“For all of you wondering where the new movie picks up, wonder no further because right here, right now you’re going to see something really special, the beginning of the movie,” said Samuel L Jackson in a video message before the clip began.
It starts out with Agent Rick Dicker, who is charged with protecting the secret super-identity of the family, interrogating a student who recognizes one of the Parrs as the family was in the midst of thwarting the city’s destruction by the Underminer. The superheroes are hesitant at first to spring into action as Helen points out “it is still illegal,” which inevitably doesn’t stop them.
As the family works to protect the pedestrians and the city (or what’s left of it) while juggling babysitting duties, in comes Frozone (Jackson) with the assist and together they stop the Underminer’s enormous drilling machine from completely taking down City Hall. The family is then cornered by law enforcement ,while Frozone manages to escape in an alley where he meets a mysterious man who offers him an opportunity to change the No Supers law.
The sequel written and directed by Brad Bird centers on Helen (Holly Hunter) as she is called to lead a campaign to bring the Supers back, while Bob (Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything.
Disney released a teaser in November, which the studio’s incoming distribution chief Cathleen Taff touted as the most watched animated teaser ever with “over 113 million views in the first 24 hours.”
