As promised, Disney and Pixar unveiled a new look at Incredibles 2 during last night’s broadcast of the Winter Olympics. It’s been almost 15 years since we last saw Pixar’s most super family on screen, which makes this film very long overdue, and luckily for us, it looks to pick up right where the last one left off.
Director Brad Bird made a return for the sequel, which included all of the original voice cast as well. This animated feature is one of the best of all time, but because I was only 11 years old when it came out, it’s even more than that to myself and many others. It holds a special place in my heart, so the return of these characters, finally, is something I’m more than just excited about.
I’ll be honest, this isn’t the trailer I was expecting to see, but that’s not a bad thing. I really like the fact that Elastigirl is taking front and center in this trailer, and quite possibly the movie. The original largely focused on Bob/Mr. Incredible, so it only makes sense for her to have her time. She’s a very strong character who was sidelined by her husband for at least a little while, why wouldn’t she want to put the suit back on? Now the interesting part is just how long Bob is sidelined in this story. We’ve wanted nothing more than to see this super family fight alongside each other, and while there’s no doubt in my mind that it will happen, it just matters how long it will take to see Bob, Violet and Dash join their mother.
Check out the new footage below and make sure to leave your thoughts in the comment section! How excited are you for this sequel? Do you like what you see so far? Featuring the voices of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Bob Odenkirk and Samuel L. Jackson, Incredibles 2 is set to be released on June 15th.
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
