The first official image for Pixar’s Incredibles 2 has been released showing the Parr family suited, booted & ready for action
It’s been 13 years since The Incredibles burst onto our screens and into our hearts, and Brad Bird, in collaboration with Pixar, is now officially at work on the sequel. Bob, Helen, Dash, Violet and Jack Jack are all set to return for more domestic comedy and thrilling-yet-stylish action. A big part of Bird’s winning formula was that The Incredibles presented characters that had a relatable dysfunctional-but-loving family dynamic, which, when paired with a visually appealing, mid-century modern inspired animation style, became the foundations for a memorable, timeless hit film.

With Incredibles 2 now in production, fans of the original 2004 film are patiently waiting to see more details and footage from the long-awaited Disney/Pixar sequel released. While we do now have a short teaser trailer, featuring Mr. Incredible and fiery fan-favourite Jack Jack, much of the film’s details remain unknown at this point. It’s clear that the (Incredible) Parr family will be putting aside their family disputes in order to team-up and save the world again, most likely along with the help of Samuel L. Jackson’s Frozone, but as to what the film’s big threat will be this time around we have yet to find out.
Following the aforementioned teaser trailer’s reveal of Bob and baby Jack Jack in the sequel, EW has now unveiled a new image of the complete Parr family line-up, looking as though they’re somewhat taken aback by the appearance of something threatening (with the exception of Jack Jack):
The image could very well be showing the Incredibles where we left them at the end of the first film, with John Ratzenberger’s Underminer rising out of the ground and the supers readying themselves to face him. This would make sense as Bird has made clear that the movie picks right up where The Incredibles left off.
It has been rumoured that the sequel could feature up to 25 new superheroes, which if true will be interesting to see given how the original film kept things mainly focused on the Parr family rather than trying to build an entire universe of characters, like so many big franchises do today. The Incredibles was a superhero movie that reached the mainstream before the trend had hit big, but what continues to separate it from most comic book titles, other than the fact that its animated, is that its more of a satire of the genre than anything else, which is clear right from the beginning of the film with its hilarious hero interviews. Hopefully, Bird will keep a consistent tone here and poke a little good-spirited fun at the current superpower franchises that are dominating the industry.
