Incredibles 2 has arrived on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On-Demand, and it is full of fantastic extras! While reuniting with the beloved characters, we also get to go behind the scenes, hear from creators, and enjoy even more laughs.
The short film Bao preceded the movie in theaters and is included. But we also get a sort of “making of” feature which made me enjoy and understand the short even more. Even learning that the title, when said one way means a steamed bun and another way means something precious, gave it so much more depth.
The new mini-movie, Auntie Edna shows us what happens when Edna babysits Jack-Jack for the night and what her process looks like. She watches his powers (with a few surprises!), and then she gets to work on his suit. This one was hilarious.
The Coolest Guy in Show Business is an intriguing look at Samuel l. Jackson and Frozone. I enjoyed learning about his background and what makes him tick. Seeing him discuss his limited world growing up versus the unlimited world of comic books was powerful.
Probably my favorite of the extras is Paths to Pixar: Everyday Heroes. People who worked on the film talk about work-life balance and how it plays out in the movie. It sounds mundane, but it was fascinating. Seeing the correlations between real-life families and the Supers on screen made the film even more relatable. And the discussion about how Jack-Jack is the perfect toddler is spot on. Parents especially will appreciate this feature.
Additionally, there are super scene breakdowns, more behind-the-scenes features, character theme songs, animation outtakes, a music video, and more. The extras on this are great.
