Incredibles 2 Cast Revealed Along With New Characters



The highly anticipated sequel to Pixar's 2004 hit The Incredibles has been a closely guarded secret from the beginning, but juicy cast details were just leaked.

While most of the main cast will be returning (save for a replacement or two), the Incredibles 2 will also be benefitting from a slew of new characters to spice up their superhero world. Disney and Pixar announced the new cast picks on Twitter in line with the Google Arts and Culture app Face Match trend that swept through the celebrity world last week.

Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, and Sarah Vowell will all be back to reprise their roles as the ultra-incredible Parr family. Huck Milner, however, is stepping in as the new voice behind the speedy Dash.

Samuel L Jackson is going to play fellow superhero Frozone again while The Incredibles director and writer Brad Bird is set to pitch in as the eccentric fashion maven Edna Mode. Another recast character is Super Relocation Program agent Rick Dicker who was originally played by Bud Luckey. Jonathan Banks (Better Call Saul) will be voicing the character for Incredibles 2.

Audiences will love the return of their favorite Pixar characters, but new voices are coming to town to inject fresh life into the sequel. The newcomers start with Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad) who will voice Winston Deavor, a business bigwig who might take his obsession with the Supers a bit too far. Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich) will be lending her voice to the franchise as Winston's genius sibling Evelyn Deaver.

A potential new fan favorite is Voyd, an exciting young Super who is a big fan of Elastigirl. Voiced by Sophia Bush (Chicago PD), the new Super is quite powerful with the ability to make objects appear and disappear through voids created out of thin air.

Finally, a mysterious character called the Ambassador will also be introduced in Incredibles 2. She will be played by Italian actress Isabella Rossellini (Blue Velvet).

In the original film, the Parr family ended up going into hiding and living as normal individuals. In a bid to bring Supers out into the world again, Elastigirl is tapped to become the face of the superhero campaign. Meanwhile, Jack-Jack's emerging powers spells mischief for the whole family.

"Helen's appetite for adventure comes to the fore," Hunter describes Elastigirl in an interview with EW. "Whereas before, she was driven to become Mrs. Incredible out of necessity, where she went into it to save her husband, I think this time she really meets her own ambition head-on. The ambition of being an adventure is something that we get to explore."

The Incredibles 2 is slated to be out in theaters on June 15.
