Incredibles-2-Poster

As the calendar turns closer and closer to June 15, the world waits in anticipation for Pixar’s Incredibles 2. It’s been 14 years since director Brad Bird first introduced us to the super family in 2004, and demand has been high for a sequel. Hype just intensified as Disney released a new poster and trailer for the film.

The poster, above, is dynamic and sleek. Stylistically, it’s very Bird-esque with a ’60s flare and the inclusion of a monorail. This is a bygone vision of a polished, tech-savvy future that never quite materialized in this form. The poster prominently features Frozone, Edna Mode, and Jack-Jack, assuring us if we weren’t already aware that these fan favorites are back. We also get our first look at the supposed villain, looming overhead, as well as a mysterious group of unidentified supers in the background. Mr. Incredible holds Jack-Jack, hinting at his arc of being the parent to stay home with the kids this time around while Elastgirl saves the day. We also see Jack-Jack innocently laser-beaming a poor raccoon… it may just be a simple poster gag, but something in me hopes that this raccoon is a main character.

Also hot off the press is a new trailer, giving us a major peek into the plot of the film and revealing a few more fan-serviced moments that audiences have waited 14 years for.

 

While the full film arrives in theaters June 15, beginning May 18 guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney California Adventure can see the entire opening sequence of the movie during a special sneak peek happening in both parks. Frozone himself, Samuel L. Jackson, broke the news on the Disney Parks Blog.

 

Welcome back, Parr family!

    I get the feeling from alot of these trailers that there is a huge
    section/plotine from the movie that is being completely left out of
    them. Alot of what was in this trailer is stuff we already saw or knew
    was happening based on the teaser. Perhaps to show more would reveal
    some major spoilers, so it makes sense if they are doing it like that. I
    just hope it does not turn out to be a surprise villan twist in a
    Disney movie yet again.

      An absent character is the bad guy’s sister, Evelyn Deavor, who will probably be revlealed to be pulling the strings, another thing is the other superheroes seen the in poster, they’ll probably be used for gags and few action set-pieces.

    Finally good action is displayed in the trailer, I was surprised by the portal loop dash was running from (inspired by the video game Portal) it looked really cool.
    Other than that the story is still a role reversal of the first movie, Elastigirl and Mr.Mom.
    And the villain will obviously be the guy who hires supers like the first movie. So am not excited about the story.

    The Incredibles was a satire of superheroes at the time, now superhero movies have changed so much, inc-2 looks out of touch. Just like Big Hero 6, a movie that feels it was made 10 years ago.

    The only thing reflecting our time in the movie is Screen-Slaver using screens
    ( *cough* phones *cough* ) to enslave people and mind-wash them another thing is a feminist theme around Elatigirl, a character who didn’t need such thing cuz she held her own amazingly in the first movie and should know better not to be tricked to work with a bad guy like her husband did.

      Hmm…I politely disagree. There’s going to be a LOT of nostalgia surrounding this movie, coming from fans of the first. We don’t necessarily need Pixar to reinvent the wheel with this one if they can give us more memorable moments with these much-loved characters. I agree that Incredibles 2 is coming out in a different film era, but I still think it will more than hold its own.
      But yes, Elastigirl is and always will be amazing. 🙂
