With a remastered edition of “The Iron Giant” coming soon, Brad Bird has been hitting the publicity trail. I’m very excited to see “The Iron Giant” again (coming to a theater near you via Fathom events), but I’m also thrilled that Bird is sharing a little bit about “The Incredibles 2.”
Collider had a brief interview with Bird and they discussed the progress on the most anticipated Pixar sequel in years.
According to Bird, he’s working on the script with most of it written and some story-boarding done. With the lion share of the work ahead of them, no release date has been set.
He’s brought back a lot of the same team who worked on the first, sort of a family reunion. Bird wouldn’t reveal any of the plot the team is working on, but he did mention that since the superhero space is a lot more crowded in 2015 than it was in 2004, they’re focused on the strengths of the original film like the characters, relationships, and intimate moments like that.
Sounds like Bird is on the right path. He’s definitely passionate about his animation, so I’m trusting him on this one. How about you?
