Pixar making The Incredibles 2!
Disney's chief confirms that both The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3 are on the way from Pixar...
You know that bit where if you sit and wish hard enough, sometimes it comes true? Well, if you were one of those who was wondering if there would be a sequel to Brad Bird's brilliant The Incredibles, then stand back: Disney has now confirmed that another Incredibles film is in the works. Our, and many other people's wish, has come true.
This makes us very, very, very, very, very, very happy.
The news was broken by Bob Iger, the CEO of Walt Disney, who revealed that Pixar was working both on The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3. No further details - including details of who's directing and when to expect the films - are thus far forthcoming. A Tweet from Pixar added that "we’re currently working on new films featuring your favorite characters from The Incredibles and Cars". The Hollywood Reporter noted that Iger said it was new movies in both franchises that are being worked on.
So who will make The Incredibles 2? Brad Bird, for one, is knee deep making Tomorrowland at the moment, due for release next year. There are two projects on our wishlist for him. One is sorting out The Iron Giant Blu-ray. Two is The Incredibles 2. We've suddenly got a glimmer of hope of the latter, not least because Bird has professed interest in the project in the past. At the very least, he'll get first refusal.
