Everything is riding on the success of this movie...

This is Pixar's LAST CHANCE...
Inside Out 2 seems to be Pixar's last chance, according to Pete Docter. If this doesn't work, they have to "radically rethink" their business model. Is Disney putting the pressure on Pixar to perform... or else?

Pixar's future success depends on their ability to create original, universally relatable movies and successful sequels, while avoiding predictable and boring content.

00:00 Pixar's future is at stake with the success of "Inside Out 2" as Disney pressures them to avoid another box office disaster, and doubts linger about whether they have learned from past mistakes.  

02:07 Pixar's latest movie is projected to fall short at the box office, but is doing well in pre-sales and is being compared to Toy Story 4, with reviews saying it's a safe and warm continuation of the first movie, and Pixar needs to deliver what people expect from their films.  

04:59 Pixar must return to its reliable and family-friendly storytelling to avoid rethinking its business model, as recent films like "Turning Red" are not resonating with audiences as well as their more universal tales.  

07:08 Pixar's future success depends on the box office performance of their upcoming movies, as recent disappointments have put them at risk of being sacrificed by Disney.  

09:09 Pixar needs to find new big ideas after getting rid of their successful idea team, and they are strategizing to balance sequels with new movies to attract audiences back to theaters.  

11:56 Pixar's future success hinges on creating original movie ideas that stay true to characters and don't pander to the audience, as their recent spin-off "Lightyear" may be their last chance to redeem themselves.

14:31 Pixar must create universally relatable movies, generate original ideas, and revisit past risks to produce enduring classics.  

17:03 Pixar needs to refocus on universal themes and successful sequels to regain their creativity and appeal to a wider audience, or risk resorting to predictable and boring content.
