Brad Bird’s The Incredibles 2 is coming in 2019!
The Walt Disney Company has announced a flurry of new release dates, including four new Marvel movies and a number of animated and live-action films. Among those announcements comes one that fans have been waiting years for: The Incredibles 2 will be released on June 21, 2019!
The sequel will debut fifteen years after the original film with writer/director Brad Bird set to return to the helm.
“I had a bunch of ideas that I wanted to put in ‘The Incredibles,'” Bird told us earlier this year, “but they just didn’t fit. Certain ideas fit, but other things make you go, ‘This is great, but I’d have to give up two other things that matter more to me to get this other thing in.’ So there were a pile of ideas left over from ‘The Incredibles,’ but it’s not a big thing. There were little scenes and things that I was interested in. I wanted to come up with sort of an over-arching idea that connected to the first film that went somewhere different. That’s the one that took a little more time.”
It has yet to be confirmed which cast members will return for the sequel, but Samuel L. Jackson, who provided the voice of Frozone in the first film, previously said he thinks he’ll return. The first film also featured the voice talent of Craig T. Nelson as Mr. Incredible, Holly Hunter as Elastigirl, Sarah Vowell as Violet, Spencer Fox as Dash, Jason Lee as Syndrome, and Brad Bird as Edna Mode.
