Yesterday, there was a massive rumor being spread around Tumblr about the possible production for a sequel to my favorite Pixar movie, The Incredibles.
These assumptions are FALSE.
I've been recently doing extensive research about the possible sequel for a future video, so I was very skeptical and curious when I saw this post being circulated over thousands of blogs. (At this moment, this post has over 63,000 notes...most of them with comments over their excitement for The Incredibles sequel.) I immediately double checked my search to confirm this rumor, and there was absolutely nothing new to report from what I had read last week.
First of all, the "official movie poster" (below) looked like someone just slapped a number two on a random photo of the Parr family, which seriously anyone can do in a simple photo editor program.

The D23 Expo occurred this past weekend, where many other Disney movies and future projects were officially announced. The Incredibles 2 was not a part of the list.
Among these announced movies is Big Hero 6, which is Marvel's first animated feature since it became a Disney franchise. This does not have anything to do with The Incredibles. This is a completely different story in a different world with completely different characters. This is not a backstory or prequel to The Incredibles. The two movies are not related in any way besides they're both a part of the Disney franchise.
If you see posts like these on Tumblr or anywhere online, stating that there's going to be a new movie or ANY kind of exciting announcement, please do your research and find the facts before believing a statement created by just anyone on the internet. Most of the "sources" for these statements were fan made wikis, which are not viable sources of information. Anyone can post something exciting and make it sound convincing, but that doesn't mean that they are true.
