While we wait for a sequel to Brad Bird‘s The Incredibles, Pixar has revealed that it plans to re-release said film along with Ratatouille in 3D. This isn’t the first time Pixar does this. In the past the studio released Toy Story 1 and 2, as well as Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo.

Pixar’s director of 3D production Josh Hollander revealed the news of the 3D re-releases to ScreenDaily (via ComingSoon). He said:

“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 for 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 added, “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.”

While 3D is still not a favorite format among cinephiles and even regular movie goers, Hollander mentioned that 3D is still a very young tool, and it’s basically a learning process that’s only getting more and more sophisticated. He believes that Pixar’s usage of 3D is “getting more nuanced and more delicate.” He said, “I think we as a studio are expanding our usage of it and we in the industry are kind of meeting it at a nice middle place which is working really well.”

Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for that Incredibles sequel. Also, since Pixar is re-releasing Ratatouille, does this mean we’re also getting a sequel for that film as well? Every movie that has been re-released in 3D in the past has a sequel, so it’s totally valid to assume this, wouldn’t you say? There’s no word on when the 3D versions of The Incredibles and Ratatouille will hit theaters.

What do you think? Will you watch The Incredibles and Ratatouille in 3D?
