When the right story for The Incredibles comes up, Brad Bird will do a sequel

10.26.2011

One Pixar sequel that fans really want is a follow-up to THE INCREDIBLES. I say this because any time Brad Bird or the film is mentioned at least a good half of the comments bring the topic up. I don't blame them. THE INCREDIBLES is one of my favorite Pixas films and I'd love to see them on the big screen again in a new adventure.

You want talk about the sequel? Well, you got it. Brad Bird offered up some thoughts on that very subject to Movies.com. Bird commented on why we haven't gotten anything as far as movement on a sequel yet, “I think the reason it hasn’t [happened] yet is because the studio would like me to do it, if there were another Incredibles and I’ve told them that I’m not really friendly to have someone else take away my child. I would like to think that I have several good ideas that could be incorporated into a next Incredibles, but I don’t have a whole movie yet, and the last thing I want to do is do it just because it would open big, or something like that.”

Then Bird said something that made me love him even more, “I want to do it because I have something that will be as good or better than the original. Toy Story 2 was, to me, a perfect sequel, because it absolutely respected the first film but found new places to go without selling out its characters. So if I could come up with an idea that is to Incredibles that Toy Story 2 is to Toy Story, I would do it in a second.”

Praise this man. I have no problem with waiting until Bird gets the story that he wants instead of just pleasing the studio.

I have an idea

i have a ton of ideas i want to give to Mr. Bird for Incredibles 2, but like he said, its his story. He doesnt want anyone to hack out a sequel for the sake of having one and that's pretty respectful. Let's hope he does have something up his sleeve in the near future.

First off I love Pixar, the Incredibles is one of my favourites and I'd love to see them again.

But here's the problem: everyone automatically says 'do a sequel!' without thinking about what made the original SO UNIQUE: superheroes taken out of their usual setting/universe and made to live a normal, everyday existence. This was the genius of the writing and the genius of Pixar...

I think if we have a new film revolving around the family just being superheroes it won't be the same - or

I think if we have a new film revolving around the family just being superheroes it won't be the same - or even half as inventive as the original. It'll just be another 'Megamind'...

Don't get me wrong, I really liked The Incredibles, and I would love to see a second one, but it's obvious a lot of story elements were lifted right out of Watchmen. Can't they just find another great comic to pilfer and get us a new installment?

Good

I'm glad he's being selective but surely Pixar has gotten tons and tons of stories for a sequel in their mailbox, no?

Agreed

I absolutely agree with everything this man said, it's nice to see people in Hollywood that still have values and aren't just looking for a quick payday.

I do however disagree with the whole Toy Story 2 thing. I was a child when that movie released and while watching it I just didn't feel the same magic I felt every time I watch Toy Story 1. Still a good movie though.

For me, The Incredibles was the best film of that year. I would have nominated it in the main category at the oscars. I hope Brad takes his time and gets the story perfect.

I only wish more people/studios thought like him. I would love to see an Incredibles sequel, but I rather there be no sequel than a poorly made sequel. After much thought over the past year, I realized Toy Story 2 is my favorite Toy Story movie. One of the best sequels of all time.

As much as I'd love an Incredibles sequel, I do respect Bird and Pixar for not rushing one for profit.

That's why Brad Bird is the Man

I'm sure everyone and their dog has been after him to do an Incredibles 2 but he's sticking to his guns and waiting for the right story. If only John Lasseter did the same thing with Cars 2.
