Brad Bird teases the origins of The Incredibles 2 story in an exclusive conversation with CS
What should fans expect fromÂ The Incredibles 2 story?Â This week, ComingSoon.net had the chance to ask filmmaker Brad Bird exactly that as we wereÂ invited to participate in a special press day for the home video release of Birdâs latest, the live-action family adventure Tomorrowland.Â Check back soon for the full interview a little closer to Tomorrowlandâs Blu-ray release on October 13 and read on for an explanation of the inception of the Incredibles 2 story.
âI donât think I could have made this movie right away,â Bird explained when asked if the past ten years had changed his point of view on the characters at all.Â âNor would I want to. I always want to break things up with something else. I know some directors who have done a movie and then, the very next thing they do is the sequel to that movie. Unless itâs âLord of the Ringsâ and it was always conceived of us doing it that way, I will always want to break it up with something else and then come back to it. That said, Iâm really looking forward to playing with this playset again.â
While Bird is staying mum for the time being on specifics regarding theÂ Incredibles 2 story,Â he did hint that some of theÂ elements in the script are connected to ideas that didnât make it into the original film.
âI had a bunch of ideas that I wanted to put in âThe Incredibles,'â he said, âbut they just didnât fit. Certain ideas fit, but other things make you go, âThis is great, but Iâd have to give up two other things that matter more to me to get this other thing in.â So there were a pile of ideas left over from âThe Incredibles,â but itâs not a big thing. There were little scenes and things that I was interested in.Â I wanted to come up with sort of an over-arching idea that connected to the first film that went somewhere different. Thatâs the one that took a little more time.â
