The gang's all here: ‘The Incredibles’ will soon return to the big screen in a sequel.
Superhero family returns after almost 10 years.
The superhero family will soon return to theatres in a sequel helmed by Brad Bird, the director behind the original movie, Disney has announced.
In contrast with several other Pixar movies, many of which quickly became multi-feature franchises, The Incredibles defied the sequel trend for a full decade. But after most fans had given up hope, Disney has announced that it is bringing the superhero family back to the big screen.
Released in 2004, The Incredibles captivated older and younger audiences alike through the story of Bob and Helen Parr, two former superheroes who settle down to start a family. Their peaceful suburban life is disturbed by the arrival of a new villain, Syndrome, and his deadly robots.
Disney, which has owned Pixar since 2006, did not specify a release date for the sequel. In the meantime, Brad Bird will wrap up Tomorrowland, a science-fiction movie starring George Clooney and Hugh Laurie, which is due in theatres in May 2015.
Disney also announced that it has added a third Cars movie to its production schedule. The studios are not planning on any Pixar releases in 2014 and are instead focusing on The Good Dinosaur, slated for release in 2015. For the Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory, fans will have to wait until June 2016. – AFP Relaxnews
