Since the first film was released in 2004, fans have waited almost fourteen years now for the sequel to Disney’s The Incredibles. But at Disney’s annual D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, director Brad Bird has revealed important details in regards to the movie’s sequel, Incredibles 2.
Not only had it been announced the the sequel was to pick up right off from the first movie, but now we have learned that the main character will be not Mr. Incredible himself, but Elastigirl. From the family of crime-fighting heroes consisting of husband and wife duo Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) and Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) and their children Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dashiell (Spencer Fox) and baby Jack Jack, it’s time for the mother and the wife to take center stage.
After Mr. Incredible’s little trip and return to being a superhero, he is now staying at home to care for the children while Elastigirl will be off on her own adventure. Further updates reveal that Huck Milner will be the new voice of Dash while Samuel Jackson will be returning as Frozone.
Guests at the D23 panel caught a first glimpse of a work in progress, showing baby Jack Jack wandering outdoors while his father sleeps. The first movie teases about the baby’s powers and here we get to see them develop as the youngest child comes face-to-face with a raccoon. How does Jack Jack challenge it? Well, apparently he can multiply.
It’s fundamentally a story about family. […] The technology has gotten so much better; We can get them close to what we wanted to do in the [original]. It’s like driving a better car.
Nicole Paradis Grindle and John Walker are on board to producing Incredibles 2, and the movie is set for release on June 15, 2018.
