    Upcoming Animated Sequels

    Ok, so my last few visits to the cinema have thrown up some trailers for upcoming animated sequels. Both of these were interesting in that they were trailers made up of a scene from the movies suggesting that these films are both still very much 'works in progress'.

    Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaur - quite pleased to see this one even though Ice Age 2 was a bit of a let down. Of course the trailer features Scrat and his eventual encounter with a T-rex which got the whole theatre laughing.

    Madagascar: Back 2 Africa - WTF?! Does Madagascar warrant or even deserve a sequel? My faith in Dreamworks animation was just getting set when I saw this. The original was one of their worst and I can't say that this film looks any better. Maybe a movie spin-off for the penguins or the lemurs, but the central four characters are just so irritating. What next? Shark Tale: The Revenge?

    Dreamworks of course is also working on Shrek Goes Fourth while over at Disney, Lassiter has stopped all animated sequels in an attempt to improve the quality (excepting Toy Story 3 which is one franchise I would be happy to see continue forever).

    With today's animated movies having such a wide variance in quality (from Wall-E to Space Chimps) where does the animated sequel sit? And which animated movies would you like to see get the sequel treatment?

    Don't forget Pixar is also making Cars 2.
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

    Re: Upcoming Animated Sequels

    From wiki:
    A sequel has been announced for a Summer 2012 release, simply titled Cars 2. Disney has confirmed that Brad Lewis will be the director.[29] On April 9, 2008, John Lasseter commented "the Cars are going international" in the sequel.[30] Cars will become the second Pixar film to have a sequel, after Toy Story.

    Madagascar 2 looks horrendous. It has one of the most annoying trailers of all time. I think an Ice Age 3 is pushing it, the first 2 were pretty good, but nothing special. Will the Ice Age franchise become the next Land Before Time with a series of seemingly neverending sequels?

    Ice Age 3? Is this going to be like Land Before Time, part 5000? I've seriously lost count on how many sequels they've made out of that one.

    Re: Upcoming Animated Sequels

    The Land Before Time franchise has been going so long surely time has been discovered by now!

    Cars 2 fills me with dread - the original is one of Pixar's weakest. Although the characters do have potential, the story was weak and the pace generally slow. Let's hope the sequel improves on it. And more Mater please!

    I would like to see more adventures from the Parr family - The Incredibles 2!

    Re: Upcoming Animated Sequels

    I dread the idea of Toy Story 3, just as I thought that Dreamworks had gotten lucky to have lightning strike twice with Shrek 1 & 2, number 3 was awful. Toy Story one and two were great, but let's face it it was the same plot reversed for TS2 (TS1 Buzz gets lost Woody rescues him, TS2 Woody gets lost Buzz rescues him).

    I would prefer new story's new characters, new films...but not like Space CHimps, or Madagascar, or Into The Wild, or Chicken Little, or...

    Re: Upcoming Animated Sequels

    I did dread Toy Story 3 when Disney were planning on making it without Pixar. However, Pixar have a flautless track record (even their worst is no less than 'very good') and so I have enough faith in them to deliver.
    Dreamworks, on the other hand, has a patchy animated history to say the least and they continue to churn out Shrek movies (wasn't there supposed to be a Puss in Boots spin-off?). That they are making a sequel to the terrible Madagascar says a lot.

    STOP PRESS!
    It's barely been released and already Kung Fu Panda is getting a sequel!
