Over the weekend we got our first, all too brief, look at The Incredibles 2. However, if there was any question just how in demand this sequel is, that was put to rest by the fact that the trailer has broken an impressive record. The trailer for The Incredibles 2 is already the most viewed trailer for an animated movie ever. With 113 million views it's also number seven on the list of all-time trailers. Yeah, that certainly counts as incredible.
While Pixar has made numerous sequels to their animated film library, there is probably no movie that fans have wanted to see a sequel to more than The Incredibles. It was a stellar superhero movie that came out years before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was even a thing. The movie set itself up for a sequel, with the family of heroes confronting a new villain, but it was years before it was ever confirmed that a sequel was happening.
While fans were clearly interested in seeing what Incredibles 2 had to offer, based on the numbers from Entertainment Weekly, the initial trailer didn't actually give us very much. The only piece of footage that looks to actually come from the movie itself sees Mr. Increidble holding his baby Jack-Jack after discovering that the infant does, in fact, have superpowers, a fact which results in dad getting an unwanted haircut courtesy of his kid's laser vision. Still, even the trailer specific footage of young Jack-Jack creating the film's official logo was fun to watch, the Incredibles theme is a great piece of music, and just hearing it surely got fans excited. If you missed the trailer debut, check it out below.
If seeing the trailer on a computer screen isn't large enough for you, we're guessing it's not a coincidence the trailer hit the same week that a new Pixar feature arrives in theaters. Expect to see this trailer before Coco when it hits theaters tomorrow. That's not the only thing you'll get before the movie, as Olaf's Frozen Adventure, a 20-minute long featurette will screen prior to the new film. There's going to be plenty to love if you're a Disney-Pixar fan this Thanksgiving.
Incredibles 2 is set for a summer 2018 release. It jumped ahead of another long-awaited Pixar sequel, Toy Story 4, which was originally set to hit next year, but has now been pushed back to 2019. Expect to see that trailer in about a year, probably just before Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is released.
