Will There Be an Incredibles 3? Well, Director Brad Bird Hasn't Ruled It Out
After waiting 14 years for a new film in the Incredibles franchise, fans can't help but wonder - will they get another movie in this lifetime? Well, the official answer is still up in the air, but director Brad Bird definitely isn't saying no. According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bird discussed what propelled him to pursue Incredibles 2 in the first place and what he plans to do with plot ideas that didn't make it into the sequel.

The 2004 original, The Incredibles, left audiences with unanswered questions about the family's fate and Jack-Jack's powers, giving Bird more material and the perfect foundation on which to build the follow-up film. Now, over a decade later, Bird could have the same dilemma. After Pixar changed the release date of Incredibles 2, Bird had to scrap some of his original ideas for the movie, comparing the process to a scene from I Love Lucy.

‘The Incredibles 2': In What Year Does the Series Take Place?

‘The Incredibles 2': In What Year Does the Series Take Place?
“The Incredibles 2” and its predecessor “The Incredibles” take place in a world pretty much like ours, with the key difference being for a while at least, superheroes were as common as they are in comic books. And the similarities to our world have long made fans wonder when, exactly, all this is taking place. The bad news is that both movies are pretty vague about that question. The good news is that they still have a lot of hints and clues that seem to suggest a specific, highly retro time frame. Let’s take a closer look.

The first thing to remember is the context: 15 years before the start of the original film, superheroic activities were made illegal after people hurt during super-events stared suing the heroes for damages. The heroes were then forced into retirement as part of a sort of witness protection program. Furthermore, “The Incredibles 2” picks up

Jennifer Lee, Pete Docter to Run Disney Animation, Pixar

Jennifer Lee, Pete Docter to Run Disney Animation, Pixar
Jennifer Lee and Pete Docter will split John Lasseter’s duties at Disney, as the studio’s animation division tries to move forward after the tumultuous departure of its leading creative force.

Lee, the director of “Frozen,” has been named chief creative officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios, while Docter, the director of “Inside Out,” has been tapped as chief creative officer at Pixar Animation Studios. Both had been rumored to be in the running to assume those roles.

Despite being credited with reviving Disney’s animation offerings and helping create film classics such as “Up” and “The Incredibles,” Lasseter is leaving the company under a cloud. Last fall, he took an extended sabbatical after allegations broke that he engaged in inappropriate workplace behavior. Earlier this month, Disney announced that Lasseter would leave the studio at the end of the year. He is consulting for Disney, but will not have

The Pixar Generation Just Helped ‘Incredibles 2’ Make Box Office History

Pixar movies have largely been surefire family hits for more than 20 years, but this past weekend “The Incredibles 2” took it even further with one of the top ten biggest movie openings of all time. And it’s all thanks to the generation that fawned over the first installment nearly 15 years ago.

“This weekend really shows that Pixar has entered the second generation in terms of its audience,” said BoxOffice analyst Shawn Robbins. “That long time gap in between sequels has made these films a must-see beyond the family crowd.”

Sure, the kids who just got out of school and their parents are still Pixar’s main moneymakers. However, those aged 17-24 counted for a total audience share of 16 percent, higher than that of teens’ 14 percent.

Forty percent of moviegoers polled by comScore’s PosTrak were in the 18-24 age group, tying “Finding Dory” for the age group’s highest audience

Don't Mess With the Parrs: Incredibles 2 Is Already Smashing Box Office Records
Incredibles 2 is having a super run at the box office. The long-awaited sequel to Pixar's The Incredibles finally came out on June 15 and dominated the box office without a backward glance. Which absolutely no one is surprised by, because we didn't wait 14 years just to let it flop.

It has shattered box office records with its opening weekend debut alone, now holding the record for the highest opening weekend for an animated film. The family-friendly film made $70 million on its Friday debut - which matches The Incredibles' total opening weekend - before going up to $180 million total at the domestic box office over the weekend. It beat previous animation record-holder Finding Dory, which was also a Pixar sequel and made $135 million in its opening weekend.

Industry analysts expected the film to come in with a $120 million to $140 million debut, and audiences proved that was a vast underestimation.

Hunger Games' Amandla Stenberg Comes Out as Gay & Says Mila Kunis Was Her First 'Lesbian Crush'
Nothing but pride! Amandla Stenberg, who identifies as non-binary and came out as bisexual in 2016, confirmed in an interview with Wonderland Magazine that she is gay.

“I was so overcome with this profound sense of relief when I realized that I’m gay,” the actress, 19, told musician King Princess in an interview published on Monday. “Not bi, not pan[sexual], but gay — with a romantic love for women. All of the things that felt so internally contrary to my truest self were rectified as I unraveled a long web of denial and self-deprivation.”

'Incredibles 2' Smashes Box Office Records

Brad Bird's new animated adventure soared on the big screen. Over the weekend, Incredibles 2 earned an estimated $180 million at the box office, per CNN Money, absolutely smashing the record for animated titles previously held by Finding Dory, which made $135 million during its opening frame in 2016.

You Should Read This Before Sticking Around For an Incredibles 2 Postcredits Scene

You Should Read This Before Sticking Around For an Incredibles 2 Postcredits Scene
At long last, the sequel to 2004's The Incredibles has arrived. Incredibles 2 is not only yet another spectacular animated film to add to Disney Pixar's ever-growing roster but also a pretty solid superhero flick in general. That being said, it differs from recent Marvel and DC movies in a pretty big way - there are no postcredit scenes.

Although movies based on comic books have become known for bonus scenes squeezed in after the credits thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Incredibles 2 doesn't bother including extra footage that hints at future installments of the franchise in cheeky ways, connects the Parr family to other Disney Pixar properties, or even teases a thrilling new villain to look forward to. As we find out earlier on in the movie, it doesn't need a scene after the credits to do so.

Warning: Spoilers for Incredibles 2 ahead!

‘The Incredibles 2’ breaks box office records, while ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ cruises past $2 billion mark

It’s been a good week for superheroes at the box office, which almost goes without saying at this point. “The Incredibles 2” opened on June 15 as already the fourth superhero film of 2018 so far, but the first that isn’t based on Marvel Comics characters. The Disney/Pixar sequel to the Oscar winning “The Incredibles” from 2004 broke records, opening with a remarkable $180 million in the Us, the biggest debut ever for an animated film and the eighth biggest debut for any film in history. Incidentally, 6 of the top 10 biggest openings now belong to superheroes, and 9 of the top 10 belong to Disney.

The opening weekend total for “The Incredibles 2” is already 69% of what the original film grossed over its entire run at the domestic box office ($261 million). That film accumulated a total of $633 million worldwide. Overseas, “Incredibles 2” made $51.5 million in its debut, but the film has only opened in about a quarter of foreign markets,

What Did You All Think of Incredibles 2!? Also I've Included a Video Breakdown of Easter Eggs

We've waited fourteen long years for a sequel to The Incredibles. It's kinda crazy that we actually got a sequel. What's even crazier is that Pixar and director Brad Bird actually delivered an awesome sequel! In my opinion, Incredibles 2 was a perfect sequel to the first film and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I took my kids to see it over the weekend and they absolutely loved it!

What's funny is that after the movie ended, one of my daughters says to me, "hopefully we don't have to wait another fourteen years for another sequel." She's thirteen years old! She wasn't even born when the first movie came out and that weirded me by out a bit. When I pointed that out to her she just busted up laughing. 

Anyway, I had a blast watching Incredibles 2. The action was amazing, the story was so much fun,

How ‘Incredibles’ Became Animation’s Hottest Franchise

Incredible doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Disney-Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” shattered box office expectations with its $180 million domestic debut — the eighth-best opening weekend of all time in North America and the biggest ever launch for an animated film. Overseas, it picked up an additional $51.5 million for a global start of $231.5 million.

Earlier this week, projections showed the superhero sequel opening in line with 2016’s “Finding Dory,” which previously held the title of best animated debut with $135 million. By Friday morning, numbers from “Incredibles 2’s” Thursday night previews began to roll in, and estimates shot up to a staggering $175 million.

“This is a number nobody would have expected even four days ago,” box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian said. “Nobody wants to go out on a big limb. If you said that it would open to almost $200 million two weeks ago, people would have scoffed at that.

‘Incredibles 2’: Will Pixar sequel win Oscar bookend to ‘The Incredibles’?

‘Incredibles 2’: Will Pixar sequel win Oscar bookend to ‘The Incredibles’?
Incredibles 2” opened this weekend to a record haul for an animated feature, taking in a whopping $180 million. That easily eclipsed the benchmark of $135 million set by “Finding Dory” in 2016. Executives at Pixar are probably wishing they hadn’t taken 14 years to produce a sequel to “The Incredibles,” which won the 2014 Oscar as Best Animated Feature.

The category was only four years old then, and “The Incredibles” was the second Pixar picture in a row to win following “Finding Nemo” in 2003. Since those back-to-back victories, this animation powerhouse has claimed this Academy Award another seven times: “Ratatouille” (2007); “Wall-e” (2008); “Up” (2009); Toy Story 3″ (2010); “Brave” (2012); “Inside Out” (2015); and “Coco” (2017).

‘Incredibles 2’ Was Almost Worth the Wait

I’ve never understood Pixar’s apparent reluctance to make a sequel to The Incredibles (2004). At the time of its release, it was probably their best movie other than Finding Nemo (2003). They had already made their first sequel with Toy Story 2 (1999) and, with respect to that franchise, The Incredibles had more potential as an ongoing series than that one ever did. Superheroes were already revving up to their current place of dominance at the box office (likely the reason why the studio was eager to make that film in the first place). The first two X-Men movies had
