Brad Bird's THE INCREDIBLES 2 Will Be Set One Minute After The First Film Ends
The Incredibles is my favorite Pixar film and when I heard Brad Bird was coming back to write and direct the sequel, I exploded with excitement! It's hard to believe that it's been fourteen years since the first movie was released, it seems just like yesterday when I saw it for the first time.
Even though fans have had to wait that long for a sequel, for the characters in the movie only one minute will have passed for them! That's right, according to Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter, The Incredibles 2 starts immediately after the events of the first Film. During an interview with IGN he said:
"It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on. 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."
Lasseter goes on to say that The sequel will tell "such a special story" and then talks about what makes The Incredibles a unique story, saying:
"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. 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."
I love hearing this kind of stuff because it just gets me excited about learning more. I know we are a long way away from this sequel being released, but it's never too early for a fan to get excited about something.
