After a long, long wait, the second installment of The Incredibles is almost here. The first trailer for the upcoming animated superhero film was released by Pixar on February 14 and it gives us some wonderful scenarios into the life of our favourite superhero family. Disney had released a short teaser back in November which focused on Mr. Incredible discovering that baby Jack jack has superpowers and is astonished.
However the recently released trailer throws light on Elastigirl, who is out saving the world while Mr Incredible will be covering the home ground and looking after the family isn’t that kinda awkward!! From helping Dash in his math homework to handling Jack Jack’s superpower fits and asking Edna Mode for advice, much of the trailer focuses on Bob’s life while playing Mr. Mom for the kids.
But with the spotlight shifting on Elastigirl that is Helen Parr this time, will The Incredibles 2 be able to live up to the trend of presenting strong female superheroes like the previous Wonder Woman? The trailer ends with Edna Mode saying, “Done properly, parenting is a heroic act?” and we are left confused on what to expect.
This time too, the Incredibles family teams up with Frozone to fight The Underminer. But there are also some new characters on the scene. Bob Odenkirk plays a seemingly evil telecommunications guy, and Catherine Keener is all set to play his nerdy sister. Sophia Bush is also said to voice a new superhero named Voyd.
Holly Hunter, Craig T Nelson, Sarah Vowell, Samuel L Jackson and John Ratzenberger all return as Elastigirl, Mr Incredible, Violet, Frozone and The Underminer, respectively but 24-year-old Spencer Fox had to be replaced by Huck Milner as the young Dash. The film is Written and directed by Brad Bird. The Incredibles 2 is all set to hit the theaters on June 15, 2018.
