Toy Story 4 Out, Incredibles 2 In
When The Incredibles director and writer Brad Bird stated that a sequel to the fan-favorite award-winning 3D animation movie was coming, fans everywhere rejoiced. Also, when it was announced that the sequel switched places with the upcoming Toy Story 4, the expectations were raised to a higher level of excellence.

Fans were excited to learn that original voice actors Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, and Samuel L. Jackson would be reprising their respective roles as Mr. Incredible (Bob Parr), Elastigirl (Helen Parr), Violet Parr, and Frozone (Lucius Best).
However, Disney and Pixar Animation revealed that there would be new faces that would be joining the cast. The first noticeable addition to the cast is voice actor Huck Milner, who will voice Dash Parr. Milner replaces original voice actor Spencer Fox, who previously voiced Dash in the original film.
Bob Odenkirk is expected to voice telecommunications tycoon Winston Deavor, who is a massive fan of the superheroes. Deavor wants to bring the superheroes back into the public eye after being in the shadows for decades.
Actress Catherine Keener will voice Deavor's sister, Evelyn, who is a genius intellect and is a very determined woman who has not been bamboozled by a problem.
