Some huge surprises came out of the Pixar and Walt Disney Studios panel at D23 Expo today, including an amazing tribute to Edna E. Mode by fashion icons and designers! The video brought us so much joy, and then the filmmakers gifted us with yet another incredible treat—this beautiful concept art:
Yes, yes, yes!!! It’s so epic!
Brad Bird, director of The Incredibles 2 and the voice of Edna E. Mode, joined chief creative officer of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios John Lasseter in the panel. Bird then introduced the voices of Mr. and Mrs. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter), Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (newcomer Huck Milner), and Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson). Seeing all of these iconic people in one room was absolutely amazing!
Bird also revealed details about The Incredibles 2, which puts the Parr family into an expanded universe that includes new allies and a brand-new villain. Bird said:
“Incredibles 2 is really a family film, it’s just that the family happens to have super powers. They may have super speed or super strength, but they experience the same problems as any family.”
We can already tell it’s going to be amazing. Incredibles 2 hits theaters on June 15, 2018 and we will be staring at this concept art to pass the time.
