Since 2004, fans of Pixar’s The Incredibles have been craving a sequel to the superhero film directed by Brad Bird. During the promotional tour for Bird’s 2015 film Tomorrowland, the director confirmed that a sequel was in the works and would release in the coming years.
Two years after the announcement, not much about the sequel has been revealed, other than the fact that the film was scheduled to premiere in 2019, before getting moved up to 2018. That means production is ramping up and all the pieces are starting to come together on the sequel to deliver it by next fall. Composer Michael Giacchino took to Twitter to reveal that he’s currently working on the film alongside Bird at Pixar. You can check out the tweet below.

Giacchino is best known for composing the music for the recent Star Trek films, Rogue One, Inside Out, Jurassic World and obviously The Incredibles.
With the film releasing next year, it makes sense that Giacchino would want to get work started on the film’s score as soon as possible. Going forward, we can expect updates regarding the cast and the film’s plot. For now, all we can do is hope The Incredibles sequel doesn’t follow the way of Cars 2.
In this lauded Pixar animated film, married superheroes Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) and Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) are forced to assume mundane lives as Bob and Helen Parr after all super-powered activities have been banned by the government. While Mr. Incredible loves his wife and kids, he longs to return to a life of adventure, and he gets a chance when summoned to an island to battle an out-of-control robot. Soon, Mr. Incredible is in trouble, and it’s up to his family to save him.
The Incredibles 2 will be directed by Brad Bird and will hit theaters on June 15, 2018.
