After 14 years of waiting, Pixar fans everywhere are getting ready to don their super-suits and line up to see The Incredibles 2, the much anticipated follow-up to the beloved animated superhero movie that released back in 2004. Last month, we got our first look at the sequel in the form of a short teaser featuring the loveable baby Jack-Jack, but the big question now is: when will the first full-length trailer land?
Well, thanks to a new report from Deadline, we may know the answer. Alongside expected spots for upcoming Marvel movies like Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, the outlet predicts that Disney will also unveil a new trailer for The Incredibles 2 during this year’s Super Bowl. There’s no confirmation on that from the studio just yet, mind you, but it sure does seem likely at this point.
After all, things are clearly heating up for the project. Just this week, we got some info on the new characters joining the sequel as well as a look at their designs (see the gallery below). Specifically, we now know that Bob Odenkirk and Catherine Keener are playing Winston and Evelyn Deaver, brother and sister business partners who are apparently looking to use their PR skills to turn around the world’s opinion on the outlawed supers.
As far as plot details go, The Incredibles 2 will begin where the original left off, with the Underminer’s attack on Metroville serving as an epic opening set piece. It will also bump Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) up to the role of protagonist. Due to Helen and Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) making a new domestic arrangement, Elastigirl will take over crime-fighting duties while Mr. Incredible looks after the kids at home.
Beyond that, we don’t know much, but rest assured that the Parr family will be back for more when The Incredibles 2 hits theaters on June 15th. As for that potential Super Bowl trailer, we’ll be sure to let you know if and when it’s confirmed.
