Brad Bird Has Reassured Sam Jackson That He’ll Be Back For INCREDIBLES 2

Frozone

There was no doubt that the members of the Parr family – aka The Incredibles – would all be back for the recently announced sequel to the 2004 Pixar hit, but it was not known who of their superpowered friends might be joining them. Now that the cat is out of the bag in terms of the sequel actually happening, it seems as if at least one voice cast member, in this case Samuel L. Jackson, is also returning and doesn’t mind talking about it.

While doing the promotional rounds for this week’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier the actor mentioned to Digital Spy that he was definitely returning for the sequel and that Incredibles director Brad Bird has been talking to him about it for some time.

Every time I run into Brad [Bird] he always tells me Frozone is part of what’s going on, so I have to believe that… I guess they could be the Incredibles without Frozone, but I think Frozone would be a wonderful addition to what’s already there… I’m just looking forward to seeing what Jack-Jack turned into.

Although a supporting character in the original story, Frozone was such an integral part of the first film, that I have a hard time seeing a sequel without him. There’s no announced release date for the film, but with Pixar having announced their schedule through 2016, it will be 2017 at the earliest before we see this.
