So I was looking around online, and found out apparently Pixar is planning on rereleasing this movie in theaters, which you guys already have a thread for (maybe I should be posting this there…).
That is awesome, but I can’t help but wonder, what if this means we’re getting Ratatouille 2?
Think about it, all of Pixar’s rereleases have been followed by sequels, and no sequel has premiered without a rerelease (you guys don’t seem to have a thread for The Incredibles rerelease, but it seems to have been announced alongside Ratatouille). The sole exception is Cars, but Cars is the only Pixar film to get a sequel within the span of 10 years (that, and Toy Story 2, but if you want to get technical that didn’t get a rerelease either). A rerelease would have been rather pointless, five years isn’t that long between movies. Ratatouille came out in 2007, and Pixar’s booked through 2017 at least (probably longer), so a sequel would have at least a ten year gap, five years longer than Cars and Cars 2.
Also, A Bug’s Life has had no rerelease, while also being the only (relatively) old Pixar film to not get a sequel, which seems very odd if they’re simply trying to double dip off all their movies. And I guess its lack of rerelease could just be because it’s apparently the lowest grossing Pixar film, but I can’t tell if that means it actually was a box office disappointment or if it’s just the lowest of the successes. Pixar failure and actual failure are two different things.
And I just realized while typing this up that, aside from Cars, Pixar’s going in release order with their films’ follow ups. Toy Story, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, Incredibles, Ratatouille would be next in that order.
I really don’t want a sequel to happen. Someone assure me I’m just being paranoid and stupid. I deserve a cone of shame, right?
