A very Pixar Halloween!

Posted by Simoa • October 31, 2016

To celebrate the ghoulish day of October 31, Pixar has re-imagined horror movie posters with our favorite Pixar characters. Although “Toy Story of TERROR!” (2013) is the only Halloween themed Pixar offering, these new posters show the sinister potential in these popular and heartwarming films. Can we ever expect a full length horror movie from Emeryville (low on the gore)? Or a chilling ghost story? Let’s hope so! In the meantime, enjoy the frightfully fantastic posters. (via twitter).

So this is definitely funny rather than sinister, but a Rex that’s actually scary?! That is indeed scary.

The Incredibles 2 Is Blasting Into Cinemas Earlier Than Expected

It appears the animation Gods are favoring all fans of The Incredibles this week. It was discovered yesterday that The Incredibles 2 will now be released a whole year early, as opposed to it’s original 2019 slot. This is the best news possible for anyone who has been counting down the days to the film’s release after the original announcement, which itself feels like many moons ago. The Incredibles 2 is blasting through the production pipeline and only means great things surrounding the storytelling aspects. We suppose the Parr family are just incredibly excited to finally team up and hit cinemas again. The sequel to the 2004 hit switched places with Toy Story 4, and will now be released on June 15th, 2018. The bad news is that Toy Story 4, for the second time, is now pushed back and scheduled to be released on June 21st, 2019. Despite Toy Story 4 feeling like it’s stuck in production limbo, it most certainly makes us want to do cartwheels around the office knowing we’re going to be reunited with the Parr family sooner than expected.

Stay-tuned for more updates on the film.

The Incredibles 2 Sequel Happily Moves Through Production

It’s insane thinking about how its been 12 years since The Incredibles first premiered in cinemas. For some of us old folk, it only feels like yesterday when we sat in the dark, jaws agape, and inspired as we traveled through dangerous territories following the Parr family. With that being said, fantastic news, as always, regarding one of the most anticipated sequels from Pixar to date! Happy to report, straight from Brad Bird himself, that The Incredibles 2 continues to move smoothly through the production pipeline. From our friends over at Entertainment Weekly, we’ve found that Brad Bird dished some small insights into the upcoming film, careful not to give away any key plot points:

“I don’t like unwrapping presents before Christmas… It’s very actively moving, and we’re excited about it. We’re trying to take it in some new directions. Hopefully it’s the same characters and feel, but going in a new direction. I mean, that’s the trick with a sequel. It’s repeating yourself, without repeating yourself.”

Considering how Hollywood seems to be pushing out superhero films in an assembly line fashion these days, we’re curious to see what new spin on the genre Bird and team will create this time around. We’re also eager to see how the Parr family has been faring all of these years since we’ve last seen them on screen. It’s great to know that despite it being a sequel, Bird is conscious of that aspect and is trying to create a film that will stand alone from the first installment. Back when The Incredibles was released in 2004, Bird helped shape a new form of storytelling both in animation and in the superhero universe; delving into the familial side of superheroes, getting into their psyches, while straying from the cliches that have been notorious with Hollywood’s representation of anyone who wears a cape. Thank God Edna banished those fashion statements long ago. Perhaps this even inspired the darker side of superheros seen in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy? Regardless, 2019 can’t come soon enough.

The Incredibles 2 is scheduled for release on June 21, 2019.

The Incredibles 2: An Update On Your Favorite Superhero Family

Brad Bird, Cars 3, The Incredibles, The Incredibles 2

Posted by Nia • September 14, 2015

the_incredibles_movie-wallpaperGood news for all The Incredibles fans! Director Brad Bird has been out and about at the Toronto International Film Festival promoting the release of The Iron Giant: Signature Edition. In the midst of all the interviews, Bird dished some sought after information about the superhero sequel to Matt Goldberg from Collider.

Although there isn’t a set release date yet, Bird has been hard at work on the screenplay and collaborating closely with a small team who worked with him on the first installment. According to Bird:

“I have the story arc. I’m probably three-quarters through the script, first pass through the script, but we’re already boarding parts of it. I’ve got a lot of people that worked on the first one working on it, so we’re all having a good time with it.”

Bird also went on to mention that The Incredibles 2 was moved ahead of Cars 3, due to how fast things were coming together with the screenplay and the overall storyboard process. As of yet, Cars 3 also has no set release date.

“In terms of the release date, we were originally—Incredibles was supposed to happen after Cars, and our wheels just happened to click a little earlier so they moved us up. Release dates are a little fluid when you’re making films so far in advance. Some films are tougher to come together and tough nuts to crack, and other ones comes together a little more quickly, and so I’m just going to work as fast as I can work well with a relatively small team because I like small teams better until you’ve got everything firmly figured out.”

Despite how well pre-production is going, Bird is still encountering problems with how to approach the sequel, tackle the family relationships that worked so well with the first film, and cover the increasing popularity of superhero franchises in a new light.

“But what’s changed is there were only two other superhero franchises at the time Incredibles came out. One of them was X-Men and the other was Spider-Man, and now there are 400 billion of them and there’s a new superhero movie every two weeks. What you don’t want to do is trot over the same turf in the same way everyone else is. So we’re trying to keep it focused in the area that our film was, which was a little bit more about characters and relationships and stuff like that, and see where that takes us. But we’re having a good time.”

It’s definitely refreshing to discover that Bird is taking the latest superhero craze into account and how he plans to revolutionize the storytelling techniques with The Incredibles 2, as he did with the first film back in 2004. We only look forward to seeing what Brad Bird and team have in store for the Parr family whenever the film is closer to being released.

The Incredibles 2

Brad Bird, The Incredibles, The Incredibles 2

Posted by Simoa • April 9, 2015

When Bob Iger announced that Pixar would be releasing a sequel to The Incredibles last year, the news was met with a lot of celebration. This is the one Pixar sequel that everyone has been waiting for it seems. And now news has surfaced that Brad Bird has begun writing it. bob1

In an interview with NPR, in which he discussed his upcoming live action venture for Disney, Tomorrowland, Bird mentioned that the project is “percolating” and that he’s just starting to write it. Now all of those sites posting fake news items about the film’s summer 2016 release date can stop. This film is very likely a long ways off, considering Bird has only just started to write it. It seems like he’ll have total control over the sequel, which is encouraging since the world and its characters mean so much to him, and he’s always avoided a sequel unless the right story came along.

What do you think of an Incredibles 2?

Woody’s News Round-Up! (4/5/14)

Posted by Brkyo614 • April 5, 2014

Not much could possibly top last month’s exciting sequel news, but enjoy a summary of the latest Pixar stories, including a small Incredibles 2 update, below:

Samuel L. Jackson Talks Incredibles 2:
Samuel L. Jackson’s Frozone quickly became a fan-favorite upon the release of The Incredibles, so it’s no surprise to hear that Brad Bird is looking to bring him back in the recently-announced sequel. Speaking with Digital Spy (via Pixar Times), Samuel L. Jackson hinted that we haven’t seen the last of his ice-powered hero:

“Every time I run into Brad [Bird, director] he always tells me Frozone is part of what’s going on, so I have to believe that […] I guess they could be the Incredibles without Frozone, but I think Frozone would be a wonderful addition to what’s already there.”

Ratatouille 3D Blu-ray Coming Soon?: When Pixar’s Josh Hollander shared news on Incredibles 3D and Ratatouille 3D last month, many assumed that the studio was prepping these conversions for theatrical re-releases. However, a report from Disney Next claims that Ratatouille 3D will be released on Blu-ray in Europe this July, accompanying Disneyland Paris’ new Ratatouille attraction. No official announcement has been made.

Ratatouille Ride Update: Meanwhile, construction on the aforementioned Ratatouille ride continues to move along. Disney and More has some great photos of the work-in-progress area, which may open up for annual passholders as soon as late June. Check out the image gallery here.

Pixar Demos Its Latest Animation Software: Since its earliest years, Pixar has mostly relied on in-house software to animate their films. The studio recently rewrote their animation system from the ground up, replacing their original Marionette software with the far more optimized Presto. At this year’s GPU Technology Conference, Pixar’s Dirk Van Gelder and Danny Nahmias shared a detailed look at this new system, which aims to give animators a clearer idea of how their work will appear in fully-rendered frames. Take a look at the fascinating demo below, and for more, watch the full presentation on Ustream.

Pixar’s Josh Hollander Talks ‘Incredibles’ 3D, ‘Ratatouille’ 3D, and More

Disney Digital 3D, Inside Out, Ratatouille, The Incredibles

Posted by Brkyo614 • March 17, 2014

Over the last few years, Pixar has welcomed the revival of 3D with open arms. In addition to releasing all of their features since Up in 3D, they’ve rolled out 3D theatrical re-releases of Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Finding Nemo, and Monsters, Inc. At this month’s 3D Creative Summit, Pixar’s director of 3D production Josh Hollander shared insight into the studio’s approach to the format and discussed their future 3D plans.

According to Hollander, the studio is hard at work developing 3D versions of The Incredibles and Ratatouille. He notes that "[they’re] trying to figure out exactly what the release strategy for that will be," so whether these will be full-fledged theatrical releases or just 3D Blu-rays (like Cars 3D) is unclear.

In addition, Hollander also hinted at what to expect from next year’s Inside Out in 3D:

"The movie is just pure magic […] We’re looking at how translucency and opacity is used, which plays really well in 3D. There’s not much more I can share about it but it will build upon our use of 3D, supporting ‘emotions’ and emotional moments."

For those interested in where Pixar could go after 3D, with projection techniques like high frame rate, 4K resolution, and HDR imaging on the rise, Hollander had this to share:

"Of those, the High Dynamic Range seems most interesting to us because there are entire worlds of colour that we’ve not been able to show you and not be able to represent in our films because of the limited colour space of the display technologies. 4K is also interesting to us – that added clarity. High Frame Rate isn’t something we’ve been digging into yet, we’re doing some testing but it’s not banging down our door and begging for us to use it right now."

To read more from his talk on the state of 3D cinema, head over to ScreenDaily for the full story. Based on Hollander’s statements, Ratatouille 3D is near-complete, while The Incredibles 3D is still knee-deep in production. Stay tuned for further details on those releases.

Brad Bird Talks a Possible ‘Incredibles’ Follow-Up!

Brad Bird, The Incredibles

Posted by Brkyo614 • May 16, 2013

Fans have been clamoring for a sequel to The Incredibles for some time now, but director Brad Bird has had his hands full; after a thrilling live-action debut with 2011’s Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, he’s now busy developing an original project, Tomorrowland, with Disney. But could he eventually return to the world of animation?

While Bird has always been open to an Incredibles follow-up, he often reiterates that he won’t make it unless he finds a worthwhile direction to take the characters. But in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Bird disclosed that he’s closer than ever to coming upon that great idea:

"I have been thinking about it. People think that I have not been, but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another [Incredibles] film, and if I can get ‘em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that. I like the idea of moving a little more quickly in films. I’m looking for ways to accelerate the pace a little bit and figure out a way to keep creative control over these movies to a level where I’m comfortable with the end result but also speed them up a bit and make more of them. I have many different films I wanna make. It’s like a big airplane hangar and I have different projects on the floor; half-assembled in my brain. I’m interested in all of them. You kind of have to move on the ones people are willing to pay for and the ones you’re most excited about."

There’s no doubt that Pixar would welcome Bird back with open arms if the idea finally clicks. With Tomorrowland not hitting until late 2014, though, it’ll be a while before we find out what’s next for the brilliant director.

Would you be open to an Incredibles sequel? Or would you rather see Brad Bird tackle more original material?
