WALL-E writer/director Andrew Stanton told MTV that a WALL-E 2 probably won’t be happening.
“Personally, I never consider sequels,” WALL-E writer/director Andrew Stanton told MTV News. “I think that takes a lot of hubris to think that your idea is going to live on and on, and I always love the idea of something just being contained and done.” But didn’t Stanton co-write the screenplay for “Toy Story 2”? Maybe there’s a chance someday for a second go at WALL-E?
Pressed if he had any ideas in mind for the characters in the animated feature, Stanton was blunt: “Not for me, no.”
“We work on these things for so long,” he explained, “that we have a hard time simply thinking that the [first] film is ever going to be done. I’m not against sequels, and I’ve certainly experienced personally and seen secondhand great sequels, but I don’t go in with that intent.”
WALL-E brought in a huge $532 million worldwide when it was released last year, so a second film would probably be a hit. However, it is good to see people thinking creatively, and not just seeing $$$ signs.
Do you want to see a WALL-E 2 back on Earth?
