Disney has changed release dates for the two high-profile Pixar sequels, due to one being produced faster than the other.
The Incredibles 2 will now release in the cinema on June 15, 2018, as opposed to Toy Story 4 which will hit theaters on June 21, 2019. The two films are swapping dates thanks to an accelerated production schedule for Incredibles 2, Disney insiders claim.
It is fair to say Toy Story is by far the safer option for Disney to create another sequel for, as it is their most successful film franchise. The Incredibles 2 could prove to be slightly risky, given that the sequel will be releasing more than a decade after the original movie.
Which of these two Disney films would you have preferred to see first? Leave a comment below!
Oscar-winning director Brad Bird is directing Incredibles 2, the follow-up to his hit 2004 film that grossed north of $633 million globally following its early November launch, including $70.4 million domestically, the second-biggest opening at the time for an animated title.
Pixar has been cautious when it comes to making sequels. Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger announced The Incredibles 2 sequel a full decade after the first film played in theaters during a March 2014 shareholder meeting.
