The director is finishing up Tomorrowland, the film he chose to do over Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and has started to look towards his next project.

Disney head Bob Iger dropped a big piece of news offhandedly during the Disney Investor’s Meeting today, stating that Brad Bird is working on the story for The Incredibles 2 and that Pixar is also working on a new Cars movie.
No surprise with the Cars sequel; I’m sure they will continue that franchise until it runs out of gas and stops making them money in toy stores and at theme parks. The Incredibles sequel, on the other hand, is big news, and fans should be excited that Brad Bird is involved. No other details have yet been revealed.

With each and every movie he releases, Brad Bird raises his own bar. He went from small amazing animation in The Iron Giant, to big amazing animation in The Incredibles. That was followed by transcendent animation in Ratatouille, then live action blockbuster in Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. That resume puts a ton of pressure on the director not only for his next movie, the Disney themed-Tomorrowland starring George Clooney, but anything he does next.
Two projects Bird has discussed as follow-ups are a sequel to The Incredibles, something fans have been begging for since 2004, and a new Star Wars movie. The director talked about both in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, confirming he’s constantly thinking about The Incredibles 2, would like to do that, and that Kathleen Kennedy ask him if he wanted to direct Star Wars Episode VII.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The Incredibles is a great movie. It might be the best superhero movie, and it is certainly one of the best Pixar efforts. With Pixar making sequels more often now than in the past, naturally questions arise about a follow-up to Brad Bird‘s story of a super-powered family. But we’ve never heard anything that suggests a sequel is likely to happen.
Brad Bird is starting to promote Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, his first live-action movie. While talking about that movie last week, he was asked about a possible Incredibles sequel, and his answer was simple. Pretty much the answer I think anyone would hope he’d give: he’s open to doing one, but only if the story is great. Read More »
As people continue to pester The Incredibles director Brad Bird about a possible sequel, the answers remain, for the most part, the same. Here is what Brad told AP while promoting his new film Ratatouille:
I love the world. I love the characters, and if I could come with a story that was as good or better than the original, I’d go there in a second. I have pieces of things that I would love to see in a sequel, but I haven’t got them all together yet, and I certainly wouldn’t want to come out there with something that is less than the original. … Sequels are not part of the business plan at Pixar. It’s all about the filmmakers being passionate about going somewhere.
I understand and respect Pixar’s view on sequels. Most companies now-a-days would jump at the possibility to make any kind of sequel or prequel off a popular property. And most of the time, the resulting film is bad, very bad. But I think that’s because most of the ideas don’t warrant revisiting.Â But The Incredibles is different. There are so many great places you could take the characters. There are so many more great stories that could be told. Brad, the fans want more…
