Vin Diesel confirms Iron Giant sequel?

15-fun-facts-about-the-iron-giantThe Iron Giant is one of the most acclaimed animated feature films. The film was the directorial debut of Brad Bird, who would go on to direct such films as The Incredibles and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. The film was originally released in 1999 and was a dud at the box office due to the Warner Brother’s poor marketing and the fact that they almost literally pushed the film out the door into theaters. Nevertheless, the film still garnered universal praise and won numerous awards.

This year, Warner Brothers is set to release the completely digitally remastered film for the first time with The Iron Giant: Signature Edition. In celebration of the announcement, the voice of the Iron Giant, Vin Diesel, posted on his official Facebook about the film.

I have been very lucky to have played so many interesting characters… one of the first and one of my favorites is… the Iron Giant.

P.s. Don’t be surprised when you hear WB announce the sequel.

This would be the first news that anyone has heard of a possible sequel and so far nothing is still confirmed. But when Vin Diesel teases something, it almost 99 percent of the time turns out to be true. Given that Vin Diesel portrayal of Groot won over hugely with audiences, Warner Brothers may now have a reignited interest in the franchise.

Hopefully, they can get Brad Bird and screenwriter Tim McCanlies back together for the project.

The Iron Giant will be re-released back into theaters for a limited time only on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 and Sunday October 4, 2015.
