This is probably the most appropriate time to flash a still of our favorite, puppy-eyed emotion personified. According to a report by Yahoo Movies UK’s Mike Williams, Disney Pixar’s president Jim Morris confirmed that there are no more sequels planned after The Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4.
Here’s what Morris said to Entertainment Weekly in an interview:
Most studios jump on doing a sequel as soon as they have a successful film, but our business model is a filmmaker model, and we don’t make a sequel unless the director of the original film has an idea that they like and are willing to go forward on.
Morris also talked about what Pixar is currently working on, as well as what titles will not be receiving sequels.
Pete Docter (director of Up, Inside Out) has an original for his next film. Brad Bird (director of Ratatouille)…is working on The Incredibles , and we haven’t really spoken about [a sequel to] that. And WALL-E is close to my heart…but that was really a love story that had its beginning, middle and end, so we’re not really planning any further stories in those worlds at this point.
Per Williams’s report, there will be two new releases in 2020, which will be set in “unusual but believable worlds that take us in even other directions than we’ve pursued in the past.”
That’s a good reason to be joyful.
