Brad Bird Talks The Incredibles 2 & Star Wars

A new Incredibles movie is on its way and writer/director Brad Bird is sharing new information on what we can expect and details on his possible involvement with the Star Wars franchise.

Fans have been waiting for an Incredibles sequel for over ten years. The tale of the animated superhero family is one of Pixar Studios' most financially successful films, meaning the sequel would be a particularly good move.

Fans will finally be getting their wish, but what is the status of the sequel?

While promoting his new film, Tomorrowland, Brad Bird revealed to Collider that he is currently in the process of working on The Incredibles II script saying:

"I had a lot of ideas for the original Incredibles that I didn't get a chance to use, that I like. I have ideas that I wanted to pursue a little bit and there wasn't enough time in Incredibles. There are new ideas I have, and I think there are enough of those together to make an interesting movie."

He went on to say that he feels like 'The Incredibles 2 will be his next film after Tomorrowland'. Depending on how long the writing process takes, this could possibly mean the film will be arriving in theaters as early as 2017.

The Incredibles sequel may have to compete for Brad Bird's attention against another big franchise. With Josh Trank no longer directing the 2018 Star Wars' anthology project, Bird was asked if he was going to be taking over the film, to which he responded:

"Well [LucasFilm President] Kathy [Kennedy] and I have discussed the possibility of- I mean she's basically saying this is a very large sandbox and other people can play in it. I was particularly attracted to the idea of picking up and- J.J. got very excited about the notion of shaping the next trilogy, and that idea was interesting to me too. But I kind of- I'm writing the sequel to The Incredibles and I can't think too much farther beyond that. I have others things I want to do as well."

Taking on the Star Wars project would not come as too much of a surprise, considering he was on the brink of directing Star Wars: Episode 7. He ultimately decided it would be 'too much' with the challenge of bringing Tommorowland to life. We all have to wait and see about which film he decides to take on.
