I don’t want to say we told you so but, we told you so! A few days ago we got our first look at Incredibles 2 and we speculated that the movie would pick up right where the first one left off. We just got that confirmed by Pixar chief creative officer, John Lasseter. Lasseter spoke with IGN about the film and had this to say about the sequel’s events:
“It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on,” Lasseter said during an interview at D23 Expo, quipping that only “a minute” will have passed. He added, “It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece. You know that at the end of the first movie when he comes up and you see the family dressed as superheroes, well that’s where start this movie.”
He then went on to say:
“One of the unique things about the Incredibles is it’s really a story of a family set in the world of superheroes. This one carries on that theme,” he said. “It’s awesome, the idea we came up with — simple as that. … We love to really look at our own lives and look at what’s going on, and find themes that we know will resonate with the audience.”
I have to agree, the family dynamic of the first movie was a strong theme that was never overshadowed by the fact that they were superheroes. I know, I know. We waited 14 years just for Jack Jack to be the same damn age!? Yes, yes we did. But come on, you and I both know we won’t be let down by this movie.
