Incredibles 2: Meet the characters

the incredibles 2 characters

When 2004's The Incredibles first hit the big screen, audiences around the globe were wowed by Mr Incredible's superstrength and Elstigirl's flexibility. Earning an Oscar for being the best animated film that year, the makers of The Incredibles laughed their way to the bank with the film's phenomenal success. Nearly a decade later, Pixar is bringing our favourite super family back to the theatres on June 22.

Talking about the Incredibles family, writer/director Brad Bird says it wasn’t the characters’ powers—or the villains—that fueled the film’s success. “I realized that the crime-fighting aspect of the story didn’t interest me nearly as much as the whole family dynamic,” he says. “I think that people see themselves in these characters and that’s why they fell for them the way they did. The Incredibles and now Incredibles 2 are really stories about a family.”

Here's everything you need to know about you favourite super characters from The Incredibles:

In short, she’s still got it. Helen will be voiced by Holly Hunter.

Some super big things are planned for the youngest of the Parr family, Baby Jack-Jack. With a penchant for throwing food, Jack-Jack may seem like a typical toddler at first but he just might turn out to be the most powerful Parr in the household. Remember how he took the world down in the last film's climax?

Lucius Best, Bob’s best friend and fellow-former super, is so chill that he can make ice with the point of a finger. With his quick wit and can-do attitude, Frozone wouldn’t think twice about donning his supersuit again if it could help bring supers out of hiding. Samuel L Jackson returns as the voice of Lucius.

With an impeccable design sense and a keen understanding of cutting-edge technology, Edna "E" Mode has become one creative visionary. She longs for the return of supers as well as her cutting-edge supersuits. "E takes over every room she enters," says Bird, who lends his voice to the fan-favorite. "No matter how big and strong the people around her are—and she’s often surrounded by supers—her personality just dominates. I think we all summon our inner E during our most confident moments."
