Vin Diesel teases sequel to Brad Bird's The Iron Giant

The Iron Giant Brad Bird Vin Diesel Jennifer Aniston Harry Connick Jr.

THE IRON GIANT was a big box office bomb, grossing only a little over $30 million worldwide against a budget of $70 million, however it received critical acclaim from critics, and many consider it to be one of the best animated movies of all time. Vin Diesel provided the voice of the titular robot in the Brad Bird film, and in a recent post on his Facebook page about The Iron Giant being one of his favorite characters, teased a possible follow-up, saying "Don't be surprised when you hear WB announce the sequel."

Now, there's a very good chance Diesel doesn't actually know if Warner Bros. is planning on doing another movie, and is just saying don't be shocked if at some point a follow-up is announced, since it is such a great flick. Although there are more than a few people who would like to see THE IRON GIANT 2 happen, but I'm not one of them. I don't think it would taint the original movie, however I still don't think it's a great idea, even if Brad Bird does return to direct. Do you think a sequel to THE IRON GIANT is in the works?

THE IRON GIANT will return to select theaters this fall.

I don't know

I LOVE this film, but the tease at the end was a good closure IMO !
I'm afraid a sequel would diminish the emotional impact of the first one.
And without BIRD I don't see the point... Even after Tomorrowland's flop, I don't see Disney letting him go to Warner.
I mostly fear a full CGI reboot.

I LOVE this movie. It has so much heart and the voice acting is pretty damn good and works well. I remember an article that came out after the movie tanked and the author was writing about how parents didn't feel there was much in the line of good children's movies out that year and this author pointed out and mentioned how parents blinked and missed the movie they SHOULD have taken their kids to see.
On that note, as much as I would love to see a sequel, another part of me really is just

On that note, as much as I would love to see a sequel, another part of me really is just happy with how it ended. Sequels rarely live up to the originals and it would be nice to see some 2D drawn animation again (giant was CG though) but I just don't know if a sequel could retain the magic this movie had.
