Sphamandla (@Fresh_Lezinto) – 

Incredibles 2 is directed and written by Brad Bird and takes place immediately after the events of the first film, with the family facing the challenges of coexisting with a world which never really witnessed their heroics in the first film.

With the introduction of new faces, Incredibles 2 comprises of most of the original cast, such as:

  • Craig T. Nelson as Bob Parr aka Mr. Incredible
  • Holly Hunter as Helen Parr aka Elastigirl (I omit the “Mrs. Incredible” intentionally)
  • Samuel L. Jackson as Frozone
  • Sarah Powell as Violet; and
  • Huck Milner being the new voice of Dash, for obvious reasons

The man who has proved himself over the years with works on the fourth Mission Impossible film and Ratatouille called on Michael Giacchino, the composer of the theme song and overall score of the first film to return for the second spell and we were shown once again, why he was chosen.

A noticeable improvement in the animation can be seen in the film and as much as one can note that such should be expected due to how far we have come, I think a lot more effort was given in ensuring that not a single detail is missed.

The writing of Brad Bird is always a treat. He has always been the man who makes films which speak to the audience and have us question a lot of what we deem as qualities or rather comforts which are actually catalysts in our destructive nature. You see it in films such as The Iron Giant and the unfortunate Tomorrowland. A lot of that was witnessed in this sequel and the fact that the audience has experienced a lot of the past 14 years was not left out.

Without giving too much away (though I feel as though I already did), I want to say this film was fantastic and one of the best-animated sequels since Toy Story

Hope you all love it as much as I did.

Has Incredibles 2 lived up to your expectations?
