Still hoping for a sequel to THE INCREDIBLES to be announced someday!

No please, that really would be a shame:
a good Pixar movie getting the Disney generic sequel treatment...
This Nemo sequel will probably only make Ellen happy...

Yes, it would be tricky to do a sequel to THE INCREDIBLES that matched the original, but the Toy Story sequels were very good. If they can do it justice, I would love to revisit THE INCREDIBLES again. I wonder if a sequel would include cameos from Marvel heroes now that Disney owns them too?

Finding Nemo is my favorite Pixar film, and one of my favorite films period, but it never particularly left me wanting a sequel. Both plot- wise and thematically, everything was pretty tightly wrapped up by the end. Hopefully they have a good idea of what angle to come at it to make an interesting movie, but unlike with, say, Incredibles, I have absolutely no clue what angle that would be.

Dory tries to find her own way home, a challenge considering she has dementia.

I'm still waiting for the follow up to that Lamp and Ball story that Pixar did all that time ago...

Why not re-entitle this farce to "Finding Wallet".

I endorse sequels/trilogies when the universe has more to say.

First movie was great, wth are you doing (other than a money grab) doing a sequel for this?

bleh.

C'mon guys..this has to be a really elaborate April Fool's joke....

I mean this is Pixar we are talking about. Even they can't be this bereft of ideas, right? Oh wait, I forgot about Brave.

And people bash the the Gaming Industry for regurgitating the "same kind of game" over and over again.....

Pixar is not really the creative Pixar we were used to when they startet with all their great films like Toy Story, a bugs life, Monsters Inc, Nemo.
Disney bought Pixar 2006 and since then, Pixar started to make/plan more and more Sequels an more and more mediocre films. Ratatouille was the last really GREAT Pixar film in my opinion.
Toy Story 3 was cool, but then... nah, not so much. Still nice, but not as good as before.
And now, more and more sequels... It's a shame :(

I REALLY dont like the idea of a nemo sequel, but I have to disagree with you on TS3, while TS2 wasn't that great in my opinion the third installment was much more emotional and had more depth than I believed possible.

That being said a nemo sequel does seem like a pretty cheap way out and I dont really think it will be al that great, but in the past month I cant even count how many studio's announced their closure. Maybe building off an existing project with existing assets as well as built in marketing isn't the worst thing if it means keeping people employed and the company rolling so they CAN start original projects.

One of my teachers used to say, some people are here to really make something of them selves and other are here just to pay for the lights. Not every project has to be absolutely groundbreaking as long as it buys you the time and ability to do so in the future.

Considering how alien the deep sea is and how many species of fish haven't been Pixarised yet I'm looking forward to the Nemo sequel.

And, I would have to disagree with you about TS2. TS2 was a great sequel in every way!

Well, I don't think I'm completely alone in my opinion. It's like 100% on the tomatometer. Who can watch the scene when Jessie tells the story of Emily and not choke back tears? Why you'd have to have a heart shot full of novocaine to not be moved by that!

I agree with you that Toy Story 3 did take things to another level and it was very emotional as well. The couple I saw it with weren't too moved though. I asked them after the movie if they got choked up at all. The wife answered, "We don't cry for plastic toys." Heartless! But, like you say, to each his own!
