Let's take John Carter Back to Barsoom!
Once in a very long time, a film comes along that captures the imagination and transports viewers to a spectacular, previously unexplored world where they encounter cultures and characters that ignite the spirit and stir the soul. Andrew Stanton's "John Carter", based on the visionary 1912 Novel "A Princess of Mars" by Edgar Rice Burroughs, is such a film.
Audiences worldwide have journeyed to Barsoom and are deeply moved and inspired by the world and the characters they have encountered there. Avid fans have seen the film multiple times in theaters; others are creating artwork inspired by the movie, and a global community of engaged fans are making their voices heard that this first film should not be the last. John Carter deserves a sequel!
If you too have been touched by this movie and the world it creates; if you feel that you have not had enough of John Carter, Dejah Thoris, Woola, Tars Tarkas, Kantos Kan and the world they inhabit, will you join us? Please add your name to our petition so that the producers of this rare and deserving film will know that in this instance, the film-makers have created something special, and deeply appreciative fans are prepared to support future films in the series. Let's give Disney Studios the encouragement they need to believe in this film, and the film-makers, and the fans who will nurture John Carter of Mars into a series that will inspire and entertain for decades to come.

- Help Keep Edgar Rice Burroughs 'John Carter of Mars' Alive!
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Alan Horn, Chairman, Walt Disney/Pixar Studios
Bring Back John Carter - Take Us Back To Barsoom!
Greetings Mr. Horn,
I have signed the attached petition to express my great desire to see the sequel to your wonderful film, John Carter. This petition is only one facet of a campaign started by an increasing number of fans that adore the film and are doing everything in our power to see it succeed! We have taken it upon ourselves to turn around the negative public image that has undeservedly been cast on John Carter.
On March 20, ten days into the theatrical run of John Carter, Walt Disney Studios issued a statement that Disney expected an operating loss of approximately $200 million during their second fiscal quarter ending March 31. While this initially caused headlines from some critics to announce, “Mega-bomb” and ”Biggest flop in cinema history”, developments have now changed. As more and more people have gone to see John Carter, the love for this excellent film has grown. There are now a greater number of critics praising this film than there are who hate it and when the DVD/BluRay versions are released there can be no doubt that John Carter will gain a huge amount of new fans who will desire a sequel as much as we do.
Thousands and thousands of fans from all over the world are expressing their appreciation for this brilliant film. John Carter is everything it is suppose to be! A heartwarming film from beginning to end! A genre film that is full of adventure and romance—A film that all science fiction films can pay homage to—A film the whole family can get lost in on a Saturday afternoon.
The cast is fantastic, the effects have now set the bar higher than ever for other films to match in scope and beauty, and Andrew Stanton has created a gem that is a complete success in his first foray into live-action filmmaking!
The unfortunate circumstances surrounding John Carter’s lack of box office success in the US should not reflect on the excellence of the film itself, which the public will recognize, and are recognizing, when they see it. Internationally, John Carter has done extremely well and were it not for these strange and unfortunate circumstances in the states, it would have become the blockbuster it fully deserves to be.
As huge fans of this film, we are spreading positive reviews and slowly, but surely, we are seeing results. As great word-of-mouth grows, so will audiences who will all be begging for that much-desired sequel.
This is not a sprint, but a marathon. Our mission will not stop once John Carter is out of theaters. We will grow our base by leaps and bounds, once viewers see John Carter at home, and we will not sit still until we get that sequel green-lit by Disney Studios! This could prove to be a very unique situation that Disney could use in its favor when the time comes to announce that sequel. I can see the headlines now:
Enthusiastic Fans Turn Apparent John Carter Failure Into Success! Get Ready For ‘John Carter: The Gods Of Mars!’”
“Disney’s John Carter Goes From Flop To Fantastic!”
“John Carter Fans Cry Fowl, Turn The Tide, And Disney’s Bomb Explodes Into Success!”
Bring Back John Carter! Please take us Back To Barsoom!!! We Want A John Carter Sequel!
