Today, marks the first day of Disney’s D23 Convention in California. Disney will be showcasing many of their top properties including Marvel and Lucasfilm. However, in their Pixar department; the studio has been hard at work developing the sequel to the beloved 2004 animated classic The Incredibles.
Now many assumed that the sequel (just like in real life) would take a time jump showcasing the Parr family much older. However, while speaking with IGN Pixar Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter revealed that the film takes place where the original ended:
“It starts right as the first one finishes, 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 start this movie.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. 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.”
This of course confirms that The Underminer will be the main antagonist for the Incredible family going forward.
