Despite how critically despised the first Yogi Bear movie was, when an animated film can pull in over $200 million worldwide, it's almost certainly guarantees a sequel. Plans for Yogi Bear 2 were announced earlier this year, but more as a potential project than anything else.
According to Deadline, WB has moved forward with the sequel, attaching Super Troopers director Jay Chandrasekhar to rewrite and direct the project, which will almost certainly be in 3D.
Chandrasekhar's most recent film was The Babymakers, starring Paul Schneider and Olivia Munn, though he has spent the bulk of his career directing for television series including Chuck, Psych, Community and Royal Pains.
No release date has been set yet, but we can probably expect the sequel to arrive sometime next year, possibly during the holidays.
