Star Wars, Pixar sequels & live-action Little Mermaid?

Disney CEO Bob Iger has revealed some news on upcoming Disney projects, including sequels to two of Pixar’s bigger hits, as well as some rare official news on the much-anticipated Star Wars Episode VII.

Speaking at the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting in Portland, Oregon, Igor confirmed that Pixar are working on Cars 3 and The Incredibles 2. Considering Cars – so far including the first film and it’s sequel, as well as spin-off Planes and an upcoming sequel to that – is a billion dollar franchise, it’s little surprise a third outing is in the works. The Incredibles 2, however, is a little more of a surprise considering it’s been 14 years since the original. Of course the fact that the original made $631million is probably the reason we will now have a sequel.

Shortly after the announcement the official Pixar Twitter page confirmed the news themselves;

 

 

The next projects on Pixar’s slate is Inside Out in 2015, The Good Dinosaur later that year, and Finding Dory – another sequel – in 2016.

Iger also revealed a little bit of news about the much-hyped Star Wars Episode VII. News about the project has been few and far between, but the little tidbit that has come out is that Episode VII will be set 30 years after Return of the Jedi, and will see the return of R2D2 as well as “a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces”.

Original stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher have long been linked with a return to the franchise. The film will be released on 18 December 2015.

Away from shareholders meeting news, but staying with classic Disney films, Deadline are reporting that a live-action version of The Little Mermaid is in the pipeline.

Sofia Coppolla is in negotiations to direct the film, of which nothing is known at this point. The website does state that apparently the intention is to move quickly with the movie.
