Brad Bird Pushing A Side Superhero Tropes For THE INCREDIBLES 2


Brad Bird is currently making the rounds on his press tour for Disney's Tomorrowland, however, he recently stated that once his obligations on the George Clooney and Brit Robertson sci-fi adventure are complete, he'll begin work on the script for The Incredibles 2.  When asked about what story he wished to tackle in the Pixar sequel, Bird partially sidestepped the question by discussing what he didn't want to tackle.

Said Bird, "Well, I worry if you comment too much on other movies [in your own movie] then you might just be coasting off their good will. There was a very lazy trend in comedy where somebody would start singing the theme song from The Flintstones and you're supposed to dig on it just because you recognize it. So I don't like that. I think that movies ought to work in and of themselves. However… I would say that the superhero movie turf right now is very trodden over — it's kind of like a field that's had too many games on it, and it's just dried up dirt at this point."

However, what he did share about The Incredibles 2 should be encouraging to fans.

"I think that the greatest special effect is caring about a character. A lot of movies seem to forget that, and they bring out a lot of fireballs and then wonder why the fireballs don't have that much impact, no matter how loud and how big they are. But the truth is that the fireball isn't that exciting unless you care about the person running from it."

The full interview with Bird will be available in issue 59 of Little White Lies, on sale May 7.
