The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3: Disney confirms movie sequels in the pipeline
The Incredibles scriptwriter Brad Bird is penning a sequel to the 2004 film
Disney has announced a sequel for the hugely popular Pixar film The Incredibles.
Bob Iger, Disney President, confirmed at the Disney Investor's Meeting on Tuesday that The Incredibles 2 is in development.
He also revealed that Cars 3 is in the pipeline, but gave little away about the forthcoming Star Wars 7.
Brad Bird, who directed and wrote double Oscar-winner The Incredibles, is currently writing the script for a follow-up to the 2004 film.
Bird had previously been hesitant about penning a sequel. According to Slashfilm, he said at 2007 WonderCon: “Pixar does not look at sequels as a financial plan. We feel we have a relation ship with the audience and that they believe in each movie we put out. We believe completely in every movie we put out.
"If I can come up with a story that is as good or better than that first film, then I’d love to return to that world, but it would have to be story first."
But it appears he has found inspiration to continue the story about a family of retired superheroes, who are forced to conceal their powers and lead a normal life.
Pixar is also currently working on Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory, as well as movies The Good Dinosaur and Inside Out.
Meanwhile, Pixar plans to re-release the original The Incredibles and Ratatouille in 3D, Digital Spy reported.
Speaking at the 3D Creative Summit in London, Pixar's director of 3D production Josh Hollander told the audience: "Right now we're working on The Incredibles, which is a lot of fun in 3D. I'm not sure what the release strategy for it will be.
“It's been an interesting challenge to work on technology because - while the film was released 10 years ago - the technology is even older as it took four years to make.”
The release date for The Incredibles 2 has not been announced.
