I have been waiting 14 years to find out what became of Disney’s favorite animated super hero family, The Parrs aka The Incredibles. In this action packed sequel “Incredibles 2” they pick up right where the first movie left off. It is an action packed storyline with so many adventures that each super hero character must face. Not to mention lots of laughs as well. Edna Mode is such a fabulous character and I couldn’t wait to see her again in all her fashion amazingness.
“Incredibles 2” is like a 007 movie animated when Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is asked to lead a campaign to bring Supers back which means Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) will be holding down the fort at home with ‘normal” life with kids Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack. Wait until you see what super powers Jack-Jack has!
Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
One thing I really enjoy about collecting Blu-ray movies is the bonus features. It’s so cool to find out how they made the movie with behind the scenes looks and commentary. “Incredibles 2” on Blu-ray has so many to choose from!
