Last year Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that Pixar was set to begin work on The Incredibles 2. ‘Bout freaking time right? Unfortunately, it seems that the project isn’t as far along as we hoped.
According to a recent interview with NPR about the sequel, Brad Bird said it was “percolating”. He notes:
“I’m just staring to write it, so we’ll see what happens.”
So does this mean that work has literally just begun? We doubt it. Odds are a story has been in place since the announcement and Bird, now free of commitments, has begun hammering down the script. This scenario seems more likely given Bird’s comments at a 2007 Wondercon panel:
“But I think at Pixar, the bottom line is the story that you’re telling. And Pixar does not look at sequels as a financial plan. We feel we have a relationship with the audience and that they believe in each movie we put out. We believe completely in every movie we put out. If I can come up with a story that is as good or better than that first film, then I’d love to return to that world, but it would have to be story first.”
Either way, one thing is for sure—we’re going to have to be patient and wait a few more years before The Incredibles 2 becomes a reality.
