They make sequels to their OWN movies and characters,

If pitof (the man who did Catwoman) make the 4th Indiana Jones, what would you expect as reactions??? (yes i dare compare today's Disney Company to Pitof's Catwoman.. same craps)

You sure have an axe to grind. Nobody's forcing you to watch anything.

A sequel is a sequel no matter who makes it. Dreamworks doing a sequel to Shark Tale would be no better or worse than Fox doing the sequel (although why you would want to make a Shark Tale sequel is beyond me :) ).

Also, this is an animated-news board meaning that this is a family site. Can you stop using bad words (I like debating with people, but someone recently got banned for saying stupid things).

Kinoo, you just beat yourself in this argument! I mean, look at what Warner Bros. is doing to several of their properties. And if the other studios had as many famous properties as Disney and Warner Bros., I have a feeling they would do the same thing too.

Well seeing who's directing it (I loved lion king 1 1/2) and producing it (i loved treasure planet and hunchback), I'm a little more optomistic.

Still sucks not having the right Hamm voice :(

I wonder if Hamm will even have a speaking role. He may just be a character we see in the background, since Ratzenberger won't be voicing him. After all, Hamm did little more than provide sarcastic wit- a feature which could be replaced by giving Mr. Potato Head more lines.

I'm sure Disney can easily find a Ratzenberger sound-alike for the job. They have found sound-alikes for many characters on TV shows. You may say that Ratz had a distiguishable voice...but so did Robin Williams and many other Disney characters. However, they the voice-overs sound fine on the TV shows.

What I meant is that Disney may not want to replace Ratzenberger, just out of respect. I am probably wrong, though. After all, they replaced him in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins. I still don't think Hamm will have a large role in the film, though.

Kind of what I was thinking.

Mark my words...

Disney WILL NEVER MAKE THIS FILM!

Assuming that Mr. Iger wants to demonstrate his independence from Michael Eisner (a joke if I ever heard it -- Iger was SELECTED by Eisner to "replace" him) AND does actually manage to hatch a new deal with Pixar, he'll kill this film to ensure good will with Pixar and Steve Jobs.

As noted on several animation forums, the story guys working on Toy Story 3 for Disney have contracts that only last a few months of THIS year. Honestly, does that sound like Disney is REALLY committed to making this film???

I'm not so sure about that. I mean, they *do* have a director.

I imagine that the film will be made, but it will take quite some time for it to get released.

Estelle Harris was in HotR, Brother Bear, Teachers Pet, and about 100 other Disney movies
*useless trivia*--She was also in Dick Tracy (1990) where she played Tess Trueheart's mom. :wink:

Who did she play in TS again?


Whoops--correction!

That was Estelle Parsons. (my mistake) :oops:

Personally I'd much rather see TS 3 come from Pixar, of course. They're the only ones who truly have a good grasp on these characters. But if Disney did make this film, I'd see it anyway--who knows--maybe they'll even improve on it to a degree. There's really no way to know.

Also, wouldn't it be REALLY WEIRD if TS 3 (made by only Disney) was up against Cars??? :shock: :roll:
Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?

I think so, Brain, but if we didn’t have ears, wouldn’t we sort of look like weasels?

And yes, Wendy's Jane, The Secret Lab was shut down a couple of years ago. Disney's new Pixar-rip-off plant is called The Sequel Lab...
Or "Pixarn't" :wink:

Having a director really doesn't mean anything. A bunch of movies die in pre-production or get shelved for a variety of reasons.

Believe me, if Disney DOES negotiate a new deal with Pixar to distribute Pixar movies, the new head of Disney WILL kill Toy Story 3 to keep good will with Pixar.

TS3 is a hedge-bet by Disney in case they do lose Pixar... This film will not go forward if the deal with Pixar is renegotiated.
