Howdy ladies and gents, it is time for some film news yet again! Now every once in a while there is a small yet important news story that break which is worth talking about and today I just saw one that I had to bring up on my blog. The following info comes from superherohype:
“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 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. There’s no confirmation yet of Bird’s involvement, but he remains closely tied to Disney. His next film, the live-action Tomorrowland, arrives from Walt Disney Pictures on May 22, 2015.”
The best way to summarise my feelings on this is with the words by the great M. Bison in this video below:
This video says it all.
Finally! FINALLY! This is the dream of every Pixar fan for the last 10 YEARS. Think about, what Pixar film leads itself to a sequel more than The Incredibles? And What film in the Pixar filmography have people been demanding for more so than The Incredibles? The answer to both of those questions is none. The Incredibles is the much-loved Pixar animated film from 2004 which basically gave us the Fantastic Four before Marvel did and presented some of the coolest stuff ever in the form of its superhero and family storylines, the amazing animation, great cinematography and groovy soundtrack. When it ended it practically BEGGED for a sequel, but instead Pixar gave us ever other sequel/prequel that NO ONE wanted. Now granted Toy Story 3 is the exception to the rule because that film was awesome. However we got Cars 2 (why?), Monsters University (decent but unnecessary) and the upcoming Finding Dori (again why?), when fans really just wanted to see The Incredibles 2.
So it looks like Pixar have finally broke and decided to give the people what they want and I couldn’t be happier. Sure it’ll be a mammoth task to try and match or ever surpass the original, but hell I wanna see Pixar try.
