Disney is on an absolute roll right now. Between their acquisition of 20th Century Fox to the roaring success of both the Star Wars and Marvel franchises to the live-action adaptations of beloved animated features, its as if everything Disney touches turns to gold.
One of the most exciting announcements in recent years was Disney and Pixar’s intention to give the people what they want after 14 long years. A sequel to 2004’s smash hit The Incredibles. The hype is real, ladies and gentlemen.
Along with Disney’s most recent 2018 press kit came the very first synopsis of the highly anticipated film. See below:
“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 every one, 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.
Directed by Brad Bird, (‘Iron Giant,’ ‘The Incredibles,’) and produced by John Walker (‘The Incredibles’) and Nicole Grindle (Sanjay’s Super Team’ short, ‘Toy Story 3’ Associate Producer). ‘Incredibles 2’ busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.”
From Jack-Jack’s developing powers to the promise that Helen AKA Elasti-Girl will be getting the spotlight to the return of Samuel Jackson’s Frozone, this first sneak peek into the exciting events of the film is sure to keep fans wanting more for the next few months.
