Den of Geek inquires:
Will Pixar regret making Up
... [T]he problem Up faces is that the wrong people seem to be getting excited about the film. Given that Pixar has invested around $200m in the movie, it has little choice but to target a mass market family audience to bring that money back in. And the truth is that it's set itself its hardest sell to date, with a film that could possibly find itself astounding critics (again), but leaving the people who Pixar is relying on to recoup its investment cold.
So here's the answer.
Pixar will never regret making their new movie.
The Disney Co., however, might grind its teeth and have second-thoughts for the next eight quarters. But DizCo will never admit it, for that would not be a politically advantageous thing to do.
