Pixar is making The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3

Recently, we reported on Pixar Animation Studio’s progress when it came to bringing past classics back to theaters with 3D upgrades. The films of Brad Bird were in the spotlight, as Pixar was fashioning enhanced visions of The Incredibles and Ratatouille. That might have been the ideal time to reveal this new bit of news, but Disney decided to wait, to give it a little bot of breathing room.

Now it can be announced that sequels are underway for both the Incredibles and Cars franchises. The news was revealed at an annual stockholders’ meeting (and reported – amongst other places – on InsideTheMagic.net).

So, we’re back in sequel land with Pixar, even as the studio toils away on original fare like Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur. There is reason to get excited. /Film confirms that original Incredibles director Bird is working on the story for the next chapter of the Parr family. I honestly have no idea why it took this long to get an Incredibles sequel off the ground. This first movie ENDS with a set up for the next adventure, if that’s the direction that Bird wants to go. Bring on the Underminer!
I'm surprised that it has taken Brad Bird so long to get started on the Incredibles 2, since we are right in the middle of the superhero film craze right now.

Don't really care about the Cars franchise, but I understand many little kids will disagree with me on that, and Disney makes a ton of money every year through merchandise sales.

Great news about the Incredibles. I've wanted a sequel since the first time I saw it. So long as there is a good story and good script, with Brad Bird again at the helm, I am very excited.

More Edna this time, I hope.

I'm cautiously optimistic.

I'm not surprised. He always said he'd only do it if he had the right story. I wouldn't want them to do it merely to capitalize on a profitable trend -- better that they waited until genuine inspiration struck.

Brad Bird said he didn't want to do another Incredibles unless there was a good enough story reason to do one, I guess he's finally come up with something.

Throw enough money at someone who says stuff like that, and all of a sudden any story is good enough.

I'm looking forward to The Incredibles 2. I really enjoyed the first one and hope they introduce more supers time around. Did Samuel L. Jackson sign on to return?

Just announce Brave 2 already.

INCREDIBLES 2: Hooray! Finally! Woo hoo!

CARS 3: ugh.

FINALLY. The one Pixar film other than Toy Story that actually benefits from a sequel. I trust Brad Bird to give us another great film.

I actually liked Cars but the sequel sucked and I see no need for another, but it's John Lasseter's pet series, so I'm not surprised by this.

I'm looking forward to The Incredibles 2, but I'm very hesitant about Cars 3. I loved Cars, but the sequel was awful. I'm not holding out much hope for the 3rd.

Not hugely optimistic - Pixar seems to have gone a little off the boil recently with their original features, and apart from Toy Story, their sequels are particularly weak - I adored Cars, but Cars 2 was a huge disappointment. We certainly don't need Cars 3, and Incredibles 2 would have to be pretty special to match the first one...

The thing about The Incredibles is that it lends itself to a franchise. It's a superhero story. You can do an endless number of super villains. It's an open ended premise.

I'm really excited for Incredibles 2. I loved the first movie, and I've really wanted to see a sequel. It certainly deserves one more than Monsters, Inc or Cars did. I think Pixar proved it can do good sequels with Toy Story 2 & 3, so I'm hopeful Incredibles 2 will be good. I couldn't care less about Cars 3. I thought Cars one was ok, but I never bothered to watch Cars 2.

Awesome very excited to hear about Incredibles 2! I don't seem to enjoy the animated movies as much anymore, but I did love the first and am now pretty stoked to see the next one!
