That being said, the Variety article that broke the story about this sequel implicitly says that it will not be based on ideas from either of the direct-to-video animated sequels.

Oh boy...can't wait for everyone to start the complaining it's an original story and how awful it is. :mellow:

I just want the filmmakers, whoever they are, to make the movie they want to make. If people like it, great. If people don't like it, great.

I wonder if the sequel will be a musical, with all new songs? Hopefully they will bring back Alan Menken. Maybe the could finally work "Proud of You Boy" into a movie.

I would assume so. Since the first film was a musical, it would be pretty weird to produce a sequel that completely dropped that format.

I assume that they will have Menken back as long as he wants to come back. He has never actually written music for a sequel to one of his previous films before, because all the other sequels were direct-to-video cheapie productions and I'm sure they didn't want to pay him. For a big theatrical release sequel, I'm sure they would though, provided that he finds it creatively worthwhile to come back. He obviously isn't in a position where he needs the money.

Proud of Your Boy is a better song than this iteration of the franchise deserves in my opinion. I thought they should have included it in the live-action remake before seeing it, but when I saw it I was glad that it lives in the higher-quality stage version instead of in that movie.
