Walt Disney Studios is actively proceeding with a second sequel to Pixar’s “Toy Story” franchise on their own.
Disney is in the process of setting up a digital animation facility in Glendale — not far from their bitter rivals DreamWorks Animation — that will be used for the production of “Toy Story 3.”
While Disney has the rights to do sequels to “Toy Story,” it has held off from doing so in the past because the guys at Pixar haven’t wanted to lose control of the characters.
But with Pixar announcing earlier this year that it would end its distribution relationship with Disney following the 2005 release of “Cars,” Disney have signaled their determination to bring Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the gang back to the big screen.
This totally sucks.
I already wrote about this before when it was just speculation and before the plans got under way and I still maintain my same position.
I just feel that without Pixar behind the wheel, this will be a miserable failure.
No one can produce that Pixar magic, not even Disney.
Plus Disney suck at sequels, their storywriters suck, and their 3D animations aren’t that good.
I think it’s a shame Disney are foolishly going to screw up something as great as Toy Story.
