Back in 2005 just around the time when Finding Nemo was released , I was 19, I had a long conversation with a friend regarding animated movies and how as young adults we shouldn’t be watching cartoons anymore; they are intended for kids after-all.
In order to convince me other wise, my friend gave me a copy of The Incredibles (2004) and asked me to re-discuss the topic after watching it.
Later that year, I had already watched most of the animated movies ever made, and I became highly addicted to the genre specially Walt Disney and Pixar Studios productions with a special place for ‘The Incredibles’ in my heart. Thus I was very excited since the announcement of the sequel and thrilled when they released it even earlier than announced.
And as usual, Disney Pixar never disappoints me, The movie is just Brilliant, very entertaining on every aspect. Having Mr. Incredible a stay home dad, dealing with dash’s studies and Violet’s teenage problems and Jack Jack’s emerging uncontrolled powers, while Elastigirl is on mission to save the super heroes of the world gives the movie a social depth not expected from a superhero animated movie.
Jack Jack is the real deal, they already made a short-movie for him, but definitely i will be waiting for a feature for his humor, cuteness and purity. I loved every time he appeared on screen and how he was used during the runtime to create unforgettable moments.
Visually the movie is flawless, the animation is way advanced than the first movie of course. Loved the Elastigirl saving the train sequence and Jack Jack fight with the squirrel scene.
However, the sequel didn’t surpass the original movie. And maybe Pixar should start re-thinking the sequels. Because till now, with the exception of Toy Story 3, no sequel/prequel outranked the original story, though they are really well constructed and very entertaining to watch but part 1 always win.
The Incredibles 2 (2018) is the 20th Feature Film produced by Disney Pixar animations.
See you in Toy story 4, June 2019
