We've been waiting a long, long time for The Incredibles 2. After all, the first film ended with a rather fun hint that we would see further adventures of the Parr family -- and yet it's been more than a decade since the characters have been on the big screen. Thankfully, however, our wait is almost over, as the sequel is now officially in the works over at Pixar Animation Studios.

News of The Incredibles 2 first broke in March of 2014, as Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger announced that the sequel was in development, but what exactly can we expect to see in the new movie? We're here to separate the facts from the fiction as the film moves forward, so read on to find out what we know so far!

What Is The Incredibles 2 Release Date?

Incredibles 2 was announced before a release date was ever set, so we had no idea when we were going to see it. It was then set for a summer 2019 release. With Toy Story 4 set to come out a year earlier. However, in the fall of 2016, the two films swapped dates, apparently because production on Toy Story 4 was taking longer than expected. This means Incredibles 2 is set to open on June 15, 2018. This puts it a week after the release of Oceans 8 and the week before Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. It's Disney's only June release, with Solo: A Star Wars: Story coming out at the end of May and Ant-Man and the Wasp set for July.
