14 years after the original movie arrived, Pixar and Disney are finally serving up The Incredibles 2, the long-awaited sequel to Brad Bird’s animated superhero classic.
To keep things fresh, the follow-up will swap the roles of Bob and Helen Parr from the first film. While Helen (Holly Hunter) gets to return to hero duty as Elastigirl, Bob (Craig T. Nelson) has to hang up his Mr. Incredible suit for a while and play house-husband – which mostly involves looking after his frighteningly-powered baby, Jack-Jack.
Now, to build anticipation ahead of release, Pixar’s debuted a new trailer which teases what looks to be another home run for the studio. Seriously, all signs point to the team being able to re-capture the magic of the first outing, as The Incredibles 2 appears to be another delightfully delicious piece of Pixar pie and we can’t wait to see more footage.

When we’ll get to do just that is obviously unknown, but with the marketing campaign now heating up, it shouldn’t be too much longer before the blitz truly begins. Until then, here’s the official plot synopsis for the pic, which outlines more of what we can expect.
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “The Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life/ It’s a tough transition for every one, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers.
When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again – which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
Beyond that, we don’t know too much, but rest assured that the Parr family will be back for more when The Incredibles 2 hits theaters on June 15th.
