On the official Disney blog named Oh My Disney, they have made a post named 8 Pixarians to Follow on Twitter they look at eight people from Pixar with Twitter accounts. One of them was Brad Bird and they mention that Brad Bird will not only write the film but direct it.
Also for a while they also mentioned that Dan Scanlon was going to direct Cars 3, but then they stated that they put a incorrect fact there.
Brad Bird confirmed for the director and writer slot isn't the only thing that was confirmed about the movie recently, it was also confirmed that Michael Giacchino will score the movie who also scored the original The Incredibles and also Ratatouille, Cars 2, and Inside Out. The Incredibles 2 is going to be Brad's third Pixar movie and his sixth film overall, which the previous ones being:
- The Iron Giant
- The Incredibles
- Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol
- and now The Incredibles 2
I think this is the perfect choice, since Brad did direct the first movie and I already guessed that he probably would be the director since he just finished Tomorrowland last year (which I will release a Pixar Points on in the future). But that's just what I think. See you next time!
What do you think about Brad Bird directing The Incredibles 2?
