Audiences have waited 14 years for The Incredibles (Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack) to be back in action, and Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 has finally arrived in power-packed, crime-stopping style. The first family of fun is back and ready to run, stretch, sneak, and smash their way to another happy ending for the good people of Metroville and the world.
Packed with action and laughs and available in up to 4K + UHD quality on Vudu, Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 is an incredibly good reason to gather the kids for a family movie night that everyone will enjoy.
The high-flying stunts, dastardly villains, and classic characters like Frozone and Edna Mode aren’t the only reasons to share Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 with younger family members.
Behind the super suits and Elasticycles are some great messages about family, strength, and the world today that are worth discussing with any young superhero-in-training.
One of the most powerful themes in Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 is the importance of pitching in to do your fair share and support the people you care about. When Elastigirl is called to resume her crime-fighting duties, it’s up to Mr. Incredible to take over household duties and take care of the kids while she’s serving justice to evil-doers.
It doesn’t matter that he’s used to being the one who goes out and works; when duty calls he steps up to look after his family and support his wife, an important example for any kid.
Elastigirl’s new responsibilities also offer a teaching moment. Elastigirl was already a top superhero when she met Mr. Incredible, but when heroes became outlawed she devoted herself to taking care of the family. Now that she’s back in the super suit, we get to see her display the abilities and crime-solving expertise that made her such a great hero in the first place.
Seeing Elastigirl, a confident and talented woman, saving the day and winning over the community is a great image for kids.
The film’s antagonist is the villainous Screenslaver, who’s use of hypnotic mind-control is also a subtle message for audiences. The Screenslaver controls the population by reaching out through the screens on their TVs, phones, and other electronics.
The zombified citizens serve as a reminder that too much screen time can have negative effects on the user, especially young children.
Even the supporting characters of Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 have some wisdom to impart. Voyd, an aspiring superhero, has strong powers but lacks confidence in her ability to be a hero. With encouragement from her mentor Elastigirl she is able to save people with her powers and assist the Incredibles in defeating evil. Her success shows kids what’s possible when you believe in yourself, as well as the important of encouraging others to do the same.
With life lessons and excitement at every turn, Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 is the perfect film for a super family movie night.
