Brit Sleuth in 'Gnomeo and Juliet' Sequel

In lit class we learn that Romeo and Juliet die. If that's a spoiler you live under a rock or you avoided the Leonardo DiCaprio acid trip Romeo + Juliet.  In Gnomeo and Juliet kids learn that they live happily ever after.  Now they're going to learn that Sherlock Holmes is a lawn gnome who helps solve neighborhood mysteries.  Voila! I just told you about a sequel.

Sir Elton John's production company Rocket Pictures has enlisted John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda) to direct Sherlock Gnomes, their 2nd 3D animation release.  If news of John having a production company in the first place is surprising it's ok; they've only had a total of 4 actual releases since 1996.  A musician has to keep busy. 

This is set to begin early next year with British writers Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil on board; they were around for the first film.  According to the CEO of Rocket, Stevenson is a good fit for the garden world: "John has the perfect sensibility for this movie, together with the vision to build on the first film to create a distinctive, fresh and action-packed adventure".  I have no expectations of anything superb.  Just something fun.
