Since its character tease a few weeks ago, the sequel to Pixar’s The Incredibles has been the animation on everyone’s minds.
Perhaps, with Black Panther on this weekend's horizon, it hasn't been the superhero movie on everyone’s minds, but with its first trailer dropping today (adding to the teaser from last year), that may very well change.
Incredibles 2 is the only Pixar film on their 2018 slate and a follow-up to 2004's universally loved film, whose super-subject matter has only become more dominant in the years since its release. And it's picking up right where the last one left off.
Take a look:
This Olympics-airing sneak peek at the upcoming film (that gives us the first glimpse at Bob Odenkirk's sleazy Winston Deavor) is also accompanied by a trio of new posters:
We also got a new synopsis:
In Incredibles 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered.
Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Bob navigating (or failing to navigate) normal life is the premise of the trailer and the posters, which all show him doing super-laundry on their Enda Mode-created costumes. The posters embody the dissatisfaction felt by the former hero when his wife Elastigirl takes the spotlight, and leaves him as a stay-at-home dad who falls asleep reading to the baby and can't figure out math homework.
Incredibles 2 comes out June 15. Will you be watching?
