It has been over a decade since “The Incredibles” was released in theatres. Just when fans thought that there would not be a sequel to one of the most-loved Pixar animated films, Brad Bird recently confirmed that a sequel is currently in the works. What can fans expect from Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“The Incredibles” fans may have already known by now that a sequel to the Pixar animated film is already in the works. Bird, who wrote and directed the first movie, recently revealed that he has started writing the script for upcoming movie sequel.
“I’m just starting to write it, so we’ll see what happens,” Bird told The Independent.
Bird’s statements caused fans to begin casting their speculations over the sequel and whether or not it could surpass the success of the first “Incredibles” movie. Bird admitted that making a sequel is sometimes a risk. He compared it with the feeling of being thrown in a new pool where you have to learn how to swim in it. He also expressed that he is excited to be reunited with the characters from the animated film.
Bird also revealed that “The Incredibles 2” will not have any grand special effects, as he believes that the “greatest special effect is caring about a character.” He said that most movies nowadays seem to forget that and become deeply engrossed with the special effects that they forget to focus on the characters of the movie and how they would relate with the audience.
Meanwhile, Cross Map reported that the plot would revolve around the Parr children this time, as Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl would not be as active as they once were. This would make sense because there are rumors that “The Incredibles” sequel will take place 12 years from its first movie, which makes Dash, Violet and Jack-Jack older than they were in the first franchise.
The movie is also said to center on Jack-Jack, whose power surprised everyone at the end of the movie and is said to be greater than the rest of the Parr family. Jack-Jack will be seen struggling with controlling his powers, as a villain comes in and tries to use him for evil.
“The Incredibles 2” rumored release date is in 2017 or 2018. Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates.
