Pixar Chief Confirms that INCREDIBLES 2 Picks Up Exactly Where Original Left Off
Though fourteen years will have passed since audiences last saw the wacky and slightly dysfunctional superhero family of The Incredibles, it appears that the sequel, which is coming June 15, 2018, will pick up “a minute” where their first adventure left off.
In a recent interview with IGN, Pixar chief creative office John Lasseter commented that not much time will have passed since we left the Parr family.
“It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on… It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece. 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 start this movie.”
“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.”
The funny thing about pretending as if no time has passed of course is that time has elapsed. Remember Craig T. Nelson? Exactly. He voiced the Bob, the dad, believe it or not. Holly Hunter, who still hangs around TV shows, is his wife. Holly and Samuel L. Jackson (best friend and fellow superhero Frozne) are currently listed as returning.
Also returning is director Brad Bird, who has since directed a Mission: Impossible sequel and won an Oscar for Ratatouille.
