Pixar to re-release The Incredibles and Ratatouille in 3D

Mar. 17, 2014by:

Pixar’s director of 3D production, Josh Hollander, announced via the 3D Creative Summit in London that the Disney-owned studio is working on a 3D re-release of both THE INCREDIBLES and RATATOUILLE, although no specific date was given. He stated that these films would follow 3D re-releases of TOY STORY, TOY STORY 2, FINDING NEMO, and MONSTERS, INC.

For both films, Hollander said they are trying to "figure out exactly what the release strategy for that will be." Whatever that means. Hollander also went on to discuss the medium of 3D and how it has alienated some viewers with unnecessary usage (outside Pixar, of course), which is ironic, as the same argument could be made for THE INCREDIBLES and RATATOUILLE.

“I think that we as an industry may have lost some of our audience for 3D with releases that didn’t beg for the medium or didn’t warrant the medium or didn’t use the median in a nuanced and sophisticated and comfortable way. I think it’s possible that we drove some folks away from 3D with the higher ticket price or whatever else. But I also think that as the industry settles on a more nuanced approach, I really hope and believe that the audiences will return.”

While I've settled into 3D for the "bigger" new films that hit the market, the re-release market is another matter. As obnoxious as post-conversion is already, at least with newer films they can plan on that post-conversion and shoot for it to an extent, even if it's not in actual 3D. Converting old films that never had any chance of seeing a 3D release just feels like an experimental gimmick. Granted, animated films fare MUCH better on that scale, but still, why not pour your efforts into newer features? Hollander mentioned that they are working on 3D for the upcoming original Pixar release INSIDE OUT, which is fine (and expected), but I don't see the need to continue to scour the catalog.

What do you think? Do you want to see more of Pixar's old catalog converted to 3D?

Pixar's next film, INSIDE OUT, is set for June 19, 2015 with THE GOOD DINOSAUR to follow on November 25, 2015, and then FINDING DORY on June 17, 2016.

That's a big ol "waste of time" vote here...

Rather see Incredibles 2 than wasting time on an essentially dead format.

Like most everyone else, I would love to see Incredibles 2 get made. Come on, we've all knew what happened to the superheroes, but what about the old supervillains? Is Bomb Voyage still in lockup somewhere? What kind of people was responsible for bringing those super criminals to justice when superheroics were banned?

I don't it as much if I never saw the film in theaters such as The Incredibles...which I've only seen it once. Hate it when they do it for films that already made a ton of money and it's a cash grab

I have to say, every time i watch Incredibles, i think how cool it would be in 3D. this film was created with a style that lends itself to 3d. cannot WAIT to see that jungle chase and battle!

Would totally go see them both. Am not against the 3D conversion of these two films in any way shape or form. I think that an animated film that would be really interesting to see converted into 3D is Dreamworks' The Prince of Egypt. Imagine the angel of death sequence, or the parting of the red sea, or the chariot race...

It's inevitable

and Pixar was forced to rejig its schedule, which means they're not releasing a movie this year. That means they need some kind of stopgap. I'd prefer to be reading about a possible INCREDIBLES 2 but it's not surprising.

As you mentioned CGI animated movies hold up to a 3-D conversion a lot better than conventional films, or even cel animated movies. It would be fun to see either of those movies back on the big screen. They hold up great.

I would have no problem with seeing these films again; especially in 3D. Maybe if The Incredibles does really well, then maybe it will fast track a sequel that is taking forever for some reason.

My understanding with the Incredibles sequel is that Pixar won't do it without Brad Bird and that he doesn't feel like he has a good enough idea to make it yet. It's my favorite Pixar movie but the chances of it being as good as the first without an enthusiastic Brad Bird at the helm seen slim to none. And I loved Ratatouille and MI:4, so I think it's just as well.

Maybe one day he'll have a good enough story to be motivated by.
