With the news that "Toy Story 4" may be in the works, I started to think: Are sequels hurting Disney theme parks and resorts? The same characters are coming back film after film, giving no chance for a breath of fresh air.
Over at DCA there are already attractions like Toy Story Midway Mania, a bug's land, Monsters Inc.: Mike & Sulley to the Rescue and the soon-to-be Carsland. All of which are movies that have or will be getting (a) sequel(s), minus "A Bug's Life".
So because the same characters always coming back, we don't really get new character faces around the parks and attractions based off of their films. (They sometimes do short engagements for newer characters, but did you really see Lots-O that much at DCA?)
I feel like things are going to be stagnant for a while until fresh stories are presented to Disney and/or Pixar. Hopefully "Brave" can hold it's own so we get to see new things in the parks!
(Even little things like the "Wilderness Explorers Camp", based off "UP!", can be appreciated)
