Incredibles 2 (2018) Poster

(2018)

Trivia

Overall, Jack-Jack has seventeen superpowers, the most for any superhero in the movie. They are the following: Multiplication: Jack-Jack can make multiple copies of himself. Demon transformation: Jack-Jack turns himself into a purple demon-looking thing. This power appears to be triggered when he gets angry, especially when he doesn't get a cookie. Jack-Jack also used this power in The Incredibles (2004). Fire: Jack-Jack bursts into flames, Human Torch-style. He can seemingly still function normally in this state, it's just that everything he touches instantly catches fire. Also seen in The Incredibles (2004). Laser eyes: green laser beams shoot from his eyes. The lasers can be steady beams, or he can shoot them pulse-style. Growth: Jack-Jack grows many feet taller and wider seemingly at will. He also appears to become a lot stronger in this state. Dimension hopping: Jack-Jack can traverse through different dimensions. When in the other dimensions (it's implied that, in the movie, there are more than one to which he travels), people in his own dimension can still hear him. Carbon-copy features (metamorphosis): A few minutes after meeting Edna Marie "E" Mode, Jack-Jack transforms his facial features to look like hers. He even replicates her hair. Super strength: Jack-Jack tussles with and kicks a raccoon clear across his backyard as a demonstration of his strength. He also tosses a few lawn chairs around one-handed as if they were small toys. Invulnerability: Despite wrestling for several minutes with a raccoon who has razor-sharp claws, Jack-Jack doesn't sustain so much as a scratch. Floating: Jack-Jack can seemingly make himself weightless and kind of floats around uncontrollably. It's not really flight, more just a zero gravity float. Telekinesis: On at least two occasions, Jack-Jack demonstrates limited telekinesis: once when fighting with the raccoon, and once on the boat when he takes Elastigirl's goggles off without touching them. Sneeze-induced flight: At least twice, the force of Jack-Jack's sneeze propels him into the air like a rocket. Luckily, he usually uses his ability to walk through walls before hitting the ceiling. Electricity emission: It only occurs once in the movie, when Bob Parr discovers that Jack-Jack has superpowers following his son's battle with the raccoon. Walking through walls (and glass): It's not clear if Jack-Jack becomes intangible to pass through walls, or if he changes the physical properties of the wall so he can walk through it. Either way, he makes it work. Turn to lead: Jack-Jack only uses this superpower in his battle with Syndrome near the end of The Incredibles (2004) (note that when he changed to a metallic form, he and Syndrome plummeted suddenly, indicating a sudden and extreme weight). He never at once uses it in this movie. It is, nevertheless, assumed that he still retains this superpower. Blobbing: During the fight with the raccoon, Jack-Jack turns himself into a shapeless, gelatinous blob that's tough for the animal to fight. Miniaturization: Jack-Jack can shrink to minuscule size, about the size of a flea (as seen in the short Auntie Edna).

Writer and Director Brad Bird had stated over the years that he would only do a sequel to The Incredibles (2004) if he could come up with a story that was just as good as, or better than, its predecessor. The idea of Bob (Mr. Incredible) becoming a stay-at-home dad, while Helen (Elastigirl) becomes the breadwinner was there from the beginning, but it took several years for Bird to come up with the perfect story around which to write this idea.
Instead of this movie being released on June 21, 2019, Pixar swapped release dates with Toy Story 4 (2019), as the film was being completed ahead of schedule, while the other was lagging in production, of which was initially going to be released on June 15, 2018.

As in The Incredibles (2004), Frozone's wife Honey does not appear on-screen. She is only heard yelling at her husband from off camera as he runs off to don his super suit and help the Parr Family, again just like last time. According to Writer and Director Brad Bird, Honey was initially going to appear on-screen, and she even got her own character design, but ultimately they decided it would be funnier if she remained off-screen. The character design for Honey would still be used for a background character.

When Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) is trying to help Dash with his homework, he can be seen struggling with "New Math", describing it as making no sense at all and exclaiming "This is Math! Why would they change Math?" New Math was a brief, dramatic change in the way mathematics was taught in American grade schools during the 1960s (the approximate time of the Incredibles universe) which was highly criticized and quickly fell out of favor. The relevance of this joke comes from the frustration modern parents (and students) occasionally experience with "Common Core" mathematics.

When Helen is in her hotel room and on the phone with Bob, there is an abstract painting hanging on the wall behind Helen. It features five swatches of red on a light background. Each swatch forms a shape with a likeness of the five Parr family members. The four representing Bob, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack are positioned on the left side of the painting, and the final swatch, representing Helen, alone on the right. This subtly emphasizes her separation from her family.

Several scenes involving the Screenslaver include rapidly flashing lights, which raised concerns for potential seizures. As a result, many theaters began showing warnings for viewers who were susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy. The U.K. version on general release removed the warnings, although preview screenings in June (including for Cineworld Unlimited subscribers) used the original version. It was only re-edited overseas after public outcry from American viewers, who saw it a month earlier on June 15, instead of July 13.

The first had been Chick Hicks, who was voiced by actor Michael Keaton in Cars (2006) and Pixar's Bob Peterson in Cars 3 (2017).

Galbaki, name-dropped as a rival designer by Edna Marie "E" Mode, was originally going to appear as a character, specifically a foil to Edna. Galbaki would essentially be an anti-Mode: His costumes would showcase his designs rather than being designed for the needs of the hero wearing them. In early concept art, his costume for Elastigirl would even have violated Edna's "No Capes" rule.

The appearance of The Outer Limits (1963) and Jonny Quest (1964) on television confirms the movie's time frame as the fall of 1964. Perhaps coincidentally, both shows aired on ABC, which is now owned by The Walt Disney Company. Disney, however, does not own those series, so both clips had to be licensed from their respective owners (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Warner Brothers).

Voyd's super power called for some technical intervention to make it easier to achieve in layout animation. Pixar wrote software to duplicate characters and connect multiple cameras, so that when one looked through one side of the void hole, one would see what a camera at another location sees. If a character stuck her arm through the hole on one side, they needed to place a duplicate of the character's arm on the other side.

The character Elastigirl (Helen Parr) is actually based on DC Comics Superhero of the same name. In DC, 'Elastigirl' or 'Elasti-Woman' aka Rita Farr (Notice the similarity in their last names) has the same Superhero alias and power of Helen and she is a member of the 'Doom Patrol' superhero team. As per report, DC had given the permission to use this character name until and unless the character is used in any merchandising. Further to mention that though 'The Incredibles' movies are regarded as among the best Non- comic book superhero movies, similarities in between it's characters and many comic book characters are noticeable.

In a scene about an hour into the movie, there is a battle between Elastigirl and Screenslaver, encased in a room of pure flashing, nearly strobe lights. This scene was subject to blame for multiple seizure and epilepsy warnings for those who are photosensitive. Since the many cases of seizures during the movie and many unsatisfied customers who had to walk out of the theatre, the HD copies later distributed online severely toned down the intensity of those lights.

While not as foreboding compared to the first film, the scene where Helen goes to work for the first time echoes Bob's second trip to Nomanisan Island, but with their roles switched. Helen is a little dismissive in response to Bob's prodding, too focused on work ahead. Bob tries to sound optimistic in an effort to convince himself that everything is still okay. The scene even ends on the same note: as Helen drives off, Bob places his hand on his chin and tilts his head a little wistfully, likely wondering if everything really is okay, as he watches her leave.

According to Brad Bird, the Incredibles films are not to be classified or categorized as children's films just because of its PG rating or use of animation; or seen as any different than Marvel or Lucasfilm features.

Just as animation legends Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas had a brief cameo in "The Incredibles (2004)" this film seems to feature an appearance by an animation legend, albeit as a supporting character and with a different name. The character of Winston Deavor bears a striking resemblance to another animation giant who also has the initials of "W.D." He appears to be a caricature of Walt Disney himself.

On the surface, Winston Deavor seems very similar to Bob Odenkirk's famous character Saul Goodman. Both are smooth-talking, PR-oriented white collar men who have a sleazy vibe. The difference is Saul is an amoral attorney furthering his criminal activities, while Winston turns out to be a genuinely nice guy who wants to help people.

It was planned for Jack-Jack to melt as part of his shape-shifting powers in The Incredibles (2004), but this idea wasn't used. It can be assumed that this was due to technical limitations at the time, or the fact that it would have seemed too disturbing for younger viewers at the time. This limitation appears to have been corrected for this movie, as seen during his fight against the raccoon.

  • The model number on the back of the Metrolev hover train.
  • On the door of the editing room at DEVTECH where Helen watches the Screenslaver footage.
  • On the far right corner of the International Superhero Accord contract.

During two scenes of Elastigirl's exploits, we see her mimicking the gimmicks used by Fantastic Four (2005). The first time when she opens the locks to the Screenslaver's apartment hideout by squeezing her hand under the door. The second was when the Screenslaver trapped Elastigirl in a near freezing chamber to dampen her rubbery powers and threaten to "break" her. Both are likely homages to The Incredibles' core characters being inspired by Marvel's First Family, The Fantastic Four.

In many of the scenes in which they appear, Evelyn is shown in the background, often slightly out of focus, foreshadowing her later reveal as The Screenslaver working behind the scenes. The Outer Limits (1963)'s Do Not Adjust Your Set line foreshadows the Screenslaver's M.O. When Winston and Evelyn's past is revealed there are indications that she harbors negative feelings towards superheroes. Evelyn tells Helen, "I'm the genius behind the genius." Evelyn is often seen with unkempt hair and Exhausted Eye Bags, suggesting that she's been busy with other things when she's not working with Helen and her brother. Screenslaver gives a monologue condemning people's addiction to letting entertainment do things for them rather than taking the effort to experience them themselves, relying on simulations. Evelyn, the real Screenslaver, states that people want ease above all else, even quality (which echoes Screenslaver's point on a broader level) right before she attacks and hypnotizes Elastigirl. Also, the Screenslaver who made the speech is himself a simulated villain, and the real Screenslaver mostly acts by manipulating people through television screens.

Evelyn was originally meant to have another brother named Nelson, who was originally going to be the main villain, but the character was cut because the creators would prefer a female villain. Early into production, Evelyn was originally going to be an electric based supervillain named Shelectric. This idea was scrapped and instead turned into Evelyn. This allowed Nelson to be turned into He-Lectrix.

Several of the other superheroes seen later in the film also display powers seen in the Marvel comics: Krushauer crushes metals, like Magneto from the X-Men; He-lectrix can summon electricity, like Electro from Spider-Man; Brick is an unstoppable force who resembles Juggernaut from X-Men; Screech the Owlman possesses a high-pitched screech similar to the sonic scream of X-Men's Banshee, and Voyd can create portals like X-Men's Blink.

Elastigirl reaching under a locked door to open it from the inside, and Evelyn subjecting her to super-cold temperatures to neutralize her stretching abilities is similar to Fantastic Four (2005).

During the Screenslaver's monologue, Elastigirl tracks the location of the Screenslaver, and pursues him throughout the city. This scene parallels the movie's theme, with regards to people being enslaved by screens, since the audience tends to get distracted with Elastigirl's pursuit of the Screenslaver (which is what's on the screen), thus having their attentions diverted from the real purpose of the scene, which is the delivery of the Screenslaver's monologue (wherein he states his beliefs and philosophies regarding passivity of people and their overreliance on technology and Supers).

When Winston noticed the goggles on the three main supers, he had thought that they were masks that were designed by his sister, as when he had asked Evelyn about it she played along with his question by saying that they were masks that had night-vision. Its possible that she told the second-rated supers a similar lie so she could get the goggles on them without any kind of resistance, thereby tricking the supers to place the goggles on themselves.

Voyd is the second character in the franchise to be a fan of one of the protagonists. The first was Buddy Pine/Syndrome who was a fan of Mr. Incredible in the first movie. However, unlike Syndrome who remained evil throughout the first movie, Voyd remained good (aside from being hypnotised by Evelyn) throughout the second movie.

Winston tells the heroes that the reason the world doesn't like superheroes is because of "perspective" (people see destruction, they see superheroes, they blame superheroes). Later, Evelyn points out that her brother has a "childish perspective", "Superheroes go away, mommy and daddy go away." Also, when Evelyn has Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and Frozone under her control, she makes them start monologuing a prepared speech about how humans are feeble.

The hypnotizing research and notes that Helen came across in the Screenslaver's "lair" is most likely Evelyn's. Placing her research and plans of attack there is mostly likely part of her plan, as it creates the illusion of her puppet being the "true" villain and lowers the risk of her being discovered as the puppeteer.

When an angry Elastigirl meets Mr. Incredible on Nomanisan Island, he pulls her into a kiss. A hypnotized Elastigirl pulls him into a kiss, but she does so to distract him long enough to put Screenslaver's hypnotizing glasses on him, placing him under Screenslaver's control as well.

Evelyn has a remote that she uses to turn the goggles off and on, without removing them. She can also use the goggles to see through the eyes of her puppets, from her control room.

Essentially, Evelyn is the authentic Screenslaver, being the mastermind behind the scheme. Evelyn even comments on this factor, when asked by Elastigirl if she is the Screenslaver, saying she is and isn't since she never dons the costume but is the one controlling the person who does and is the one behind the messages.
