The Incredibles (2004)
But beyond that reams of lavish, CG-laden blockbusters, there’s another movie sequel that’s beginning to stake its claim as one of 2018’s biggest releases. Its name? The Incredibles 2, Brad Bird’s long-in-development animation that picks up exactly where the original left off – quite literally, as it’ll see Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl go up against The Underminer.
Flanked by their superpowered youngsters – namely Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Huck Milner) and the mighty Jack-Jack – it seems Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter’s costumed crusaders are still struggling to strike a balance between parenting and fighting crime.
"Incredibles 2 picks up, literally, where the first film left off, with Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl battling The Underminer, while Violet and Dash are stuck with babysitting Jack-Jack. That's all we're saying for now. but rest assured, there are a lot more superheroics in store for our 'family dynamic.'"
Even though The Incredibles 2 picks up right where the first movie ended, the dynamic has shifted completely.

Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the trailer racked up over 113 million views by the end of the weekend, making it the most-watched animated trailer of all time, and the seventh-highest viewed trailer ever. Given those kinds of numbers, it seems highly likely that Disney has another huge hit on its hands this coming summer.

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Rashida Jones walked out on the animated sequel after John Lasseter, the renown head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation, made an “unwanted advance.” This news comes just as Lasseter takes a six-month leave of absence because of unspecified “missteps.”
Disney’s official statement on the matter failed to mention specifics, but the allegations against John Lasseter are beginning to mount. At the time of writing, Jones has not responded to her alleged incident with the Pixar co-founder, though it should be noted that she’s still listed as Toy Story 4‘s screenwriter. Her writing partner, Will McCormack, also left the project early on in a show of solidarity.
As the director of both Toy Story and its beloved sequel, these accusations are shocking and deeply troubling, and subsequent reports have alleged
This report doesn't offer any specific details about what this "unwanted advance" may have been, but if it happened shortly after they came aboard, it likely happened more than three years ago. Toy Story 4 was first announced
Bad News: “Coco” will likely gross around $60 million-$65 million, which would rank as one of least-impressive Thanksgiving box office returns in years. To be a blockbuster, “Coco” would need a very strong multiple and an international performance better than most Pixar films.
At $65 million for five days, it would be the lowest (in adjusted numbers) top grosser for the holiday weekend since the barely remembered “Four Christmases” in 2008. It also would fall short of the top 25 for the date; top animated titles on that list include Disney’s non-Pixar “Frozen,” (over $100 million), “Moana” ($83 million), and the original “Toy Story” and “A Bug’s Life,” both of which opened to over $80 million.

It’s not terribly surprising, either, since Disney announced its intention to release the preview ahead of time – a move that created a vast swell of excitement across social media. Fans of the original film in particular not only looked forward to seeing the first footage from the sequel, but also responded to the promotional snippet pretty positively. While it contained very little information about the movie as a whole, it provided reassurance that the very specific tone that made The Incredibles such an enjoyable film would be fully recaptured, 13 years on. As a result, the teaser has been viewed over 113 million times,
