Pixar to Focus on Originals

In a win for fans of original material and just plain good storytelling everywhere, Pixar has announced that they will release an original movie every year, and only release a prequel or sequel once every other year from now on (or at least until 2017). Pixar President Ed Catmull made the announcement during a Buzzfeed interview. Thank goodness. I certainly don't begrudge them doing continuations on past stories, but they won't be able to generate those continuations without a solid, original idea to base them off of. The funds they receive from these continuations should help fun the original ideas, leading to a nice, positive cycle of great movies for us all to enjoy!

Of course, Disney just put out Planes and the princess in Frozen looks like an even doe-y-ier eyed twin of Rapunzel from Tangled, so let's not get our hopes up too high yet!
