At D23 this afternoon, John Lasseter decided that before the start of the big Animation and Pixar panel he would drop details about the plot of Incredibles 2 to IGN, and they were mighty interesting:
"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 we start this movie," he spilled.
He continued: "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."
This is great news. If you remember: the first film leaves off with the family getting set to do battle with the Underminer, as the Parr family- Helen, Bob and their three children: Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack strike a hero pose and credits rolled. Hopefully this means that we get to see this as a great reintroduction to the world and characters, as it will have been 14 years since the release of the last one in 2004 when this one comes out in 2018. They did also release a video game a year after titled the Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer, but I am sure they will ignore that.
All of your favorites are returning for this one as well, and I could not be more excited for them to be back on the big screen. Look for them on June 15, 2018.
