Pixar original films

In a welcome case of “hey, maybe Hollywood does listen to its audience,” Pixar has finally admitted that they plan to “significantly scale back its production of sequels.” In an interview with BuzzFeed, Pixar Animation Studios President Ed Catmull, the studio head shares the obvious: “For artistic reasons…it’s really important that we do an original film a year.” Well, yes, Ed, and that’s what fans of the animation house have always loved about Pixar’s features – an adherence to originality and creativity that, for a long time, was not present in most other animated outings. And, yes, that’s what we all want more of (and soon). When it comes to the studio’s sequel and prequels, Catmull says, “Every once in a while, we get a film where we want or people want to see something continuing in that world — which is the rationale behind the sequel. They want those characters, which means we were successful with them. But if you keep doing that, then you aren’t doing original films.” In short, Catmull promises (albeit in a bit of a hedged manner) that “we’re going to have an original film every year, then every other year have a sequel to something…That’s the rough idea.”
