At a shareholders meeting in Portland, Oregon, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced a sequel to “The Incredibles” as well as a third entry in the “Cars” series. Both properties have been wildly successful for the company, though it is “The Incredibles 2” that seems to be creating the most buzz.
The first “Incredibles” film released in 2004, grossing $261 million at the domestic box office and $631 million worldwide. “Cars” and “Cars 2” have combined for a total of $435 million at the domestic box office, with over $1 billion worldwide. Both franchises have also been strong sellers for Disney in the home media marketplace.
In addition to their success at the box office, “The Incredibles” and “Cars” are both featured in Disney Interactive’s action-adventure game "Disney Infinity," which features collectible figures of various characters from these and other Disney properties.
The films join “The Good Dinosaur,” “Inside Out,” and “Finding Dory” on Pixar’s list of current projects.
