June 15th is so close yet so far away. Since The Incredibles 2 was first announced, the superhero family has became the center of the conversation in animation, and there’s no doubt that it will be the biggest animated feature of the year.
Luckily fans got to indulge in the big trailer that Disney/PixarPixar has just dropped during the 2018 Winter Olympics! Fourteen years after the prequel that made us fall in love with the suburban yet heroic family, Bob “Mr, Incredible”, Helen “Elastigirl, Violet, Dash & Jack-Jack are back with more adventures on their hands. While “Elastigirl” is out fighting crime and campaigning for the return of supers, Mr. Incredible may be facing the biggest challenge back at home, watching the kids and discovering baby Jack-Jack’s secret powers.
In July 2017, director Brad Bird announced that Elastigirl will be the focus of the sequel. Back in 2015 he explained to CinemaBlend about why the film will not “comment on modern superhero movies”.
“I don’t think that kind of idea stays interesting for very long. You can kind of get a cheap laugh for the moment. I think you want to go longer range than that.”
Disney/Pixar’s Incredibles 2 will be in theaters on June 15, 2018, one year earlier than its original release date.
