DISNEY Announces Long-Awaited THE INCREDIBLES Sequel

Of all the Pixar properties that have received sequels, many fans have questioned why The Incredibles never received a follow-up, whereas movies like Cars and Monsters Inc. got their own sequels/prequels (Toy Story has too much nostalgia for me to criticize any additions to the franchise). Well, the long wait is finally over. During a shareholder meeting in Portland, Ore. today, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that there are plans to produce The Incredibles 2, as well as Cars 3.

There are no plot details yet, but Iger did say that director Brad Bird is working on a story for The Incredibles 2. This news comes one day after the announcement that The Incredibles would be re-released in theaters in 3D. However, if this sequel comes to fruition, don’t expect to see it for many years. Pixar’s upcoming releases include Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur in 2015, Finding Dory in 2016 and an untitled film about Dia de los Muertos which hasn’t set a date yet. There are also two untitled films set for release in 2017 and one set for 2018, so it’s possible The Incredibles 2 could nab one of those spots.
