Brad Bird on The Incredibles 2
The Pixar sequel that we all really want is The Incredibles 2. But is it any closer to being made?
We're not the only ones, we suspect, who have a different Pixar sequel wishlist to the one we're getting. Granted, the Toy Story trilogy is brilliant, but Cars 2 wasn't. And while we're looking forward to Monsters University, and will inevitably buy a ticket for the now-announced Finding Nemo 2, it's surely The Incredibles that most lends itself to a follow-up.
Nobody has ever ruled The Incredibles 2 out, and director Brad Bird has chatted about it before. He's given an update though on his thoughts in a new piece with The Hollywood Reporter. And he admitted “I've been thinking about it. People think I have not been, but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head".
He added that "I have many, many elements that would work really well in another (Incredibles) film, and if I can get 'em to click together, I would probably wanna do that... I have many different films I wanna make. It's like a big airplane hangar and I have different projects on the floor; half-assembled in my brain... You kind of have to move on the ones that are willing to pay for and the ones you're most excited about.”
Given the fact that The Incredibles made a healthy profit, we'd imagine that there's plenty of people that would be willing to pay for a sequel. Fingers crossed we'll get one, but with Bird's immediate priority being his second live action feature, Tomorrowland, we've got a long wait ahead...
