Good news everyone! One of the best Pixar movies (and one of my personal top three) has a sequel in development!
Disney head Bob Iger dropped a big piece of news offhandedly during the Disney Investor’s Meeting today, stating that Brad Bird is working on the story for The Incredibles 2 and that Pixar is also working on a new Cars movie.
No surprise that Cars is being worked on, that property is a license to print money. Or collect it from exhausted parents anyway. However Brad Bird working on an Incredibles sequel? That’s awesome news. There’s no other real news about it yet but take heart from this quote from Brad Bird a few years ago (also in the linked article) about doing a sequel:
I love the world. I love the characters, and if I could come with a story that was as good or better than the original, I’d go there in a second. I have pieces of things that I would love to see in a sequel, but I haven’t got them all together yet, and I certainly wouldn’t want to come out there with something that is less than the original. … Sequels are not part of the business plan at Pixar. It’s all about the filmmakers being passionate about going somewhere.
So yeah. If this could be at the top of the Pixar Priority List that’d be great.
