It may have taken 14 years to get us Incredibles 2, but from the looks of the newest plot details, it’s safe to say that it’s definitely been worth the wait.
According to the Incredibles 2 First Look from Entertainment Weekly, the June 2018 sequel will place Elastigirl at the center of the action, while Mr. Incredible holds down the family’s new and improved home front, all the while dealing with Jack-Jack’s blossoming powers, as we saw in the trailer.
“Incredibles 2 picks up, literally, where the first film left off, with Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl battling The Underminer, while Violet and Dash are stuck with babysitting Jack-Jack,” writer-director Brad Bird told Entertainment Weekly.
And while that’s about all we know for plot details, we’re pumped to see Elastigirl, aka Helen Parr, at the forefront. “Helen’s appetite for adventure comes to the fore,” explained Holly Hunter, who voices Elastigirl and spoke to Entertainment Weekly. “Whereas before, she was driven to become Mrs. Incredible out of necessity, where she went into it to save her husband, I think this time she really meets her own ambition head-on. The ambition of being an adventure is something that we get to explore.”
In addition to Hunter, confirmed characters for the highly anticipated sequel include Mr. Incredible/Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson), Frozone/Lucius Best (Samuel L. Jackson), Violet Parr (Sarah Vowell), and Dash Parr (now voiced by newcomer Huck Milner).
Incredibles 2 is set to hit theaters June 15, 2018. What are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments!
