Brad Bird gives an update on the "very actively moving" Incredibles 2

08.30.2016

It's hard to believe that it's been 12 years since THE INCREDIBLES graced the silver screen, giving audiences what's widely regarded one of the best superhero stories. It may have taken a few years more than we'd like, but writer/director Brad Bird is finally working with Pixar on a sequel. He took a moment to give a small update to Entertainment Weekly regarding the status of THE INCREDIBLES 2, of which you can read below.

Brad Bird on THE INCREDIBLES 2:

I don’t like unwrapping presents before Christmas. It’s very actively moving, and we’re excited about it. [We’re] trying to take it in some new directions. Hopefully it’s the same characters and feel, but going in a new direction. I mean, that’s the trick with a sequel. It’s repeating yourself, without repeating yourself.

It's not a lot of information, but I'll take any confirmation that a sequel to THE INCREDIBLES is well underway. The landscape for superhero films has changed a lot in the last 12 years, so I'm curious to see how Bird and Co. will handle that in their film. Some would argue that the genre is already over-saturated, and while I don't agree with that sentiment, I think Pixar is smart enough to take that into consideration when crafting their sequel.

THE INCREDIBLES 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 21, 2019.
