Do you think we'll ever get another R-rated CGI-animated film like Sausage Party?

After his raunchy R-rated animated comedy film succeeded in the box office, creator Seth Rogen expressed interest in making a sequel to Sausage Party, leaving off where the entrance into the real dimension took place. He said that he'd be very interested in a live-action animation crossover a la Who Framed Roger Rabbit, citing it as one of his all-time favorite movies. More importantly though, he expressed interested in creating other CGI-animated films intended for adults alongside the sequel project.

To answer my own question, I think it's damn near a possibility, but probably not something we'll get until nearly the end of the decade. CGI was known for two decades as a family-exclusive category until Sausage Party skewered the stereotype that all animated films are for kids in 2016, and of course it drew mass controversy from parents who thought it was a kids movie just because it's animated, similar to Deadpool's fate earlier that year for being about superheroes. Personally I think another independent adult animated movie in CGI could follow into SP's footsteps several years from now, but I don't really see it becoming a consecutive project mainly due to complaining misinformed parents and moral guardians. Hell, I don't think even a sequel to Sausage Party would come anywhere close to the success of its predecessor. It would probably be of poor direct-to-DVD quality, and honestly, the movie has become a dead horse by now. It didn't have a major cultural impact and hardly anyone remembers it today outside of its infamous status as the first R-rated CGI movie and its trailers. In my opinion, the movie was just okay; it provided some decent laughs and had vibrant animation, but nothing was near groundbreaking and I wouldn't go out of my way to rewatch it.

Aside from it being old news and lacking a historical impact, the story behind the animators being used just seems to controversial to me for a sequel to be greenlit anytime soon. Thus, any other potential CGI adult animated projects would likely suffer the same fate.

I was mostly talking about animated adult films generated in CGI form, something that the article didn't address unless I missed something.

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is often given the incorrect title as the first computer-animated film to be rated R, but because it lacks any 3D elements, Sausage Party earns the title more often and rightfully so.

SPA has only ever made CGI films, so I would say it's inevitable.
