Back in July, I made the case for why Disney (NYSE: DIS ) Pixar would do well to create a sequel to its 2004 smash hit, The Incredibles.
After all, The Incredibles was widely declared a box-office success, ultimately taking in over $631 million in gross ticket sales worldwide on a reasonable production budget of $92 million.
What's more, delighted audiences have long kept their eyes peeled for The Incredibles 2, especially since the first film seemed to end with a sequel in mind, as the movie's namesake superhero family readied a fight with a villain comically named "The Underminer."
Unsurprisingly, rumors swirled over the following weeks that Disney was potentially planning to unveil the sequel at its D23 Expo in August, but the event came and went with noIncredibles news.
This could be even bigger
Disney did, however, provide some new details at D23 on another upcoming animated superhero flick they've working on of late.
