmmakers often make changes to stories up until the final months before release.

However, the story will revolve around an amnesiac blue fish voiced by Ellen DeGeneres who doesn't know who raised her. Dory was a key character in "Finding Nemo," a box office hit that grossed $921.7 million worldwide and won the Oscar for animated feature.

Although Pixar films are intended for family audiences, it's not unusual for them to examine social or political issues -- the Lasseter-directed "Cars 2" included a subplot about alternative fuel; Stanton's "WALL-E" takes place on a deserted, trash-strewn future Earth.

"Blackfish" is a look into what caused a killer whale to fatally attack SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010. The movie began its limited theatrical release in mid-July and has grossed around $700,000. The documentary will likely be wider seen when it debuts on CNN on Oct. 24.

The well-reviewed movie has raised the ire of SeaWorld. Days before the film hit theaters, the company sent a letter to film critics addressing what it claims are inaccuracies in the movie. In recent weeks, the heat on the park chain has increased as two separate videos depicting animals stranded outside of SeaWorld pools have gone viral.
