Talks of a sequel have been going on since the film's release in 1997, but only begun gaining traction in 2014 when Evan McGregor mentioned that there was a script. Stars Tara Strong and Michael J. Fox mentioned they were interested in returning. However, Terry Ward has stated that he would prefer for there not to be a sequel, lest it tarnish the characters from the first film. He said, "to make something up, just because we love those characters, and turn it into a sequel — then it becomes the awful sequel."
