The Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2 Teaser #1 (2018) *Jack-Jack’s Back!*

Of all the original batch of Pixar films, The Incredibles seemed to lend itself most easily to multiple sequels, but-to his credit-Brad Bird didn’t have the story, so a sequel was never made.  At any other studio, they’d have just gone ahead and made one without a story (outside Pixar and inside Disney they still would have; it’s why we have five Pirates films instead of one).  But Pixar and Bird have waited until they had a story to tell that picks up largely where we last left the Fantastic Four.  I meant The Incredibles.  Clearly.  They’re nothing alike.  For one thing, The Incredibles have made a film…..and another will be coming June 15, 2018, picking up essentially where we left the super family at the end of the first film.

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 transition 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.

  1. The Fantastic 4 thing is hard to ignore, but since

    A. You snooze you loose

    And

    B. The Incredibles is better than F4 ever was

    It is entirely acceptable. I was sold on this the moment Bird said his script was mainly unused ideas from the first film. If he is telling the truth, this film will come from the same creative well and it will be… incredible.

      1. Me neither. I just have one fervent hope: that the new villain lives up to Syndrome. Because unlike most current superhero flicks, where you can almost count on the villain being the big weak link, Syndrome had a meaningful connection to the hero, his motivation was fleshed out and understandable, his master plan was interesting instead of revolving around the theft of some macguffin, the conflict he created actually had to do with the film’s theme (that’s another thing, the movie actually had something to say) and he was a genuine psychopath willing to do recognizably vile and evil things, like killing a man’s entire family, and that made him an actual threat to be feared instead of a cardboard cutout. I’m not saying he’s the greatest character in the world because he’s not, but he’s better than Ares and Steppenwolf and (God help us) Eisenberg”s Lex and Kingsley’s “Mandarin.”

      2. I think if Brad Bird waited 13 years because he didn’t want to sully this, he has something up his sleeve we won’t expect, but this was a perfect teaser. 54 seconds and we’re reminded why we loved this film so much, and why I think it’s one of the three best super hero films of all-time still.

      3. Road to Perdition is better than Dark Knight IMO. If we are talking about comic book movies in general, and not just superheroes, there might be a few others that top Dark Knight too. I would have to think, and right now my brain is jangled after trying to process the insane changes of mood in Okja.
