Movie Info & Cast
The incredible Parr family is back in this long-overdue sequel from writer-director Brad Bird. Helen, a.k.a. Elastigirl, has an exciting new job: to bring Supers back to the mainstream. Which leaves her husband Bob, Mr. Incredible himself, focusing on the domestic heroics of life at home with their gifted children Violet, Dash, and baby Jack-Jack. Too bad Jack-Jack’s superpowers are starting to emerge, making the little guy a serious handful. There’s homework to help with, and teen angst to face. Oh, and then there’s that new villain threatening the world… Holly Hunter and Craig T. Nelson return as the voices of Elastigirl and Mr. Incredible, with Samuel L. Jackson as their friend Frozone. The cast also includes Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Catherine Keener, John Ratzenberger, Sophia Bush, and Brad Bird as Edna Mode.

Did You Know?
- Writer and Director Brad Bird had stated over the years that he would only do a sequel to The Incredibles (2004) if he could come up with a story that was just as good as, or better than, its predecessor. The idea of Bob (Mr. Incredible) becoming a stay-at-home dad, while Helen (Elastigirl) becomes the breadwinner was there from the beginning, but it took several years for Bird to come up with the perfect story around which to write this idea.
- There is a character reading a newspaper in the film that is dated 1962. However, the Parr family watches the title sequence for The Outer Limits (1963), which first broadcast in 1963 and The Robot Spy (1964) which was first broadcast in 1964. In addition, The Incredibles (2004) was established as taking place in 1970, and this movie takes place within a year after that one.

It was worth the 14 year wait!!!
So worth the 14 year wait!!!
If there’s one quibble with this nimble entertainment, it’s that Bird’s eye-popping flair outpaces his story’s emotional resonance. Incredibles 2 is such a fleet treat that it doesn’t always stop for its characters’ pathos to really connect.
Boosted by central characters that remain vastly engaging and a deep supply of wit, Incredibles 2 certainly proves worth the wait, even if it hits the target but not the bull's eye in quite the way the first one did.
The action sequences in Incredibles 2, which was edited by Stephen Schaffer, are elegantly conceived and fluidly executed, as good as anything we’re likely to see on screen this year, in animation or live action, which only makes the rest of the movie seem that much clunkier by comparison.
