“It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on,” said Lasseter, who specified that only “a minute” will have passed between films. “It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece. You know that at the end of the first movie when he comes up and you see the family dressed as superheroes, well that’s where start this movie.”
Of course this news dashes the hopes of fans who wanted an equal amount of time to have lapsed since the film’s 2004 release. If you look around the internet, you’ll see tons of fan art for adult versions of Dash, Violet and Jack Jack. Perhaps it’s this very fan anticipation that led Disney and Pixar to go in the oppossite direction?
