We received a copy for review. All opinions are my own. I am SO EXCITED that one of my favorite animated movies is now available to own on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital! Packed with humor, woman empowerment, family unity and more there is something in this movie that everyone will find to love. The scene with Jack-Jack and the raccoon is probably the most popular and, let’s face it, absolutely amazing! I just watched it again last night and was once again taken aback by how good the WHOLE movie really is.
It is packed with humor (both for kids, married couples, women, men, and teens – pretty much everyone). The banter between Bob and Helen always has me laughing and Bob’s reaction to being at home with the kids, and having to “relearn” math, learning the in’s and out’s of taking care of the kids every day and so much more. I loved seeing the evolution of the characters over the course of the movie and really really want to see another one! Crossing fingers for an Incredibles 3!
I also wanted to remind you that I went to LA for the Incredibles 2 press junket, so I was able to interview many of the cast members, so be sure to check out all of their interviews and more that we were able to participate in while we were there. Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and more.

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
“Incredibles 2” Cast and Crew
Holly Hunter and Craig T. Nelson return as the voices of Helen and Bob Parr, who still struggle to juggle their duties as parents and Supers. Sarah Vowell once again provides the voice of the teen-queen of sarcasm Violet, while Huck Milner joins the cast as the voice of 10-year-old Dash, and Samuel L.
