    D23: Pixar’s “The Incredibles 2”


    d23-pixars-the-incredibles-2-696x464.jpg


    Appearing at the D23 expo this weekend, Pixar and Disney Animation chief John Lasseter has confirmed that the upcoming “The Incredibles” sequel will kick off immediately after the events of the first film. He tells IGN:

    “It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on. 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.”

    Don’t expect Underminer to be the central villain, rather it’s a starting point to help show off the Parr family’s new status as a family of superheroes:

    “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. 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.”

    One key difference is Holly Hunter’s Elastigirl will be the star of the film this time around. She will be doing much of the adventuring while her husband will be home with the baby Jack Jack – a home that is now redesigned to be partially a superhero lair.

    There’s been one minor change with Huck Milner taking over the voice of Dash, otherwise all the cast is back including Samuel L. Jackson as Frozone.

    A brief clip was shown at D23 in which Jack Jack wanders outdoors after his dad falls asleep and gets into a confrontation with a racoon – leading him to display a new superpower trick of multiplication.

    Filmmaker Brad Bird returns to direct and pen the new film which will open in cinemas on June 15th 2018.

    The Incredibles 2
    Director: Brad Bird (“Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” “The Iron Giant”)
    Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Catherine Keener, Bob Odenkirk
    Details: We’ve been subjected to so many sequels from Pixar in recent years, it’s understandable to be tired of them at this point – but “The Incredibles” is an exception. Dubbed both the best Bond & “Fantastic Four” films that aren’t a part of those franchises, Brad Bird’s original superhero family tale often ranks as one of the best features the company has ever produced.

    With Bird returning to the fold for the follow-up, which takes place immediately after the events of the 2004 film, there’s plenty of reason to get excited. In the new outing Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible is left to care for baby Jack-Jack while Helen/Elastigirl is out saving the world this time from a villain with a sinister plot. Almost everyone is back from composer Michael Giacchino to the whole voice cast. An exception is Spencer Fox as Dash as the young actor had gone through puberty – resulting in his voice changing. Huck Milner is stepping in to replace him.

Nelson) and Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) and their children, Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dashiell (Huck Milner) and baby Jack Jack along with Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Incredible’s oldest friend Frozone. Brad Bird will reprise his role as Edna ‘E’ Mode, who creates super suits for the world’s heroes.

    “Incredibles 2” Setting Ticket Pre-Sales Record


    incredibles-2-concept-crop-no-wm-696x392.jpg


    Disney and Pixar’s animated “The Incredibles” sequel is looking to be a massive hit. The film is reportedly on track to be the top animated pre-seller of all time on Fandango.

    In fact it has sold more tickets than 2016’s “Finding Dory,” the current record holder, had at this time in its lifecycle. Brad Bird returns to write and direct the film fourteen years after the original film hit theaters. It is tracking for a $140-million plus debut in North America.

    “Incredibles 2” picks up shortly after the events of the first film, and follows the Parr family as Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible adjusts to life as a house husband while his wife Helen/Elastigirl spends her time fighting crime. Eventually the family must team up to fight a new villain called Screenslaver.

    How incredible is Incredibles 2? The critics give their verdicts


    _101983082_incredibles2.jpg


    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-44451836


    Fourteen years on from The Incredibles, a sequel to Pixar's hit animation has arrived - and it's "worth the wait".

    That's the verdict of the Hollywood Reporter, which praises its "engaging" characters and "deep supply of wit".

    Screen International lauds the film's "kinetic elan", while Forbes called it "funny, thoughtful and thrilling".

    Variety, though, says Brad Bird's film - out in the US on Friday and the UK on 13 July - "is not... the great sequel" his 2004 original deserves.

    Picking up where the first film left off, Incredibles 2 sees its cartoon clan of clandestine superheroes fight to have "supers" accepted again by society.

    This involves Helen Parr going out to fight crime under her "Elastigirl" alter-ego, while husband Bob - aka "Mr Incredible" - stays home and minds the kids.

    We rewatched this the other day, my youngest daughter (now 15) barely remembered it. I kinda feel like it's a mistake to pick up right where the previous movie left off after all these years. So often, that just doesn't work because your audience has moved on.
