  • A new full-length trailer has dropped for “Incredibles 2” and it’s our best look yet at what the movie has in store for the superhero family.
  • Elastigirl is on a mission to save the world this time, leaving Mr. Incredible at home with the kids – including Jack-Jack, whose powers are quickly developing.
  • The trailer highlights more story and action than the first teasers, along with fan-favourite characters like Edna Mode and Frozone.

It’s been 14 years since Pixar’s “The Incredibles” was released. Now, the family of superheroes is back in a new official trailer along with director Brad Bird at the helm.

After a short teaser trailer and a sneak peek that aired during the Olympics, the new trailer is the best look yet at what the long-awaited sequel has in store for audiences.

“Incredibles 2” seems to follow a similar path as the first film, with a mysterious figure – Winston Deavor, voiced by “Better Call Saul’s” Bob Odenkirk – recruiting a member of the Parr family for some superheroic exploits.

This time, though, Helen Parr/Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) gets to have all the fun while husband Bob/Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) stays home with the kids. That includes watching Jack-Jack, whose powers are quickly developing.

The trailer begins with Violet teasing Dash at the dinner table about washing his hands before asking her parents if they are going to talk about “the elephant in the room” – Helen’s new job.

Deavor then makes his debut, announcing his plan to “make some wrong things right” and to “bring supers back into the sunlight” (Supers are what the superheroes in “The Incredibles” universe are called). To Bob’s surprise, Deavor thinks Elastigirl is his best shot at achieving this.

The trailer then goes on to highlight more fan-favourite characters from the first film, including superhero costume designer Edna Mode and Samuel L. Jackson’s Frozone, who is once again fighting with his off-screen wife (“Where you going, ASAP? You better be back, ASAP,” she yells).

Judging by the trailer, it looks like “Incredibles 2” will be worth the wait when it finally arrives in theatres on June 15.
