    Is there a need for a Nemo 2

    @ROFLitschristian I agree, Nemo does not need a sequel. It is a wonderful film just the way it is.

    @skywise Haha, that is kind of funny. I just don't want this to be The Hangover of Pixar.

    @ROFLitschristian i just watched nemo again the other day and sort of laughed at the end when Marlin watches as Nemo flies on the back of Mr. Ray right back to the exact same area where nemo was lost in the first place.

    Toy Story 3 is the highest grossing Pixar film. Not finding Nemo. And how the f*ck will Nemo get lost again?

    @skywise My overall problem and the reason I thumb down any Finding Nemo 2 article is merely for the question, WHY?! What could they possibly do with another Finding Nemo title? It just aggravates me!

    @bawnian-dexeus I still dont like the idea of Pixar milking every great movie its made but since that is what they are hell bend on doing I guess I will have to learn to say f*ck it. Finding Nemo is still my fav animated film of all time so FN2 would not be as disheartening as say Cars 3 and Planes 2.

    1. I meant the next Toy Story series they want to make
    2. I mean that their creative ideas like TS, Incredibles, Nemo, etc. stopped after Up

    @bawnian-dexeus Saying Pixar stopped making good films after Up is so far wrong I can't even begin to explain. How on earth was Toy Story 3 a "slap to the face" to anyone? The movie excelled in just about every category it fell under. It's was a sequel, one that wasn't 100% unnecessary, that laid out everything on the table and gave Toy Story the perfect send off. It was a great flick for kids without forgetting that it's target audience was really the group of people who grew up with Toy Story.

    Great, I hope she chooses to do it. Loved her in the first one, which is by far the best Pixar movie ever. I am very much hoping Thomas Newman is back on board too! As long as they get everyone back who worked on the first, and come up with a interesting and original idea, they will have solid gold.

    @narrator Knowing Pixar, Cars 3 is a possibility due to sales of merchandise.

    @ROFLitschristian Ouch

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Ha!

    I think it stopped after Up. Granted, we go two new ideas being developed (inception and dinos + humans in the same modern era). Cars 2 wasn't needed, but what the hell, the kids loved it. Monster's Inc should have gone forward, but no, we're getting a freaking prequel and there goes Boo :'(. Like many of you I too am waiting for an Incredibles sequel that is long overdo, a new Toy Story which really, is a slap in the face to my generation and as for Nemo, well, it better be a story beyond getting lost in the sea

    Point, @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx.

    While that moniker might suit Cars better in terms of actual milking, I think Cars one would had to have been good in the first place like the first Hangover to even qualify, which it clearly wasn't. Lol.

    But seriously, as my friend said, they already are re-releasing Finding Nemo in 3D... does the kid not f*cking learn?! I mean, I know he's retarded, but how many times can he get lost, 3D or not, and how many times can we care?

    @dan1, @skywise - It's just ridiculous. Was UP their last huzzah? Now we have Finding Nemo 2 and Monsters Inc. 2, we've had Cars 2 (and god forbid we get 3), and we've had three Toy Story's (while good, they were unnecessary). To quote the late Heath, "What happened [to Pixar]? Did your balls drop off?"

    @dan1 I wish the people at Pixar would go back to the drawing board and come up with some new ideas but it seems that they are hell bent on milking their properties.

    Maybe the main focus of the film will be on her character since she does have short term memory loss haha. I definitely wouldn't mind that

    She'll do it. She's constantly saying on her show how badly she wants to do it and always jokes about Pixar not doing a sequel yet. She'd be the first to sign on.

    @skywise There is no point in doing the movie with or without her.

    First Cars 2 (a sequel that should never have happened before Incredibles 2), now Finding Nemo 2... don't do it, Ellen...
