Di­rec­tor Brad Bird re­veals he’s deep in de­vel­op­ment on the se­quel to The In­cred­i­bles, the 2004 Pixar hit that brought a span­dex- clad smirk to the dawn of the 21st cen­tury su­per­hero boom. “I have the story arc,” he con­firms to Col­lider. “I’m prob­a­bly three quar­ters through the script, first pass through the script, but we’re al­ready [ story] board­ing parts of it.” The orig­i­nal, of course, hit at a time when a big- screen su­per­hero fran­chise was a nov­elty, not the norm. “Now there are 400 bil­lion of them,” says Bird, “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.” The In­cred­i­bles 2 is tar­get­ing a 16 Novem­ber 2016 re­lease. No capes!
