Not sure how I feel about this.
Yeah, I know exactly how I feel about it: another safe sequel for PIXAR. Everyone expected to see how Jack Jack looks now that he's grown up... but wait a minute, he's the same, they haven't moved on at all. Sucks, until proven otherwise, even with Bird on board. Sure, one could say how Monster University played against the expectations by going backwards in time but the final product was far from the quality of the original.
Why not set the sequel 20 years into the future (I know the answer: $$$)? I'd like to see a family in an animated film where everyone is an adult and their thoughts and outlook have changed significantly because that might imply some progression for the characters.
For once I agree with you but won't complain more since at least we're getting this and there's a slim chance it's Toy Story 3, rather than Dory. Wouldn't mind a Cars 3/Monsters University sized package at all.
