The Incredibles arrived on the scene in 2004 when superheroes were taking off at the box office, but hadn’t ventured into the behemoth of success that would come with the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe just four years later. Now that 14 years have passed since the original, the superhero game is well-tread and seasoned territory. But leave it to the geniuses at Pixar Animation to craft a superhero sequel that is positively superb simply because it isn’t your average superhero movie.
What made The Incredibles stand out in the first place was the fact that it was about family first. It just so happens the Parr family were special because every one of them had super powers (except Jack-Jack at the time). Unfortunately, Bob (aka Mr. Incredible) and Helen (aka Elastigirl) decided to start a family after superheroes were declared illegal, forcing their kids Dash and Violet to hide their super powers. Unlike the rest of the world around them, this family can’t do the things that make them special.
Incredibles 2 partially deals with this same issue as the family faces the prospect of their heroic actions still being deemed not only illegal, but also unwanted by the general public, thanks to the perception presented by politicians ensuring that people only see the destruction they’ve caused and not the good they’ve done. However, all that is an excuse to put pressure on The Incredibles as a family, to change up the dynamic so that each of the characters can grow in their own way. And it’s accompanied by some amazingly well-crafted and thrilling action adventure. Read More »
Incredibles 2 is in theaters now, and that means fans have gotten a glimpse at every single one of the new powers displayed by Parr family’s youngest superhero, Jack-Jack.
Our first hint of Jack-Jack having superpowers came at the end of The Incredibles when a whole array of special abilities came flying out of the baby when he was in the midst of being kidnapped by Syndrome. And we found out about even more of them in the animated short Jack-Jack Attack that was released with the home video version of The Incredibles. But we find out about some fascinating new powers Jack-Jack has in Incredibles 2, and now there are so many that we thought it might help to have a handy list to keep track of them all. But beware of spoilers for Incredibles 2 as we list off all of the Jack-Jack superpowers we know about. Read More »

Incredibles 2 hit theaters this weekend, and in case you didn’t hear, it was quite the hit at the box office. The film broke the box office record for the biggest opening weekend in the history of animation with an estimated $180.2 million (the more precise figures will come this morning). But it didn’t entirely go off without a hitch, because some viewers has an unpleasant experience when they went to see the anticipated Pixar sequel.
In Incredibles 2, the villain known as The Screenslaver uses hypnotic, flashing videos to put people into a trance and do their villainous bidding. This means that several times throughout Incredibles 2 there are repeated light flashes and strobes that have the potential in incite problems for viewers dealing with epilepsy, migraines, vision impairments, seizure conditions, vertigo (specifically flicker vertigo), autism, ADHD, and PTSD. One viewer took notice of this issue and garnered up enough support online so that Disney asked all theaters to deliver an Incredibles 2 warning about this potential issue that might arise for some viewers.
