Disney and Pixar’s John Lasseter is leaving both companies later this year following reports that he allegedly sexually harassed a number of his female colleagues during his career as the chief creative officer. Now, Disney and Pixar have announced who will replace him.
Pixar’s long-anticipated superhero sequel just rocketed to a record-setting premiere weekend. A new comics series will be showing the secret identity side of the Parrs’ lives and it’s almost a given that Pixar and their partners will be telling more Incredibles stories in the future. Let’s chat about what we’d like to…
Incredibles 2 is a wondrously-crafted rehashing of many of the same narrative beats and jokes that made the first movie so great. But there’s one very important part of the new film that highlights a painful truth that’s been a part of the Incredibles franchise all along: Helen needs to break up with Bob.
There was no doubt that Incredibles 2 was going to be a box office hit, but it really can’t be understated just how wildly successful an opening weekend the movie just had.
When Incredibles 2 showed up at theaters this week, it appeared without one potentially very important detail: an epilepsy warning.
There’s a moment in Incredibles 2 where Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and Frozone get a blast from the past. To prove he’s a fan, Winston Deavor (Bob Odenkirk) sings a few bars of each hero’s theme song. It’s a fun moment, but it passes, and things move on. However, if you stay for the credits of the film, you can hear…
The first Incredibles movie invoked the time-honored tradition of using superpowers as a metaphor for what makes people unique and special. In Incredibles 2, the tropes of being a superhero complicate the characters’ lives even more, especially the grown-ups who have to take care of children.
Incredibles 2 takes everything you love about the Oscar-winning original and flips it on its head. The result is a highly-entertaining, slightly familiar tale with bigger action, interesting subtext, and all the smarts, heart, and laughs you could ask for. It’s Pixar doing what Pixar does best.
Disney just announced that its former Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter will be leaving the company at the end of 2018, in the wake of last year’s accusations that he’d made unwanted advances toward female co-workers.
The Incredibles 2 sees the return of iconic “supers” like Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl, along with some new ones. But let’s not forget that Disney Pixar’s first venture into the superhero genre resulted in one of Pixar’s highest body counts. Twenty supers died to make this movie. But even though they were barely…
For over a decade, fans have been asking Brad Bird if he was ever going to make a sequel to The Incredibles. And he finally has. But the writer/director has very strong thoughts on making sequels to his other movies, including his other Oscar-winning Pixar film, Ratatouille, and the iconic Iron Giant.
Since superheroes usually come from comics, they tend to translate rather well into visual art. That goes double when the superheroes are animated, which makes Incredibles 2 just about the perfect subject for an art show.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of all the coolest new collectibles we’ve seen this week. We’ve got even more Marvel movie merchandise (only one of which has anything to do with Infinity War!), an X-Files icon, and a very silly Rick and Morty umbrella. Check it out!
Even with the release of a brand new trailer, much is still unknown about Pixar’s upcoming Incredibles 2. The preview finally introduced the new villain, though only briefly, and it still didn’t show much outside of the actions of the main Parr family. But some newly released info reveals there will be some other…
A fresh promo for Pixar’s superhero sequel reveals a big shift in the Parr family dynamics—and the lengths to which they’ll go to make people trust metahumans again.
Even though we know every last frame came out of a giant rack of computers, Coco is no less spectacular to watch. It’s arguably one of Pixar’s most beautiful animated films, and this brief behind-the-scenes look at how the movie’s colorful Land of the Dead was built only adds another level of awe to the experience.
The internet is made for many wonderful things, but also, it’s made for yelling at each other loudly about beloved animated movies. So why not add some more fuel to the fire with your own Disney vs. Pixar March Madness bracket?
Long before Pixar pays thousands of people millions of dollars to animate their incredible films, the people responsible for the story make the movie again and again.
As cool as it is to see the Parr family kicking ass and taking names as the Incredibles, it’s just as fun (if not more so) to see them all fighting to blend in with normal society and hide the fantastic powers that make them superheroes. Newly announced comic books from Dark Horse will focus on exactly that.
