A couple weeks ago, we learned the exciting news that The Incredibles 2 was in the works with original director Brad Bird writing the script.  A sequel to The Incredibles has never been off the table with Bird, and while it’s welcome news that he’s actually planning to return to the superhero family, there’s also hope for their super-powered friend, Frozone (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson).  Bird is clearly a fan of the character because in a recent interview Jackson said, “Every time I run into Brad he always tells me Frozone is part of what’s going on, so I have to believe that.”  Jackson also says that while he can see an Incredibles movie without Frozone, he says, “Frozone would be a wonderful addition to what’s already there.”  I don’t think any of the fans would disagree.  And we also share Jackson’s curiosity when it comes to another one of the Incredibles crew: “I’m just looking forward to seeing what Jack-Jack turned into,” he says.

Disney Developing THE INCREDIBLES 2 and CARS 3

Pixar has a string of original films due out over the next couple of years, but they’ll be returning to sequels in 2016 with Finding Dory.  The studio needs to pay the bills with known properties, and it looks like they’ll have a couple more on the way.  According to /Film, Disney chief Bob Iger told investors that The Incredibles creator Brad Bird is writing The Incredibles 2.  Iger also said Pixar is working on another Cars film, which isn’t much of a surprise considering that kids will buy the merchandise forever.

The reason to get excited is for The Incredibles 2 since Bird is going to be involved.  The filmmaker has never written off the possibility of a sequel, and a few years ago he said he had “some ideas” for it.  He’s currently working on his second live-action feature, Tomorrowland (due out May 22, 2015), and I doubt we’d see The Incredibles 2 until probably 2018 at the earliest.  Nevertheless, it’s still exciting that the superhero family might be returning to the big screen.  Hit the jump for a recap of Pixar’s current release schedule.

Brad Bird Talks THE INCREDIBLES 2 and STAR WARS: EPISODE VII

Brad Bird is currently at work on Tomorrowland, but he recently discussed a road he could take one day and a road not taken.  For the former, Bird commented on the possibility of making a sequel to The Incredibles.  Briefly, Bird says he hasn’t forgotten about the characters and that world.  The issue is how to “get ‘em to click all together.”  Bird adds that he wants to keep creative control, but he also has other projects he’s trying to work on (among them could be the historical drama, 1906).  There’s also the issue of getting Pixar on board when that studio has its next four films lined-up, and while a possible sequel to one of their movies is in development, I doubt it’s Incredibles without Bird’s involvement.

Brad Bird Reveals He Has “Some Ideas” for THE INCREDIBLES 2; Says Movie Will Happen When Story is Right

Director Brad Bird is poised to make his live-action debut with this fall’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and for those of you lost as to why so many people are excited about that prospect, it has a little something to do with Bird’s oeuvre. The director’s animated filmography includes outstanding works such as The Iron Giant, Ratatouille, and of course The Incredibles. The latter has drawn quite a bit of sequel chatter over time, as it’s generally regarded as one of the best films to come out of Pixar (and that’s saying something). We recently got the chance to talk to Bird and he revealed that he’s not at all opposed to making an Incredibles follow-up, and talked about what it would take to make the sequel happen. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

One of my favorite composers is Michael Giacchino.  That’s because in the last decade, Giacchino has written some amazing scores including The Incredibles, Speed Racer, Ratatouille, Up, Star Trek (2009), Super 8, Lost, Alias, Fringe, and so many more.  With Giacchino writing the score for Cars 2, the other day I got to talk to him about his latest soundtrack.  Of course we also talked about other subjects including what the last few years have been like, his writing process, collaborating with directors, the challenge of scoring Star Trek, if he’s coming back for the sequel, working with the Wachowskis on Speed Racer, if he’s started work on Mission Impossible 4, and I also asked what do we have to do to get Brad Bird to make a sequel to The Incredibles.  Hit the jump to either read or listen to the interview.
