The D23 Expo is underway and there’s been some interesting and exciting news having specifically to do with The Incredibles 2. One of the returning characters is, of course, Samuel L. Jackson’s Frozone. While at D23, Jackson compared Frozone to another character who resides in a superhero universe: Nick Fury from the MCU. Jackson says that they’re both different characters, obviously, and that Nick Fury is “just kind of angry” whereas Frozone isn’t.
“Well you know it’s different being in a studio and being on set and looking at people that are bigger than you and have super powers. At least in this one I have powers. When I’m Nick Fury I’m just kind of the only guy in the movie that really doesn’t have powers. I’m just kind of angry, but anger can be a power.”
We’ll be seeing Jackson back as Nick Fury in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War. And with Incredibles 2, Frozone will be taking to the streets alongside the Parr family. This time around, however, the story will be focusing more on Elastigirl, which is really exciting. The film has also been confirmed to be taking place immediately after the events of the first movie (the power of animation).
Are you excited that Samuel L. Jackson will be back as Frozone? Let us know in the comments below!
The Incredibles 2 will be directed by Brad Bird and 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!
