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

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.
