Typically when it comes to movie sequels there are only a few years between the first and second film. But not when it comes to Pixar films, they tend to take a bit longer. Their most recent sequel is Incredibles 2 which released about 14 years after the original.
Here’s what Incredibles 2 is about:
Helen is called on to help bring Supers back, while Bob navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home when a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot that only the Incredibles can overcome together.
Visually, the film looks great, you can see all the details in the characters faces and some of the background characters and sets. That 14-year gap between The Incredibles and Incredibles 2 really helped make stuff in the film like the hair, water effects, look even better thanks to new technology.
Just like the original film, composer Michael Giacchino returns to score Incredibles 2. Giacchino’s really adds to the action and story of the film.
The Incredibles 2 Blu-ray comes back with lots of bonus features. Instead of the usual director’s commentary, Incredibles 2 comes with commentary by some of the animators on the film including: lan Barillaro (supervising animator), Tony Fucile (supervising animator, story artist, and character designer), Dave Mullins (supervising animator) and Bret Parker (animation second unit and crowds supervisor).
There is also feature about some of the backstory and major design ideas behind some of the characters in the film as well as another feature about director Brad Bird taking viewers through his passion for animation.
The Blu-ray also includes 10 deleted scenes, outtakes, the theatrical short Bao including the making of and an all-new “Auntie Edna” mini-movie.
The digital version of Incredibles 2 comes with two exclusive features, one is about Samuel L. Jackson’s childhood and love of comics helped share his passion for film and storytelling. The other two scene breakdowns of the Racoon Fight and the Mrs. Incredible scene.
Overall, Incredibles 2 is an action-packed film that’s great for the whole family. If you’ve enjoyed the first film, then you’ll definitely enjoy Incredibles 2.
Incredibles 2 is now available on Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray, DVD and Digital.
