‘The Incredibles 2’ Set for June 21, 2019

Ladies and gentlemen, it finally happened. The sequel to what is arguably one of the best Pixar films of all time now has something we have all wanted to see: a release date.

As part of a larger developing news story, Disney revealed (and shuffled) the launch dates for much of its upcoming films. As a result, we now know The Incredibles 2 will arrive in theaters on June 21, 2019.

“I have the story arc,” Brad Bird told Collider at the press event for The Iron Giant: Signature Edition. “I’m probably three-quarters through the script, first pass through the script, but we’re already boarding parts of it,” he continued. “I’ve got a lot of people that worked on the first one working on it, so we’re all having a good time with it.”

As you can clearly tell from the release date and Brad’s comments, it will be a while before we see anything approximating plot details or even new footage for The Incredibles 2. It should be worth the wait, as The Incredibles 2 is one of the most highly-anticipated animated films of this generation. If it took us eleven years to get firm confirmation the movie will really happen, then what is the harm in giving Brad and his crew another five to make the best film possible?

Stay tuned for more coverage on the new information revealed and the changes announced in Disney’s mega-announcement.

What do you think? Are you excited for The Incredibles 2? Do you think the wait will be worth it?

  • It seems interesting, but I don’t even wanna think about how old I’ll be in 2019, lol!

    On a side note, I find it interesting that they’ve swapped Cars 3 and Toy Story 3 with the former being released in 2017 now and the latter in 2018.

    • Patrick Moffatt

      I disapprove of the switch with Toy Story 4 and Cars 3 to me that’s like John Lasseter giving the middle finger to Buzz and Woody by saying “Screw you Buzz and Woody I care more about Mater’s stupidness than I do about the beloved characters from my first movie that everybody loved!”

      • rbrtck

        Perhaps instead Lasseter actually has a good reason for making the switch.

        • Harith Sami

          to give more time to developed the story or change it to something better & more original than looking for an old friend.

  • Trev

    The countdown begins! Only 1351 days until The Incred…

    dear lord

  • brandon

    A friendly reminder that animated feature films take 3-4 years (on average) to make. Even for a film as readily anticipated as this one, Pixar can’t simply role the cameras on it this weekend and have it ready by this time next year.

    If the majority of HTTYD fans don’t mind waiting another three years for How to Train Your Dragon 3, than it shouldn’t kill you to wait an extra year for The Incredibles 2.

    • Míriam

      Exactly, we’ve waited 11 years already, what are 4 more years? I’m just happy it’s happening and I just want it to be awesome! o/

    • Harith Sami

      At first HTTYD3 it was at the same release date of finding dory & despicable me 3 so they delay it to 2017 when pixar’s movie was “untitled pixar movie” that was safe until TOY STORY 4, so they push it to 2018, and now toy story moves to them.
      Toy story 3 is the reason that the first film under-preformed in the box office.
      They might just push it because dreamworks lost the lost the chance with their last few films and they fired 36% of the company, OK we love pixar but please don’t kill dreamworks they have good quality in some of there films. :'(

    • Trev

      Everybody knows that. It’s just humorous that they announced the release date so many years in advanced. Calm down lol…

      • brandon

        You might think it’s funny, but I assure you that some hardcore fans somewhere had made a fracas over why it can’t come sooner.

        In that regard, I have no problem with warning the uneducated masses. So why don’t you calm down 😉

    • Manuel Orozco

      I won’t mind waiting another three years of HTTYD 3!

  • Johnny

    how dare Cars 3 taking over Toy Story 4’s 2017 summer slot, Not Cool

    • johnny

      and also i don’t approve The Incredibles 2 for 2019, i would rather see it in 2018, This is so Unfair, this is a bad plan for Disney

      • brandon

        Is it really unfair that animated films take 3-4 years from start to finish?

      • Manuel Orozco

        Well on the bright side, it’ll come out for the original’s 15th anniversary.

    • Manuel Orozco

      Totally not cool

  • Sebastian

    Well that came as a surprise espically the switch between Cars 3 & Toy Story 4

    • Manuel Orozco

      Same with me

  • surfercharlie25

    2019? I’ll be OLD then!

    Seriously, though, I’m fine with this. I’d rather have a great film in four years than a shoddy film in one or two years.

    • Ryan Prieto

      You will only be old on the outside friend.

      Agreed though, I would give up a lot more time for a great film. Lets hope we all make it.

  • Ryan Prieto

    Take as much time as you need guys, put out a great film, and I will be happy. Put out a bad film… ill probably ignore it.

  • I am happy that we did have a date and sad how its so long
    But I understand great genius and possibly a new Pixar movie does take time so I eagerly await!!

    • Manuel Orozco

      My thoughts exactly! Pixar has developed a legendary reputation these past 2 decades.

  • Roy K.

    I’ll be 18 the year it comes out….
    I’ll be waiting.

  • Manuel Orozco

    At first, I was skeptical about it happening after so long but now I’m cautious it will be worth the wait as long as the story is good and Violet and Dash actually age a little to maybe young adults with Jack Jack as a preteen or teenager. Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar flicks and I’m expecting not one single misstep.
