Pixar Planning 3D Re-Releases for ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘Ratatouille’

Disney Pixar's director of 3D production, John Hollander, revealed at the 3D Creative Summit in London that the studio is working on 3D conversions of The Incredibles and Ratatouille.

Here's what John Hollander had to say at the summit about The Incredibles, though it isn't known when they may release this 3D version.

"Right now we're working on The Incredibles, which is a lot of fun in 3D. I'm not sure what the release strategy for it will be. It's been an interesting challenge to work on technology because - while the film was released 10 years ago - the technology is even older as it took four years to make."

He also spoke about the Ratatouille 3D conversion, which has already been completed.

"We have a version of Ratatouille, which works really well in 3D and we're trying to figure out exactly what the release strategy for that will be."

Pixar has previously re-released 3D versions of Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc. and Finding Nemo.

Todd Hollander also spoke about the studio's next 3D animated adventure, Inside Out, which features the voices of Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Lewis Black and Pixar regular John Ratzenberger, and is set for release on July 19, 2015.

"The movie is just pure magic. We're looking at how translucency and opacity is used, which plays really well in 3D. There's not much more I can share about it but it will build upon our use of 3D, supporting 'emotions' and emotional moments."

The Incredibles was released November 5th, 2004.

    @brady1138 only reason im dying for it now is BECAUSE they made bad sequels. Incredibles can have 100+ different directions. New villains, new heroes, the kids age or death in the family! But Cars 2? Nemo is the most untouchable film yet even thats getting a sequel....smh

        @cvntstop@jasdjqs@Johnny1312@2movieguys What's wrong with getting to see great films again on the big screen? If no one else can make anything good, may as well pay for what you already know is good. Besides, we don't really need an Incredibles sequel. Why risk ruining what's so great already? Why can't a great standalone movie just stay that way? We of all people should know how sequels can devalue their predecessors. Besides, Pixar's sequel record is a bit spotty, so I think they're better off staying original. @gandoff@bawnian-dexeus@therealGoku

          @Brizzy Oh yeah, because if the makers of Wall-E, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, the Toy Story trilogy, Finding Nemo, and Up have proven over the years is that they're lazy!

          Why is it lazy NOT to make a sequel? Pixar is the only movie studio today that still makes regularly original stuff that's consistently great (Brave notwithstanding), so they should just keep doing that.

                  Instead of doinga worthless re-release for the incredibles in 3d, just make a damn sequel to that one and make it in 3d
