Pixar Focusing On Original Films After ‘Toy Story 4’ & Other Recent Sequels

THR has a new report about the future of Pixar, which is rebounding from the dismissal of its co-founder and leader John Lasseter after accusations of sexual misconduct came to light. And in the report, it is revealed that after the upcoming “Toy Story 4,” which arrives June 21, Pixar is going to be focusing solely on new, original projects and not sequels, led by new boss Pete Docter.

“He’s really looking out for the new voices and really loading up the development pool,” Producer Mark Nielsen said. “It’s all original films after this one right now.”

So, for those worried that Pixar was relying too heavily on sequels, don’t worry. In 2020, the studio is set to release “Onward,” directed by “Monsters University” helmer Dan Scanlon. And though the studio is said to be working on a sequel to the ‘Monsters’ brand, that series will be sent directly to Disney+.

And even with Lasseter receiving a “story by” credit for “Toy Story 4,” along with a whopping seven other writers, it appears that the future of Pixar begins now.
What do you think? Is this the correct way forward for Pixar? Or is their a way to balance new IP and sequels?

Personally I'd like to see them focus on remaking all the animated classics once the live action versions are done. This way they don't have to worry about coming up with new ideas. :cautious: I know Iger hates new ideas.

This is most definitely what Pixar needs to do. But it's also what Disney and Fox need to do. And pretty much every other major studio as well.

Sequels are fine in moderation. But we've gotten to the point where literally every movie being released by every studio is a sequel, reboot, "reimagining," spinoff, or something of that nature. Absolutely no one in Hollywood is taking chances on new ideas. That really needs to change.

Didn’t they say this a few years ago? It is also a direct contradiction of their boss who says franchises are the focus.
