We can't get enough of our favorite Pixar characters -- which is good, because Pixar keeps putting them in new movies! The Monsters Inc characters will return next month in Monsters University, while a Finding Nemo sequel, called Finding Dory, is slated for 2015. Last week, Disney CEO Bob Iger hinted that at least one other Pixar film would soon be getting a sequel. With all those great stories to choose from, which one has Disney put into the pipeline? Here are our top 4 choices for the next Pixar sequel, along with a few story suggestions (just in case the folks at Disney are listening).
Toy Story 4 - The bar is set high for this one, since the existing Toy Story trilogy is more or less perfect. It's also a complete arc: Andy (the owner of Buzz, Woody and the gang) begins as a young child, moves into his older years, then finally goes off to college. And yet, Toy Story 3 introduced a wonderful new heroine in Bonnie, who conveniently inherited all of Andy's toys. What if Bonnie's backpack broke en route to an exotic family vacation, and the toys had to travel across the world to find her? We'd love a plot that gave some of the minor toys, like Trixie the Triceratops and Rex the T-Rex, a chance to shine.
WALL-E 2 - At the end of WALL-E, humankind was launching a new civilization. What better place to begin a sequel? Perhaps the robots no longer feel they have a purpose in the world, until a crisis teaches robots and humans to work together once more.
The Incredibles 2 - Superheroes are a hot ticket right now, and the original Incredibles was ahead of the curve. Really, the sequel possibilities are endless. It would make sense to focus on the kids this time around -- particularly Violet, the shy teenage girl who can disappear at will, and baby Jack-Jack, who appears to possess infinite superpowers.
Brave 2 - We all fell in love with Merida, the strong-willed Scottish princess from Brave. Why couldn't she be the Indiana Jones or James Bond of Pixar? We could see her going on quests, defeating mythical bad guys, and maybe even saving a prince or two.
