IGN caught up with Disney Pixar chief John Lasseter at D23, where he confirmed that The Incredibles 2 will pick up right where the first one ended! Here’s is what he had to say:
“It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on,” said Lasseter, who specified that only “a minute” will have passed between films. “It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece. You know that at the end of the first movie when he comes up and you see the family dressed as superheroes, well that’s where start this movie.”
Of course this news dashes the hopes of fans who wanted an equal amount of time to have lapsed since the film’s 2004 release. If you look around the internet, you’ll see tons of fan art for adult versions of Dash, Violet and Jack Jack. Perhaps it’s this very fan anticipation that led Disney and Pixar to go in the oppossite direction?
The anticipated sequel is set to be released on June 15, 2018!

Disney Pixar races into theaters this weekend with the highly-anticipated Cars 3, which is expected to come away with an easy box office win. The animated sequel continues the adventures of the iconic racer Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), who will face a new crop of younger racers. While doing press for the movie, Cars 3 director Brian Fee, who makes his directorial debut after serving as a storyboard artist on the first two Cars movies, revealed that there was almost a scene where Lightning McQueen got to meet two of the Batmobiles!
Screen Junkies News caught up with Brian Fee, who was asked if any actual car companies have approached them about putting some of their real cars in the movie. While he wouldn’t mention any specifics, the director did say that they make deals with car companies, but they all don’t want their cars to be a villain. The director also shared that there was a scene they were planning early on in the movie that didn’t make the final cut, which took Lightning McQueen to Los Angeles, where he got to meet some celebrities. Here’s what the director had to say about this scene below.
“We had a scene early on that didn’t make it into the film, because the story evolved away from it, but we had, at one point, part of the story took place in L.A. And we had a scene where McQueen went to a Hollywood hills party and it was full of actors, and we had the old Batmobile and the new Batmobile talking to each other at a party. They were the actors of the world.”
Unfortunately, the director didn’t say who they were planning on getting to voice these Batmobile characters, since the entire L.A. section of the Cars 3 story was ultimately scrapped. If Pixar decides to move forward with a Cars 4, it’s possible that this L.A. portion of the story could be resurrected for that sequel, but it’s too early to tell if Pixar will move forward with another installment. Then again, with the movie expected to open big this weekend, it wouldn’t be surprising if a fourth Cars movie is announced soon, perhaps even next week!
