In 2004 Pixar's The Incredibles launched and our lives were forever changed by the superhero family. Just about everyone, literally, could relate to a character, and the humor was just too glorious. It took us all by storm and we began foaming at the mouth for more, more, MORE! Over the years other hit movies we loved to love put out sequels and we all unanimously demanded a sequel to The Incredibles. But for years no one at Pixar seemed to be listening.
Then somewhere along the way the rumor mill started and excitement rose. The next step was Pixar's announcement this last summer of an official release date! We were frantic. And now in a culmination of excitement that is reaching its peak before next summer, a trailer has been released and we. are. freaking. out.
Yes, at long last, after fourteen agonizing years, we have gotten our first glimpse at the 2018 Incredibles 2.
Can we just take a moment to discuss Pixar's notorious habit of making us go absolutely insane waiting for a sequel, though? Seriously!
But there was a huge perk to the huge gap in between the first movie and the third movie. Many of us who saw Toy Story as children in 1995 ended up taking our own children to Toy Story 3 in 2010. It was kind of, sort of, super special for many of us who loved the movie so much and helped bring an entire new generation to the story.
What the heck is up with Pixar doing this to us? Their movies are so, so, SO good. Why do we have to wait a decade for a sequel?! What is the deal?
Well, the first half of the explanation is obvious: it has nothing to do with demand. The demand is obviously there.
The truth is that it's a matter of time and money. It takes a great deal of both for these perfect works of creativity to get to us. For example, the octopus scene alone in Finding Dory took Pixar TWO YEARS to create. That's how much meticulous thought they put into their movies.
And now at long last after years the time has come for Incredibles 2.
Set to hit theaters in June of 2018 our long, long wait is approaching its end and we are getting the details as they roll in. Incredibles 2 will feature the original cast including Samuel L. Jackson, Craig T. Nelson, and Holly Hunter! It will pick up where the last movie ended, with Elasigirl fighting crime while Mr. Incredible is home with the family. But there will be a new villain and Frozone pops back up to help the family as they battle their new rival!
The highly anticipated trailer that we are so excited to share with you today shows us Jack-Jack, the youngest and freshest member of the superhero family as he discovers his superpowers for the first time. He has more than one ability, turning into fire and laser vision and we get to see Mr. Incredible discover his wandering baby boy. Hilarity ensues as we can all imagine, Mr. Incredible must now tackle the responsibility of wrangling a baby with superpowers. What will be harder for the hero? Fighting crime or rearing his 3 super children?
We may have half a year to go but this teaser has us getting pumped. And we know from experience that the wait will be worth it, which really just makes us so much more excited at this point!
While you wait, check out this video revealing some of Pixar's movie secrets. We can never get enough of those!
