The trailer shows the character Jack-Jack using his various powers to walk toward the superhero family’s logo. He uses eye lasers to write the “II” symbol in the logo. Afterward, we see a delighted Bob (Mr. Incredible) lifting up Jack-Jack and praising him for having powers.
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.
The Incredibles, as a film, will always be one of my favorite Disney/Pixar movies to this day. I rewatched that DVD countless times, over and over again. I was so engrossed. With that said, this sequel will definitely have some mighty big shoes to fill.
The Incredibles had wit, charm, action and everything else you would want from a movie.
When June rolls around next year, expect me in theaters with bated breath. It’s about darn time.
