    Finding Nemo next year, I think - two fish seperated by the Great Barrier Reef.

    Then, in '04 - The Fantastics, Brad Bird's follow-up to The Iron Giant, about a dysfunctional family of superheroes.

    Is anyone else tremendously disappointed with the trailer for Finding Nemo? I really enjoyed Monsters Inc. and the Toy Story movies, but the trailer for Finding Nemo is just...not funny or interesting in any conceivable way.

    On first viewing it really impressed me, but it may have been the animation and background, which is amazing. I also liked the opening a lot, the dialogue and style seemed kinda quirky and unusual for Disney, also a little surreal, if a little obvious.
    But after that bit is over, I think I have to agree with you, the gags seems kinda bland and old.
    Still, I look forward to the next trailer if nothing else [​IMG]
    And the DVD will look amazing of course [​IMG]

    NO SEQUELS... Pixar wants to get out of their contract ASAP with Disney (IIRC, it is 5 feature films which now include Toy Story, A Bug's Life, and Monsters Inc). You see, sequels DO NOT COUNT towards this 5 feature film goal (remember: Toy Story 2 was supposed to be a direct-to-video production, only to be changed into a theatrical release before its release)... so only after FINDING NEMO and THE INCREDIBLES will we see any more Pixar sequels.

    Edit***

    Link from below says Pixar signed away their rights to any of the stories/characters in the for-Disney films Pixar has made.

    So that means no Toy Story III, probably ever. Considering the crap Disney churns out and calls "entetainment", I can't conceive of any possible way they could make a good TSIII.

    The older I get, the *more* I hate Disney. They're just such ... @$$h0l3$!. (sigh)

    I can't wait for non-Disney Pixar films. See yas Mouse.

    I seem to recall rewading somewhere that Disney wanted pixar to make "Toy Story 3", but Pixar did not want to do it unless it got counted towards their 5-picture deal, which would make it their last film for Disney.

    "Finding Nemo" looks gorgeous, though. And from one of the script reviews at AICN, it seems like the movie will be quite witty and funny as well. I can't wait to see it.

    I'm another animation fan who is looking forward to the next Pixar flick and those to follow.
    To support their stories, each movie that Pixar produces breaks through barriers that were common to computer generated imagery. Among many other hurdles, A Bug's Life tackled photorealism, Toy Story 2 tackled believable human characters, Monsters, Inc. tackled realistic fur, and it looks as though Finding Nemo will be tackling water.
