The first footage from the long-awaited sequel to The Incredibles was screened to thousands of fans at a Disney fan expo, and people can’t wait.
Fans at D23 were treated to a sneak peek yesterday, ahead of any trailer release for the film which is expected in cinemas in June next year.
According to MTV, Incredibles 2 will focus on Elastigirl, who is ‘now in the spotlight on her own superhero adventures’, while Mr. Incredible stays at home with baby Jack-Jack.
Director, Brad Bird, told fans the work-in-progress scene from Incredibles 2, was inspired by a ‘very simple idea’ – Bob Parr falling asleep while watching TV with Jack-Jack.
He said at this point in the film, which you will know if you’ve seen the first one, will pick up right where it left off, with stay-at-home dad Bob, who has ‘no idea’ about his son’s powers.
I will actually roll thru to cinema next year at the big age of 18 to watch Incredibles 2, no shame?

The scene, which was shown at the expo, begins with Jack-Jack on his sleeping father’s lap, he wakes up and spots a raccoon outside the window who bears a strong resemblance to a robber he sees on television .
So he follows his superhero instincts and goes in pursuit of the ‘bad guy’.
Jack-Jack then goes on to use absolutely ‘every superhero power in the book’ — laser vision, elasticity, fire, multiplicity, and the ability to walk through objects — to try and take down this raccoon.
The only problem is that the young Jack-Jack has no ability to control what he’s doing.
Eventually, Mr. Incredible wakes up and runs outside to grab Jack-Jack, who then becomes five Jack-Jacks, all bouncing around like ‘an army of tiny babies’.
Mr Incredible isn’t annoyed however, he’s proud.
But as he looks around and assesses the damage, he begins to realise Jack-Jack is much more powerful than he could have imagined.
