Pixar Is Planning a Pair of 3D Re-Releases, Including ‘The Incredibles’

By March 17, 2014

Okay, Pixar fans, hold your horses just a bit, because despite how exciting the news that the studio is working on a pair of 3D re-releases of some of its most popular titles, we also don’t know exactly when or how the films will hit theaters. Basically, don’t pull out your calendars and pens just yet (if you’re still into that sort of thing), because we don’t know what days you should be marking off with big sparkly stars.

ScreenDaily reports that the animation studio is currently working on 3D re-releases of both The Incredibles and Ratatouille. The outlet was recently on the scene at the 3D Creative Summit in London, where Pixar’s director of 3D production, Josh Hollander, shared, “Right now we’re working on The Incredibles, which is a lot of fun in 3D. I’m not sure what the release strategy for it will be…It’s been an interesting challenge to work on technology because – while the film was released 10 years ago – the technology is even older as it took four years to make.”

But The Incredibles isn’t the only popular Pixar property that the studio is reworking in other dimensions, as Hollander continued, “We have a version of Ratatouille, which works really well in 3D and we’re trying to figure out exactly what the release strategy for that will be.”

Pixar has never balked at crafting 3D re-releases of their films, having previously given the treatment to Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Finding Nemo, and Monsters Inc.

The studio’s next project, Inside Out, doesn’t need to worry about getting the re-release treatment down the line, as Hollander and the rest of the Pixar family are working on that film’s 3D as part of its original release. (Meanwhile, Sony is prepping its own take on a movie that takes place in a child’s mind.)

    Cool! the kids are gonna love this one. Pixar has a real of chops for making creative flicks. Hopefully Cars and Toy Story will be in the mix.

    What a cheap attempt to score more money off an already released film. I didn’t think that flick was all that good anyway.

    Why is it the movie companies think that 3-D solves all ills? Let’s get back to some entertainment.

    Are you serious? What a total rip off! No way am I gonna help them fatten their wallets just to see it in 3D.
