Pixar Plans To Cut Back On Sequels

Pixar and Walt Disney Animation president Ed Catmull tells Buzzfeed that the computer animation company’s focus is now moving back to original properties.

Following a flurry of sequels in recent years including “Toy Story 3,” “Cars 2,” “Monsters University” and the upcoming “Finding Nemo 2,” Catmull says the company has now set a mandate to release one original Pixar film annually.

Added to this, the company will also release a sequel or prequel to an existing work every second year.

We see this in their upcoming schedule starting with “The Good Dinosaur” in Summer 2014, “Inside Out” in Summer 2015 and the ‘Nemo’ sequel “Finding Dory” in late 2015.
