Incredibles 2 has made waves this year, picking up right where they left off following the 2004’s beloved Oscar-winning film, the Parr family are ready to charge into crime fighting … again. Starting Nov 6, fans can reunite with this incredible family of supers instantly on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand.
The Blu-ray is packed with extras and family members of all ages will be hypnotized by hours of delightful entertainment. Featuring never-before-seen bonus material highlighting the beloved characters in the film and the filmmakers who bring them to life.
Overall bonus includes an all-new mini-movie “Auntie Edna,” which gives a glimpse of fashion visionary Edna Mode’s all-night endeavor to design a suit to best harness baby Jack-Jack’s expanding super powers. Also included are an inside look at the impressive production team at Pixar Animation Studios; documentaries highlighting the film’s relatable characters and stand-out scenes; 10 never-before-revealed scenes; filmmaker commentary; the touching theatrical short “Bao” and a corresponding featurette about how the dumplings sprung to life; and much, much more
The Incredible 2 was definitely a movie worth waiting for and the enthusiasm of the voice actors and animators is apparent in every frame. As another superhero movie amidst the invasion of Marvel over the last decade it says something when a film of that genre can stand out as much as this one. It takes full advantage of the possibilities animation allow while also delivering on an interesting story and returning all the characters we know and love.
Especially when comparing the action scenes, it blows other superhero movies out of the water. Most memorably, the scene with the runaway Monorail train outdoes any of the action scenes from several recent superhero movies, like say, ‘Black Panther.’ The camera is always focused on the important aspects of the shot and is never too close to see anything. Plus the editing always allows the action to breathe, never cutting too fast so that it becomes unintelligible.
Pixar manages to make lightning strike twice with this sharp, funny, and aware sequel. All our favorite characters are back and with Brad Bird returning as writer and director, his stamp of quality is all over this picture. Some thematic elements and plot beats are reused, and the secret identity of the enigmatic villain is a tad predictable, but Incredibles 2 gets you laughing, excited, scared, and makes you think. A rare treat in that the sequel is practically as good as its predecessor, and worth the wait of fourteen years.
