‘Incredibles 2’ Might Be the Best Pixar Sequel Ever

Early reactions are out and everyone is pretty giddy.

It’s been 14 years since the release of the animated superhero extravaganza The Incredibles, but for the titular super-family, no time has passed at all. And according to early reactions, the impending sequelThe Incredibles 2  — feels similarly timeless. Critics began posting their reactions on social media this week, and everyone is pretty giddy. Here is what some of the big names in media are saying about the movie right now. 

The editor of Collider, Steven Weintraub loved it, calling Incredibles 2 “a fantastic sequel.”

Scott Mendelson of Forbes begrudgingly admitted the movie was great, even though he hadn’t previously believed it should exist.

 

Germain Lussier of io9 and Gizmodo also loved the film, though he did suggest there’s a bit of plot recycling. “It shares some narrative DNA with the first film but works nonetheless.”

The biggest praise, however, came from critics who described it as a great Pixar sequel, which says a lot considering how much people freaking love Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3.  Kyle Buchanan of Vulture made that exact comparison calling it “the best sequel Pixar has made outside of the Toy Story franchise.”

While many critics noted that it’s been over a decade since the first film, most were decidedly in the “well worth the wait” camp, specifically IndieWire film editor Kate Erbland.

The winning tweet ⏤ or, at least, the funniest ⏤ had to come from Los Angeles Times reporter Libby Hill.

Hill’s point is hilarious for another great reason: A lot of people who saw The Incredibles in a movie theater in 2004 are suddenly parents now. The Incredibles 2 is out in wide release from Pixar on June 15.
