In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter (as spotted on IGN), The Incredibles director, Brad Bird discussed the potential for the frequently fan-requested sequel, “I have been thinking about it. People think that I have not been, but I have”. This is great news as Pixar fans have requested more from The Incredibles than any other film. Check out all of Brad’s comments regarding the film below and be sure to check out the full article for additional discussions (not regarding Pixar).
What are the chances we’ll ever see an Incredibles 2?
“I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another [Incredibles] film, and if I can get ‘em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that. I like the idea of moving a little more quickly in films. I’m looking for ways to accelerate the pace a little bit and figure out a way to keep creative control over these movies to a level where I’m comfortable with the end result but also speed them up a bit and make more of them. I have many different films I wanna make. It’s like a big airplane hangar and I have different projects on the floor; half-assembled in my brain. I’m interested in all of them. You kind of have to move on the ones people are willing to pay for and the ones you’re most excited about.”It’s important to note that Bird is not confirming that he is (or will be) working on an Incredibles sequel, but it merely lends some hope to a topic that he hasn’t addressed previously. That being said, we’re as excited as everyone else about the potential of a follow-up to the amazing movie!
