Brad Bird, who wrote and directed the hit 2004 animated film The Incredibles, has revealed that his next film will be its sequel.
Bird says he already has a bunch of pages for The Incredibles 2 already wrote. "I had a lot of ideas for the original Incredibles that I didn't get a chance to use, that I like," Bird said. "I have ideas that I wanted to pursue a little bit, and there wasn't enough time in Incredibles. There are new ideas I have, and I think there are enough of those together to make an interesting movie."
In addition, Brad Bird told Collider that he's been in talks with Lucasfilm regarding the possibility of directing a future Star Wars movie. "I was particularly attracted to the idea of picking up [a film in the franchise], and J.J. [Abrams] got very excited about the notion of shaping the next trilogy, and that idea was interesting to me too," Bird said. "But I'm writing [the Incredibles sequel], and I can't think too much farther beyond that. I have other things I want to do as well."
The Incredibles grossed $631.4 million worldwide and picked up two Oscars. It was last March that Disney announced that a sequel to the film, which featured the voice talents of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Jason Lee and Samuel L. Jackson, was in the works.
Bird's latest movie, Tomorrowland, arrives in theaters on May 22nd.
