Brad Bird Teases 'Incredibles 2' Progress, Promises to Stay Focused on Characters

A month after Disney unveiled the logo for "The Incredibles 2," writer/director Brad Bird reveals progress is being made on the long-awaited Pixar sequel.

"I have the story arc," he told Collider at an event for the release of "The Iron Giant: Signature Edition." "I’m probably three-quarters through the script, first pass through the script, but we’re already boarding parts of it. I’ve got a lot of people that worked on the first one working on it, so we’re all having a good time with it."

Naturally, Bird wouldn't reveal any plot details, but he acknowledged that the movie landscape is very different than it was in 2004, which has certainly shaped the script.

"But what’s changed is there were only two other superhero franchises at the time 'Incredibles' came out," he said. "One of them was 'X-Men' and the other was 'Spider-Man,' and now there are 400 billion of them and there’s a new superhero movie every two weeks. What you don’t want to do is trot over the same turf in the same way everyone else is. So we’re trying to keep it focused in the area that our film was, which was a little bit more about characters and relationships and stuff like that, and see where that takes us. But we’re having a good time."

A release date hasn't been announced for "The Incredibles 2."
