‘The Incredibles 2': What Are Baby Jack-Jack’s 17 Super Powers?

‘The Incredibles 2': What Are Baby Jack-Jack’s 17 Super Powers?
(Note: This post contains some spoilers for “The Incredibles 2.”)

In “The Incredibles 2,” the heroic family at the center of the movie boasts a slew of impressive superpowers that apparently stem from their genetic makeup. And the most powerful of all is also the youngest (and tiniest): Infant son Jack-Jack, whose powers were a secret from his family (but not from the audience) in the original “The Incredibles.”

Bob, a.k.a. “Mr. Incredible” (Craig T. Nelson), and Helen, a.k.a “Elastigirl” (Holly Hunter) their super-speed-powered son Dash (Huck Milner) and invisibility-force field generating daughter Violet (Sarah Vowell) spent the entire run of the first “Incredibles” movie thinking baby Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile) was just a normal human. Audiences were in on the joke, though, seeing some of Jack-Jack’s special abilities onscreen toward the end of that movie.

But in “The Incredibles 2,” the jig is up as Bob finally

‘The Incredibles 2': In What Year Does the Series Take Place?

‘The Incredibles 2': In What Year Does the Series Take Place?
“The Incredibles 2” and its predecessor “The Incredibles” take place in a world pretty much like ours, with the key difference being for a while at least, superheroes were as common as they are in comic books. And the similarities to our world have long made fans wonder when, exactly, all this is taking place. The bad news is that both movies are pretty vague about that question. The good news is that they still have a lot of hints and clues that seem to suggest a specific, highly retro time frame. Let’s take a closer look.

The first thing to remember is the context: 15 years before the start of the original film, superheroic activities were made illegal after people hurt during super-events stared suing the heroes for damages. The heroes were then forced into retirement as part of a sort of witness protection program. Furthermore, “The Incredibles 2” picks up

An updated ranking of every Pixar film

The pinnacle of modern animation can be found within the 20 releases put out by Pixar. Ever since they started up with A Bug’s Life, their films have been hotly anticipated, both by critics and audiences alike. Now, with Incredibles 2 hitting theaters, they’ve continued an all but unparalleled run of excellence. Their lows haven’t been especially low, in particular when compared to the competition, while their highs have been a number of instant classics. Any list of the best animation of the last 50 years has got to include multiple efforts of theirs. That, if nothing else, succinctly sums up why this company does it better than anyone else right now. They are on a different level, plain and simple. What sets Pixar apart from everyone else is the way that they appeal to both adults and children in equal measure. They make you laugh just as often as they make you cry.

Second Opinion – Incredibles 2 (2018)

Incredibles 2, 2018.

Directed by Brad Bird.

Featuring the voice talents of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Catherine Keener, Eli Fucile, Bob Odenkirk, Samuel L. Jackson, Sophia Bush, Isabella Rossellini, and Jonathan Banks.

Synopsis:

Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) is left to care for Jack-Jack while Helen (Elastigirl) is out saving the world.

As if Disney’s multi-billion dollar acquisition of Marvel Entertainment didn’t grant the “House of Mouse” enough superhero might, Pixar’s Incredibles 2 (re)animates its own super-duper family formula. Maestro of pixelated magic Brad Bird ushers the Parr family into an Avengers: Civil War scenario while retaining household dynamics as to not lose focus of what’s most important – sorta. Kind of? 2018’s highly anticipated spandex sequel is a wonderous bar-setting visual achievement (Pixar continues to be the computer studio to beat), but thematic messaging is dodgy at best. You’ll be thrilled,

Incredibles 2 Review Roundup: Is the Superhero Sequel Worth the 14-Year Wait?
The sequel to the hit 2004 animated film, The Incredibles, is finally here—but was it worth the 14-year wait?! According to critics, yes, Incredibles 2 was well worth the wait. Written and directed by Brad Bird, the family-friendly film picks up not long after the ending of the first film, but this time around it's more future-focused and female-driven than ever before. In the sequel, Elastigirl/Helen Parr (Holly Hunter) is the main superhero, while Mr. Incredible/Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) stays at home to take care of their kids, Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Huckleberry Milner) and baby Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile). The Parrs are still illegal but when the siblings behind a...

'Incredibles 2' Review: Pixar Sequel Is Both Super and Subversive

'Incredibles 2' Review: Pixar Sequel Is Both Super and Subversive
It really is incredible. Yes, the sequel to Brad Bird's 2004 classic is not the groundbreaker that stormed the multiplex 14 years ago – you only get to be shiny new once. Pixar's animated miracle didn't look or sound like anything else, being about a family of superheroes forced into retirement by a legal system that didn't care for the collateral damage caused by their do-gooding antics. How many family films dealt with midlife crisis, marital dysfunction, child neglect, impotence fears, fashion faux pas and existential angst? But this follow-up is

“Incredibles 2” more than lives up to its namesake

Hollywood Heroes™: For years, the one product that fans have been begging Pixar to put into production is a sequel to The Incredibles. As other properties have been given one or even two sequels, this film of theirs has remained untouched. This week, however, that all changes. Incredibles 2 is hitting screens, and having seen it last week, I can gladly report that this is closer to a Toy Story outing than a Cars outing. Pixar has never fully swung and missed, but their franchise outings have been hit or miss. This is a huge hit though, and in some ways even better than the original. The flick is a followup to the original outing, The Incredibles. Our favorite superhero family from the first one is back, again consisting of patriarch Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible (voice of Craig T. Nelson), matriarch Helen Parr / Elastigirl (voice of Holly Hunter), daughter

Pixar Planning 3D Re-Releases for 'The Incredibles' and 'Ratatouille'

Pixar Planning 3D Re-Releases for 'The Incredibles' and 'Ratatouille'
Disney Pixar's director of 3D production, John Hollander, revealed at the 3D Creative Summit in London that the studio is working on 3D conversions of The Incredibles and Ratatouille.

Here's what John Hollander had to say at the summit about The Incredibles, though it isn't known when they may release this 3D version.

"Right now we're working on The Incredibles, which is a lot of fun in 3D. I'm not sure what the release strategy for it will be. It's been an interesting challenge to work on technology because - while the film was released 10 years ago - the technology is even older as it took four years to make."

He also spoke about the Ratatouille 3D conversion, which has already been completed.

"We have a version of Ratatouille, which works really well in 3D and we're trying to figure out exactly what the release strategy for that will be.

Brad Bird Talks The Incredibles 2 and Star Wars: Episode VII
Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol director Brad Bird recently opened up about the prospect of directing a sequel to his 2004 animated hit The Incredibles. While he addressed the possibility of a follow-up back in December 2011, the filmmaker seems more keen on making the sequel now.

"I have been thinking about it. People think that I have not been, but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another [Incredibles] film, and if I can get 'em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that. I like the idea of moving a little more quickly in films. I'm looking for ways to accelerate the pace a little bit and figure out a way to keep creative control over these movies to a level where I'm comfortable

Brad Bird Talks The Incredibles 2
Director Brad Bird made a name for himself with the animated features The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille. His first live-action movie, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, opens on December 21, but there are still fans clamoring for a sequel to The Incredibles. Brad Bird revealed that he would like to make a follow-up to the 2004 Pixar tale, but he needs to find the right story first. Here's what he had to say below.

"I think the reason it hasn't [happened] yet is because the studio would like me to do it, if there were another Incredibles. And I've told them that I'm not really friendly to have someone else take away my child. I would like to think that I have several good ideas that could be incorporated into the next Incredibles, but I don't have a whole movie yet, and the last thing I want to do is do it
