Disney has promised to prioritize original films over sequels, but we'll still see Incredibles 2 and Cars 3
Though the Disney Investor’s Meeting Tuesday sadly gave us few details about the upcoming Star Wars movie, we did find out that another beloved franchise is getting a sequel: Pixar’s The Incredibles.
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
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.
In 2015, Pixar will release two movies in one year for the first time ever: kids and parents will get to see both Inside Out, a movie set inside a human brain, and Finding Dory, a followup to Finding Nemo. The release date for Incredibles 2 has not been announced.
