Disney fans have been eagerly awaiting a sequel to the Incredibles for some time now, but the good news is that in actual movie time the series will pick up right where it left off.
It’s been 14 years since the original Incredibles thrilled audiences, but Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter revealed to IGN that for the family no time has passed.
“It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on,” quipping that only “a minute” will have passed. “It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece. You know that at the end of the first movie when he comes up and you see the family dressed as superheroes, well that’s where start this movie.”
Seeing the family finally come together as a unit was a big part of the first Incredibles, and it will remain a central piece of the sequel.
“One of the unique things about the Incredibles is it’s really a story of a family set in the world of superheroes. This one carries on that theme,” he said. “It’s awesome, the idea we came up with — simple as that. … We love to really look at our own lives and look at what’s going on, and find themes that we know will resonate with the audience.”
Much of the cast of the original is expected to return for the sequel, including Samuel L. Jackson’s friend of the family Frozone, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. Expect more details this weekend at D23.
The Incredibles 2 comes out on June 15, 2018.
