That's a whole lot less superheroey and more parenting than I would've imagined but this trailer works so incredibly well for setting up the family dynamics we can likely expect.
Last week, the studios teased that a special Incredibles 2 sneak peek would be airing during NBC's coverage, leading many eager fans to tune in waiting for trailer to the highly-anticipated sequel. The trailer is like a giddy, superpowered take on Mr. Mom, as Robert Parr struggles with newfangled math strategies (damn you Common Core) and reading Jack-Jack bedtime stories.
Just as the first film focused on a superhero forced into retirement, Incredibles 2 will see Bob Parr adapt to his new role as stay-at-home parent while his wife, Helen, dons the Elastigirl mantle once more to push superheroes back into the spotlight. Additionally returning is Sarah Vowell as the voice of Violent, but Huck Milner has ventured up to voice Dash since the performing artist who voiced him in the first film has matured out of the part. Baby Jack-Jack's powers were also highlighted, as the youngest Incredible teleported from room to room - much to the surprise of Frozone and Mr.More news: Sony Pictures apologizes for insensitive food allergy scene in Peter Rabbit
New cast members include Bob Odenkirk as Winston Deavor, the leader of a world-class telecommunications company who has an infatuation with supers. It's proven to be a tough challenge as Jack-Jack's superpowers are about to be discovered. Brad Bird will be voicing Edna "E" Mode, and Samuel L. Jackson is returning to voice Lucius Best (a.k.a. Frozone). "When a new villain hatches a brilliant and risky plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again" - which is easier said than done, even when they're all Incredible.
