Anyone else find it disconcerting that Brad Bird was uninterested in an Incredibles sequel for over a decade until he made a massive flop in Tomorrowland that cost Disney hundreds of millions and possibly torpedoed his career?
>>

I rewatched it recently and it doesn't hold up. Sure it's better than MCU flick, but c'mon it's a 7/10 family adventure talkie nothing more.
>>
>>98641139
He always said that he'd do a sequel when he had an idea for the story.
>>
>>98641162

And after 13 years of having no idea he had one when he needed a guaranteed hit?

Any Pixar sequel / prequel / midquel is dead on arrival.

And yes, fuck Toy Story 2 and 3.
>>
>>98641139
I’m more upset that the plot is “superheroes cause collateral damage! Gasp!” for the hundredth time. Is it seriously impossible to write a superhero film without bringing it up?
>>
>>98642439
i dont like them either, foudn them depressing, but come on, they actually put effort into them!

it's post-2010, when they switched management with disney, pixar went downhill.
>>
I really liked Tomorrowland, I thought it was wonderful.
>>
>>98642567
and the B plot is "Bob stays home to do house chores while taking care of Jack Jack who's constantly manifesting random, dangerous powers".
>>
>>98641139
kind of, not really. It's understandable that he'd use Incredibles as a fallback whenever he felt like coming back.
>>
>>98642439
I very much enjoyed Toy Story 2 as a kid, fuck you.

6/21 of those are animated, 5/6 are sequels

>>98643874

Rashida Jones and her ghostwriter left over oppression and then John Lasseter had to step down as director after being outed as a creep so hopefully it gets cancelled.
>>
>>98643956

that untitled thing is Planes 3.
>>
Tomorrowland wasn't even his fault. He did the best he could with a shitty script from one of the worst screenwriters in Hollywood. Fuck Damon Lindelof.

I read the book as a kid. It had some great concepts, but it was overall trash.

I remember it being pretty weird, like Bill and Ted meets Old school Pulp as written by CS Lewis.

It's pretty weird at points, yeah. The good guys are centaur-pegasus aliens, and there's a ducking creepy scene describing how the protagonist is cradled naked by some sort of telepathic tentacle-hentai yeti aliens at the end of the book. The thing they do with the string explaining how they distort space to travel through the cosmos is simple but admirably clever, and the bad guy is basic but still cool, in a sort of conformitive way.

Unless you're reading into its broader messages, though, like I wasn't when I was fucking 13 or whatever, it's not very good, in my opinion. It flat-out doesn't explain how people like Albert Einstein fight off the wannabe "Fantastic Four: Silver Surfer" sequel wannabe-Galactus, overdone intangible "darkness" thing that swarms around Earth and takes about once and then dropped, and the children are fucking intolerable. The young boy is super fucking punchable, as he's so smart he doesn't learn how to fucking read before starting school because he doesn't want other kids to be alienated from him for being so smart, and how the author rarely describes the children, or ANY character, expressing any sort of active emotion, besides the time one do the centaur ladies cried for who gives-a-fuck reason. For all I knew, the kids were numb-brained, dead-pan faced through the whole story, and from what I remember they really approached the whole galactic adventure with WAY too much casualty.

I read it a long time ago, so keep that in mind, but I'm still not going to watch it when it comes out.

What? Rashida Jones has a ghostwriter? What is this?

Yo, wrinkle in time the book is top-tier.

She's Hollywood royalty celebrity who now bills herself as a "writer" but she's literally never had a writing credit without this same guy credited as her co-writer.
>>
>>98644627
Is that why she left P&R?
What was she/they working on?
>>
>>98644511
If it is, I certainly didn't think so. I had to read a book for. My 7th grade English class, and my fucking World of Warcraft-Muslim teacher gave me the book when I said I liked science-fiction.

I don't read a lot and have a shit-taste in literature anyway, though, so fuck-all my opinion.

>They're making a Mary Poppins sequel
How are they getting away with this? Didn't the author forbid any further adaptations of the books because she hated the original film?
>>
its going to be a grrl power movie and /co/ and /tv/ runoff will bitch about it for months

>>98644775
She died so her artistic integrity is no longer validated. And I mean that as in that how it's being treated.
same thing happened with Roald Dahl, he hated the original willy wonka and said no more adaptations of his work, then we get the bad tim burtin remake. Even more recently Prince thought the idea of singing with a dead singer was fucking retarded and said that's one reason he demanded full control of his work. and we saw what happened at the superb owl last week, and that his wishes were forgone for normie bux.
>>
>>98644775
>>98646305

Remember when they showed her Mary Poppins and she cried because she hated it so much and then she died and they made a movie about it except in the movie she cries because she loves it so much?

I think Matilda was the next Dahl adaptation after Wonka.
>>
>>98646714

The studio and fans of the movie will say he would love it but all we can say for sure is he never wanted another adaption after Wonka.

Maybe because Pixar and Disney is past there prime ad they waited so goddamn long to decide to make a sequel after 3 Cars movies, 2 Airplanes movie, and 1 boat movie. Fucking assholes

Wait did tommorowland flop? that's a shame. I actually really liked it.
>>
>>98646305
You think Roald Dahl would have liked Fantastic Mr. Fox?
>>
>>98649736
>"it flopped because it was "original", not because it was meh"
Get ready for another 10 years of remakes.
>>
>>98650047
Probably. Kept fairly true to the book and actually expanded upon it so yeah probably.
