Iger: ‘The Incredibles,’ ‘Cars’ Sequels and New ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Attraction in Works

Treasure Cove at Shanghai Disneyland (Concept Art)At the 2014 Annual Shareholders meeting being held in Portland, Oregon, Bob Iger made several announcements related to various arms of the Walt Disney Company.

When it comes to future film productions, Iger announced that The Incredibles director Brad Bird is working on the story for a sequel. He also acknowledged that Disney/Pixar is working on a third installment of the Cars franchise. While he had little to offer on the Star Wars Episode VII front, he did state that the story takes place thirty years after the Return of the Jedi installment and will feature ‘familiar faces’ as well as a ‘trio of young new faces.’
