Disney•Pixar has unveiled a new teaser trailer for The Incredibles sequel, Incredibles 2. The teaser is only 50 seconds long and doesn’t give away much about the plot, but it does show Jack-Jack is showing off a wide range of new superpowers. The studio also released a new poster and photo from the long-awaited animated sequel.
The voice cast includes Craig T. Nelson as Bob, Holly Hunter as Helen, Sarah Vowell as Violet, Huck Milner as Dash, and Samuel L. Jackson. Brad Bird directed the 2004 original film, which earned the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film, and returned for the sequel. In between directing The Incredibles and Incredibles 2, Bird directed 2007’s Academy Award winning Ratatouille and 2015’s live-action Tomorrowland.
The Incredibles opened in theaters on November 5, 2004 and rang up $70 million domestically over its opening weekend. That $70 million was enough to take over second place on the highest opening weekend for an animated film chart as of 2004. The PG-rated animated family-friendly superhero movie grossed more than $633 million worldwide before exiting theaters.
John Walker (The Incredibles) and Nicole Grindle (Sanjay’s Super Team short, Toy Story 3 associate producer) produced the sequel. Disney•Pixar’s targeting a June 15, 2018 theatrical release.
The Plot: Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in Incredibles 2 – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. 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 (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
