Disney and Pixar announced today that they’ve switched around the release dates for The Incredibles 2. What that means is the long delayed sequel is now going to reach the big screen on June 15th, 2018, roughly a year sooner than we expected to see it debut.

However, with news as good as this, there’s always a downside. That is the fact Toy Story 4 is now going to be released on June 21st, 2019, a year later than we expected to see it.

Still, we’ve already had three Toy Story movies and just the one instalment of The Incredibles, so the fact we’re going to get that sooner rather than later is hard to complain about! Very little is known about the movie as of right now of course, but Brad Bird is returning to direct and the original cast are obviously all set to reprise their respective roles.

Talking last year about his plans for The Incredibles sequel, Bird confirmed that he’s approaching the sequel in a very different way now that superhero movies are so popular.

“What’s changed is there were only two other superhero franchises at the time Incredibles came out. 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.”
