It’s that time of the year where you get to go down the memory lane and live your childhood once again- all without the fear of judgement. If you too belong to the older Disney generation then we have incredible (pun intended) news for you.
The sequel to Pixar’s 2004 superhero movie Incredibles is releasing in India this Friday. After a long wait of 14 years, director Brad Bird is ready with Incredibles 2 and it’s already a massive hit in the USA.
2018 has so far been one of the most successful years for the superhero genre with hits like Avengers Infinity war, Black Panther, Deadpool 2; while Ant-Man and Wasp, Aquaman and The Death of Superman are yet to be released. So what makes Incredibles 2 so special? For starters, Pixar movies are arguably almost always awesome. There is no dearth of supremely talented writers, animators or directors at Pixar and their art has a way to connect with both adults and children alike.
And let’s not forget that Incredibles came out at a time when neither the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) nor the DC universe even existed on screen. Unlike MCU and DC, the Incredibles franchise has a different take and portrays the life of superheroes in a never seen before way. In this world, the superheroes are shown to juggle their moral duties while also dealing with bratty teenagers, wailing babies and marital complications. The characters are more relatable and surprisingly “normal”. There are no dead parents or dead spouses- just an ordinary family with extraordinary powers trying to save the world.
Anyone who is over the age of 20 would remember the excitement which surrounded the first one, and judging by the trailer, Incredibles 2 looks even more promising. It’s packed with our favourite characters performing impressively choreographed action scenes with a healthy dose of laughter.
If the Indian audience needed any more reasons to watch this masterpiece, then don’t fret because we have one more- the Elastic girl will be voiced by none other than Bollywood actress Kajol in the Hindi dubbed version.
It surely will be a treat to watch Mr Incredible and Elastic girl along with Frozone mark on another incredible (pun intended again) journey. A lot of hope and nostalgia is attached with Incredibles franchise and hopefully, it will not disappoint its faithful fans.
