Reaction [to rumors of a Cars 3] has been negative in the blogosphere. Screencrush, which spotted the story, wrote on Twitter: "Is Pixar planning 'Cars 3' for 2018? Pleasesayno pleasesayno pleasesayno please … ah – crap."
We Got This Covered wrote: "Since Pixar seems hellbent on destroying all the goodwill it had built among fans of quality animated films, they're… getting ready for a road trip back to their grove of money trees with Cars 3."
Why anyone would be distressed escapes me. Pixar has at least two original in the hopper, Walt Disney Animation Studios -- which shares executives and brain trusts -- has three. What's the problem with another sequel, even if it's a sequel that isn't a critical darling?
Diz Co. is in it for the money, not the adulation of Pixar disciples. Renaissance art workshops disappeared several hundred years ago. We are now in the age of the conglomerate. Deal with it.
