Can you believe it’s 14 fucking long years since The Incredibles? More over, can you believe it’s taken 14 fucking long years for it to get a sequel?
Despite this wait, The Incredibles 2 will take place a lot closer to the first film than that.
Speaking to IGN, Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseseter confirmed that the sequel will be set immediately after the events of the original.
It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on. 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 we start this movie.
One of the unique things about the Incredibles is it’s really a story of a family set in the world of superheroes. This one carries on that theme,” he said. “It’s awesome, the idea we came up with — simple as that. … We love to really look at our own lives and look at what’s going on, and find themes that we know will resonate with the audience.
The Incredibles 2 is set for a 2018 release.
