News : The Incredibles 2 and another sequel for Cars (Cinéma).

(Par Patricia Leblanc)

Disney head Bob Iger at the Disney’s investors meeting today nonchalantly dropped exciting news for Pixar fans concerning new projects that are in development. Pixar is working on another Cars sequel and Brad Bird is currently working on the story for a second Incredibles film.

As unsurprising as it is for Cars to be milking their franchise until it slowly loses speed and dies, this news has reawoken The Incredibles fans’ greatest dreams about seeing the Parr family team together to fight villains. For ten years I have been fantasizing about this and it’s finally been announced.

But we all have to remember that this is animation. It takes a ridiculous amount of time to make the characters move; each frame has to be lit and textured, each character has to move smoothly, their hair is animated separately, etc. These steps can take between 2 to 5 years to complete. And this is once the script is locked, the project is financed, the environment is designed, and the pre-production is completed. If Bird is only working out the story, we can expect a LONG time to go by before seeing red suits on screen. I might have to drag my kids to the theatre, and I will probably be more excited than they will be about this.

But there’s still hope! Brad Bird has been talking about starting this project for a while. He mentioned it at the 2007 WonderCon:

I love the world. I love the characters, and if I could come with a story that was as good or better than the original, I’d go there in a second. I have pieces of things that I would love to see in a sequel, but I haven’t got them all together yet, and I certainly wouldn’t want to come out there with something that is less than the original. … Sequels are not part of the business plan at Pixar. It’s all about the filmmakers being passionate about going somewhere.”

So hopefully he’s been thinking about this long enough that the project is more advanced than we think.
