Michael B. Johnson revealed Coppola previously went to Pixar while Bird and the team were working on “The Incredibles.” Now, he is with Bird again.
@BradBirdA113 nice seeing him again at Pixar since the last time he came while we were doing Incredibles – that was fun…

Coppola’s “Megalopolis” was about the situation of New York City after going through a mega-disaster. The film also revolved around an aspiration for an ideal New York, where the director described the movie as something personal for him, WhatCulture reported.
Furthermore, the film got its production very close – test shots were done in New York and meetings with possible actors already made. However, because of the September 11 bombing, the director temporarily dropped the film since it was too sensitive to continue and release it.
In 2007, Coppola promised to go back to it if something would lead him to.
“I plan to begin a process of making one personal movie after another and if something leads me back to look at that, which I’m sure it might, I’ll see what makes sense to me,” Coppola said via a report by Moviefone.
Now, it’s more than seven years. Could this be the time? Here’s to hoping it is.
As for the “Incredibles 2,” Disney-Pixar previously released its logo along with other upcoming animated films, both new and sequels. Their official Twitter account unveiled “Cars 3,” “Toy Story 4,” “Finding Dory” (a sequel of “Finding Nemo”), “The Good Dinosaur,” and “Coco.”
