The Incredibles 2 Full Voice Cast And More Details Revealed
Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks are among the new voice actors for the animated sequel.
The Incredibles 2, Pixar's sequel that fans have been waiting 14 years to see, finally comes to theatres this June. Now we know more about the cast and story. Disney today announced what is presumably the full voice cast, along with more details on each of them.
Disney made the announcement in a silly and clever way: with images themed around the recent art-history meme. You know the one. Starting with the returning cast, most of the actors from the Parr family--Craig T. Nelson (Mr. Incredible), Holly Hunter (Elastigirl), and Sarah Vowell (Violet)--reprise their roles. However, Dash is now voiced by Huck Milner. Samuel L. Jackson's character, Frozone, is back as well, along with fashion designer Edna Mode, who is again voiced by writer-director Brad Bird.
Newly announced cast members include Breaking Bad actors Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks. Odenkirk plays a character named Winston Deavor, who leads a "world-class telecommunications company" with his sister, Evelyn (Catherine Keener). As for Banks, he Rick Dicker, who leads the Super Relocation Program; this is an organisation that helps keep the Parr family's super hero identities a secret. The bad news is that this organisation is shut down in the events of The Incredibles 2, so the Parr family must take care of themselves.
The two other new characters are Ambassador (Isabella Rossellini) and Voyd (Sophia Bush). You can see full character descriptions below, as written by Disney and posted on the company's blog today.
At Disney's D23 convention this summer, Bird revealed that the movie would focus more on Helen's superhero adventures, while Bob is a stay-at-home dad, trying to deal with the increasingly powerful Jack-Jack.
The Incredibles 2 hits theatres on June 15, 2018. It was originally scheduled to come to theatres in June 2019, but it swapped dates with Toy Story 4, and now that movie is due then.
The Incredibles 2 Voice Cast And Character Details:
Since Supers were outlawed, Bob has been focusing on raising his family with Helen Parr. When Helen is called to change the public perception of Supers for the better in Incredibles 2, Bob manages the Parr household on his own and faces new challenges.
In Incredibles 2, Helen is tapped to lead a campaign to bring the Supers back into the spotlight. We can’t wait to see her in action, especially since there is a new villain emerging that she will have to face!
Dash is a 10-year-old boy who seeks adventure and has an endless supply of energy. He is proud of his skills, and in Incredibles 2 we’ll see that he doesn’t understand why he has to keep his powers a secret.
We know and love Violet as an introverted and intelligent teenager with some seriously amazing sarcasm skills. In Incredibles 2, she will begin to master her superpowers of invisibility and force fields. She is a Super at heart.
One of our favorite characters of all time, Edna is on the cutting-edge of technology and fashion. In Incredibles 2, she longs for the return of Supers so that she can get back to making Supersuits (with no capes).
He’s Bob’s best friend and his super power is making ice with the point of a finger. He wouldn’t think twice about breaking out his Supersuit if it could bring Supers out of hiding.
Winston leads a world-class telecommunications company alongside his genius sister, Evelyn. He is a huge supporter of Supers and wants them to return to the spotlight.
She is the brainchild behind Winston’s company, knows her way around tech, and has never met a problem she couldn’t solve.
He heads the official Super Relocation Program, helping the Parr family keep their identities secret. In Incredibles 2, Rick’s division is shuttered, and the Parrs are all on their own.
She is an advocate for the Supers and committed to the support and legislation of Superheroes.
She is a “wannabe” Super and a mega-fan of Elastigirl. Her superpower is the ability to divert and manipulate objects around her by creating voids that allow the objects to appear and disappear. Super cool!
