Pixar developing Incredibles 3D re-release

Seeing that Pixar has no 2014 release thanks to a delay of The Good Dinosaur, it seems that they have nothing better to do than plan more 3D re-releases. We have already had re-releases of Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Finding Nemo, and Monsters Inc. Next up on the agenda is none other than the 2004 Oscar-winning feature The Incredibles. Also on the slate is a planned rendering of a less popular Pixar film, Ratatouille.
Josh Hollander, Pixar Director of 3D Production, spoke at the 3D Creative Summit in London about these upcoming projects. Regarding The Incredibles, Hollander said, "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." Apparently there is already a version of Ratatouille finished and they are brainstorming release strategies for it.

This is sort of surprising as Disney seemed to scrap the 3D re-releases after disappointing box office numbers for Beauty and the Beast. We were supposed to get the 3D re-release of The Little Mermaid in September, but it was canceled or indefinitely delayed. However you want to take that one.
The re-releases of Monsters Inc. and Finding Nemo weren't that successful at the box office either. Not to mention many have been calling for an Incredibles sequel, not just a 3D re-release.

There is no telling how fast these will hit theaters, but if everything stays the same as it is now we won't see a Pixar film until Inside Out is released on June 19, 2015.
