SequelQuest Rewind | An Iron Giant Sequel | EP81

(From July 2018)

Brad Bird’s first directorial outing, The Iron Giant has had a rocky road to getting its due from movie goers since its release in 1999. The story of a boy befriending a massive metal robot from outer space during the Cold War has gained a loyal following over the years, even resulting in a special edition release in 2015.

While star Vin Diesel has stated his desire to return for a sequel, Brad Bird has been less interested, stating that the film works well on its own. But fortune favors the bold and so the SequelQuest crew is picking up the dangling plot threads and spinning a whole new story for The Iron Giant 2.

Join Adam, Jeff and Jeramy as they dig deep into the origins of this animated Warner Brothers movie, it’s history on screen and get into the what ifs of this vast universe. Will we learn the origin of the giant? What becomes of Hogarth after his friend sacrifices himself to save the town? Does E.T. look like a frog? All these questions and more will be answered in the latest episode of SequelQuest.
