So the much awaited (it took too long!!!) sequel to the Incredibles movie will finally make a punt next year. Honestly, it was like music to my ears (the chimes are beautiful and my eyes are glowing with tears of joy) when I first saw the trailer on Twitter.
Thirteen years!!! Thirteen years when the imagination factory in my head had concocted stories on what could become of our family of heroes in the movie sequel (especially as Jack-Jack had begun to show glimpses of multi-faceted super-power).
However, while Pixar had given us a glimpse of the superpowered Parr family in the first teaser trailer for a forthcoming sequel, they revealed absolutely nothing about the movie’s plot.
So I did a bit of digging and found out that Incredibles 2 will pick up immediately where the first movie left off. According to the film’s official plot synopsis, “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 must find a way to work together again — which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.”
According to ew.com, The Incredibles 2 reunites a voice cast that includes Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter and Samuel L. Jackson with original writer-director Brad Bird in an adventure that will see Hunter’s character Helen, AKA Elastigirl, take centre stage, leaving Bob, also known as Mr. Incredible (Nelson), to contend with the challenges of domestic life.
The film will also see the Parr’s youngest member, baby Jack-Jack, begin to develop his own nascent powers.
The Incredibles 2 is released in US cinemas on 14 June 2018, and UK cinemas on 13 July.
