Pixar Gave A Vague Hint

While A Bug’s Life fans have been waiting for an official announcement, Pixar’s post stunned everyone. Back in 2018, Pixar shared a picture of Princess Dot looking down from a petal. Although the studio didn’t give a proper explanation, many doubted that it could be a hint at something more. Even the post captioned: “Try a new perspective” made everyone believe Pixar hinted at A Bug’s Life 2. Soon after the post, many fans started questioning whether A Bug’s Life 2 is on the cards. However, Pixar never confirmed it, and now it’s been five years, and the studio has yet to drop any updates regarding its sequel.

Is A Bug’s Life 2 In The Production Stage?

While Pixar hasn’t confirmed its plan for A Bug’s Life 2, the news suggests the film is in its early production stage. As per the source, the sequel is the upcoming American 3D computer-animated film and will be Pixar’s 25th feature film. But the studio hasn’t confirmed this news. Well, there are plenty of rumors surfacing on the internet hinting at A Bug’s Life 2 release date and its production status. However, it turns out that all the news is a hoax. This is because Pixar never made any official statement regarding its sequel.

Why Pixar Never Revisited A Bug’s Life 2?

There are plenty of reasons Pixar never re-explored A Bug’s Life. Let’s begin with its feud with DreamWorks. When Jobs and his team learned about Jeffrey’s project, a public feud erupted between Pixar’s Steve Jobs and John Lasseter and DreamWorks’ Jeffrey Katzenberg. The team remained dismayed when they heard DreamWorks was working on the same project as theirs, leading to public actuation for copying their storyline. While Pixar remained firm in its decision and beat its rival film at the box office, this rivalry somewhat affected A Bug’s Life.

Another big reason for not exploring A Bug’s Life was Pixar’s other film, Toy Story. Well, the Toy Story franchise has a huge name in the entertainment industry as it has had four successful movies till now. And somewhat, Toy Story overshadowed A Bug’s Life. As soon after A Bug’s Life premiere, Pixar started working on Toy Story 2. Later on, the studio never revisited Flik’s world, while it continued to return with more Toy Story movies.

A Bug’s Life 2: Revenge Of The Grasshoppers: Storyline Out!

Although the studio house hasn’t revealed whether the movie will return for another sequel, fans have started speculating how the next chapter will unfold. As per speculation, A Bug’s Life 2 will explore right after Hopper’s passing. If you remember, the wild birds ate him in the final moment. So, his passing could play a significant role in brewing a revenge spree against Flik and his ant colony.

Now, Flik has gained recognition as the colony’s greatest inventor on Ant Island. Atta has taken over the island, claiming the throne after the passing of the former queen from a heart stroke- since the actor portraying the former queen passed away. Now that everything has become peaceful, the ants prepare for a harvest festival. Unbeknownst to them, the grasshoppers return to destroy everything. The rebel team is believed to be led by a new leader, Hopper Jr., the late Hopper’s son.

Meanwhile, Francis heads into the love island with a new female ladybug, Scarlet. She is the one for him, and there’s no going back.
