‘The Incredibles 2’ Olympics TV Spots Tease New Footage
If you’ve been soaking up all the winter sports during the Olympics these past few days, you may have spotted a tease for The Incredibles 2. Pixar dropped two new TV spots during the games, teasing a special sneak peek to come later this week.
The new spots are brief, but they give us our first footage since the Jack-Jack-centric teaser from November. The first reveals what’s likely the opening of the Brad Bird film, which will pick up with the same set piece that closed the original movie with the Underminer. The giant explosion in the street is probably when John Ratzenberger’s villain emerges, and you can spot Mr. Incredible punching the Underminer’s robotic hand too. Samuel L. Jackson’s Frozone skates across the street and Elastigirl lands atop a train. The second TV spot is even shorter, but we get a quick look at some more action.
The Incredibles 2 will focus more on Holly Hunter’s Elastigirl while Craig T. Nelson’s Bob puts on his Stay-at-Home Dad suit as Jack-Jack is discovering his new powers. Here’s the full synopsis:
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in Incredibles 2 – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
A new special preview is expected to drop during the Olympics this Wednesday so check back here to see it. The Incredibles 2, which will also feature new characters voiced by Bob Odenkirk and Catherine Keener, hits theaters June 15. Check out the new poster below:
