It has been 14 years since fans last seen everyone’s favorite animated superhero family, The Incredibles, but now fans are just a week away from the release of the highly anticipated sequel, Incredibles 2. Some folks who are lucky enough to have attended an advanced screening of the film have posted their initial reactions to the film on Twitter, you can check out the posts below:
#incredibles2 is a serviceable sequel, a fun adventure but not on the same level of the original. Jack Jack & Edna steal the show, (please tell me they are making a short film with Edna babysitting Jack Jack). Fantastic production design, another great score by @m_giacchino.

Incredibles 2 is excellent. Super funny, super smart, & the action is bigger and better than before. It shares some narrative DNA with the first film but it works nonetheless. Another Pixar winner. pic.twitter.com/RnB1DIIPsv

So happy to report @BradBirdA113 delivered a fantastic sequel to 'The Incredibles'. Absolutely loved #Incredibles2. And @m_giacchino score is, as always, awesome. Can't wait to see it again. pic.twitter.com/bPrU6HHicM

#Incredibles2 is such a friggin delight! Family dynamic is brilliant yet again but WOW is Jack Jack a scene stealer. And that score! More A+ work from Michael Giacchino that I’m gonna need to own.

Time for some good news! Pixar’s #Incredibles2 is fantastic! Sweet, hilarious, and terrific pacing w/ a breezy story packed w/ action & heart. Adored it and the short #Bao before it. My favorite summer movie so far this season pic.twitter.com/WrCSN4J948

I spent 14 years arguing that the world didn't need an #Incredibles2 . After tonight, I would welcome an INCREDIBLES 3 with open arms.

These reactions should provide some comfort for fans who may have been worried about a sequel damaging the original film’s legacy. It’s also nice to hear, though not at all surprising that Michael Giacchino once again delivered an excellent score. The film focuses on Helen Paar, perhaps better known as Elastigirl, and her efforts to save the world, while her husband, Mr. Incredible, stays home to care for Jack-Jack.
Brad Bird who wrote and directed the original film is back to perform both duties for the sequel. Returning for the new film is most of the original cast including Craig T. Nelson as Mr. Incredible, Helen Hunt as Elastigirl, Sarah Vowell as Violet Parr and Samuel L. Jackson as Frozone.
Being a huge fan of the original film, Incredibles 2 had my money from the first trailer, but these reactions have done much to reassure me.
