The 14-year-long wait is over! Disney and Pixar’s The Incredibles 2 is making its Philippine big screen debut today, June 14th.
The film is the sequel to The Incredibles, which was released in 2004. Both movies were written and directed by legendary animator Brad Bird.
The plot follows the extraordinary life of the Parr family as they work the superheroes’ way back into the spotlight. At the same time, new obstacles and foes are thrown their way.

The Incredibles II is highly anticipated for its sensational superhero family story. But aside from that, the film, in its own, is breaking stereotypes.
As shown in its official trailer, it is Helen Parr (Mrs. Incredible/Elastigirl) who does the superhero work, while Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) stays at home to watch their children. This is in contrast to the first film wherein their roles were the other way around—a typical family setting.
This sheds light on a super-heroine’s underestimated capacity. Likewise, it brings attention to a man’s undervalued capability to be a good stay-at-home husband and father. Both are gender-related issues that are still present in today’s society.
Moreover, the trailer has revealed that the family has found out about youngest child Jack-Jack’s superpowers. While on the other hand, Violet and Dash discover more about their own superpowers. The trailer even gives a sneak preview of Violet’s new tricks with her force field powers.
