Brad Bird talks Incredibles 2

Brad Bird has given an update on The Incredibles 2 during an interview with Collider, revealing that the script is now about three quarters complete, and giving a few hints as to what we can expect from the long-awaited sequel. “I have the story arc,” says Bird. “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.”

“In terms of the release, Incredibles 2 was supposed to happen after Cars 3, 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.”

“But what’s changed is there were only two other superhero franchises at the time Incredibles came out,” continues the director. “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.”
