Disney Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger today announced that Pixar Animation Studios is developing a big screen sequel to Brad Bird’s 2004 superhero adventure The Incredibles. The announcement was made during a meeting of shareholders and D23 Members during the company’s annual meeting today in Portland, Oregon.
A sequel to The Incredibles has been requested by fans (me included) for the past decade with the original film’s writer/director Brad Bird having said in the past that he’s open to another adventure, but only if it has a truly great story idea behind it. The film went on to earn $631 million in 2004.
Brad Bird is writing the superhero sequel, Iger said
Bird’s next film, the live-action Tomorrowland, arrives from Walt Disney Pictures on May 22, 2015.
The first Cars film grossed $461 million in 2006, while Cars 2 earned nearly $560 million worldwide.
Pixar’s upcoming films include 2015′s Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, and the Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory, in 2016.
