Sequels are good business, yes?

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment made the announcement this morning. With Friday’s estimated domestic grosses of $197.8 million and an international estimated gross of $206.8 million, Despicable Me 2 reached $404.6 million at the worldwide box office today. Domestically, the studios’ estimates are showing that the 3D toon will cross $200 million late Saturday after just one week in release. ...

We should add that the other animated feature in release hasn't done badly either. To date the Pixar offering has gathered in $414,808,000 at the world box office, $230,408,000 of that in the U.S. and Canada.
