Incredibles 2 is a movie for all ages. The second installment in the Pixar franchise starts immediately where the first one ends. Because of this, it’s easy to forget we all had to wait 14 years for the sequel.

Released to theaters June 15, Incredibles 2 joins the original voice actors together for another adventure.

 The movie is a cool one hour and 58 minutes long, and the pace was on track. The animated film received a 94 percent “Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Across the board, reviews have been quite positive for director and writer, Brad Bird’s latest creation. The Incredibles 2 is a comedy, an action movie and a family film all tied into one.

The audience finds the Parr family right where they left them, trying to defeat the Underminer, as any superhero family would do. Unfortunately, Mr. Incredible, voiced by Craig T. Nelson, and Elastigirl, voiced by Holly Hunter, are not successful in their mission.

With public opinion not in their favor, the family has to move and stay under the radar. Keep in mind, superheroes have been illegal for some time now, and they didn’t even catch the villain.

Long time supporter of superheroes, Winston Deavor, voiced by Bob Odenkirk, presents the Parr family with an opportunity to rehabilitate their image and hopefully, make superheroes legal again. However, for the plan to work, Elastigirl has to fight crime once more. Mr. Incredible’s pride may be hurt that he wasn’t asked to help, but he pulls it together in order to help with the kids. Jack-Jack, in particular, is given a spotlight in the movie because of his newly discovered powers.

Arguments, breakdowns and plot twists ensue. Acceptance, determination, patience and confidence are all important themes at work in Incredibles 2. Every family member is coming to terms with a flaw or discovering something new about themselves. And, by working together, what do you think happens?

Catch Incredibles 2 in theaters while you can. And, if you’re like me, buy a copy once it’s out on DVD so that you can memorize all of the new one-liners and Edna Mode jokes.
