Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back. After entering the world of live action filmmaking, writer-director Brad Bird returns to animations with a long awaited sequel to his 2004 hit The Incredibles with Incredibles 2. This time, however, Bob, aka Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), finds himself sidelined as his wife Helen, aka Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) secures a new job utilizing her superpowers for Winston Deavor (Bob Odenkirk). While Helen is off saving countless innocent civilians, Bob is forced to be a stay-at-home dad tending to his brood of super-children, Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Huck Milner), and baby Jack-Jack.
14 years ago, when The Incredibles debuted, the superhero craze was in it early stages. Marvel Studios had yet to be established. Now, as Incredibles 2 lands in theaters, superheroes are everywhere, and this animated superhero sequel will land in theaters shortly after the highly anticipated events of Avengers: Infinity War. When it comes to sequels, though, few have the track record of Disney-Pixar, who rarely swing and miss — and I think it’s safe to say that despite the demand, Pixar and Brad Bird were willing to let this idea gestate until it was just right.
The family of fabulous superheroes return to action this summer when Incredibles 2 suits up on June 15, 2018 in theaters everywhere.
The official synopsis for Incredibles 2:
In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
