Earlier today, at a meeting with shareholders and D23 members, Robert Iger, Disney Chairman and CEO, announced that Pixar is developing a sequel to The Incredibles.
It has been a decade since the original superhero adventure hit the big screen, and fans have wanted a sequel to ever since. Brad Bird, the original film’s writer/director, has said he’d be on board for a sequel if the story they came up with was great, but there has been no confirmation as to his involvement yet.
I thought the original move was great. It might be that I just love adventure stories and/or I just love superheroes (both make me bias), but it’s about time this well-loved movie gets its sequel. I mean there have been a LOT of less-deserving films getting sequels over the last ten years, so it’s nice to see a great movie get one too.
