Man, this has been a loooong post. I'm not trying to be a Negative Nancy so much as I am having a critical eye, but what's with some of their new (reputed, that is) director choices? Cars, while a pretty good flick, is my least favorite Pixar film of them all, and its sequel is being directed by a producer with apparently no experience aside from a short featurette on the Ratatouille DVD (which didn't have much of a story, so I have trouble applying the style to a full-length feature). If he's the next great director at Pixar, then awesome! But I can't help but be doubtful, you know? Also, I hear that Lasseter is now co-director of that film. Interesting, verrrry interesting.

I believe Pete Docter was handling the english dub of Howl's Moving Castle (I think), so that's what took him so long with Up.

And with Cars 2, I'm equally worried, for the reasons you stated and the fact that Larry the cable guy has alluded to it being in the same vein as the Mater shorts, which I can't see as a great feature film.

I don't think we have to really worry about that, we still have geniuses like Stanton, Bird, and Docter.

Don't forget Unkrich!!!

I don't know how they'll top Toy Story 3, though. But Pixar will continue to have long-lived success. I don't see it ending anywhere soon. Only with newt did I see a breaking point.

I hadn't seen TS3 yet at the time, but now that I've seen it, he's on the list of geniuses too. :)

Not really sure what you mean by "better". I mean, that really subjective because some people really liked Cars while others thought that the first Toy Story was the best film. I can't actually think of how any of their films can be considered superior to another, because that would mean the other film was somehow more inferior. All PIXAR's films are perfect.

Now if you are going by ratings solely, then I'd have have to say that they'd probably stay the same. The Pixar Method is so infused within every single person in that building that I don't see how it could possibly deviate any less than amazing.
