WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Incredibles 2. Read at your own risk.
After nearly 14 years of waiting, Disney and Pixar finally released Incredibles 2 – Brad Bird’s long-awaited sequel to the 2004 animated classic that stands out as one of, if not the best superhero film not based on a pre-existing property.
With that, the film takes place immediately after the first film where the family leave Dash’s track meet and witness the supervillain known as the Underminer drill from underground to unleash his terror against Metroville. The family then don their masks as they prepare to battle the Underminer.
Well, unfortunately the Underminer succeeds in his plans of robbing the Metroville bank and the blame is put upon the Incredibles and Frozone for much of the damages. And by the end of the film, the Underminer remains at large.
Like its predecessor, Incredibles 2 has a remarkable end credits that features some great artwork that brings much of the film’s elements to life in interesting ways. At the tail end of the credits, we see a small Easter Egg that hints at the return of the Underminer in the future. The Easter Egg in question is the image of the Underminer’s drill re-emerging from the ground, teasing that he is still out there for the Incredibles and Frozone to battle with once again.
If we see an Incredibles 3 come into fruition, do you think we will be seeing the Underminer again? After all, he is voiced by Pixar’s good-luck charm John Ratzenberger, who has a voice in every single one of their films since Toy Story.
Here’s the official synopsis for Incredibles 2:
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.
Directed by Brad Bird, Incredibles 2 stars Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Jonathan Banks, Sophia Bush, and Isabella Rossellini.
Incredibles 2 will be released in theaters on June 15, 2018.
The Walt Disney Animation Library, Ranked From Worst To Best
Disney had made an unconventional “franchise” out of remaking its animated classics as live-action blockbusters. Combined with their Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars stables, it has ensured the company’s continued domination in the film sphere. Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book were at the forefront of that charge the last few years. Now, with Beauty and the Beast hitting theaters (our review here), now is a great time to look back at Disney’s amazing animated catalog and how they stack up against each other.
Disney has had a lot of animated films released theatrically or direct-to-video, sometimes in collaboration with other studios. This list specifically focuses on those from the Walt Disney Animation department, so sorry Brave Little Toaster fans, of which I’m one. No Pixar flicks either, but fans of that studio are in luck, as we ranked their films last summer. You can check that list out below.
I haven’t seen Saludos Amigos, Make Music Mine, Song of the South, Melody Time, Fun and Fancy Free, & The Three Caballeros, hence their exclusion. Naturally, we’ll most likely disagree about the specific ordering. Let’s think of it as a conversation starter. I’d love to hear what you guys think in the comments!
