Incredibly, Incredibles 1 came out 14 years ago – specifically on October 27, 2004 at the London Film Festival.
Although the UK may have gotten first dibs on the first Incredibles movie, they are now stuck waiting for the sequel.
When is the Incredibles 2 sequel out in the UK?
Incredibles 2 will arrive in UK cinemas on Friday, July 13, 2018.
Incredibles 2 was released on June 5 in the USA so spoilers and reviews are already widely published.
The 2004 Incredibles film earned £261million domestically in its entire 23-week cinema runtime.
Incredibles enthusiasts have been waiting quite a while for the family-friendly hit to return to cinemas.
And reviews for the sequel in the USA are so far doting high praise.
Incredibles 2 has already smashed box office records and is now the highest grossing animated movie of all time.
The Pixar movie featuring the Parr family has, according to Box Office Mojo, already made £380,198,419.85 ($504,382,414) in US domestic takings.
This level of profit has made Incredibles 2 America’s 11th highest grossing movie of all time.
The list of highest grossing movies worldwide sees Incredibles 2 currently at 84th, with a combined taking of £582.36m ($772.8m).
Brad Bird, the auteur of the first Incredibles, also wrote and directed Incredibles 2.
Incredibles 2 features the return of Holly Hunter, Craig T Nelson, Sarah Vowell, and Samuel L Jackson.
Around the time of Ratatouille, Bird’s other Pixar hit, the director said he was open to an Incredibles 2 movie, but only if it could be better than the first.
Not too long after the first Incredibles movie, in 2007 Bird told Comingsoon.net “I have pieces that I think are good, but I don’t have them all together.”
Bird later told Hollywood Reporter in 2013: “I have been thinking about it. People think that I have not been, but I have—because I love those characters, and love that world.”
He added: “I am stroking my chin and scratching my head.
“I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another Incredibles film, and if I can get ’em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that.”
Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed Bird would write the Incredibles sequel and Bird started the script in the spring of 2015.
Incredibles 2 has been in the works for a while and American fans have already been treated to the Parr family’s return.
UK Incredibles fans will have to wait a bit longer – but after 14 years, what’s another day?
Incredibles 2 will be released in UK cinemas on Friday, July 13, 2018.
