During a shareholders conference call Tuesday morning, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that plans are currently in the works for The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3.

While not many additional details were shared, Iger said that The Incredibles director Brad Bird is currently working on a story for the sequel. The news comes on the heels of an announcement yesterday that The Incredibles will be re-released in theaters in 3D.

Iger said that a new Cars movie is in the works as well but did not elaborate further. News of a third installment first leaked last October when one of the voice actors said the project is in development.

BREAKING (NOT SO SURPRISING) NEWS!

Olaf was seen talking to Bob Iger earlier this week about replacing Mickey’s spot as the official “mouse-scot” of the company. Bob thinks it will increase revenue and more attraction to the Disney company. Mickey has run his course, Bob implied. He’s been with us for so long, it’s time to ~let him go~. 

Olaf gave no comment but giggled when asked about it.

"We’re deeply saddened by the loss of Robin Williams, a wonderfully gifted man who touched our hearts and never failed to make us laugh. An incredible actor and a comedic genius, Robin will always be remembered for bringing some of the world’s favorite characters to life, from his zany alien on ABC’s Mork & Mindy to the irascible genie in Disney’s Aladdin. He was a true Disney Legend, a beloved member of our family, and he will be sorely missed. We join Robin’s friends and fans everywhere in mourning, and offer our thoughts and condolences to his family during this difficult time.” - Bob Iger, The Walt Disney Company

"First and foremost Marvel does not have Downey in place yet. ”They need him, and they don’t have him. He’s got a lot of leverage,” one insider tells me."

If you’re like most people, you already have a relationship with the Walt Disney Company. However, beginning today, you will no longer be like most people. Because now, you are part of the Walt Disney Company
— 

Walt Disney Company CEO, Bob Iger

ugh, I’m not even back in Traditions and I’m tearing up

More choice bits from that Deadline artice--

(in case you don’t want to read the entire thing)

On Marvel’s stinginess —

" .. One reason why The Avengers was nominated for only one Oscar – Best Visual Effects – in the 85th Academy Awards contest was because Marvel refused to pay for an awards season campaign for the picture. And even when Disney offered to foot the bill, Marvel still wouldn’t budge."

On Marvel (already) threatening to recast —

"I’ve learned Marvel already has threatened to sue or recast when contracts and/or options are challenged. That prompted a few cast members to respond, ‘Go ahead.’"

Others:

  • Only Chris Evans is actually signed on for Avengers 2 (part of his Winter Soldier deal)
  • Marvel will only give a $500K bonus and onlyif the film reaches $500M.
  • Marvel refuses to pay Chris Hemsworth more for than what he got from Snow White and the Huntsman.  Hemsworth was also happier with the treatment that he gets from Universal (which produced that film).
  • Disney bosses Bob Iger and Alan Horn are scared of Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter, who also happens to be Disney’s third-biggest shareholder.
  • None of the cast members had ever talked to Perlmutter, not even RDJ.
  • Joss Whedon has a contract with Marvel/Disney worth $100M that includes consultation work among other film/TV deals.

"We’re deeply saddened by the loss of Robin Williams, a wonderfully gifted man who touched our hearts and never failed to make us laugh. An incredible actor and a comedic genius, Robin will always be remembered for bringing some of the world’s favorite characters to life, from his zany alien on ABC’s Mork & Mindy to the irascible genie in Disney’s Aladdin. He was a true Disney Legend, a beloved member of our family, and he will be sorely missed.
