'Finding Nemo' director Andrew Stanton will be returning for 'Finding Nemo 2', the original film won an Oscar so the latest adventure of the little clownfish is much anticipated, making it encouraging that the first movie's director is back on board.
One might suggest that the film maker is returning to the calmer waters of his comfort zone after his disasterous flop 'John Carter', and it's rather incredible that Disney are ready to employ him again after costing them an estimated $200m on 'John Carter'.
However 'Finding Nemo 2' is no doubt seen as a cash cow for Disney, who have begun to take advantage of Pixar's acclaimed back catalogue to cash in with sequels and 3D versions. 'Finding Nemo 3D' is already in the works. 'Toy Story 3' and 'Cars 2' have already hit screens, with a 'Monsters, Inc.' prequel on the way.
No doubt fans care little for Disney's lack of originallity and will just be happy to see Nemo, Marlin and company back on screen.
However Disney's first production that wasn't already a sequel or wasn't already on the books before taking over Pixar, 'Brave' received lukewarm reviews, especially compared to previous films like 'Up' and 'Toy Story'.
Yet with Stanton's original movie making $867m and him being behind the universally acclaimed 'Wall-E', Disney have given him another chance to direct animation again.
