    I'm pretty sure that's exactly what I said I would be doing before you got your knickers in a twist about it, chief.

    Or is this one of those non-discussion discussion threads where we're not supposed to mention the subject matter in the OP?

    Hell, I loved Bolt but if you think it sold a lot of toys I have a bridge to sell you. And again, I think Cars is good entertainment. The second wasn't as good as the first but it's hardly the standard-bearer for that.

    Once the toys went crazy and they built a Cars Land in CA (and plans go back and forth about bringing it to DHS in FL) there were going to be Car movies up the wazoo.

    Funny because I know several children that don't like Ratatouille or The Incredibles. Wall-e and Up are forgotten but to this day the kids still have Cars backpacks and they weren't born when the first movie came out.

    Disney/Pixar makes 2 billion yearly through just Cars merchandise sales. That's right BILLION.

    Nothing else they have is even in the same ballpark in terms of toy seller.

    Also the Cars franchise has the full backing of John Lasseter, the man who has full film greenlighting powers at both Disney and Pixar. I only hope they have listened to the criticism of Cars 2, and give us a better sequel.

    I'm sure there might even be upwards of ten in total, but the point stands.

    Bingo. if people haven't read the Steve Jobs book I suggest you ready the 3-5 Pixar chapters. When Disney bought Pixar the deal was that John Lassester would become the president of both Pixar and Disney branches of animation.

    And I still stick to the fact Cars 2 was a lot more fun and less boring than Cars. However it felt more like what a Cars TV movie would have been.

    I mentioned it only for the 'Down' joke.

    I thought Up was crap.

    This is great news about The Incredibles. I love that movie. It's the best Marvel movie ever made.

    Now if only we could get a sequel to Megamind-- which was the best DC movie ever made.


    (And, yes, I know that Megamind wasn't Pixar. I'm just sayin.')

    Indeed, it looks as though he's found it. From The Hollywood Reporter:

    When now-sixteen-year old Dash (Spencer Fox) is brutally killed during a family battle, Bob and Helen Parr (Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter) reconsider their prior willingness to let their underage children fight and risk their lives, and struggle to hold on their marriage. Meanwhile, Violet (Sarah Vowell), no longer wanting to be defined by her mutation, joins her school's Math Olympics team, where she strikes up a friendship with Lucius Best/Frozone's (Samuel L. Jackson) deaf daughter. But in the shadows, a new threat to supers worldwide looms.

    ... I'll be honest, I didn't foresee Brad Bird/Pixar going in that adult a direction.

    Interesting. Why exactly?

    Ignoring the first six minutes, I found the film dragged and meandered on. Don't recall if I even finished watching it.

    It was better than Ratatouille though.

    Gaith, I'm assuming that was a joke? the link is dead. and it sounded unlikely.

    Here's one idea: There was speculation on Beyond the Trailer that Disney/Pixar made a deal to produce Bird's 'Tomorrowland' for him doing The Incredibles 2.

    Brad Bird is a director/writer I'm fascinated with. I actually watched Mission:Impossible-Protocol because he helmed it.

    I'm interested in seeing where he takes the Parr family in part 2. And, of course, I'm looking forward to more Frozone/Lucius Best as well.

    I work in a Wal-Mart toys department and I believe it. We have a ton of Cars toys and they all seem to move pretty well. I don' t know how times I've seen excited kids rushing over to the Cars section to get something.

    It was Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

    Meh....Protocol. Mission Protocol. Ghost Protocol. Splinter Cell. Metal Gear Solid.

    The point being: The entry Brad Bird directed is the one I actually set aside time to watch.;)
