1. AFRICA FTW!!!!!

Considering the last African-themed animated blockbuster was The Lion King, I think it's time to think about another one featuring the humans this time. Kirikou is the best contemporary example I can think of, but it's more popular in France and Europe than internationally, so I'd love to see another motion-picture event of the likes of TLK.

As for other cultures, I'd be quite interested in them doing something in New Zealand myself- before the Europeans came (or just after) or set it in the 60s when the Maori had a revival.

Or the prisoners in Australia when it was used for that purpose.

It continues to amaze me why Australia or New Zealand hasn't done an indigenous animated film yet. Oz has made great fantasy films like Happy Feet and the upcoming Legend of the Guardians, and I've just discovered an 80s gem from NZ called Footrot Flats.

So why hasn't anyone made an indigenous animated film yet? It's not like there's a lack of folk tales to tell, like the Rainbow Serpent who singlehandedly made the Earth, or Kupe, the explorer who discovered Aotearoa (after murdering his cousin and stealing his wife! ;)). Instead, the Aussies and Kiwis are content telling stories of dancing penguins and Tolkienesque-wars. :roll:

I'd like to see something that takes place in the land which I live, The Netherlands.

To show the world we do more than walk around on clogs all day and live in windmills... :/ Yay for stereotypes... not...

perhaps about Amsterdam? It's a beautiful city if you ignore the... various things I cannot mention on a e-rated forum...

Perhaps with pigeons? There's a lot of them here in Holland and they seem to be fun to animate.

The queen's allowed to be in it, though. And a few beefeaters, too. And some fish and chips. I like fish and chips.


Well, part of Cars 2 will be set in England! That will be exciting to see.

Even tho i'm English i'd be happy for all of Pixar's movies to be set in and around USA (or maybe Canada on odd occasion) because that country is just AWESOME.

Other countries, Mexico looks nice, i like they're culture with the big hats they have etc, that would be nice, and also the eastern European countries' cultures :)

*Gasp* You mean you don't? :P Then again, everyone still lives in trees in Malaysia, just so you know... ;)
Oh, I've been on a tour to Amsterdam before with my family. I remember there were a lot of bicycles and canals. And yes, I did see the 'coffee houses', and walked around De Wallen. *Borat voice* Is niiiice... I like! :)

I'd love to see Eastern Europe and Scandinavian cultures explored. What could be cooler than Slavs and Vikings?

I'm glad Pixar is the most progressive studio in terms of ethnic representation... I can't wait to see what they do with Scottish culture in 'Brave'!

This is Disney, wut I want a Spanish princess, because that's the only chance of a princess with a red/orange dress, and my Spanish class is very inspiring.
