The last time we checked in with “Incredibles 2” was when Disney released the announcement trailer, now the studio is ready to introduce the cast. The highly anticipated sequel is set to launch in theaters later this summer, but you can find out who is voicing the characters this time around in PIXAR’s next big installment. For the most part the cast is pretty much the same, with a few extra characters added in for the expanded story-line. It’s been about 4 years since we have seen the Incredibles on the big-screen, and fans should be pretty excited to jump back into the story following the popular family.
As for the cast, Holly Hunter will once again be voicing the role of Helen Parr (a.k.a. Elastigirl), and Craig T. Nelson will also be returning to voice her husband Bob Parr (a.k.a. Mr. Incredible). The role of Dash Parr will be voiced by Huck Milner this time around, but Sarah Powell is returning to voice Violet Parr.
Outside of the Incredible family, Brad Bird will voice Edna “E” Mode and Samuel L. Jackson is returning to voice Lucius Best (a.k.a. Frozone). Bob Odenkirk will be joining the cast in the sequel to voice Winston Deavor, with Catherine Keener voicing the role of Evelyn Deavor. Sophia Bush will be voicing the character Voyd in the new film, and Jonathan Banks will voice the role of Rick Dicker. Disney also confirmed that Isabella Rossallini will be voicing the role of Ambassador.
The original film released back in 2014, and was a runaway hit for PIXAR at the time. “The Incredibles” opened at number-one with a $70M debut weekend, and the film earned $261M domestically before grossing $633M worldwide. The first installment was written and directed by Brad Bird, and he is returning to do the same for the follow-up film. If you missed the trailer that was released by Disney earlier this year, you can watch that below.
If you need to set a reminder, “Incredibles 2” will hit theaters on June 15, 2018. Also opening that month is the Warner Bros. Pictures’ heist-thriller “Oceans 8,” and Universal’s actioner “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”.
