Pixar Confirms No more Sequels After 2019

Pixar

Pixar‘s president Jim Morris has confirmed that they are stopping with sequels after Toy Story 4, Cars 3 and The Incredibles 2.

There’s no doubt that Pixar strives to produce good stories and compelling narratives for all ages. However, franchise fatigue is a very real concern and movie audiences are becoming weary of such practices so its to no surprise that Pixar is willing to pull the plug on some of it’s greatest hits. Just a few weeks ago Finding Dory hit theaters and Cars 3 is arriving next year. Toy Story 4 will make it in 2018 and one year later, we’ll have The Incredibles 2.

Did you dream about a WALL-E sequel? Or a further crazy adventure with the mental protagonists of Inside Out? Forget about it. Pixar has just confirmed that they do not hold plans to proceed with any other sequels after 2019. For the time being, at least.

Pixar Will Bring More Original Content

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Pixar’s president Jim Morris talks about novelty and fresh content. “Everything after Toy Story and The Incredibles is an original right now”, he confirms. He also mentions that while their first plan did not pan out (they wanted to have a new title every year and a sequel every other year), they are convinced this switch is the way to go this time.

In that respect, 2020 is looking promising for them. Following the release of The Incredibles 2, they have two new pictures in the pipeline that will take place in “unusual but believable worlds that take us in even other directions that we’ve pursued in the past”.

Morris also noted that Pixar still has “seven sequels in a spate of 21 originals” and maybe, only maybe, they will revisit some of their classics at a later stage. “A sequel in some regards is even harder”, Morris says, “because you’ve got this defined world which, on the one hand, is a leg up, and on the other hand has expectations that you can’t disappoint on”.

We’ll see what happens in the end. Finding Dory, after all, has been met with big success and we are almost certain Toy Story 4 will perform just as well if not better.
