The Incredibles 2, Worth Waiting 14 years?
A resounding yes to that! First of all, it really doesn’t feel like a week went by as you are enjoying the film. That said, it does bring in very current situations like the stay at home dad, the dreaded new math and a villain that has very valid contemporary methods. The movie picks up where we last left off and seamlessly brings us into the story. Secondly, it is loaded with all the Disney-Pixar awesomeness we love like fabulous action pieces or the fabulous combination of retro-futuristic highlights that make the film timeless when paired to the topics it highlights (yes, girl power, for example).
It is a joy to see Edna again, dahling. Frozone kills it and the family always comes out as a unit. You will laugh, go awww a few times and totally fall in love with Jack-Jack.
The Incredibles 2 opens in theaters everywhere on June 15th and it is a summer must-watch!
