It’s been a long time coming, but in a matter of days, our favourite family of superheroes is finally ready to step into the spotlight once again for Incredibles 2.
The original has been affectionately hailed as “Pixar’s best movie” (we agree!) and expectations are understandably very high for the sequel many fans have been waiting to see for nearly 14 years.
Does it live up to the hype? Let’s find out in the first no-spoiler round-up of early reactions:
Wow!! #Incredibles2 is a blast. It does a great job building on the characters and the world, and it's super funny and action packed throughout. I had my doubts, but was thoroughly impressed. Will go down as one of the best titles of the summer. pic.twitter.com/jxR3U4SNoo— Eric Eisenberg (@eeisenberg) June 6, 2018
#Incredibles2 is such a friggin delight! Family dynamic is brilliant yet again but WOW is Jack Jack a scene stealer. And that score! More A+ work from Michael Giacchino that I’m gonna need to own.— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) June 6, 2018
#Incredibles2 was worth waiting for: great action, strong character development, and a lot of fun – and every *moment* involving Jack-Jack is hilarious. Lots of fun.— David Daniel (@CNNLADavid) June 6, 2018
#incredibles2 is a serviceable sequel, a fun adventure but not on the same level of the original. Jack Jack & Edna steal the show, (please tell me they are making a short film with Edna babysitting Jack Jack). Fantastic production design, another great score by @m_giacchino.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) June 6, 2018
1. Toy Story - 93
2. Wall-E - 92
3. Toy Story 3 - 91
4. Inside Out - 91
5. Ratatouille - 91
6. Finding Nemo - 90
7. Up - 90
8. Incredibles 2 - 90
9. The Incredibles - 89
10. Toy Story 2 - 89
It looks like the studio behind such classics as Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Wall-E has delivered yet again... but was there any doubt?
When Incredibles 2 was announced, it was scheduled for a 2019 release. However, it eventually traded places with Toy Story 4, which meant that the creative team lost an entire year to work on it. Naturally, this would have been a huge portent.
But based on the buzz the movie has been generating, it seems like fans will have nothing to worry about. Like its predecessor, Incredibles 2 is definitely one of the must-see movies of the year.
