Disney and Pixar have made a slew of amazing films over the years, and many of them have been praised for a variety of reasons. One of the most popular though that has really grown its fan base was The Incredibles. A story about a family of superheroes set in a world where being a superhero is outlawed. The film put a lot of twists on the classic superhero story, and it resonated with a lot of people. Yet, it never got a sequel, until this year that is.
The Incredibles 2 literally picks up where the last one left off, and we get to see that in the first official trailer or “sneak peek” for the film. But what’s better, is that we get more context into what the film is about. Turns out, their battles with Syndrome and his robot, as well as The Underminer has been turning heads, and one guy wants to bring the Supers (the name of the group of former heroes) back “into the spotlight”. And to do that…he wants Elastigirl to lead the charge.
So, where does this leave Mr. Incredible? Well, he’s left watching over the kids, which is a great role-reversal from the previous film, as Elastigirl was very much a homekeeper while Mr. Incredible was off on his own adventures. So now, he’s the homekeeper, and the trailer hilarious shows how hard that is for him, yet, he’s trying to be supportive, because he knows that if she succeeds, the Supers could come back into the light. He just has to survive his children.
Pretty much all of the original voice cast from the first film are back, with the exception of the voice for Dash. This includes Samuel L. Jackson as returning friend and Super, Frozone.
The Incredibles 2 will hit theaters on June 15th.
