I hope not. I was a great film, but does it really warrant a sequel? I don't think so. They've said everything they needed to say about the family.

I would've said the same thing about "Toy Story."

The thing that made The Incredibles incredible was that it operated on so many levels thematically. It was so much more than a superhero film. A 2nd film would have to match that depth imo.
Funny...my little nephew thought the same thing becasue of the introduction of the Underminer at the end of the film.

They didn't really need to do a sequel of that film, either. The first film wrapped things up nicely. Much of TS2 for me felt like they just swapped Woody for Buzz, right down to the missing arm.

Toy Story 2 wasn't that bad. The animation was really well done, and the story plot wasn't that bad either. Now, had Disney/Pixar decided to follow through with the proposed Toy Story 3, that would have been a different case. Sequals are rarely good.

I never heard Bird express any sentiment toward a sequel, but I did not work in-house at Pixar, so those guys up there are the ones that would know for sure. That having been said, my feelings are that it was nearly a perfect film, and I'd prefer to leave it at that. I worked on the original Men in Black, and look how much they screwed up the sequel.

The way I see it is that I have absolutely no problem with a sequel if it's as good or better than the original. Who wouldn't want to see a follow-up to their adventures if the quality is there?

The Incredibles already won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, and continued Pixar's amazing success in CGI features.

Don't mess with success.

Pixar's got a full plate at the moment. I doubt if anyone's even discussed a sequel.

By the way, we'll be at Disney Feature Animation tomorrow discussing the merits of CGI vs traditional animation. Should be fun.

During all the Oscar stuffs Brad Bird was asked if he would so a sequel to the Incredibles..he seemed open to the possiblity but of
course "possible" and "actual" are two different things.....could happen...could not....

Sequels can be a good thing if done right...I enjoyed TS2 quite a lot. Years before Incredibles came out there were promo descriptions that suggested stuff like "..superheros dealing with ordinary problems..like when his daughter is found dating his arch enemy's son".... there could be some fun possiblities in a sequel...again if done well...

I've been at a couple different things where Brad was clearly at least open to the idea of an Incredibles sequel.

"The Incredibles" could even be spun off into a weekly series. Sort of like an animated "M.A.S.H.".

Besides, Disney doesn't need to do anymore TV spin-offs from their films.

Perhaps Brad can consider a sequel after he finishes his chores on "Ratatouille."

By the way, "Ratatouille" was screened yesterday at Disney. The movie looks darn good. The Pixar streak continues.

My buddy was at one of ASIFA screenings for The Incredibles, originally Brad was to be on hand at the first one but something came up so they actually did an additional re-screening that Brad was able to attend.

I think Brad Bird is a great guy and I've had the opportunity to meet him and talk, he's full of energy and has a great out look for the art of animation.

Well here's what happened to my buddy, he had his hand up for who knows how long to ask Brad a question...a two parter.

One being "Hey are there going to be any out takes from The Incredibles, you know like we've seen in the past?".

And two "Is there a chance that we'll be seeing an Incredibles 2 anytime soon?".

Let me just say this...Brad ripped him a new one.

Mr. Bird is not a big fan of repeating what's already been done before, so he wasn't exactly a big fan of doing a "bloopers reel" or adding "out-takes", I myself thought that was getting a bit old anyways.

It was funny for a little while, the "Jack-Jack Attack" was a much nicer addition to the dvd.

As well...Brad isn't a big fan of potentially doing a sequel for The Incredibles, again this is based on my friends questioning.

Needless to say my buddy felt like a real jerk for even asking…

Although I personally would love to see Brad sit down and hash out another script for The Incredibles it's only going to be kick ass if he's the one in control of the script and the direction.

Well, there already is an Incredibles 2:

"The Incredibles II: The Rise of the Underminer." Of course, it's the video game that was released, but it's the closest you get to taking on a sequel.

Though it's interesting conjecture that when noone hears anything about what PIXAR has coming up, they jump on this 'sequel' bandwagon.

I've read all kinds of fan speculation about Mike and Sulley loose in the human world, or Nemo and Marlin help Dory try to find 'her' family.

Someday I'll have to do my gag storyboard idea where Mr Ray is swimming off with Nemo and the school of fish, and as they drift off, suddenly a motorboat comes by and just grinds them all up-and we just cut to everyone with their mouths open.

The humans have just waged war on the fish! And with more water than land, the fish will have the advantage!

You are correct, sir.

Pixar already has an impressive line up of new projects. They really don't need to do the sequel thing no matter how profitable it might be in the short term.

If we ever see a revisit to "The Incredibles," it won't be anytime soon.

I second this. I hate it -- HATE IT -- when I finally see a good film, and the first thing people want to do is bleed it dry via recycling its success. [puke]

Here's an idea: how about we make a film with a new story and new characters that people can enjoy just as much, if not more.

Perhaps he changed his mind on the issue, which is his right.....kinda like George Lucas with Star Wars.."im never doing anymore...wait I'm doing prequels...I intended to make 9....no I never said that...oh wait yes I did"

funny that most people here are opposed to a sequel to "the incredibles" since this is a property that lends itself to many new adventures (just as the open ending told us). i'd love to see more if made by the original studio and team.

That's an unoriginal sentiment.

If they never make another Incredibles movie I won't miss it, but if they do make one I definitely won't miss it (two different meanings of "miss it" operating here). These are comic book superheroes, people. Thank goodness there wasn't just one issue of Superman or Batman or Spiderman comic books. When subsequent issues of each came out did people say, "That is sooooo unoriginal. One issue was enough. Can't they come up with something new?"

I'll emphasize again that I've seen Brad Bird on two occasions at least appear open to the idea of more Incredibles adventures.

i'm not one to embrace feature sequels unless they're made by a feature studio but superheroes are episodic by nature (the monthly comic book). "the incredibles" ARE superheroes (a variation on the "fantastic 4"). it's a good candidate for sequels or a tv series.

Like I said, if they never make a "sequel" to The Incredibles (and "sequel" might be the wrong word) then I won't complain. If they do I will watch it. It is entirely faithless to say, "Well, sure, Toy Story 2 came out good but there's no way a second Incredibles could."

If you make more Incredibles movies it turns a great character piece into a sitcom.

I'm sure a few years ago people thought "More Lilo & Stitch? What could possibly go wrong there? I'll never get sick of those characters!"

Well more Lilo and Stitch is just a given since Disney MUST make dozens of sequels to every film in their library whether it works or not....on the Little Mermaid DVD there are previews for Cinderella 3...the evil step mother gets the magic wand and reverses time....I wish I was lieing...and Little Mermaid 3......joy!!!!

It really, really is an "it depends" situation. Would I like to come back and learn more about the lives of the characters? Yes. Would I like it to be a rehash of the past? Certainly not.

I would want to see serious change in their lives if we were to come back and visit the Parr family again. Make it 10-15 years after the events of the first film, and deal with how growing older has effected everyone. Maybe that might be a good movie.

But run through a villian-of-the-week like a cheesy TV show? No thanks. I'll be over by the pool reading pork futures.

It's all up to Brad Bird. If he thinks of a good story, let him tell it. If he doesn't want to, that's fine by me.

INCREDIBLES II: Script by Alan Moore, with no PIXAR input except for the animation. Rated R.

That would be cool.
