“I feel like I’m among the VERY select few who actually likes “Bambi 2.”
Not only do I like it, but I believe it fills in that gap in the first
film beautifully. If there’s one thing to NOT like about the first film,
it’s that jarring leap from Bambi’s mother’s death to “Let’s Sing a Gay
Little Spring Song.” But the sequel/mid-quel slows the pace, shows the
steps Bambi and his father take to healing from their loss, and I simply
adore it. Besides, what’s not to love about Patrick Stewart’s voice?”
When Walt Disney originally said this, he was *literally* referring to not trying to top the success of the original ‘Three Little Pigs’ short with another short starring the
Three Little Pigs.
Later in life, Walt (and/or his publicists and biographers) would use this same quote to describe why he didn’t make sequels to his features or particularly care about the theme park part of his proposed E.P.C.O.T. project.
It was basically shorthand for: BE ORIGINAL! BE CREATIVE!
Fast-forward to today, and Disney/Pixar/Marvel/Lucasfilm are pumping out seemingly nothing but sequels and remakes. And they’re making billions doing it!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released on April 4th, 2014 by Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Entertainment as the sequel for the Captain America trilogy and the ninth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With a story combining 1970s conspiracy fiction and Ed Brubaker’s Winter Soldier comic book arc, the film became one of Marvel’s most critically acclaimed and well-received films. The film was nominated for Best Visual Effects at the 87th Academy Awards and actor Chris Evans won Favorite Action Movie Star at the 41st People’s Choice Awards.
Happy Birthday, Captain America: The Winter Soldier!
When I got my job at Disney Animation in the Talent Development program it was 2012 and Wreck-it Ralph was just being finished. I was sooooo disappointed that I would never get to work with those characters, I loved that movie. In my first 3 months of training, we were allowed to use either Penelope or Ralph for our assignments, here is my pantomime of Ralph.
Did I mention that I’ll be rolling onto the Wreck-it Ralph sequel after Moana?! It just got announced! SO EXCITED!!!!
There’s a saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
And this picture definitely delivers on that.
This one picture, gave me an idea.
To give you amazing people my idea on how to make the Zootopia sequel, zoo-tacular XD!
THIS IS MY OPINION!!!
IF YOU HAVE A BETTER IDEA, THEN I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR IT :D!
Anyway guys, my idea has the same type of plot, but I have other ideas to turn it around, and make it more interesting.
So lets get on with the idea, shall we?!
Here we go then!
So this picture made me think.
Of this idea I had in mind.
But, what is the story?
I think that the key to making a great story is inspiration.
Many great filmmakers have been inspired by many things throughout their lives, that made them make great movies.
Zootopia’s film directors were inspired by the movie, “Chinatown”, this movie is basically a kids version of, “Chinatown”!
So I think, that the next sequel should be inspired by a movie.
Not just a movie, a sequel.
One of the best sequels of all time!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Again! My opinion!
I am not saying that Zootopia 2 should be exactly like this Cap movie, but it should elements from that Marvel movie and be incorporated into the next Zootopia film!
Think about it.
This would be a huge inspiration into making a film from Disney Animation!
Judy Hopps has some important similarities to Steve Rogers!
They are both optimistic.
Have good fighting skills, Judy is a cop, Steve is a super soldier.
Both represent the good guys.
Are proud of doing what they do.
And the two made big mistakes.
Judy made a mistake of being offensive to Nick at the press conference.
In which Judy lost Nick as a friend.
And Steve failed to save his friend Bucky, losing his friend. Which transferred to years later, Bucky being a Hydra assassin, and Steve failed to tell him that he’s on the wrong side.
Steve even said, “Please, don’t do this.”
So the two have been through very harsh times in their lives.
Anyway, back to the idea!
What if Zootopia 2 was a undercover spy, mystery action film?
The original genre of Zootopia was to be a spy film like James Bond, so make the sequel an undercover James Bond type film, and it would be a great idea to make this sequel different and unique.
It can also be open to being a funny undercover spy story, it could play some clever jokes on maybe… Spy movies XD!
And my villain idea would be having a huge corporation giving predators and prey a vaccine that will tamper their heads! It is almost like savage, it’s just that prey and preds don’t go fully under controlled.
Thanks to @theycallmekipper for that vaccine idea, she’s very talented and awesome! Check her out!
And the villain could be either a newcomer, joining the ZPD, turning out to be an undercover corporation head trying to take over Zootopia. Doing things similar to Bellweather, but this guy, don’t know the name, wants to separate preds and prey because he just simply doesn’t think its natural for the two to get together.
Or a more personal villain, like Nick’s dad. Because he’s sick and tired of other animals before throwing shit at him like he’s a wall.
This could lead to the inter-species romance subplot. All starts with the corporation trying to separate preds and prey, and half of Zootopia that they don’t like change, ignoring Judy’s speech from the first movie.
And everything just connects, I really think this could work.
“I used to wish Disney would make a sequel to ‘Treasure Planet’. But
after reading the official plot of the cancelled 'Treasure Planet 2’ and
seeing concept art, I’m glad they never went through with it.”
Many people here have expressed misgivings about the BH7 rumours about how Tadashi survived and might return in a sequel etc. While I can see where they’re coming from, I still feel that it’s feasible for such a possibility to occur in due time.
I’m all for Tadashi coming back. Many argue that it “ ruins the original film’s message”, but we’re all neglecting that there can be other more messages that can be conveyed as well by bringing him back, to name a few example, hope, rebirth and being optimistic, second chances etc. It doesn’t mean that the moral of the original story.Such values can never be lost even if Tadashi is brought back. Such an argument is akin to saying that your lose your old friends after meeting new ones, or that you’ll forget the taste of bitter medicine after you’ve eaten something sweet. Once a lesson is learnt, it stays etched permanently into one’s upbringing and values, and cannot be easily erased.
Another issue I would like to address is some are saying that the article is “inaccurate” and probably fake, posted by some desperate fans. I would like to highlight that the article mentions that it is a RUMOUR, and a THEORY, meaning to say that it’s not completely 100% true. That is to say, the article is a hypothesis and hence, flawed to say that it is inaccurate. It goes to show however, that such a chance is HIGHLY likely (note the term HIGHLY and not COMPLETELY/ABSOLUTELY/UNMISTAKABLY), and I personally will not be surprised if a predictions turns out to be true, seeing how the film is part Marvel, a franchise known for reviving characters; and that the original comics does indeed has Sunfire as major character and Tadashi is so far the most viable of the characters to play that role. The official Japanese manga also depicts a plot that has a potential of Tadashi surviving. Not to mention, that Disney has a history of developing characters in sequels that seemed unlikely to be worked on ( think Anastasia from Cinderella), as well as many consumers, i.e fans, even the voice actors themselves expressed interest in seeing Tadashi return. In all, I have high hopes for this happening and wouldn’t downplay the idea too soon.
“I’ve always wondered if the princess face characters are required to know the canon from the Disney sequels as well. I’ve always wanted to ask Ariel how Melody is doing, but I don’t want to embarrass the actress or get her in trouble if she doesn’t know what I’m talking about.”
I went and saw Muppets Most Wanted today and it was soooo good. The music was amazing and the cameos were pretty good. But it made me so mad the the title wasn’t “The Muppets… Again!”. It was so perfect!!!
It’s of-f-f-f-f-icial: “Frozen 2” is in development at Walt Disney Animation Studios with directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee and producer Peter Del Vecho, the Oscar-winning filmmaking team behind “Frozen.”
The news was announced at Disney’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders this morning by Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company; John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios; and actor Josh Gad, who provides the voice of Olaf from “Frozen.” A release date and production details are on ice for now.
“I really hope they do not make Elsa a lesbian in Frozen 2. I’m totally
fine with a gay character but one with his own movie. Where the
character doesn’t need to justify himself. It has be normal in the film.”
“Considering that Disney is re-releasing the Lion King sequels after having already done that a couple of years ago, I am confused about there not having been a re-release of the Aladdin sequels. They are an important part of Disney’s history (as they were some of the first direct to video sequels) and King of Thieves is one of my favorite movies.”
