‘The Incredibles 2’ is Being Written

By April 12, 2015

Pixar’s 2004 film The Incredibles is still widely regarded as one of the absolute best that the talented animation studio has ever produced, coming in right as the new golden age of superhero films was at its peak and becoming both a parody and love letter to the genre of comic book heroes. Almost since its release, fans have been wondering whether or not a second film with the same characters would be made, and now we have a semblance of an answer: yes.

The first film’s writer/director Brad Bird recently sat down for an interview with NPR, where he let the cat out of the bag that we would be seeing those characters again down the road. While talking about other topics of his career like his upcoming live-action film Tomorrowland, Bird stated that work on a sequel to The Incredibles has just barely begun. He said that the sequel has been “percolating,” and that he’s “just starting to write it.” Because of that it’s likely that we won’t see it for several more years, but the fact that it’s being worked on at all should prove to be very positive news for anyone that loved the first one when it originally came out.

Critically lauded upon its release, The Incredibles currently holds a 97% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with a CinemaScore of “A+.” At the box office, The Incredibles boasts a worldwide gross of over $631 million, and the film featured a budget of approximately $92 million. Although the property has been out of the public eye for some time, chances are that the film could end up being revitalized at the creative eleven due to the Walt Disney Company’s acquisition of Marvel Entertainment, featuring some of the most iconic superheroes in the entire world. Pixar has already benefited from the acquisition, as Big Hero 6 was loosely based on the Marvel superhero team of the same name.

Bird’s latest, Tomorrowland, will be released by Disney on May 22nd. For more on The Incredibles 2 as it continues to take shape, keep an eye on GeekNation!
