The one sequel everyone actually wants to see could actually happen! In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Brad Bird said the possibility of making a sequel to the extremely successful The Incredibles exists and that he has been thinking about it quite a bit. Here’s the entire quote:
“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.”
So it looks like he has been thinking about it and has bits of the story figured out. Once it clicks, he’d love to do the movie. If you look at the comments from our article about Pixar’s Mystery Sequel, you’ll see everyone wants this one. This also disproves the theory that Teddy Newton’s mysterious film is the superhero sequel we all want to see.
So, are you excited that there’s a confirmed possibility of this happening? What is Pixar’s mystery sequel then? Is Brad Bird the greatest human being ever? It could be 5 or more years until we can actually see it, but at least we know he hasn’t forgotten about this world!
