Local Man Worried Pixar Are “Rushing” Incredibles 2
It’s been 14 years since the first Incredibles Film, and one local man believes that 14 years isn’t enough time to adequately capture the magic
For over a decade, people have demanded a follow-up to Brad Bird’s 2004 film, The Incredibles. Judging from the cultural reception and massive box office take, these people are very happy to have had their demands met. But for 31-year-old Kyle Thompson, concerns linger over whether Pixar is “rushing” the film’s release.
“Only 14 years!”, exclaimed Thompson, “there’s no way that’s enough time to do it right”.
Thompson cares passionately about the first film, and believes that 14 years simply isn’t enough time for the film-makers to adequately perfect the script in order to make the sequel a worthy follow-up to the original.
“There were 15 years in between Zoolander films, and look how that turned out”, noted Thompson, who pointed to the 30-year gap between Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (1985) and Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) as the ideal time-frame for a sequel.
“Making quality movie takes time”, Kyle said, “and it’s disheartening to see Pixar releasing a sequel after a mere 14 years after the original, doubtlessly resulting in a rushed follow-up”.
Thompson’s friends have described him as “insufferable”.
