Brad Bird Incredibles 2 Interview

Last week, I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with director Brad Bird and producers Nicole Paradis Grindle and John Walker about their new film Incredibles 2. We talked about the reason to make an Incredibles sequel, the different variations the story took through development, Bird’s thoughts on The Iron Giant in Ready Player One, the possibility of a Jack-Jack/Edna short film, the influence of Jonny Quest and Outer Limits on this movie, the unique collaboration with artist Eric Tan, and much more.

This interview is spoiler-free, so feel free to read it before or after you see the movie in theaters this weekend!

Disney ended up being burned by some early box office predictions for Solo: A Star Wars Story, but I have a feeling the Mouse House isn’t going to encounter those same problems with Incredibles 2 when the superhero sequel hits theaters later this week. New Incredibles 2 tracking indicates that the long-awaited movie could break the record for the highest-grossing domestic opening weekend of all time for an animated film. Keep reading to find out how much the new movie is expected to pull in this weekend. Read More »

Trolls World Tour

Trolls came out in 2016, and it’s taken me this long to get Justin Timberlake‘s “Can’t Stop The Feeling” song from the film out of my head. But my relief was short-lived, because DreamWorks Animation just lodged that song back in my brain again by announcing the official title of the second movie in the franchise: Trolls World Tour. Read more about the upcoming sequel, as well as a new project they’re working on called Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts. Read More »

Real Ghostbusters Action Figures

The Real Ghostbusters is one of the best animated TV series adaptations of a motion picture. After airing for five seasons from 1986 to 1991, it’s still one of the most revered and beloved Saturday morning cartoons. And now the animated versions of everyone’s favorite paranormal exterminators are finally getting a new line of action figures.

Diamond Select Toys has been releasing a spectacular line of Ghostbusters figures over the past couple years. But they’ve all been tied to both of the Ghostbusters movies. But now they’re giving The Real Ghostbusters their own detailed action figures later this year. Check out a preview of them below. Read More »

looney tunes revival

What’s up, Doc? Well, just the greatest news that could arrive for classic animation lovers. Warner Bros.’s staple of short film animation, Looney Tunes, is coming back to TV. And not just TV — the Looney Tunes revival will be made available on “all screens,” meaning the classic animated characters of Looney Tunes will be coming to a digital and mobile screen near you.

The charms of Pixar Animation Studios’ first wave of original films have been replaced in the 2010s by a barrage of sequels. Their early films felt fresh. Even though the company’s third film was the beloved Toy Story 2, Pixar avoided the Hollywood impulse of turning into a sequel factory. But recently, they’ve made Cars 2, Cars 3, Monsters University, and Finding Dory, which mostly failed to live up to expectations.

Now, we have Incredibles 2, whose writer/director Brad Bird is only a few years removed from the live-action flop Tomorrowland. So, it’s not wrong to wonder if the new adventures of the superheroic Parr family would feel creatively uninspired. Happily, while Incredibles 2 doesn’t reach the same heights as the 2004 original, it’s more intelligent than other recent sequels.

dean deblois interview

The How To Train Your Dragon trilogy is coming to an end, and it will probably make you cry. No, not over Hiccup’s glorious new beard (though that is worth shedding a few awestruck tears over), but over the bold and life-affirming story of friendship between a boy and his dragon that director Dean DeBlois has been building for the past decade.

We spoke to DeBlois about How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, and how the third and final film of the DreamWorks franchise will explain why “dragons are no more.” And yes, we did ask about Hiccup’s beard. Read More »

Brad Bird has a new sequel hitting theaters soon, the long-awaited Incredibles 2. That’s exciting, but if you were hoping for more Bird sequels – specifically Iron Giant 2 or Ratatouille 2 – you shouldn’t get your hopes up.

Incredibles 2 Featurette

If you can’t wait to see Pixar Animation bring back The Incredibles for another round of superheroics, we have something that might hold you over until then.

A new Incredibles 2 featurette has arrived online to set the stage for the animated sequel that brings back Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl along with their kids Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack as they deal with the unique trials and tribulations of being a family where everyone just so happens to have super powers. There’s plenty of new footage on display here, but it borders on the point of showing a little too much, so if you’re already sold on this movie, then you might not want to watch. Otherwise, enjoy!
