Fans of Brad Bird’s The Incredibles have been anxiously awaiting any kind of news or announcements regarding the film’s announced sequel. While the director has not shied away from giving periodic script updates and teasing the sequel’s direction, the movie was surprisingly absent from Pixar’s presentation at this year’s D23 Expo, and it doesn’t seem like the studio has any immediate plans for the film – much to the chagrin of the original’s fans.
Well, Disney has not been wasting any time going into this year’s New York Comic-Con, after the studio already announced new release dates for six of its Marvel movies (including the announcement of a highly-anticipated sequel) earlier this morning – Walt Disney Pictures has officially revealed (H/T Variety) the release dates for thirteen more movies, including Cars 3 in 2017, and The Incredibles 2 in 2019. Check out the full list of release dates below:
- Cars 3 now dated on June 16th, 2017
- Coco set for a theatrical release on November 22nd, 2017
- Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action) now set for February 22nd, 2017
- Gigantic will hit theatres on March 9th, 2018
- Toy Story 4 moves to June 15th, 2018
- Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action) now dated on November 2nd, 2018
- Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action) now dated on March 29th, 2019
- Untitled Disneytoon Studios now dated on April 12th, 2019
- The Incredibles 2 set for release on June 21st, 2019
- Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action) set to hit theatres on November 8th, 2019
- Untitled Pixar Animation now dated on March 13th, 2020
- Untitled Pixar Animation now dated on June 19th, 2020
- Untitled Disney Animation set to hit theatres on November 11th, 2020
So while the 2019 date for The Incredibles 2 is most likely a longer wait than fans had probably hoped, it fits the usual pattern and time span it takes for Pixar to create and animate a full feature film, so the date at least makes sense. Luckily we’ll still have a slew of other movies to look forward to in the meantime, including Toy Story 4 in 2018 and what looks like a whole lot of untitled live-action fairy tales.
Other movies like Coco and Gigantic were revealed for the first time at this year’s D23 Expo a few months ago, and their dates seem to fall in line with the progress that was shown at the presentation. While some of the live-action projects that Disney has in development seem somewhat formulaic and similar (to put it lightly) over the next few years, all of their animated films look both incredibly original and different from each other, which should help to sprinkle in some more variety into the mix.
What is slightly surprising is the absence of any new Star Wars movie release dates, but considering that we already have the dates for Rogue One, Episode VIII, Episode IX, and the Young Han Solo movie in development with Phil Lord and Chris Miller, it probably would have been more shocking if the studio had announced an entirely new SW film without a separate press release.
