You know, there are people out there who say you can’t make a great Fantastic Four film, and I always end up confused. The reason why is pretty simple — we already got a phenomenal Fantastic Four movie over a decade ago.
I speak, of course, about Pixar’s The Incredibles.
For the longest time, we’ve been waiting for a sequel to arguably one of the best superhero films ever made. The Incredibles 2 has been in development for a while, but director Brad Bird had been pretty busy with movies like Tomorrowland and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Bird has more recently stated that he’s working on the script for the next Incredibles installment, and has said it’s his next film.
Well, yesterday we finally got some more news on the project. On the upside, we now know approximately when the film come out — the downside is that we’ll be waiting for a while. In fact, you’ll be waiting until 2019.
Considering Pixar can only make so many films at a time, and in that same news we found out Toy Story 4 was getting moved from 2017 to 2018, it shouldn’t be too much of a shock that The Incredibles 2 would end up so much further back on the schedule. I think it’ll be worth the wait though.
Because c’mon — it’s The Incredibles.
