Get Ready For Finding Nemo 2… And 3?

Toy Story 3 is in cinemas now, Cars 2 is just around the bend, Monsters Inc. 2 is… um… hiding under the bed, and we’ve been talking a lot about Planes here this last couple of weeks – but is that where the Pixar sequels and spin-offs end? At least for now, surely?

No. Apparently not.

Disney’s attorneys have, according to Jim Hill, just registered both .org and .net domains for FINDINGNEMO2 and FINDINGNEMO3. That won’t be popular.

These may have been preemptive purchases, made to keep the domains out of the hands of squatters, and not necessarily because the films are gearing up for production – but then, the question is “Why now?”

I did a Who Is lookup on the .com variant and can see that it’s been owned by one client since 2000, and the last action taken on it was on July 15th, not so long ago… That feels like a clue, but I don’t really know what it tells us.

To lose little Nemo once, Pixar, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose him three times looks like carelessness. Or, to the cynics, something of a money grab.

Personally, I’d quite like to see Nemo, Marlin, and Dory again.
