Fantastic! 2 weeks is a long time for me, so the less wait the better.

Aw, man! :( That stinks. I don't really mind the Beauty and the Beast thing, but I'm sad about Newt.

I never really cared about Beauty and the Beast in 3D. It just seemed pointless to re-release this movie in theaters in the first place, so I'm not really bitter over that.

Newt on the other hand, I AM bitter over. I was so disappointed when I heard it was cancelled, especially since it was one of the upcoming movies I was really looking forward to seeing. :\ And I actually feel kind of disappointed at Pixar right now. At this point, Brave is their only original film to look forward to, and I'm actually really scared that Pixar might be heading towards the wrong direction by making all these sequels.

And also, the thing with title changes is that they don't really have a major impact on the actual film anyways. Disney's The Frog Princess was changed to The Princess and the Frog over some controversial race issue, and people criticized and complained about that change because it was an obvious attempt to avoid sounding racist. Cut to after the film release, and now, people accept it and nobody has a problem with it anymore. The same thing will happen with Brave (and Tangled too even).

Yeah, I'm a bit sad too because they announced it and then I got my hopes up. Now I'll always wonder what it would of been about.

But in the long run, I'm glad the cancelled it. Because they must of cancelled it because it wasn't going in the right direction, and it's good that they cut the movie when it was a bud. I'd rather them shelve it than release a bad movie.

However delighted I may be with the release of Monsters Inc 2, I am very disappointed with the shelving of Newt. Back in 2008 when they first announced the release of those films, I remember being being more intrigued by Newt than that of Brave. Although some may say it is similar to Wall-E; with both being the lasts of their kind, Newt has more of a meaning since we now are living at a age where many species are endangered or rapidly going extinct. A story like Newt being told would have made the masses conscious of our effect, as species, is having to animals that inhabit this world with us. It would have been among Wall-E and Finding Nemo (referring to the fishing) as films that sent serious messages about our way of living.
'
Anyways the fact that we are getting 3 sequels in the space of 3 years is making me doubtful Pixar's future in general. Obviously they will continue to make masterpieces, but sequels like this may signify that they are running out of ideas to story tell, which would astound the audience just like their previous films. Whatever their reasons may be to release the two upcoming sequels, Pixar just seem to be following Dreamworks path or a path which Disney is directing, so they could make profits from Pixar's franchises. I just hope their intentions is to continue the story of previous films and knowing Pixar, I know they won't disappoint. I just would have preferred Pixar spacing out their sequels over the decade than having them being released in the space of 3 years.

I think someone should interview the Pixarians and write a book about this now lost film, like what they did when Stanley Kubrik died. I would totally buy a non-fiction Newt book if Pixar ever offered to reveal the whole story.

Lee Unkrich had this to say about both Brave and Mosnters, Inc. 2 in a recent interview:

What is Brave, and how do you feel having your first female director attached will change what we've seen from Pixar in the past?

Lee Unkrich: I don't know exactly what has been announced about it. I think we've revealed that the film takes place in Scotland. It's a princess movie, but it's a very different kind of princess movie from what you'd see coming out from Disney feature animation. It is a very gritty adventure. As I've said, Brenda Chapman is at the helm of it. Pixar has always been very male-heavy. In terms of the lead creatives on these movies. We've been wanting to change that for a long time. We've been wanting to get more female voices higher up. We've been working with Brenda Chapman for quite a while. She is super talented. She was one of the directors of The Prince of Egypt, and she worked on the story for The Lion King. She has been with us for a number of years now. She worked on Cars with John Lasseter. She has been working on Brave for many years now. It's looking really great. It has a couple of really great female leads. It brings a different energy to our movies. It's the same great storytelling and characters. But it's a new flavor, and it gets everything in there in a different way than we've seen before.

What about the story for Monsters, Inc. 2? The first story was really important to a lot of people, in terms of single parenting and adoption, especially with single males. Are you going to continue to play with those themes?
Lee Unkrich: I don't know. We haven't announced anything about the storyline for Monsters, Inc. 2, so I can't really speak to anything. I know this sounds corny, but people love Monsters, and if they do, they are going to certainly enjoy this film. I just can't talk to you about the story yet.

Thanks for posting that, love70ways. Interesting what he said about Brave and Pixar being male-heavy in the past- it's going to be great seeing what more of a female touch will bring to Pixar. And a shame that nothing more was revealed about Monsters, Inc. 2!

No problem lizardgirl.

I know we will have to wait a while, but I am very excited to find out more about Monsters Inc. 2.

Do we even know if it the main characters are Mike and Sulley? Perhaps they play only a small role in the sequel or aren't even in the film at all.

Hmm, an interesing idea, love70ways, though a lot of people love Mike and Sulley and with them being so core to the original, I can't imagine they'd be discarded entirely for the sequel. I am curious as to what the new characters (if any) will be like, though.

That is interesting, Sean. I hope they are in it, even if it isn't for much, But I'm still excited for new characters. Maybe a couple main ones, like how Jessie was introduced.
