Incredibles 2 ends without providing a closure, hinting at a third installment
There was no post-credits scene after the 'Incredibles 2' movie, leaving viewers without a sense of closure. This could mean a third part for the animated film series
The much-awaited ‘Incredibles 2’ has finally hit the screens. The arrival of the movie has somehow managed to reignite the child in everyone.
The storyline commences three months from when the first movie ended. The sequel begins in a time where superheroes are illegal. Discontent with the state of things, DevTech tycoon Winston Deavor recruits Elastigirl to make her the face of a grand publicity stunt to bring back superheroes.
In the process, Elastigirl comes across a mysterious villain called Screenslaver. The Parr family then join forces to fight this force of evil.
Fans who waited 14 years for this movie to come out were left wanting more. To their disappointment, there was no post-credit scene to give them a teaser for what is to come next.
However, there are a couple of things referenced in the post-credits that you probably don’t want to miss. First, there’s a shout-out to all the children born to people who worked on ‘Incredibles 2.’ Second, there’s a nod to Usher, who lends his voice to a character in the movie. Third, there is a tribute to Bud Luckey, a Pixar animator who passed away in February.
The lack of the post-credits scene left all the viewers demanding some closure and suspecting a third part to the series.
Comic Book reports that during an IMAX and AMC Q&A about the film, director Brad Bird was asked about the possibility of a third movie. He jokingly answered, “Let’s find the maternity ward and ask all the new mothers how they feel about the next kid! ‘Come on, you can do it!’”
In an interview with IGN, Bird talked about why it took 14 years to create the sequel. He talked about how he didn’t want to make a sequel for the sake of it; he wanted the story to worth telling.
He said: “There’s a saying in the business that I can’t stand, where they go, ‘if you don’t make another one, you’re leaving money on the table.'
"It’s like, money on the table is not what makes me get up in the morning; making something that people are gonna enjoy a hundred years from now, that’s what gets me up. So if it were a cash grab, we would not have taken 14 years — it makes no financial sense to wait this long – it’s purely [that] we had a story we wanted to tell.”
Though Bird has not confirmed a third part, it is safe to say that if there is another part, it will be meaningful and thoughtfully created. Let’s just hope that if it’s coming, it doesn’t take another 14 years!
