First up, Cars 3 is in the works, to the delight of small boys everywhere—especially those uninterested in the spinoff film Planes from 2013.
Second, and much more exciting, we have word of The Incredibles 2! I considered this to be newsworthy on its own, even before I found out that Brad Bird is involved. Please be the director, please be the director!
The studio has not officially confirmed whether The Incredibles 2 will be a sequel or a prequel, but it is certainly easy to imagine either scenario working well. A prequel could take place during the earlier "heroic age" and flesh out the story of how superheroes lost public favor. A sequel could take place immediately following the original movie, having the family battle The Underminer. It would be great to see Jack-Jack in action with the team.
Pixar has hit nothing but home runs for all ages. Their next offerings on the table are Finding Dory (yep, a Finding Nemo sequel), Inside Out, and The Good Dinosaur.
Does this news have you wearing a cape and running around the house yet? It should! Especially that "Brad Bird" name up there!
