The Incredibles 2 has scored the best possible director

Guess who’s coming back to direct the Incredibles sequel? YES, YOU ARE RIGHT

The Parrs are pumped

As if the news of an Incredibles sequel wasn’t amazing enough already, Pixar have gone and dropped an even better tidbit: The Incredibles‘ original director Brad Bird (Tomorrowland, The Iron Giant) is returning to helm it.

The Incredibles 2 will be Bird’s next film – meaning production could start sooner than expected – and his first animation since Ratatouille in 2007.


However, Pixar still have seven other films in the works before The Incredibles 2 is slated for release, including Inside Out, which is in cinemas this summer, The Good Dinosaur, Toy Story 4 and Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory, so we could be waiting some time.

Inside Out is in cinemas on 19 June in the US and 24 June in the UK. You can buy The Incredibles on Blu-ray for £9.70 from Get all the latest superhero movie news with every issue of SciFiNow.
