BREAKING: Disney Finally Is Making ‘The Incredibles 2’! Also ‘Cars 3’ Confirmed

Share on Pinterest

Wow, this is probably the biggest Pixar news to drop in a long time. The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3 are happening!

Today in a conference call to shareholders, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that Pixar is indeed making The Incredibles 2, a sequel to the universally beloved Brad Bird film The Incredibles. Iger also confirmed that Cars 3 is also in development, something that many had suspected for a while.

The Incredibles 2


Not much was given about this highly anticipated film, except that Brad Bird is penning the screenplay for the sequel. Bird always said that he was open to and thinking about an Incredibles sequel, but only if the story was right. Well, looks like he has cracked that nut! (Check out our ideas for the sequel’s story here.)

Bird is known for having very tight scripts and very little revisions are needed (it actually holds the record for the least amount of storyboards of any Pixar film, a fact I recently learned on my visit to the studio). So this could suggest that once Bird knows what he wants, production could go very quickly. Disney didn’t say who would direct the film, but it seems obvious here that it’s going to be Bird after he finishes up with Tomorrowland, which releases later this year.

We know that the studio is going to re-release The Incredibles in 3D, which will definitely spark interest in the franchise again (as if it ever left). No word on when it will be released, but it most likely will come before the release of the new sequel, much like Toy Story 3D opened a month before Toy Story 3.

This news suggests that The Incredibles 2 will also be made in 3D, since Disney/Pixar is putting so much effort to convert the old one. A 3D release would be a great addition. No release date for The Incredibles 2 was announced.

Also, it looks like Pixar employees were excited to finally be able to talk about The Incredibles 2:


Cars 3


The Cars 3 announcement didn’t come as a shock to anyone. Back in October, Michael Wallis, voice of sheriff in the series, accidentally revealed that Cars 3 was in the works and would be apart historic Route 99.

Cars 3 isn’t really news that gets hardcore Pixar fans excited. But hopefully it will be more in line with the feel of the first film, rather than the second, which was panned by critics. No release date was announced.

Either way, this is incredible (get it?) news for Pixar fans. The Incredibles is the one franchise that fans have been clamoring for a sequel for over a decade. It’s also the only sequel that fans seem to approve of Pixar making except the Toy Story films.

Pixar has stated that it will start releasing “one and a half” original films per year, meaning one original film and one sequel. This shows its new strategy of leveraging its current franchises while continuing to build new ones. Pixar’s slate is pretty full at the moment, with Inside OutThe Good Dinosaur and Finding Dory coming up in 2015 and 2016. So it’s unlikely that we’ll see The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3 until 2018 at the earliest.

      Don’t yell at me! Sorry for being stupid!

        shes from iCarly

    • tt

      I really hope they make Cars 3 good….. coz if they don’t, this might be the first flop from Pixar. but if they make a better story than Cars 1, then they’ll still got it.

    • kamal kishorelayoutspark

      the real incredible inside u is coming out 😀

  • I should probably stop shrieking with unadulterated joy. But this moment deserves it.

  • Sebastian

    Super duper finally fans don’t haft to send messages to Pixar anymore here comes THE INCREDIBLES 2

  • Matthew Taranto


    I would take a Cars FIVE if it means an Incredibles 2! I’ve never been this psyched for a movie announcement!

  • Matthew Taranto

    Also, I blame The Rotoscopers for Cars 3! It was all because of this article:


    That, or you guys are especially clairvoyant. How about this April’s gag be about a sequel to Wreck-It Ralph? 😉

    • We knew it was happening even before Disney knew it was happening! Ha!

    • David Kang

      So true, and all this time I thought it was an April Fools joke!

  • Fadi Antwan


    *nobody cares about Cars 3*

    • McKenzie

      I do!

      • Anthony Raphael

        Me TOO

    • Ian White

      #FadiAntwan , GET THE F–K OUT!!!

  • Not Without


  • Anthony Raphael

    I’m happy for both Cars 3 and Incredibles 2

  • I can’t say that I’m fond of Pixar making more sequels instead of original films, but I’m excited for “The Incredibles”.

    “Cars 3” just sounds…eh….but if they bring back Michael Caine as a voice, it’d be awesome! It’ll be a great thing to hear him say “You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!”, cuz it’d make so much sense as a car! Unless he’s already said it in “Cars 2” and I missed it.

    (Isn’t it ironic that the April Fool’s article on this site turned out to be true after all?)

    • Biblio-Phil

      I know right? It took me forever to wrap my mind around the coincidinkyness of that.
      Maybe Disney saw the April Fool’s article and decided, “hey, great idea! We should totally make a Cars 3!” XD

    • Fadi Antwan

      Toy Story 3 is currently my favorite animated movie, and that’s a second sequel! You liked that, didn’t you? Sequels can REALLY WORK, so I don’t necessarily always prefer studios to make original movies exclusively.

      • Jenni

        Disney only makes sequels for money. And their sequels suck. Just overhyped as usual by feelings of “nostalgia”.

  • Marier Villarreal

    Finally!! My mom and dad will be very please with the news of an Incredibles 2, they are fans of that movie!

    *No one talks about Cars 3 after hearing the news*

  • Nathan C.

    So I guess the Rotoscopers weren’t trolling us after all! *referring to Cars 3* 🙂

  • Haley TheRadiant


  • Debbie

    This is amazing! I have always believed that The Incredible 2 was going to happen eventually, but I didn’t think it was going to be announced or even greenlit until after Brad Bird finished Tomorrowland . This is the best news I’ve heard all day. I actually don’t mind the fact that Cars 3 is being made because it sounds like it’ll be more like the first Cars film, which I like.

  • David Kang

    sad and happy at the same time? wait, what?

  • Bob Smith

    For Incredibles 2, I hope that a good story really was available, and the movie didn’t come up due to fan demand.

    As for Cars 3, I’m not the biggest fan of the Cars movie. The first was fine enough, but I haven’t the urge to see Cars 2, and the supposed reputation it holds doesn’t help much.

    Other than that, looking forward to both.

  • Haley TheRadiant

    And Cars 3 WTH/WTF NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bill

    Ratatouille was also announced to be in 3D.

  • EllaCedar13

    YAY! All for Incredibles 2.

  • Jenni

    And both of them will suck.

  • Christy

    I feel like Disney is sporting with our intelligence. They are taking us for all we are worth by leaving out. Bonus Features that we want to see. I bet they will come out with a mini-bluray of the bonus features when they see the uproar. I am very disappointed and disillusioned with Disney, but what is new? Um. Brave?

  • Yuri Allysson

    Yay, I always wanted a Incredible sequel! I wonder how the animation will be better, I’m so excited!! Not so excited to Cars 3.

  • Bout time

    Incredibles 2? F**k yeah!!!

  • Aliscen Khaw

    i wish i had known this,when they came to my school last week, then we might have gotten some juicy details or speculations from them ….XD

    • EllaCedar13

      They came to your school?!? LUCKY!

      • Aliscen Khaw

        thx but it was all thanks to my principal and the pixar artists, it was the 1st time a big animation studio ever came to asia!

  • I’ve just gotta say, I really miss my friends while I’m at work because no one on set understood when I accidentally shrieked and jumped when I read about Incredibles 2. Ugh, adults.

  • kamal kishorelayoutspark

    cars 3 really ..car which defines the speed and adventure,even though car story is about race …but still progress is about 20 kph..in both the movie the adventure and speed was full of flaws…….. i don’t care about the upcoming movie known as cars3.

  • Ian White

    I love the Cars franchise, and I can’t wait to see Cars 3. I loved the first Cars movie and think Cars 2 is SO bad to the bone (awesome) I want to see what will happen in Cars 3 on Route 99 in California and more on Route 66.

  • Ian White

    I also can’t wait to see The Incredibles 2!! I’m hoping Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack will be the same age as the first one.

  • eric you

    well in the sequel of the incredibles i feature mr increbile aka bob parr, violet, dash, elastigirl aka helen parr. Jack jack has grown up and he has the power of combustion, can heal himself from physical injury, can astral project, has heat vision, he can leviate objects by telekinesis, can shapeshift to various forms. a new villain is shown he has the power to bring inanimate objects to life, fly, shoot fire balls, can split himself from a good superhero to an evil supervillain, enter a person’s dreams, repair broken objects, and is shown to be henchman for a more powerful sinister villain who has the power to live forever.
