WASHINGTON, March 19, 2014 – You can’t keep a good man down. Whether it’s Mater or Mr. Incredible!
Disney / Pixar is announcing that the under twelve set, their parents and grandparents and even non-admitting teens, can look forward to The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3 – but they will have to wait until sometime 2018 or 2020.
During a Tuesday shareholders call, Bob Iger, Disney CEO revealed development plans including that director Brad Bird is working on The Incredibles 2 sequel, which will be released in 3D.
Last October, voice actor Michael Wallis, who is the voice of the Sheriff in in the Cars franchise, leaked that Cars 3 was in development saying “Cars 3… we’re coming back to the road. And we’re coming back to 66 into 99 – the 6s upside, that’s the road that runs through central California. I just love doing this work, and it all cross pollinates. We’ve turned a whole new generation onto old roads.”
Disney denied that Cars 3 “was in the works” but instead of a feature length film, the actor was referring to a Cars short film, The Radiator Springs 500 1/2. Entertainment Weekly reports that the cast of the original film, including Owen Wilson, will be featured in the six-minute short and that will premier sometime this spring.
“We kind of played it up like a western,” says Rob Gibbs , the Mater’s Tall Tales vet who directed the short along with Scott Morse. “These off-road racers come to town, like gunslingers looking for the hottest gunslinger in Radiator Springs, Lightning McQueen. They challenge him to a race, like someone would challenge someone to a duel.”
Cars grossed $244 million worldwide; Cars 2 $191 million. A second short is already slated for release in 2015. Here is a clip from the Cars Short Air Mater scheduled for release prior to either Cars or The Incredibles sequels is Finding Dory (November 2015) sequel to Finding Nemo (2003).
