Of all the titles in the Pixar catalog yet to be touched by the lucrative wand of sequels and spinoffs, “The Incredibles” is the notable exception. However, of all the Pixar movies, this is the title fans have been most vocally advocating for a sequel for years. And inch by inch, it’s getting closer to happening. A year ago, Disney CEO Bob Iger told investors that Brad Bird was working on a followup, and now comes more concrete news from the writer/director himself.
Chatting with NPR, Bird confirmed that the sequel was “percolating,” adding: “I’m just staring to write it, so we’ll see what happens.”
Granted, it’s not much to go on, but it’s been eleven years since the animated movie first dropped, so we’ll take what we can get. So hold out hope folks, there may be more “The Incredibles” on the way. It’s just that if you were a kid when you first saw it, you may be all grown up by time the sequel arrives.
