Sony Announces a 'Surf's Up' Sequel

Sony Pictures Animation and WWE Studios surprised everyone today by announcing a sequel to the 2007 film Surf's Up. The new movie, expected to be released in 2017, will be titled Surf's Up: Wavemania and WWE stars will join the cast.

Here is part of the official announcement, directly taken from WWE.com:
Cody Maverick, hungry for a new challenge, convinces an infamous big-wave-riding crew known as The Hang 5, voiced by WWE Superstars John Cena, The Undertaker, Triple H, WWE Diva Paige and Mr. McMahon, to let him join them on their journey to a mysterious surf spot known as The Trenches, where, legend has it, they’ll find the biggest waves in the world. Cody soon discovers that the life he left behind might be more heroic than what any death-defying wave has to offer. 
Genndy Tartakovsky’s protégé Henry Yu (story artist on "Sym-Bionic Titan" and both "Hotel Transylvania" feature films) makes his directorial debut with this project, which is produced by Michelle Wong (production manager on "Hotel Transylvania 2") and features computer animation from Rainmaker Entertainment Inc. Abdul Williams ("Lottery Ticket") is writing the screenplay.
It seems like an odd move from Sony Pictures Animation; but what do you think? Can it be as good as the original Surf's Up?
