Back in 2004, Pixar released the animated movie The Incredibles, and well, it was incredible! Chances are it left you wanting more, but sadly a sequel never came. That is, until now!
Yes, that’s right, 14 years after the release of the original, Pixar has finally made a second Incredibles movie, and it’s set to hit screens across the globe in 2018.
This isn’t the first time Pixar has made a sequel to a fan favorite many years after the original movie was released. The very first Toy Story movie came out way back in 1995. It was the animation studio’s first feature-length movie. It was also the first feature-length animated movie ever!
Previously, Pixar had been producing short movies to promote their computers, but Disney approached the company after taking notice of one of their short movies called Tin Toy. The movie was told from the perspective of a toy and marked the very beginnings of what would become the mega-hit Toy Story.
Woody and Buzz Lightyear have firmly found their place in the hearts of millions, and so Pixar produced two sequels to the movie in 2000 and in 2010. That’s a lot of time between movies! With 15 years between the first and final movies, people who saw the original movie as a kid could potentially take their own children to the third installment of the franchise!
A similar situation happened with Finding Nemo, another Disney and Pixar collaboration. The first movie was released in 2003, while the sequel came out just last year. That’s 13 years between movies. So what’s the deal? Why does it take so long for Pixar to release sequels to its most beloved movies? Surely fans are chomping at the bit for more of their favorite animated characters.
It turns out the reason has nothing to do with demand, and everything to do with time and money. Making animated movies, especially ones are stunningly beautiful as Pixar’s, takes a very long time, and it is quite costly. Apparently, just the octopus scene in Finding Dory took two years to create. So if Pixar is putting this much care into creating its movies, then the new Incredibles movie is sure to be spectacular.
The Incredibles 2 is set to be in theatres in June 2018, and the original cast including Craig T. Nelson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Holly Hunter will be back for the sequel. The second installment will pick up from where the last movie ended, with Elasigirl fighting crime and Mr. Incredible home with the family. There will be a new villain, and Frozone will reappear to help the family take down their new nemesis.
The trailer, which you can watch below, shows Jack-Jack, the youngest member of the Incredible family, discovering his own superpowers for the first time. He can turn into a fire and has laser vision. Mr. Incredible discovers his wandering son, and, as expected, must deal with the dangers of a baby with superpowers. Perhaps staying at home and taking care of his three children will prove to be his biggest challenge yet.
The wait for The Incredibles 2 may still be long, but for now, enjoy the first new footage of your favorite superheroes in over a decade. If it still leaves you craving more, check out this bonus video revealing 10 secrets about the Pixar universe that will blow your mind!
