Early Incredibles 2 Reactions Tout a Pixar Sequel for the Ages
The Incredibles writer/director Brad Bird made Incredibles 2 writer/director Brad Bird’s job a tough one. How was Bird going to live up to what Bird (and his topnotch Pixar team) had accomplished way back in 2004. Well, the early reactions to Incredibles 2 are in, and they’re mostly glowing. Despite a 14 year gap between the two films, Incredibles 2 picks up right where the original left off. We’re once again following the exceptional Parr family, this time with matriarch Helen (Holly Hunter) called away on a superhero mission, leaving Jack (Craig T. Nelson) at home to take care of the kids. Superhero missions look a whole lot easier.
Pixar has had some of the best sequels in the business, with Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 at the top of the class, but it’s very hard to duplicate that original winning formula, and even harder to improve upon it. Yet Incredibles 2 is generating a lot of really positive buzz, with comparison’s to Toy Story‘s two powerhouse followups.
Incredibles 2 boasts a stellar cast, including Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Jonathan Banks, Sophia Bush, and Isabella Rossellini. The film opens June 15th.
Here’s a brief roundup of some of the early reactions:
Man #Incredibles2 was fantastic! It was fast paced, full of laughs, action, emotion and a kick ass story. I really liked the first one, I LOVED this one.

Wow!! #Incredibles2 is a blast. It does a great job building on the characters and the world, and it’s super funny and action packed throughout. I had my doubts, but was thoroughly impressed. Will go down as one of the best titles of the summer. pic.twitter.com/jxR3U4SNoo

I watched #Incredibles2 yesterday and I would like to personally thank the men and women of Pixar for making one of the best documentaries about parenthood I have ever seen.

I spent 14 years arguing that the world didn’t need an #Incredibles2 . After tonight, I would welcome an INCREDIBLES 3 with open arms.
