I would be cynical, but Dory was the best thing about Finding Nemo and I think she deserves her own movie.

I just hope this is the last sequel for a while. Just please no Cars 3, Toy Story 4 or Pixar's Monster Babies. It's the Incredibles that people want to see. This all depends on Brad Bird and when he gets around to thinking up an idea for a sequel.

Lol. Cars 3 is Planes.

The film needed work, I agree... it just seems like everyone loves to shovel hate on that film, and by extension Pixar for making 2 films in a row that aren't extremely artistic and preachy. Especially when Sony animation's best film (Hotel Transylvania) was mediocre, and Dreamworks completely slid off back to their Sharktale roots with Turbo (which can't possibly be good no matter what). And Dino Time exists. It didn't get into theaters, but it exists. They had a 2 film slump, and even then, those 2 films are hardly terrible by comparison. They're an A student's B- in a room of D's at best. It needed work, it didn't deserve the Oscar, but it certainly doesn't deserve half the crap it gets. 25%-40% maybe... of course, Happy Feet won the same award. I don't see why that wasn't the big "The Acadamy doesn't know what it's doing" moment.

Think of it this way. Had Mereda been a talking blender in a world inhabited only by appliances and the film had a strong anti-consumerist message, that's what people would expect from Pixar. Their cute thing that shouldn't talk/exist learning a lesson is Disney's Princess film. They get flack for doing them, but bigger flack for not doing them.

And meanwhile, Sont makes a sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and not only is no one complaining, everyone's dang happy about it.

I guess what I'm saying is, we're getting to an overly critical situation where we look at everything under a microscope and can't enjoy anything. Dark Knight Rise was apparently "Horrible" even though it didn't feature a watered down Richard Pryor, a woman randomly turning into a robot for no good reason, or... I'll stop the joke right there. Every third super hero movie before that sucked. And Fourth ones are the Suck Event Horizon. We love to punish grand things that don't meet our Fan-ficy expectations, and say that directors and studios that did great stuff with one exception have the bast of their glory days behind them. And there's a whole, big fat world of suck out there. Like a giant world of people who make a career out of being so incredibly bad that when they improve slightly, that's the greatest thing in the world. I mean, Brave may not have lived up to some expectation, but they didn't make Marmaduke, and they certainly aren't behind the "Lame Parody Movie of the Year" franchise. Brave wasn't a great film by their standards... Transformers 3 was a great film by Bay's standards. Discrepancy? You bet.

John (BobthePizzaBoy) and I had a little game where we would come up with titles for Pixar sequels. I came up with Finding Nemo's Daughter.

So, instead of that, we're getting Finding Nemo's Crazy Aunt.

Is this based on the comic book released a couple of years ago?

You've got to be kidding me. I saw something like this coming....This is just ridiculous.
