Pixar Reportedly Focusing Only On Original Films After 'Toy Story 4' & Other Recent Sequels

  • Since 2016, Pixar has released a total of five films.
  • Of those five films, only one, “Coco,” is an original property not tied to a previous Pixar brand.
  • Other films, such as “Finding Dory,” “Cars 3,” “Incredibles 2,” and the aforementioned “Toy Story 4,” are sequels to established franchises.
  • Though those films have been hugely successful, both creatively and financially, there are many that wonder if Pixar has moved away from what made the brand so great in the first place – the creativity.
  • In the report, it is revealed that after the upcoming “Toy Story 4,” which arrives June 21, Pixar is going to be focusing solely on new, original projects and not sequels, led by new boss Pete Docter.
  • “It’s all original films after this one right now.”
  • Even with Lasseter receiving a “Story by” credit for “Toy Story 4,” along with a whopping seven other writers, it appears that the future of Pixar begins now.
