No. Brave was even more boring than Cars 1. I enjoyed Cars 2 for being a James Bond movie with cars. Cars sells insane amounts of toys, we will get Cars 4 and 5 too.

Re: Pixar is making The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3

I love the Incredibles, so I am very excited to hear they're doing a second one. Not only is it a superhero story, which lends itselt well to ongoing stories, but it's also a family drama and that also leads to some good ongoing stories.
Cars 3 on the other hand, I really don't care to much about. I thought the first one was good, but I never bothered with the second, so it'll take a lot to get me interested in a third one.

Re: Pixar is making The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3

Actually, clumping the news of an Incredibles sequel in with a Cars sequel kind of dampens the excitement of it some. Cars 2 was lame. The 1st one wasn't even all that great. A third seems like overkill for them

Whereas, I've been waiting a decade for a follow-up to The Incredibles. It is perhaps the best serial idea they've ever had at Pixar, even more appropriate for serialization than Toy Story was. Hopefully they have something up to par for their effort.

Re: Pixar is making The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3

Cars is the one Pixar franchise with zero peripheral demographic appeal, but it's not surprising that they're making another, between being Lasseter's indulgence and a merchandising bonanza.

A sequel to The Incredibles has been desired by many for years, and I'm glad that Brad Bird stuck to his guns about not doing one until he had a good idea.

Re: Pixar is making The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3

Peripherally, I liked "Planes", but then again I'm a nerd for planes. My wife and daughter got bored pretty quickly. However, I enjoyed both the Cars movies despite not being a car nerd. And I've bought enough Cars merchandise for various nephews to know that it's a big thing for them. So bring it on.

Incredibles, though! About bloody time. Want!

Am I right that the Planes DVD spinoff isn't even from Pixar at all, just Disney?

Re: Pixar is making The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3

Yep. Hence, "peripherally", though they're definitely in the same universe. Must note that I'm not at all excited for the Planes sequel though. Just reading the advanced synopsis, it seems they're pointlessly gutting the main character to sell more toys-- err, I mean tell a different story with the same planes in a new locale.

Re: Pixar is making The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3

More Incredibles! Great news, this. Hope they stick to the tone/feel of the original - i.e. NO "hit" pop song wedged into the movie to sell records like so many animated features seem to do. Just give another great story and visuals like the first time, please.

Re: Pixar is making The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3

Excited for The Incredibles 2, for sure. And glad that Brad Bird held out for the right story; The Incredibles is a tougher proposition for serializing than it seems on the surface, since the original article was so pitch perfect from so many angles (the use of powers as metaphors for character traits, critique of the self-esteem and insurance-premium driven culture of mediocrity, commentary on celebrity and fandom culture, commentary on the challenges of demobilization, family drama, midlife crisis yarn and straight-ahead superhero adventure all in one) that to follow it with just a regular superhero story would inevitably disappoint.

merchandising bonanza.

Yeah, that's pretty much it right there. At this point, the 3rd movie could be terrible as well and still sell a ton of toys, since the movies are incredibly popular with young ones. I see it primarily as a merchandising vehicle franchise. As long as it keeps making Disney money with toys, they'll keep making new movies to introduce new toys to the line.

Oh yeah, looking forward to the Incredibles sequel

Re: Pixar is making The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3

The thing about a merchandising blitz as the fuel for another Cars movie is that it's not necessary. Those Monsters Inc. movies are much better (Though I haven't seen the university one) & just as marketable to kids. Make another one of those if you have to. I suppose they should just get the 3rd Cars out of the way, & then maybe they'll be done with it

But dear god The Incredibles is a concept that's fun for all ages & equally profitable. I'm surprised it took so long to come up with a worthwhile idea. That would seem to be the most fertile concept they ever devised

I'm guessing the Cars toys are a lot cheaper to make...
