First Reactions For Incredibles 2 Are Overwhelmingly Positive


Pixar fans have been waiting a whopping 14 years for Brad Bird’s beloved animated superhero movie from 2004 to get a sequel and now, it’s finally just around the corner in the form of Incredibles 2, which sees the return of Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl and their super-powered brood. The question is, though, will it be able to live up to all the hype and measure up to the original?

With the movie having premiered last night in Los Angeles, initial reactions to the sequel are now in and, thank Frozone, they’re overwhelmingly positive. Not everyone’s totally in love with it, but the majority of critics seem to dig what Pixar’s cooked up here.

Check out a selection of Tweets below to see what people are saying:

So, what can we gather about Incredibles 2 from these reactions? Well, apparently it’ll have “great action sequences” as well as a “family dynamic [that] is brilliant” which allows for some “strong character development.” That said, even if there’s lots for the Parr family to do, we can expect the side characters to steal the show. Most of these Tweets praise baby Jack-Jack as the highlight of the film, calling him “hilarious” and “a scene-stealer.” The same can be said for Edna Mode, the diminutive fashion designer voiced by director Brad Bird himself.

All of this comes as a huge relief for those looking forward to the movie. Pixar is usually reliable at delivering belated sequels that live up to the classic originals – see: Toy Story 3 and Finding Dory for more examples – so it’s good to know they’ve done it again. Hopefully, the full reviews for Incredibles 2 will be just as glowing when they arrive next week ahead of the film’s June 15th release.
