Incredibles 2 Animation Progression

Making an animated film is remarkably different than shooting a live-action movie. Everything is created from scratch, and the process is a much longer, arduous one. Sure, some live-action movies can take awhile to develop and get off the ground, but the amount of production time for an animated movie takes years.

Incredibles 2 has been in the works for 14 years, and the production timetable got pushed up when the original 2019 release date was swapped with the 2018 release of the delayed Toy Story 4. That means the team had to work a little faster to get the film done on time, and we’ve got a look at how a single shot from the animated sequel evolves from a simple storyboard to a meticulously detailed final shot.

Frozone's Wife

While The Incredibles was full of a bunch of memorable characters, there was one character who was quite the scene stealer. This was all the more impressive since it was a character who isn’t even seen in the movie – she is only heard from off-screen. We’re talking about Frozone’s wife, who was not too pleased that her cool superhero husband was desperately looking for his super suit so he could ruin their date night by going out to help The Incredibles stop a giant robot from destroying the city.

With Incredibles 2 on the way, and bringing the return of Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) alongside the titular superhero family, will we finally get to put a face with the voice who dubbed herself the “greatest good” the superhero would ever have? Director Brad Bird gave us the answer when we visited Pixar Animation recently. Read More »

Incredibles 2 Villain - Screen Slaver

Even though Incredibles 2 is less than two months away, Disney and Pixar have largely kept the villain of the animated superhero sequel under wraps. It wasn’t until the most recent trailer popped up that we got our first glimpse at the villain right at the end. The character’s ominous debut arrived at the end of the trailer with the villain introducing himself across the airwaves as The Screen Slaver. But just who is this villain and what are their plans?

While on our visit to Pixar Animation for a sneak peek at Incredibles 2 (check out our extensive footage reaction here), not much was said about the villain of the film. However, concept art on display in the Incredibles 2 gallery provided some new details, and there just might be a hint as to who this villain, hiding in plain sight this entire time, could be.

Find out what we know and what we may have figured out about the new Incredibles 2 villain below, but beware of possible spoilers for the story. Read More »

However, they can be spotted in the background of the new poster that debuted last week.

Now, we have details on the so-called “wannabe supers” that you can learn about below. Read More »

Incredibles 2 Footage Reaction

The Incredibles hit theaters all the way back in 2004, and it was easily the most sophisticated and involved animated adventure that Pixar Animation had brought to the big screen yet. The film arrived at a time when the superhero film genre was still figuring itself out, with hits coming from the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises and complete disasters arriving in the form of Daredevil and Catwoman.

Since then, superhero movies have exploded, largely thanks to the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and fans have come to expect something special to help a movie stand out from the rest of the pack. So 14 years later, what exactly sets Incredibles 2 apart from all the rest of the superhero entertainment out there? The answer is simply the magic of Pixar and the beating heart of a family that everyone can easily feel connected to, even when they have superpowers.

A few weeks ago, /Film was invited to the campus of Pixar Animation in Emeryville, California for an exclusive sneak peek at Incredibles 2. We were shown the first 22 minutes of the animated sequel, as well as another 13 minutes of other moments from the rest of the movie. So how does the Pixar sequel stack up to the beloved original? Find out in our Incredibles 2 footage reaction below, but beware that we talk about the events that unfold in the first act of the movie, so there might be spoilery details you want to avoid.
