While not the invulnerable hit-making factory it once was, Pixar is still among the most consistent studios in the industry for putting out quality product. Among their best films is 2004's The Incredibles, which has a long overdue sequel set immediately after the events of the first film due out on June 15.
The Incredibles is a brilliant mash-up of Watchmen and Fantastic Four, and though the animation isn't as jaw dropping as it was 14 years ago, the solid storytelling on display more than makes up for it. I'm a touch worried about this sequel though, despite Brad Bird's involvement, and that has more to do with Pixar than anything else.
With the exception of the Toy Story franchise, where each film in the series got better, every single Pixar sequel has been a pale imitator of the first film. Cars 2 and 3, Finding Dory, Monsters University... they're all fine films, but none can compare to the original. Fingers crossed this one goes the way of Toy Story. I think we could all use a sequel that's better than the original right now.
