Decoding the First Look at THE INCREDIBLES 2!

Long before Disney purchased Marvel, Pixar released the best Fantastic Four movie that anyone has ever done. Director Brad Bird gave The Incredibles the best aspects of Marvel’s superhero family, and helped transform into a uniquely wonderful world of its own. It’s been a long, long wait for the sequel, but The Incredibles 2 is finally on the horizon and we may even get a sneak peak at the D23 Expo later this month. But first, today’s Nerdist News is taking a look at an intriguing piece of concept art that may offer some hints about the eagerly anticipated sequel.

Join host and Frozone’s former partner, Dan Casey, as he examines The Incredibles 2 print that made its debut on the D23 app. On the surface, so little has changed that it could easily be mistaken for concept art from the first film. But if this really is meant for the sequel, it could indicate that The Incredibles 2 will move away from the time jump tradition of previous Pixar sequels. If we had to hazard a guess, we would say that The Incredibles 2 takes place almost immediately after the first film!

Note the presence of the Underminer, the supervillain who made his debut in the closing moments of the first film. Almost all of our favorite characters from the first film are also represented, including Frozone and Edna Mode, plus the kids don’t appear to have aged at all. As much as we’d like to see what happens when the family gets older and the children grow up, it makes sense that Pixar would keep them frozen in time for now. The entire first movie was basically their origin story as a team. Now we get to see that team in action.

We are absolutely in love with the retro-futuristic vibe from this piece of art, which hopefully means that the sequel will maintain the same visual aesthetic. Although, we do want to know what’s going on with the raccoon on top of Violet’s force shield. Does the Parr family have a new pet? And is it joining them on an adventure? It may seem silly, but we’re still ridiculously excited to see where Bird takes us in the sequel.
