In 2004, Disney & Pixar introduced to the world to the Parrs who would soon become America’s favorite superhero family: The Incredibles. Now, 14 years later, they are expanding their story by bringing us a sequel to the beloved animated film (watch the trailer above). The voice cast from the original movie will be returning including Craig T. Nelson as Mr. Incredible, Holly Hunter as Elastigirl, and even Samuel L. Jackson as the incomparable Frozone.
While the cast is returning, it seems as though the plot is as well. While we do not know the specifics of where the story will take us, we gather from the trailer that it will be an extremely similar concept. In the first movie, Mr. Incredible leaves his family to get back into the superhero game. In “The Incredibles 2”, from what we can gather from the trailer, it seems that Mrs. Incredible is leaving to fight crime while Mr. Incredible is stuck raising the kids.
And what took them so long to make this sequel? I was 8-years-old when the first movie came out. “The Incredibles” is a kids movie and I was able to enjoy it. This sequel looks to be a kids movie, but the kids who saw the first one are now in their 20s. I hope that I can enjoy “The Incredibles 2” and not worry about it being incredibly cheesy (which Pixar is really good about). Nonetheless, we are all excited to see these characters back in action.
“The Incredibles 2” will take place where the first one left off, the Underminer was reading havoc on the city. The trailer also introduces a new character voiced by Bob Odenkirk who is some sort of mogul. Is he the real villain of the movie? We’ll have to wait and see until the movie comes out on June 15.
