The Incredibles 2, Cars 3 in development but Pirates 5 may not happen

Mar. 18, 2014by: Alex Maidy

How do you like your good movie news? With a side of more good news? I can accomodate that. Fans of Brad Bird's animated career should rejoice from yesterday's news that both RATATOUILLE and THE INCREDIBLES are getting the 3D treatment, it looks like the studio has decided to move forward with THE INCREDIBLES 2. Bird is currently filming Disney's mysterious TOMORROWLAND and has said he would come back for a sequel to his superhero classic if the story was right. There is no word as to whether he will produce, consult, script, or even direct, but I would say the likelihood is high.

This comes along with the less stellar news that CARS 3 is coming as well. The Pixar series about anthropomorphic automobiles has been a marketing behemoth for the studio but has been also the most creatively weak films Pixar has made. I did like CARS 2 a hell of a lot more than the first movie, but I am not holding my breath.

But, on the flipside of these greenlights comes word that another cash cow for Disney, the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN series, may not be a sure thing any longer. Variety's Marc Graser tweeted this today.

With directors Joachim Rnning and Espen Sandberg attached to helm PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES, it seemed like the Johnny Depp film was coming no matter what, but then the film was pushed to 2016, effectively stopping casting and pre-production until decisions could be made. While the films have made a ton of money, the fan reaction seemed to land more in the "who cares" category rather than rapt anticipation.

None of these films currently have release dates, but with the time table on animated films pretty lengthy, I wouldn't expect to see CARS 3 or THE INCREDIBLES 2 for several year. We should find out sometime this year if PIRATES 5 is happening or not.

So how the fuck has Pixar said they're going to do Incredibles 2? They haven't said anything of the sort.

And you liked Cars 2 more than the original? You fucking tool.

Incredibles 2 getting made is the best news I've heard since... well, The Incredibles.
While on the POTC bit... You know I always wonder if they could somehow make a new movie within that universe that doesn't feature Captain Jack Sparrow. My interest in piracy (the arr ye matey kind, not the downloading illegal stuff kind) is at its peak again thanks to AC Black Flag, but I really don't want to see Jack Sparrow again for quite some time. Or how about that Monkey Island movie adaptation, hmm

well I'm excited about Incredibles 2! I would rather a new Pirates movie, than a Cars 3. I thought Cars 1 was better than the sequel. I want some news about Finding Dory!

Finally we get a sequel to The Incredibles. Can't wait to see where Bird takes the story this time around. The possibilities are endless with his talent involved in this.

Dont remember anywhere saying he is writing it.

Also if the possibilities are endless you could see an R rated slasher movie?

Twat!

Pixar decided a few months ago they would alternate between sequels and original films, and from a business stand-point in makes sense. The Toy Story sequels were great, I enjoyed Monsters University a lot, and Cars 2 was just for the kids. Incredibles 2 could be great, and I hope they do it justice. Yes, the Cars films are the weakest of the Pixar films but they're not as bad as some of the other animated films of recent year. As for Pirates 5, I think the bad 4th movie killed anyone's

Pixar needs to stop with the sequels...

...Cars 2, Finding Dory, Monster's University (prequel I know, but still), and now Cars 3. What happened to the company that gave us some of the most original and brilliant movies that no other studio could ever hope to match? They used to churn out almost perfect films each year, and now the quality of their movies have dipped considerably with their insistence in depending on lame, unnecessary sequels to movies that would've been better off being stand-alones.

Having said that, The Incredibles was the ONE film basically begging for a sequel, and I couldn't be more excited for that! The story, the characters, and the feel of that world really lent itself to further adventures. If Brad Bird is still attached to direct, then it could be just as good as the 1st film. Remember, he's been working on a story for YEARS.

Yes to Incredibles 2!!!!

Asides from the "Toy Story" series, its the only film from Pixar that needed a sequel, this is great news.

Incredibles 2: Finally! The only Pixar sequel we ever wanted!
Pirates 5: I can live without it.
Cars 3: Really Pixar? Really? You started like Disney (successful and creative) and you wanna end like Disney (successful and shallow)?

Although it turned out to be great, I didn't want another Toy Story after the previous one...
But honestly, how many of you guys wanted Monsters 2, Nemo 2, Cars 2, all before Incredibles 2?

If Bird returns to the director's chair in INCREDIBLES 2, it will most likely be my most anticipated movie of all time. No joke.
