The Incredibles 2: watch the first trailer for Pixar's superpowered sequel

Thirteen years on from the release of acclaimed animated comedy The Incredibles, Pixar have given us another glimpse of the superpowered Parr family in the first teaser trailer for a forthcoming sequel.

The Incredibles 2 reunites a voice cast that includes Craig T Nelson, Holly Hunter and Samuel L Jackson with original writer director Brad Bird in an adventure that will see Hunter’s character Helen, AKA Elastigirl, take centre stage, leaving Bob, AKA Mr Incredible (Nelson), to contend with the challenges of domestic life. The film will also see the Parr’s youngest member, baby Jack-Jack, begin to develop his own nascent powers.

Released in 2004, the first Incredibles film proved to be a critical and commercial success, grossing over $600 million at the global box office and receiving the Academy Award for best animated feature. In his five-star review of the film The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw described The Incredibles as “gasp-inducing”, writing that “as ever with Pixar, influences are subsumed into something new, something supercharged with insolent originality and modernity.”

The Incredibles 2 is released in US cinemas on 14 June 2018, and UK cinemas on 13 July.
