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.
