INCREDIBLES 2 Director Brad Bird Isn't Keen On A Marvel/Pixar Crossover But Remains Interested In STAR WARS

Ever since Disney purchased Marvel, fans have been wondering when they'll see Pixar adapt a comic book. Now, Brad Bird weighs in on why that's not the best idea and reiterates his interest in Star Wars.

Since The Incredibles came out, superhero movies have taken off in a big way and Marvel Studios is mostly responsible for that. Common sense says that since Disney purchased Marvel, Pixar probably should have moved forward with a comic book adaptation of some sort as that combination would no doubt result in a guaranteed hit (the closest we've come to that is Disney Animation's Big Hero 6).

During a recent interview to promote the upcoming release of Incredibles 2, director Brad Bird was asked for his thoughts on a crossover and while it's been discussed, it doesn't seem to be happening.

" I've heard it discussed, not with me in particular, but I've heard it sort of thrown around a little bit. But at Pixar we've always felt like Marvel is Marvel, and Pixar is Pixar, and Lucasfilm is Lucasfilm. And they serve everyone better, including Disney, if they're separate. If you start crossing them too much it's like when you blend too many colors together, it starts turning into mud. So, that may make a marketing guy's mouth water but I don't think it makes artists excited."
That's a fair point and while it would be interesting to combine these worlds, they're all managing fine by themselves and don't need each other to succeed. So, there go those hopes of a Star Wars/Guardians of the Galaxy crossover movie! Talking of a Galaxy Far, Far Away, Bird went on to share an update on his ties to that universe after it was previously reported he turned Lucasfilm down. 
"Well, I've known Kathy Kennedy a long time. And I've known George [Lucas] quite a while too. And certainly, that's a very fun universe and if I could think of something that would be perfect for that I would give Kathy a call, absolutely. They've sort of said if I have any notion that would fit in that universe to please contact them. I mean, I saw Kathy a week ago 'cause they were mixing Solo down the hall from us up here. So, I wouldn't rule that out. But I also have a lot of other ideas I'm very anxious to do."

Seeing the filmmaker tackle Star Wars would definitely be a lot of fun but like that Marvel/Pixar team-up, it appears as if we'll just have to wait and see what happens for now. What do you think?
