Pixar’s The Incredibles 2 Takes Place ‘A Minute’ After First Film
We’ve waited almost 14 years for a sequel to one of Pixar’s best movies of all time, The Incredibles. After two years in the making, we finally know when The Incredibles 2 will take place. As it turns out, not much time has passed at all for the Parrs despite the 10+ year gap.
“It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on,” John Lasseter said during an interview at D23 Expo, saying that only “a minute” will have passed since The Underminer began his over-the-top super-villain introduction. “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.”
Brad Bird returns as the movie’s writer and director, which Lasseter has described as “such a special story.”
“One of the unique things about The Incredibles is it’s really a story of a family set in the world of superheroes. This one carries on that theme,” he said. “It’s awesome, the idea we came up with — simple as that. … 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.”
Below is a video of Nerdist’s Dan Casey analyzing every single detail of the then newly released concept art for The Incredibles 2. Keep in mind that this video was made a week ago, and so far they’ve been right about how much time has likely passed since the first movie. If they were correct about the latter assumption, how much are they right about everything else?
