Incredibles 2 made a heroic entrance at CinemaCon.
Disney on Tuesday showed the opening of the anticipated Pixar release during a segment on animation during the studio’s presentation at the confab in Las Vegas.
The opening sequence picked up right where the original 2004 film left off, with the superhero family preparing to fight the mole-like villain The Underminer, who is bound and determined to destroy City Hall. In the clip, a love interest for Violet (voiced by Sarah Vowell) recalls the scene and laments that seeing her as a superhero will make their upcoming date “weird.” What to do?
There also was a full action segment that has Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), Violet, Dash (Huck Milner) and Jack Jack battling the Underminer and getting some last-minute assistance from Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson). They unleash their powers to try to stop the destruction of City Hall — while working to keep residents safe from harm.
Also featured in the animation portion of the Disney presentation was Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Wreck-It Ralph sequel, Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet. The studio screened the much-talked-about sequence from D23 that sees Sarah Silverman’s Vanellope hanging out with all of the Disney princesses and introducing them to the wonders of sweatpants.
Incredibles 2 will hit theaters June 15; Wreck-It Ralph 2 bows Nov. 21.
