'Finding Nemo 2' Coming In 2016, 'Toy Story 4' A Possibility
Finding Nemo: Fish Out Of Water?
Pixar is dropping movie sequels almost as fast as fans can count. Just days after announcing a prequel to Monsters Inc., rumors are flying that the animation studio is set to begin work on Finding Nemo 2 AND Toy Story 4.
In 2003 we left little Nemo safe in the arms of his clown fish father (voiced by Albert Brooks), and all was well under the sea. But now the adventure continues.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Pixar is producing a sequel with director Andrew Stanton, with a projected release date sometime in 2016. Tv writer Victoria Strouse will pen the script while Lindsey Collins is set to produce.
Unfortunately Pixar has yet to confirm the project, and Stanton was less than helpful in a tweet on Wednesday.
"Didn't you all learn from Chicken Little? Everyone calm down. Don't believe everything you read," he wrote. "Nothing to see here now. #skyisnotfalling."
While talk of a Nemo reunion heats up, there are also whispers running rampant of yet another Toy Story. Some speculators point to a year-old interview with Tom Hanks in which the actor claimed Pixar is already at work on the fourth entry in the franchise.
Then again, others think Toy Story 3 wrapped it all up nicely with Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the gang finding a new home while their owner, Andy, heads off to college.
So while we wait for word from somebody who knows what they're talking about, check out a trailer for Pixar's upcoming Monsters University.
