One don’t really need to be a soothsayer to forecast the production of a third installment of the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie series. Yep, I bet you that we will see Alvin and the Chipmunks 3 in a not so distant future. The second opus isn’t in theaters yet, but it’s almost assured to generate a windfall of revenue for Fox, like the first one did. Producing a Alvin and the Chipmunks movie costs just $60 million and brings in more than $300 million, so it does make sense for Fox to greenlight Alvin and the Chipmunks 3. Besides the public asks for it: a movie with cute singing critters is family must-see during the Christmas season.
So yes, we can be confident that Alvin and the Chipmunks 3 will come to theaters, most probably in December 2011.
We get to know Alvin and the Chipmunks in the first film, now we’re going to meet the chipettes in the second movie. What could be the plot of Alvin and the Chipmunks 3? Are they going to reinvent the source material or will they bring some real new story?
