Who else was beyond excited when they heard the news that Incredibles 2 was coming to theaters?? There’s nothing like a 14 year wait to whet the appetite for more! I was thrilled to have the opportunity to receive Incredibles 2 on Blu-ray/DVD – there was never any question that I would be adding this movie to our family’s Disney/Pixar collection. We loved it in theaters and enjoyed it just as much at home. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Amazon affiliate links are used within this post.
My husband still believes that The Incredibles (2004) is one of the best animated movies of all time, if not the TOP. He loves it. We all do. Not only did The Incredibles win Oscars®, but it earned a 93% positive critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes and surpassed $1 billion at the global box office (it is one of the highest-grossing animated films of all time).
Fourteen years is a long time to wait for a sequel, but Incredibles 2 hit the mark and was worth the wait. I couldn’t believe how easily the story picked up right where we left off. It was exciting, funny and action-packed. And it felt SO good to see the Parr family, Edna, and Frozone again.
Incredibles 2 is available on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and on Movies Anywhere as of October 23, and will be available for purchase on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD,™ Blu-ray™ DVD and On-Demand on November 6.
About Incredibles 2
In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Incredibles 2 BONUS FEATURES to enjoy at home
I love watching a good movie (especially while sorting and folding laundry in my family room) but one of my favorite things to do is dive into the bonus features on DVDs. Who would have guessed that bonus features could be just as enjoyable as the movie itself?? Granted, I’ve always been the type to want to discover the extra details about a story. When I was a kid (long before the internet), I’d pull out our encyclopedias to research historical topics discussed in the books I read. I was known for reading every single book and short story that an author I liked had written. And if I found out that a movie I had just watched was based on a book, you’d better believe I’d check it out of the library (because I knew the book would have more details that I craved).
Nowadays, I’m hooked on bonus features….learning about how movies were made, meeting the cast, seeing deleted scenes and pondering why they weren’t included in the final movie. And don’t get me started on outtakes. They’re my favorite!
The bonus features on the Incredibles 2 Blu-ray did not disappoint. There’s so much to enjoy, whether you’re a life-long fan of the Parr family or just enjoy learning more about the makings of a family-friendly movie like The Incredibles. Here’s what you will find when you bring Incredibles 2 home:
