See All of Baby Jack-Jack’s Powers (Plural) in the First Incredibles 2 Teaser
The first trailer for The Incredibles 2 has finally dropped, and while it doesn’t tell us much about the plot, it does reveal all the superpowers of baby Jack-Jack. We first saw Jack-Jack displaying his abilities when he burst into flame in the first film, but it looks like he’s got a whole host of powers, including laser-beam eyes, phasing through solid matter (?), and shooting off lightning bolts.
Back in July, Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter told IGN that Incredibles 2 will pick up right where the first film left off, even though 14 years will have passed since the first one came out. (Prepare my crypt now.) “It starts right as the first one finishes,” Lasseter said, “so it just carries on … 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 we start this movie.”
Lasseter also said it will still be fundamentally a family movie. “One of the unique things about The Incredibles is it’s really a story of a family set in the world of superheroes,” he said. “This one carries on that theme … 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.”
I’m pretty pumped for another Incredibles film; the first was a joy of a movie, and it’ll be fun to see these characters again. I don’t have a super-specific wishlist for the sequel, though my one hope is that they cool it with the Randian undertones of the first film. (The talentless, inferior masses are holding us Übermenschen down!)
Directed by Brad Bird, Incredibles 2 arrives in theaters on June 15, 2018.
