Disney’s SKY HIGH Director Says He Wants Marvel to Make a Sequel to His 2005 Movie — GeekTyrant

Director Mike Mitchell has made several popular kids movies that include Shrek Forever After, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Trolls, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, and most recently, Kung Fu Panda 4. But if he had his pick of projects to return to, it would be his 2005 live-action teen superhero movie, Sky High, which he’d like to see a sequel for, made by none other than Marvel studios.

In a recent interview with ComicBook, Mitchell explained:

“Save U, Save University. Sky High-er. Here’s what it is. I know that Kevin Feige is a huge Sky High fan. Right when it came out, he met with me, and we talked about it. His whole team loved it because it was the first superhero comedy that was having fun with the genre. But, at the same time honoring it. And so, the trick is this: That was not made under Marvel. That was before they [Disney] bought Marvel. If we could pull Kevin into it. And, we could get Disney to…. Disney’s so scared of Marvel. Only Marvel can do superhero films. To which, I say, ‘Great!’ Let’s have Marvel do Sky High! That would be fun. So, I’m ready to go.”

Sky High’s synopsis reads:

“A super adventure of heroic proportions, this crowd-pleasing hit stars Hollywood favorites Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston. The son of legendary heroes Commander (Russell) and Jetstream (Preston), young Will Stronghold carries huge expectations as he enters a high-tech high school known for molding the heroes of tomorrow. With no apparent superpowers of his own, however, Will seems destined to grow up a mere sidekick. But as he discovers his true strengths, he’ll also learn that it takes loyalty and teamwork to truly become a hero.”
