Good news! Almost ten years after the original, Disney and Pixar are finally working on a sequel to The Incredibles! And also Cars 3. Yes, a whole new look at one of Pixar’s most beloved, memorable movies! And another turd from that series about talking cars. Time reports …
Brad Bird, who directed and wrote the original 2004 film, is now writing The Incredibles 2. Bird had previously been hesitant to continue the story of Mr. Incredible and his superhero family. According to Slashfilm, he said at 2007 WonderCon, “Pixar does not look at sequels as a financial plan. We feel we have a relationship with the audience and that they believe in each movie we put out. We believe completely in every movie we put out. If I can come up with a story that is as good or better than that first film, then I’d love to return to that world, but it would have to be story first.”
Disney is also developing Cars 3. After ho-hum reviews for Cars 2 and Monsters University, Pixar President Ed Catmull promised earlier this year that the iconic animation studio would be scaling back on sequels and working on more original films. But that apparently doesn’t preclude Pixar churning out both new films and sequels to old favorites.
Yes, another rolicking, fast-paced adventure about everyone’s favorite superhero family! And another excuse to give Larry The Cable Guy a million dollar paycheck. Which seems extravagant, but did you NOT see Cars 2? Mater ate wasabi thinking that it was pistachio ice cream! HO HO! When will the laughter begin?
