Writer/director Brad Bird has revealed that he has recently started work on the script for Disney-Pixar’s sequel to 2004’s animated action comedy The Incredibles. Bird told NPR’s Ask Me Another, “It’s percolating. I mean, I’m just starting to write it, so we’ll see what happens.”
Pixar Animation Studios, an innovator in the field of CGI rendering since its inception as a spin-off from George Lucas’ Industrial Light and Magic special effects department, revolutionised animated films with the release of Toy Story in 1995, the world’s first fully CGI movie. Since then, CGI animation has become the standard, influencing the successful Shrek and Ice Age franchises, and even bleeding through to television, with traditionally animated sitcoms The Simpsons, Family Guy, and South Park adopting computer animation in recent years.
However, despite Pixar changing the landscape of animation, since its purchase by Disney it has become locked into a cycle of releasing sequels, rather than risk new intellectual properties, with Toy Story 4, Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory, and Cars 3 joining The Incredibles 2 on the follow-up list.
