Holly Hunter plays the role of superhero Elastigirl, as she continues to fight crime while Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), her husband, takes the role of stay-at-home dad in Incredibles 2.
While family was a big theme in the first Incredibles (2004) film, and continues on here, the typical roles see a bit of a switcheroo in the sequel.
The first film had Mr. Incredible leading the family team of animated superheroes, whereas the sequel features Elastigirl flying the flag for all the ‘supers’ in the Incredibles world.
The film’s humour targets the struggles Mr. Incredible faces looking after his family alone, while Elastigirl is out protecting the innocent.
The new trailer also introduces the film’s villain, The Underminer (John Ratzenberger), and gives us a look at what to expect from the story.
Incredibles 2 appears to have all the charm that comes with every Disney/Pixar film, and considering it’s been 14 years coming, should be another resounding success for the powerhouse animation studio.
Alongside the voice talents of Hunter, Nelson and Ratzenberger are Sarah Vowell, Samuel L. Jackson, Huck Milner, Jonathan Banks, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Sophia Bush and Isabella Rossellini.
The highly anticipated sequel hits cinemas on 14 June 2018 in Australia.
