Sequels to The Incredibles and Cars 2 are on the way, Disney Pixar has announced.
Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed the news while speaking at the company’s shareholder’s meeting in Portland, Oregon.
No details of storyline or release dates have been revealed for the upcoming films.
The studio is also working on a Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory, as well as The Good Dinosaur and Inside Out.
However, with Finding Dory and The Good Dinosaur both being pushed back, 2014 will be Pixar’s first year without releasing a feature film since 2005.
Sequels to The Incredibles and Cars 2 are on the way
The delays mean the gap between Pixar’s most recent release, Monsters University, and Inside Out is the longest period they’ve gone without a new movie since the original Incredibles (2004) was followed by Cars in June 2006.
The most recent film in the Cars franchise, Cars 2, was released in 2011.
Pixar has also announced that a 3D version of 2007’s Ratatouille is planned.
Toy Story and Toy Story 2 have previously been re-released in 3D, as well as Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc.
Meanwhile, Disney and Lucasfilm have confirmed filming for Star Wars: Episode VII will start shooting at Pinewood Studios near London in May.
An online statement added that the latest installment in the series would be set about 30 years after the events of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, directed by JJ Abrams, is set to be released in cinemas on December 18, 2015.

Brave, which will close the Edinburgh International Film Festival later this week, is the 13th consecutive Pixar release to open at number one.
“Their track record is just unbelievable,” said Paul Dergarabedian, analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com.
“The Pixar brand just carries so much weight with the audience. It doesn’t matter almost what the story is about if it has the Pixar name.”
Brave’s heroine, who rebels against her family’s plans for her to marry, is voiced by Kelly Macdonald, of Trainspotting and Boardwalk Empire fame.
Keira Knightley’s latest film, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, made its debut at number 10.
It’s three-day takings of $3.8 million reflected the fact it had a more limited release than the rest of the titles in this week’s Top 10.
Woody Allen’s Italian romance, To Rome With Love, opened in five cinemas and made $379,371.
That gave the film an average of $75,874 per screen, compared to the $16,028 screen average for Brave.
