No more sequels for Pixar?

One thing is certain. You won't be seeing The Incredibles family or the super-chef rat prancing about a kitchen in a "Second Serving of Ratatouille" any time soon.

 
After pulling off a series of successively successful sequels like The Toy Story trilogy, Cars and Cars 2, Pixar has now announced that it will look more into doing originals.

"Every once in a while, we get a film where we want or people want to see something continuing in that world -- which is the rationale behind the sequel," Pixar Prez Ed Catmull reportedly told BuzzFeed. "They want those characters, which means we were successful with them. But if you keep doing that, then you aren't doing original films."

We agree Mr Catmull, but who wouldn't want to see WALL-E in another space adventure?
 
Finding Dory, the sequel to Finding Nemo will find its way into theatres only in late 2015.

Until then, satiate your Pixar series hunger with Monsters University, a prequel to 2001 Monsters Inc.

 

So is all lost for Pixar lovers? Catmull says no. The studio has planned a method to alternatively do originals and sequels.

"We're going to have an original film every year, then every other year have a sequel to something," Catmull said. "That's the rough idea."

Very well then! May the lovers of animation unite to watch the next Pixar entry slated to release in 2014 - The Good Dinosaur. Sounds adorable, doesn't it?
