Of all the Pixar films, The Incredibles is arguably one of the most popular, and it’s also the one that many have wanted a sequel for for years. Well, it’s finally coming in 2018. And at D23, we got some more information on it from Pixar Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter. Who noted that the sequel actually picks up right after the original film. Literally.
“It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece. You know that at the end of the first movie when he comes up and you see the family dressed as superheroes, well that’s where start this movie.”
That’s ironic for many reasons. Usually when a film goes a long time without a sequel, they try and show the gap in time in the show, but that’s not the case here. As for what the story will be about, he noted at the event that Elastigirl will be more of the focus this time. But as for what happens, he’s being vague:
“One of the unique things about The Incredibles is it’s really a story of a family set in the world of superheroes. This one carries on that theme,” Lasseter said. “It’s awesome, the idea we came up with — simple as that. … We love to really look at our own lives and look at what’s going on, and find themes that we know will resonate with the audience.”
Incredibles 2 arrives June 15th, 2018.
