So...about that "Monsters University" coming this Summer. I guess that means that the "Monsters Inc." ride in DCA is here to stay. Along with that "Laugh Floor" thing in Florida's Tommorowland. Does the prequel mean they'll both be getting updates?
Did the release of Toy Story 3 mean that TSMM got an upgrade? Does the existence of a third film confirm that it's not going anywhere?
"Cars" also had a sequel,released in 2011, but "Carsland" in DCA is of course, set entirely in the World of the first movie, even though it opened in 2012. (though construction of course had to have been well underway in 2011)
What am I saying? That the announcement of a "Nemo" sequel, (which almost sounds more like a Dory "spinoff") doesn't necessarily prove that the ride(along with the "Living Seas" thing, the show in DAK, etc.)is staying, or is getting an update. It just shows that the original film did well(as does seemingly everything from Pixar), has an enduring following after almost 10 years, and has been spun off/synergized into sequels, theme park ride makeovers, shows, parade units, etc. So what else is new.
Anyway, the one Pixar movie that seems to be getting shortchanged in the theme park department is the one that was my favorite,"The Incredibles". And I guess with the Marvel acquisition, that may not be changing anytime soon.
