Pixar Developing The Incredibles 2
And Cars 3

Pixar-Developing-The-Incredibles-2

If there’s one Pixar movie that audiences have truly demanded a sequel to, it’s Brad Bird’s fantastic superhero family outing The Incredibles. If you count yourself among that number, prepare to be pleased, because Disney boss Robert Iger has announced that the Emeryville gang is officially developing a new film, with Bird writing the script.

Yes, as announced by Iger at a shareholders meeting, The Incredibles 2 will be hitting our screens, though we don’t yet know when. Bird, of course, is also busy with his second live-action film, and is busy in post-production on the George Clooney-starring Tomorrowland. That’ll arrive in May 2015, after which Bird will hopefully turn his attention full time to working on the new Incredibles pic.

In related news, the company is also starting the early construction work on a third Cars film. Despite a far less friendly critical reaction to both the 2006 original and the 2011 sequel, there’s no arguing with the impact the movies have had on the bottom line for Disney-Pixar. The Cars franchise has spawned squillions in merchandising, launched spin-off film series Planes and is a central part of Disney’s California Adventure theme park. So... yeah. If you have kids that love Lightning, Mater and the rest, you’ll probably be happy with that.

If not, you may find yourself on a bus, screaming your feelings to the shock and consternation of your fellow passengers. But if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go back to excitedly awaiting any further news about The Incredibles 2. And listening to Michael Giacchino's score on repeat.

(I think) The Incredibles 2 well be pretty cool. I would be like Eff Yeah! if it was announced, made, and released 5-7 YEARS EARILER. now, I think Pixar is desperate to outclass Disney again (you know, Frozen). And that by the time its completed, It well be around 2017 or 2018. I'll only look a bit forward to it if Bard Bird both writes and directs it. As for Cars 3, However. Pixar is just going for another Cash Haul! First of all, John Lassiter, MOVE ON! Okay, Cars was good, but not one of thei More

I re-watched The Incredibles recently and had forgotten how good it is. Sequels eh? They really are running out of steam. What happened to the one about the last two lizards alive, that don't like each other? More

Cue the Cars bashing...
Jeez! Leave Cars alone! While they not be Oscar winning, cult classics that contain subtext about humanity and cultural references that appeal to a wider audience, they are harmless films that are fun and mildly entertaining. Even Planes, which was the same story with wings on it essentially, was harmless fun and my kids enjoyed it. Yes, Incredibles 2 will be popularly received, but the snobbery around Cars is so predictable... More

Great news
Even though I think Cars 3 & possibly Finding Dory are unnecessary I've been looking forward to Incredibles 2 for years especially with Brad Bird back. The original still stands up as one of the greatest superhero movies ever. More

Why all the sequels?
Are Pixar now incapable of thinking of a new IP? More

Fantastic news about the Incredibles
As for Cars 3, debatably if kids will watch any old guff (like Cars 2 and Planes), why not just hand off to another division in Disney for them to bung out another sub-par effort. No-one will notice! Seems a waste of 5 years of development time when Pixar could be making something you know...good. More

BEHOLD THE UNDERMINER!
Here we are a decade after the incredibles and no sequel. I'm still waiting for A Bug's Life 2 as well! Before this comes out w will have had sequels to Cars, Monstes Inc & Finding Nemo. At least Pixar are realising some new projects as well: The Good Dinosaur, Inside Out (the one inside someone's mind) More
