Pixar Ready To Cool It with the Sequels for a While

From iwatchstuff, Though the next few years will see Pixar busting out the much anticipatedIncredibles 2, the dubiously merited Toy Story 4, and fucking Cars 4, after that, the company claims, if you can make it through this sea of familiarity, it's all originals for the foreseeable future.

Speaking to EntertainmentWeekly, Pixar president Jim Morris said that, though the sequel Finding Dory is on track to become his studio's highest-grossing film ever, "Everything after Toy Story [4] and The Incredibles [2] is an original right now."

It's said, following the second Incredibles' June 21, 2019 release, we'll get new, all-original properties on March and June of 2020. After that, Morris explained, it's "highly likely" that two more original films that are in early development will hit screens. And, more notably, EW reports:
No other sequels are planned at the moment, Morris says.

That means you'll have to wait another decade, at least, for any follow-ups to old favorites like Ratatouille and WALL-E

But if nothing else, at least the future children of 2026 still have hope for Cars v Planes: Fall of Mater.

But there wasn't a Cars 3!

Well that's good news, when Pixar did stop becoming less-than-perfect it was in certain sequels. But all the Toy Story flicks are gold.
