So I am going to get a lot of anger my way after saying this, but I never got round to watching "The Incredibles" all I ever hear is great things about it just never came on my radar, sorry guys! Bird was the man with the plan at Pixar when he brought the unbelievably popular "The Incredibles" to life now he has finally spoken about a sequel to said film.
"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."
Bird also spoke about being approached for the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII", which he turned down.
"They did come to me. But the problem was, the schedule they
had in mind made it impossible to do…unless I dropped Tomorrowland. And
I was just really deeply into this film at that point. It’s easy to
say, “Just put it on hold.” But you’re moving now; you don’t know if
you’re going to be able to move later. Maybe it’s true of filmmakers
like Cameron or Spielberg, but I have to act on momentum. We had reached
a critical mass where it would’ve thrown the furniture around from the
train stopping. I really want to see this movie. I love the Star Wars
films, and I can’t wait to see what J.J. does, but it meant I’d have to
shut down one dream to participate in another. I feel like [with
Tomorrowland] we’re making something that’s really special and unique."
