The latest featurette for the upcoming ‘The Incredibles 2’ offers fans a closer look at Elastigirl’s new costume. The sneak peek shows the heroine trying on the new super-suit, complaining about the color scheme and how it is “dark and angsty” – not quite the look that she wants to present to the world. The featurette reveals that Edna did not design the new Elastigirl costume and is not too happy about not being consulted.
The long-awaited sequel to the 2004 film about a family with superpowers – trying to blend in a world where costumed crime fighters have been outlawed – is one of the most highly anticipated family films of 2018. Picking up right where the ending of ‘The Incredibles’ left off, the story will reportedly focus on Helen Parr a.k.a. Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), who gets back into superheroism as a full-time job. This leaves her husband Bob, a.k.a. Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), adjusting to life as a stay at home dad after losing his job as an insurance agent. The movie will also explore the discovery of baby Jack-Jack’s development of his own superpowers.
Several famous real-life fashion designers, fashion experts, stylists, and models make cameo appearances in the trailer, including Zac Posen, Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Rachel Zoe, Andre Leon Talley, Kate Young, and Kendall Jenner. All of them praise Edna’s skill as a designer, singling out such revolutionary concepts as rocket stiletto-heels and “the nuclear onesie.”
Kendall Jenner can be seen saying:
“She’s a visionary. A giant. Well, I mean, not literally. She comes up to my knees!”
While it remains to be seen what role Edna Mode will play in ‘The Incredibles 2,’ it has been confirmed that director Brad Bird will once again be providing the voice of the diminutive fashion designer. The new trailer confirms, however, that she will be checking up on her favorite family. It also seems that she won’t be holding a grudge about Elastigirl’s new suit being designed by “some guy named Alexander Gehlbachi.”
