Los Angeles: Director Brad Bird says the work on the sequel of 2004 hit animated comedy superhero film "The Incredibles" is going so well that it will release before "Cars 3".
While promoting the upcoming "The Iron Giant: Signature Edition", Bird shared the update about "The Incredibles 2", reported Aceshowbiz.
He, however, added the two Pixar Animation Studios films do not have official release dates just yet.
"In terms of the release date, we were originally - 'Incredibles' was supposed to happen after 'Cars', and our wheels just happened to click a little earlier so they moved us up. Release dates are a little fluid when you're making films so far in advance," Bird explained.
The director said he had done a large portion of the initial script of "The Incredibles 2".
"I have the story arc. I'm probably three-quarters through the script, first pass through the script, but we're already boarding parts of it. I've got a lot of people that worked on the first one working on it, so we're all having a good time with it."
Bird, 57, continued by telling the reporter about strategies he had to work on the film, which is expected to arrive in the US in 2017.
"Some films are tougher to come together and tough nuts to crack, and other ones comes together a little more quickly, and so I'm just going to work as fast as I can work well with a relatively small team because I like small teams better until you've got everything firmly figured out."
Bird remained silent about the movie's details and did nt give any plot details.
