Finally! 10 Days Until Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2, teaser

Posted by Joanna • June 5, 2018

“The Incredibles are finally back!”

Incredibles 2 releases in theatres in just 10 days and Pixar are celebrating by sharing some new footage of the sequel that we’ve been asking for for almost 13 years. Watch below:

It’s great to see some more Parr family interaction in this teaser – Incredibles 2 will see Mr Incredible, or Bob Parr, facing the more relatable challenge of being a stay at home parent. He may have super strength, but raising three kids on your own requires an entirely different set of superpowers…

Incredibles 2 releases on June 15th. Have you got your tickets booked yet? Let us know when you’re seeing it and how excited you are on our Twitter and Facebook!

Incredibles 2 Soundtrack Cover And Playlist Revealed

Incredibles 2, Soundtrack, The Incredibles 2

Posted by Joanna • June 1, 2018

The Incredibles 2 soundtrack cover and playlist has been revealed, and it’s already ticking all the boxes for us! Check out the cover art below:

I’ve always loved how stylised the art is for the Incredibles franchise – it’s bold and vibrant, just like the soundtracks Michael Giacchino has composed for them. We’ve already heard some excerpts of the new soundtrack in the variety of teasers and trailers that have been released over the past few months, particularly in the latest 1-minute clip that we posted about earlier in the week. It didn’t really seem possible that a soundtrack could sound more upbeat and more exciting than the original The Incredibles soundtrack, but Giacchino’s composing superpowers appear to have achieved the impossible!

Have a look at the full playlist below (minor spoilers ahead):

1. Episode 2
2. A Tony Perspective
3. Consider Yourselves Undermined!
4. A Matter of Perception
5. Diggin’ the New Digs
6. This Ain’t My Super-Suit?
7. Elastigirl Is Back
8. Train of Taut
9. Rocky vs. Jack-Jack
10. Ambassador Ambush
11. Hero Worship
12. Searching for a Screenslaver
13. Super Legal Again
14. Renouncing the Renunciation
15. World’s Worst Babysitters
16. Helen of Ploy
17. A Dash of Reality
18. Hydrofoiled Again
19. Jack Splat
20. A Bridge Too Parr
21. Together Forever and Deavor
22. Elastigirl’s Got a Plane to Catch
23. Looks Like I Picked the Wrong Week to Quit Oxygen
24. Happily After-Deavor
25. Out and a Bout
26. Incredits 2
27. Here Comes Elastigirl – Elastigirl’s Theme
28. Chill or Be Chilled – Frozone’s Theme
29. Pow! Pow! Pow! – Mr. Incredible’s Theme
30. Devtechno!
31. Chad Tonight Talk Show Theme
32. Chad Tonight Newscast Bumper

So what kind of plot information can we glean from the titles? Looks like Elastigirl will be taking the pilot’s seat again (“Elastigirl’s Got A Plane To Catch”), and I can only assume that “Rocky vs. Jack-Jack” is referring to a face-off between Jack-Jack and his raccoon nemesis. “Looks Like I Picked The Wrong Week To Quit Oxygen” certainly sounds dramatic! We’ll just have to wait until June 15th to find out what on earth that could mean.

You can pre-order the Incredibles 2 soundtrack on Amazon.com now.

New Incredibles 2 Clip: Taking On The Underminer!

Incredibles 2

Posted by Joanna • May 29, 2018

Incredibles takes place right where The Incredibles left off – a superhero family fight against The Underminer. Today, Entertainment Weekly posted a new, 1-minute clip of this hugely anticipated action scene, and so far, it does not disappoint! The action sequences are just as exciting as ever, and we still love the unique twist that the family dynamic brings into play. You can watch the clip here, brought to you by EW.

From the teasers and trailers that have been released over the past few months, a lot of this footage isn’t completely new to us, but it’s amazing to see how it all ties together. And listen to that stunning Michael Giacchino soundtrack! It’s difficult not to notice the backgrounds too – the city is looking so much bigger and busier than it did back in 2004. Pixar really have come a long way.

The Incredibles (2004)

Incredibles 2 (2018)

The comparison really speaks for itself – the city in Incredibles 2 just looks so much more real!

Incredibles 2 releases in US theatres on June 15th, and you can preorder your tickets already.

Incredibles 2 Merch – Will You Be Buying Your Own Super Suit?

Incredibles 2, Merchandise

Posted by Joanna • May 27, 2018

Well done, super-fans! You’ve waited patiently for over 13 years, and now Incredibles 2 is only half a month away! Have you noticed all the new merchandise appearing on store shelves? Of course we were all expecting the Disney Store to come out with a good amount of Incredibles 2 merch, but we’re loving the variety of their range! You can browse their selection here.

Some of my personal favourites have to be the Incredible Mom and Dad mugs (and yes, the UK versions switch ‘Mom’ for ‘Mum’!). Father’s Day is on the 17th of June this year, which just happens to fall on Incredibles 2‘s release weekend. Perfect Father’s Day gift, perhaps?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shop Disney also has plenty in the way of toys and action figures, including a Jack-Jack and Raccoon Boxing Puppet Set – ridiculous, in all the best ways. There are also super-costumes and super-t-shirts for the whole family.

But if you’re looking for Incredibles 2 merch, then your search doesn’t need to stop with the official Disney store! Walmart are selling this amazingly detailed Jack-Jack doll, which comes with his raccoon nemesis (although they look like they’re on much friendlier terms here). We already know from the end of the original The Incredibles that Jack-Jack has gained a large variety of somewhat unstable superpowers – this doll takes inspiration from this by being able to change colours to replicate some of his different powers, such as teleportation and electricity.

Walmart are getting in on the action too, selling Incredibles 2-themed bedding, figures, and playsets.

How much Incredibles 2 merch do you already own? Will you be arriving at the theatre on June 15th in your newly bought super suit..? We’re pretty sure Edna Mode wouldn’t be too happy about us buying supersuits from anywhere but her own studio, but at least we’re trying our best.

New Incredibles 2 Teaser: Learn More About The New Supers

Incredibles 2

Posted by Joanna • May 23, 2018

Today Pixar released details and clips about some new supers that we’ll be seeing in the highly anticipated The Incredibles sequel, presented by Sophia Bush (the voice of superhero Voyd). Watch below:

We’ve known about Voyd for a while now, but in this teaser her confident personality definitely seems to be shining through. She’s part of a team of ‘wannabe’ supers, and her power is creating voids or portals. Very interdimensional. It’s great to see the colour and style of the concept art for Voyd translating beautifully to the 3D medium.

In addition to Voyd, this teaser also introduced us to some other interesting supers: The Indestructible Brick, The High-Flying Screech, and Super Senior Reflux. And those, according to Sophia Bush, are “just the starting line-up”. The Indestructible Brick seems to be pretty self-explanatory, The High-Flying Screech can emit powerful screeches, and can also fly with the help of a pair of wings, and Super Senior Reflux…he has super-powered reflux. The ‘wannabe’ supers also include He-Lectrix and Krushauer, who can shoot lightning bolts and use telekinesis respectively. Have a look at this unlikely bunch below.

With the leaps in technology since the release of the original The Incredibles in 2004, it’ll be amazing to see the creative, exciting designs and powers of all the new supers we’ll be meeting in Incredibles 2. Elastigirl’s super stretching abilities were (there’s no better word for it) incredible from an animation standpoint in 2004 – just think of what Pixar might surprise us with now!

“Suit Up!” – New Incredibles 2 Sneak Peek

Incredibles 2, Trailer

Posted by Joanna • May 11, 2018

Incredibles 2 is set to release in the US in just over a month (June 15th) – can you believe it? You can even book your cinema tickets now! Today we were given an extra sneak peek into the family life and superhero life of the incredible Parr family. Watch below:

This sneak peek is jam-packed with new clips, even in addition to the Japanese trailer that we posted about a couple of weeks ago. We haven’t seen much of Jack Jack’s raccoon friend in trailers released so far (despite it being featured at the initial Incredibles 2 D23 exhibition last year), but this sneak peek has Jack Jack happily chasing the raccoon around the garden with his laser vision.

Jack Jack continues to be very endearing, a stark contrast to his seemingly terrifying superpowers.

It’s great to see those familiar family dynamics coming back into play too – Violet’s seeming a little ‘sassier’ than usual, but what can you expect when your mom has some mysterious new superhero job, even though supers are still a bit of a contentious subject?

“What exactly *is* Mom’s new job?”

Pixar also released a little teaser today – take a look at some of the Incredibles 2 cast (Samuel L. Jackson, who voices Frozone,  Sophia Bush, who voices Voyd, and Craig T. Nelson, who voices Mr Incredible) setting a few “ground rules” below. Look at those amazing crew shirts!

Incredibles 2 comes out in exactly 35 days (!!). What are you most excited about?

Our Favorite Pixar Movies Are Taking Flight!

Incredibles 2, Pixar, Toy Story, WALL-E

Posted by Joanna • May 5, 2018

You may remember that last year, in the run-up to the release of Coco, Pixar teamed up with Southwest Airlines and unveiled a Coco themed airplane, and it seems like this is becoming somewhat of a trend.

To celebrate the opening of Toy Story Land in Shanghai, China Eastern Airlines worked with the Shanghai Disney Resort to create an entirely Toy Story themed plane. The outside is boldly painted with a giant Buzz Lightyear. Let’s hope his flying is flying rather than “falling with style” this time! It took its first flight at the end of April.

And it’s not just the outside that’s been adorned with Toy Story characters and references – the inside really goes the extra mile. The ceiling is decorated with those familiar Toy Story clouds, and all the seats have one of the many popular characters on them, including Woody, Jessie, Rex, Trixie, and even Lotso (Lotso is a big thing in China – who knew?). Passengers are even served Toy Story themed refreshments, offered Toy Story themed headphones, and given commemorative Toy Story boarding passes to take away as a souvenir.

© Disney

But Toy Story isn’t the only Pixar movie franchise that has been upgraded to first class – today, Pixar revealed the all new Incredibles 2 Alaska Air plane! To celebrate Alaska Airlines Aviation Day, the plane was unveiled today in Seattle and it couldn’t look more super.

“These characters are among the most celebrated characters in the Pixar family. After waiting 14 years to see them on the big screen again, fans will love seeing them on their Alaska Airlines plane, too.”

(Incredibles 2 producers Nicole Grindle and John Walker)

Pixar also posted timelapse footage, showing how the Incredibles 2 plane came to life. Watch it below:

If you look closely, you’ll see a very concerned raccoon on the tail of the plane, almost as if it’s holding on for dear life. This raccoon has been hinted as being Jack Jack’s arch nemesis in the eagerly awaited Incredibles sequel.

It’s amazing, and oddly inspiring, to think that these planes are making flights in our skies at the moment – the sky’s the limit! Or is it? Here’s some news that’s a bit more cosmic in ambition: NASA have named two of their satellites after WALL-E and EVE, the lovebird robots from 2008’s WALL-E. They’re to be launched into space this weekend, on course for Mars!

The satellites are maybe a bit of a one-off thing, but it seems likely that Pixar themed airplanes will be something we’ll see again in the future! Let us know if you’re ever lucky enough to book a flight on one of them.

New Incredibles 2 Footage!

Incredibles 2, Trailer

Posted by Joanna • April 30, 2018

Pixar have sneakily been teasing more Incredibles 2 footage, and you may have missed it.

International trailers often contain different clips to appeal to different audiences, and this new Japanese Incredibles 2 trailer is no different. These international trailers can sometimes be a little more prone to containing things that could be considered spoilers, so tread carefully, but as someone who is usually very wary of spoilers, I wouldn’t consider this to be spoiler-heavy at all. Watch below:

Known as Incredible Family (インクレディブル ファミリー) in Japan, the new Incredibles 2 trailer focuses more on the individual family members, giving each of them a brief introduction and showcasing some of their heroic moments that we can look forward to seeing on the big screen this summer. There’s also more action-packed footage of the Underminer battle that presumably is the opening of the sequel.

From the latest US trailer, it’s already been established that Violet might be ‘having adolescence’, but this trailer goes even deeper and shows off some more of her amazingly exaggerated moody expressions.

Super siblings with attitude.

We also get to see Jack Jack being (perhaps deceivingly) very sweet, pointing to his mom when he sees her on the TV.

Loving how they’re reusing that old footage that played at the start of The Incredibles!

And what’s this?! Is this that raccoon we’ve been hearing so much about?

The raccoon character has already been teased in posters, concept art, and way back at D23.

All those new Elastigirl action scenes are definitely a welcome sight too.

The Japanese roughly translates to ‘human rubber mom – Helen’.

A Japanese Incredibles 2 poster has also been released. It seems like Jack Jack being adorable is playing quite a large role in their marketing strategy!

Stay tuned for more Incredibles 2 news – it’s sure to keep coming as the release date approaches! The US release date is June 15th.

‘Bravo, Edna’ – New Incredibles 2 Teaser

Incredibles 2, Pixar, The Incredibles 2, Trailer

Posted by Joanna • April 9, 2018

You may not have had the chance to watch the new teaser that Pixar released last week for the upcoming Incredibles 2 – this one heavily features the ‘iconic’, ‘explosive’ Edna Mode (no complaints here), and proves that our favourite superhero fashion designer is just as eccentric as ever. Watch the new teaser below:

Edna Mode was a firm favourite in the original The Incredibles, voiced by director Brad Bird. Aside from hearing famous fashion stars such as Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Andre Leon Talley singing Edna Mode’s praises, this teaser also provides us with some new, never-seen-before clips. These mainly take place in Edna’s stylish abode, and she appears to have created a brand for herself – the ‘Mode Collection’.

We’re also shown part of a scene between Helen and Bob Parr – Helen, or Elastigirl, is trying on a supersuit that is shocklingly not designed by Edna Mode. Understandably, the supersuit isn’t really up to par, and definitely not up to Helen Parr’s standards.

“Edna designed this?” “No! Some guy named Alexander Galbaki.”

We’re looking forward to seeing more Incredibles 2 content as the release date (June 15th) inches ever closer.
