Earlier this week, an interview with Mark Andrews was posted on the Scotsman.com site discussing a Brave sequel as well as a new original project. Although the article certainly isn't a stating that the project is "green lighted", it's nice to hear the reminiscent quality of the Brave project in Mark's words - “If we got the right story it would be fun to get the gang back together again, add a few more new characters and find out what other Scottish talents are out there that might want to do a animated film".
However, Andrews also mentioned, “I don’t know if there will be another one. We never make a film at Pixar to have a sequel. It is always nice when you do and we kind of have a philosophy that if we find the right story then we will". Towards the end of the interview Andrews confirms (again) that he is working on a new and original project - which he did mention after the Golden Globe win for Brave - “I am currently working on another film, which is original and is being written and directed by me, but that’s all I can say about that".
We're excited to see Andrews' direction and point of view on his upcoming project - and while this new original film is underway, let's not get too excited about a Brave sequel - it sounds like that's a pretty slim chance (although the Scotsman article over-zealously states, "Sequel to Disney•Pixar's Brave on the cards").
