The long awaited sequel to one of Pixar’s greatest hits landed in London yesterday amid a heatwave which necessitated the observance of the old adage: No capes! But the red carpet Brad Bird’s Incredible 2 brought with it two of the stars of the show: Samuel L. Jackson and Holly Hunter.

Colin Hart and Scott Davis were our superheroes on the press line yesterday and they spoke to the actors about returning to the roles thirteen years on, and Jackson gave us a little on his return to the M. Night Shyamalan-i-verse for the Unbreakable sequel Glass.

Joining Samuel Jackson, and Holly Hunter in the voice cast are Pixar’s lucky charm John Ratzenberger, Craig T. Nelson and Sarah Vowell.

Incredible 2 is released in the UK on the 13th of July.

Incredibles 2 Synopsis

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 superpowers 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.
