Yay Little Mermaid is back along with Toy Story,
But someone explain why Peter Pan is back, The first film was lame and kinda peadophilic (if thats a word). A boy who "never grew up" goes in at night stealing children who don't want to grow up as well

I don't know, it's sounds great to me. *shrug* Most Disney movies can seem creepy if you think about them too much. If you look at a children's story with a cynical adult mindset, you can find subtext all over the place.

Disney seems to have a fetish with sequels lately. (DCOM, I mean. They're starting the sequel trend with DCOMs.)
A lil OT: I'm probably the only one who's bothered by this, but at the end of the Hocus Pocus commercial, I hate how they just HAD to add that it's the same director of High School Musical. C'mon, do they think kids won't want to watch it if they don't mention a super-popular movie? They've been showing that same commercial for years and now they tainted it. ;_;

Poor Ariel! I actually didn't mind the sequal and I LOVED the series... but... really, prequal when the series already is one?! Why?
Maybe if they show Ariel as much younger, and showing her mother! :D And probably how she died too.;_; And maybe even show how Ariel became so interested in humans. If it doesn't involve any of that, I don't think I'll be as interested.

Saw III opened to huge numbers this past weekend. It earned $33.6 million in its opening weekend, which is more than what Saw II and the original Saw earning in their respective opening weekends.

Saw IV has been announced in production for 2007. And rumor has it that Saw V is also in production for 2008.

An American Tale: Fiveal Goes West was a good sequel though. Although that was back when (most) companies made sequels because they had a good idea for a story and not because they wanted to pay for their fancy cars and summer houses.

The only ones I could possibly be looking forward to there are HP5 and Sin City 2....wait, does the latter have Devon Aoki?

Order of the Phoenix is my favorite book in the series, so that sequel is more than okay.

Ugh, Don Bluth sequels are the worst. The originals which Don Bluth created are all great, but the sequels to his movies are almost always reduced to standard cartoon fare.

shrek 3?! it had better be as good as the first 2, or im going to cry.

and what the hell is "are we done yet"? there couldn't possibly be a sequal to that movie.

Saw I, II, & III cost just over $15 mill to make combined. So far, they've earned almost a combined total of $300 million globally at the box office and Saw III just came out last week.

Doesn't take much of a genius to realize they'll milk the franchise as much as possible.
28th: Mr. Bean's Holiday

~December~

21st: Alien vs. Predator: Survival of the Fittest
21st : National Treasure 2
USO DAAAA!!!

I thought all of these bombed.

Then again, they made Baby Geniuses 2 and are making a Baby Geniuses 3 despite both 1 and 2 bombing.

I could've sworn National Treasure did pretty good at the box office. I could be remembering wrong, though, since it got a lot of hype.
