Disney/Pixar just released a new ‘Incredibles 2’ clip featuring Elastigirl’s rad set of wheels!
The clip shows Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) sizing up her sweet new ride, the Elasticycle. While Mrs. Incredible seems excited about the new bike, Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) is not, since he’ll be home with the kids. Sorry for your luck Mr. Mom!
Her new ride will come in handy, as in the film, Elastigirl has a new superhero job using her powers, while her family has to learn to deal with their own powers while adjusting to life with dad at home. Director Brad Bird used this storyline to assign powers to specific family members. Bird explained:
“What interests me is the idea of having a family, having there be a reason to hide the powers. Once I had that insight into what I wanted to do, I picked the powers based on who they were in the family. And so, men are always expected to be strong, so I had Bob have super strength. Women, mothers are always pulled in a million different directions, so I had her be elastic. Teenagers are insecure and defensive, so I had Violet have force fields and invisibility. Ten-year-olds are energy balls that can’t be stopped. And babies are unknown, maybe they have no powers, maybe they have all powers, we don’t know.”
He continued, saying:
“So, that’s what Jack-Jack was, he was seemingly the first normal one in the family and then at the end of Incredibles you find out that he’s the wild card, and that he’s sort of the Swiss army knife of powers. And that to me reminds me of the way babies can grasp languages really easily and adopt them easily.”
‘Incredibles 2’ opens in theaters on June 15th. Check out the super new clip below!
