Did you realize that The Incredibles hit the big screen for the first time back in 2004? I couldn’t believe the time lapse between the two films. That thought quickly faded during the opening scene. The crowd immediately went wild in the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood where we screened Incredibles 2 to a packed house of Disney media fans. It was so awesome being around other families that were almost equally engaged in the second go-round about this hilarious and adventurous family.
The Incredible family is on another adventure, this time with Mom leading the way. They encounter a sister-brother duo who’s on a mission to make superheroes legal again. Things take a big twist and as it unravels, you’ll watch them go against the screen time issue that most families battle, the ever-changing workforce with moms leading the way, dad is tortured by the “newage” math that has interrupted generations and they still find time to fight crime!
Incredibles 2 is action packed from start to finish. Brad Bird really went inside the American family and shed light on the modern-day daily grind or hustle and bustle that it takes to keep everything and everyone all together. This time around we see roles change, such as ElasticGirl or Mom go to work becoming the breadwinner for the family. Naturally Mr. Incredible has to follow suit and stay home to manage the house and kids. It was so hilarious watching them both juggle their “reversed” roles. The kids were just kids. Homework issues, social issues, and little Jack-Jack always made sure to keep dad on his toes. Just when Mr. Incredible thought it was safe to relax, baby Jack Jack was waiting around the corner waiting with mischief.
I’m not big on spoilers, so I’ll just say this. Incredibles 2 definitely taps into the various roles of the family. Take the entire family and you’ll laugh out loud together and probably have a good conversation on the ride home. That’s what happened to my family, wishing the same to yours. In theaters nationally June 15!!
I love the clip below because it is so real. It really delves into my imagination of a long day with a busy baby. LOL take a peep 🙂 Baby Jack Jack steals the show just being himself.
BABY STEPS – For both “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2,” filmmakers studied real-life
babies to capture baby Jack-Jack’s movements.
Directed by: Brad Bird
Written by: Brad Bird
Produced by: John Walker, P.G.A., Nicole Paradis Grindle, P.G.A.
Starring: Holly Hunter and Craig T. Nelson return as the voices of Helen and Bob Parr. Sarah Vowell once again
provides the voice of the teen-queen of sarcasm Violet, while Huck Milner joins the cast as the voice of 10-year-old Dash,
and Samuel L. Jackson reprises his role as the voice of Lucius Best – aka Frozone.
In INCREDIBLES 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Incredibles 2 opens nationwide on June 15
