Recently I rewatched Incredibles 2 on Netflix and all throughout my time watching the film ideas for potential sequels kept popping into my head. The possibilities of yet another sequel to the critically-acclaimed animated franchise seem slim, considering that it took writer/director Brad Bird fourteen! years to finally bring The Incredibles back to the world, but there are so many directions the movie could go.
I mean, off the top of my head, here are two storylines I think a sequel could tackle.
1. An Ultimate Superhero versus SuperVillain Conundrum
With superheroes being legalized at the end of Incredibles 2 the world of supers is back and popping. The Incredibles could be fighting the baddies, saving citizens and making the world a better place, but then here comes the ultimate villain ready to bring the world to its knees.
I would love to see the main antagonists without powers like the previous two villains but he (or she) controls a cult of villainous baddies with superpowers and together they strive to take over the world.
The Incredibles, with the help of Frozone and other new or old supers, could face the impending threat in an action-packed third installment to an already fantastic film.
2. The Incredibles Take a Considerable Time Jump
For two movies we’ve seen The Incredibles in relatively the same state. Incredibles 2, however, did shine a light on Baby Jack Jack’s powers but there wasn’t much that had changed. If there were to be a sequel I think it would be very smart to show the superhero family in a new stage of their lives.
Maybe Violet could be an adult, Dash would be a teenager, and Baby Jack-Jack could be at an age between seven and nine years old. That would give viewers of the third Incredibles movie something different to grasp onto, which would be very important.
So, based on these two ideas of mine, should there be an Incredibles 3? If written correctly, definitely. These movies are fantastic for children and adults and I’m hoping Disney sees the potential in a continued storyline.
What do you think? Would you like to see a third installment for the incredible franchise? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
