We are getting our first bit of news coming out of the D23 Expo regarding “The Incredibles 2”. IGN exclusively spoke with John Lasseter at D23 and he revealed that “The Incredibles 2” will begin immediately after the events of the first “Incredibles”.
Concept art for “The Incredibles 2” was released earlier this week and it does indeed show very familiar images from the first movie. We see the Underminer’s drill, which appeared at the very end of “The Incredibles”. We also see Frozone, Edna Mode and Jack Jack is still a baby. Now what’s the deal with that racoon?
“It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on,” Lasseter said during an interview at D23 Expo, quipping that only “a minute” will have passed. He added, “It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece. You know that at the end of the first movie when he comes up and you see the family dressed as superheroes, well that’s where start this movie.”
Brad Bird will again be directing and writing this Incredibles tale, which Lasseter described as “such a special story.”
“One of the unique things about the Incredibles is it’s really a story of a family set in the world of superheroes. This one carries on that theme,” he said. “It’s awesome, the idea we came up with — simple as that. … We love to really look at our own lives and look at what’s going on, and find themes that we know will resonate with the audience.”
